Our condo is among those on the left. Perfect location!




Feb. 5th...low 60s

My daughter, Amber, and her friend, Erika, were visiting in the Orlando area and took an afternoon to drive over here and spend some time with me. We did a drive around the St. Augustine area, looking around, then we decided to visit the Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum. It was FUN! and interesting!



Made from car bumpers. GORGEOUS!


Erika trying out the "WIZARD"...remember the movie "Big" with Tom Hanks???


 Amber and me.


Literally "BAD TO THE BONE"


Ok...1400 lbs might be considered over weight...


 Amber interfering with a guy trying to get a
pic of his girl friend...ok, I confess, they are not real!


Amber and Erika




Feb. 1st...day 1 in Florida! 78 degrees!!

The view from our balcony! Yep, I love it!!

The stairs down to the beach...OUR beach! mmmm

 Sun setting behind our condo...yep, I'm standing in the ocean.




Jan. 30th, on our way down to sunny FL, Gerri and I took a side trip to Savannah, GA. It was a great, though, brief visit! Here are some pics from there.

Getting ready for a "Ghost" walk.  Lovely evening for Jan. 30th.
(Gerri is in the white-very ghostly) lol


Note the blue dots..."those are ORBS", according to the "ghost" host. You are suppose to zoom in on them an see a face. Let me just say, I didn't recognize anyone! LOL




Standing outside the historic cemetery, I looked up and saw a very big moon. ooooo


 BOO!


The next day we took a wonderful trolley tour of beautiful Savannah!
AND, I do mean BEA-U-TI-FUL!!

Our host, George, driving us down the Riverside Walk...plenty of cobble stones.


Just a bit of the awesomeness! :-)

Yep...just for giggles...my 2014 Christmas tree...before, AND after...the tree was gone the day after Christmas. Shortest time my tree has ever been up. Usually I like it up until a week after New Year's day. NOT this year! LOL




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

July 25th - August 1st was a wonderful time!! I so enjoyed my week stay with the Chaneys at Bear Lake in Lakewood. It's beautiful there and Sue and I LOVE bird watching! There weren't too many different ones this year but I did manage to catch a couple of good photos! God's creations will never cease to A-MAZE me!!





May was a great month for my bird watching!! How I love watching those beautiful creatures...they come and go and how I wish they'd stay!! lol







These are Baltimore and Orchard Orioles!! Wish they were still around!! Hungry little buggers!!




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

April 22 was a fun day at the bird feeders...I even missed photos of the Cardinals, Cowbirds (yes, I like them too!), Starlings (who cares, HA), and a Brown Creeper. I'm always ready with my camera but they aren't always ready to have their photos taken. hehe
