We attended The Festival of Trees in downtown Fort Myers, last evening! The beautifully decorated trees are sponsored by different businesses and then auctioned off to the highest bidder, proceeds are then donated to charity. 
Excited to have had my camera in hand, my shutter finger was a'clicken! 
 I would like to use one of the photos for our Christmas card but just can't make up my mind. 
Partial to the last two though! 
Have a wonderful week!

Photography Can Be Dangerous!

mystery bicycle by the sea...
such joy and levity you bring to me...
you bathe my heart in harmony...
"The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate."
~Oprah Winfrey~
After enjoying a great dinner in Bokeelia, Pine Island, Florida, with hubby and our visiting son we headed home. It was about six o'clockish, daylight retiring, a bit chilly and overcast. My shutter finger itching to capture me a photo of interest. Well ask and you shall receive! Round the bend I could see a hint of color and asked hubby to slow down, so I could investigate! How did I miss this one on the ride down, I thought?

There it was in all it's glory, a hand painted bike resting between two large palm trees begging to be captured. Hubby yelled at me to be careful as we were parked on a curve. Sometimes my excitement takes over common sense and I expect the waters to part so I can photograph! 
Click, click, click, I then realized where I was standing!!! Red ant hills everywhere and God only knows what lived under that scrubby brush??? Insects here are on steroids, I escaped unscathed, my creative beast almost satisfied!
So lucky am I though to have had dinner with two of my favorite guys and to have found this glorious bike displayed for the enjoyment of all that passed her. 
Guess it's all those little things we need to appreciate, those little things we need to celebrate! 

I used kim Klassen's texture, Kristin @ 85%.

The sun was setting and the wind picked up...
it was time to go home....
Our son Chris is visiting us here in Florida and we are thrilled to have him! His wife Allicyn is away on business and could not join him! Chris is a long time professional angler and used to guide in Key West, Florida and Westport, MA. He and Allicyn now reside in Falmouth, MA.
Chris recently started a custom rod building business along with Allicyn, his chief financial advisor and business consultant. Together they are quite the team. His years of experience on the water and knowledge of the habits of many species of fish has led him to design a great product!
You can visit his website @: He also blogs about his experiences and we laughed about blogging together later this week! Who would have thought it???
He will be visiting Key West in a few days to fish with his friend Aaron Snell to film and photograph for his website, parts of which are still under construction!
Recently he fished with with Michael Hogan, owner of Hogy Lures who wrote a great blog about fishing with Chris, using a light tackle travel rod designed by Chris. You can read about it here @:
You can also visit him on his Facebook page @:
Just a little "plug" for a "reel" great couple who "reelly" know their stuff!!!
