Hard to tell who was more interested in who when I met this squirrel. Sadly, I think it was expecting a handout. Sorry, you’re barking up the wrong tree, little buddy.

The waning light, clarity of the shallow water, and reflection of puffy white clouds combined forces to create this mesmerizing dappled work of art. It was a fleeting moment that I’m glad I witnessed yesterday evening.I do love living here!
What a fantastic color! I arrived a bit early for sunset this evening and was delighted by the clarity and hue of the water. This area never ceases to amaze me!
Hard to believe it was in the 40s last night. Since the sun is hiding this weekend I thought I’d share a photo from when milder weather prevailed.
It was probably chilly that day and I know the water temperature hovered around 61 degrees yet somehow, it still looks warm and tropical.
Since cold, blustery weather has decided to interrupt our “summer” this weekend, I’ve decided to share some photos I snapped earlier this winter. Hard to complain about the temperatures when it’s this beautiful!
Worth the Trip
A good friend visiting from North Carolina was the extra incentive needed for me to make my first trip to St. Augustine. The warm and sunny weather was perfect for wandering the historic city’s streets.
While we only had part of a day to explore, we covered a lot of ground and it was a great overview. More importantly, we had a lovely time catching up. I know I’ll return someday for a more thorough exploration, though definitely not on a weekend (talk about crowded).
This sign caught my eye earlier today. Though it remains unclear if he was visiting from another planet when his spaceship broke down or if he built one with the intention of leaving Earth (if the latter, I can’t say I blame him).
Today’s cool and breezy weather chased all the tourists off my beach (which was perfectly fine by me).
End of an Era
This past weekend I bid adieu to my trusty companion of the last ten years. After traveling 164,000 miles across this country (through all of the lower 48 states excepting New York and the ones up in New England) the house battery in my 2012 Prius finally gave up.
After careful consideration, I decided not to spend the several thousand dollars to replace it. Instead, I purchased a new hybrid. I’m hoping my Kia Niro will be as reliable and long-lived.
And yes, for those of you who know me, she does already have sand in her. That’s life at the beach for ya…
