I Give Thanks for the Sea

Have some images from my writing retreat at Ocean City Maryland, from Thanksgiving and the following weekend. There is nothing quite as beautiful as the edge of the world, all water and light.

Just Some Postcards from Florida

I havent been to Florida for fun in quite a while, and I recently returned from a visit to friend Ferne in St. Petersburg. I had a marvelous time and loved the city, the Gulf, the relaxing, the shopping, and my friend’s excellent hospitality.

Here are some highlights:

Snell Island sentinal: my pal the Great Blue Heron keeping watch over Smacks BayouI loved the old-growth trees! St. Petersburg has some lovely older neighborhoods with shady tropical charm.

The iconic Palmetto tree

Sandpipers in flight

Waiting for the green flash

As you can see, I thoroughly enjoyed my days in the sun!
