Happy Monday

Hello Again,

     I know that Monday usually does not bring to mind many happy thoughts, especially for those who work hard all during the week, but we are alive and for this I am truly grateful.

     I am still in the process of editing and posting photos of my Colorado trip, trying to break them down by city and I am also trying not too post too many photos at once…I know they can be hard to view otherwise.So in lieu of Colorado, today in 1derland we are going to take a little detour back to Florida’s Treasure Coast.

     This past weekend was Memorial Day, for those who celebrate, and although I did not attend any patriotic events (thanks to a wisdom tooth extraction), I did get a chance to visit one of my favorite places, the Atlantic Ocean. Starting with the IRSC Marine and Science Center, I snapped a few of the more picturesque things I saw today.

One of the most common sights to see on the water are the docks, this one in particular caught my attention, as did this super monstrous Ficus Tree overlooking the water. For anyone who has ever thought they might like a ficus….really zoom in there, this ficus will uproot the foundation of your house. 😦

I don’t know what it is about sunset on the water that brings to mind a peaceful easy feeling, but some days I could just spend forever here looking out over the water, and I envy the people who spend their days here fishing and enjoying their lives. Makes me almost want to buy a boat…almost.

Updating Colorado Photographs

Hello Again Dear Reader,

     I know it has been awhile, it takes time to pick and edit photographs, as I have so many photos that I want to share with you. I suppose I should just add one or two at a time, but that would take far too long, and I cannot leave even one out, I am so attached. Even so, as always I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I did taking them.

Garden of The Gods

Hello Again Dear Reader,
     One of the most beautiful places I have visited in Colorado is the Garden of The Gods. This scenic and awe inspiring recreational area- free to the public, as declared by the family of its founder Charles Elliott Perkins, is a must-see for anyone traveling in this part of the country. There are dozens of mammoth rock formations that seem to literally grow from the Earth. While walking through the public paths, you can see many types of wildlife…deer and birds in particular. I managed to snap quite a few photos of free roaming deer and birds perched and nesting everywhere.
     I could have spent days and days photographing this beautiful place and wish that I had more time to do so, but my companions and I hoped to get in a few more sights, before The Garden closed for the day.
     If you should ever get a chance to visit Garden of the Gods,  I was there in February, make sure that you take comfortable shoes. Because although you can drive through the “Garden”, it is much more enjoyable if you leisurely stroll through this beautiful and wondrous place. Enjoy!
