What's in Your Wallet?

A little less will be in our wallet at the end of the month when we return from a short trip away to the St. Augustine, Florida area.



But we should have a lot of photos to share while staying here! And I should have a nice time watching the ocean waves rolling in...and out...in...and out...calmly, peacefully, happily on vacation...

And we have sent George, our red-eyed tree frog, with all his accoutrements, back to his original Mommy for a while.



Photos from last year's trip to northeastern Florida:














A little wading bird, trying to keep his feet dry. And Spanish moss. (These two photos by Jerry).

I am happy anywhere there is Spanish moss hangs off the trees. Remember that Gordon Lightfoot song:

"Spanish moss, hanging down
Sweeter than the summer love we found."

I always find myself humming this when walking through gardens and live oaks draped with Spanish moss.

Have a wonderful trip to St. Augustine. Jim and I went there a few years ago and fell in love with it. I'm looking forward to seeing your photos.

Jerry's a great photographer. Look forward to seeing what he finds on this trip and any of your own sketches. Have fun in that lovely Florida sunshine.

I love seeing the photo of the Spanish moss. I live in NC and we see it in different place...but not as much as we did when I was younger.

No painting or even sketching for me but lots of photos to share when we get them all loaded and ready to go :)
