The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.

The End Of Summer?

theme – the end of summer

The end of summer. A time when everyone begins to move indoors.  A time when the beaches become deserted and ice cream is eaten less often.

Wait a minute, this is Florida. The summer never really ends. Stay outside, eat ice cream and enjoy those sandy beaches.  - Diane

Just Another Day in Paradise

theme – season of sun

We had a week to vacation with the girls in May when college ended and before the summer plans began. While staying on Summerland Key, we took a few trips to Bahia Honda Park for their beautiful beaches and snorkeling.

Henry Flagler’s railroad to Key West turned the remote island of Bahia Honda Key into a tropical destination. Today, the island is home to one of Florida’s southernmost state parks! Just a little slice of sun, fun and paradise. –Kim

It was truly a paradise. As I sit in 28 degree weather, I am day dreaming about my time there! - Kim

Flying Lesson

theme – best of 2012

I am not a beach person. Every spring break the kids drag me there a few times that week. I just wanted to read and enjoy the sunshine and my coffee. (My kids are teenagers so I don’t have to worry too much about them while at the beach.) I grabbed the camera as a last-minute thing while running out the door. I am glad I did. I have seen many seagulls but never a family with little ones. I spent most of the day with camera in hand and book in the beach bag. – Diane
