Alphabe-Thursday – Beaches

At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun.” – Unknown

Ocean City, NJ & Cocoa Beach, FL

Some beach somewhere
There’s a big umbrella casting shade over an empty chair
Palm trees are growin’ and a warm breezes a blowing
I picture myself right there
On Some beach, somewhere

Be Yourself!

It has been a month since I updated this blog! “My bad”. The weeks before and after the holiday’s were busy, tiring times for me (as well as every one I am sure!)

I’m joining in for Camera Critters. I miss visiting all the amazing photos. Some day maybe I will find time to visit blogs again!

ABC and Watery Wednesday, MId Week Blues too. – Cocoa Beach

We are in the midst of a storm here in the Philadelphia suburbs that has encased us in ice.  What a winter we have had…. so for today, I would like to transport us to a place that is warm, watery, blue and starts with the letter C!

COCOA BEACH, FL.  When Tara and I lived in Orlando we were about 45 minutes from the beach.

Stop by the above blogs and check out what everyone is sharing this week.  In particular Rebecca is starting a new Project 64….. can you guess what it is?  Very cool, but you will have to visit her to see!

Watery Wednesday – A Day at the Beach


I am going to be busy packing for the next two weeks. I will try and visit as many posts as I can! I am moving from Florida to Pennsylvania in 13 days!

I could have just used my side yard for Watery Wednesday. Here in Orlando, we had been so dry, no rain in almost three weeks, but now it has been raining since Sunday!

Easter, our way – Part 1 – The Beach

Tara was awake bright and early this morning, which really surprised me. I guess some things never change when it comes to holidays. By 6:15, she had found the 18 eggs I had hidden and counted $15 (I didn’t realize I had put that much loot in the eggs!). We then decided we would head to the beach for sunrise, fully aware that we had only 40 minutes, and that was not quite enough time. We also hit horrible fog that really slowed things down. I can’t say I have driven in conditions like that in the 6 years we have lived here. Much like driving in a snow storm!
This is in the little village of Cocoa, and was good compared to earlier in the drive

As we crossed one of the bridges on our way to the beach, the sun was coming up and I snapped this picture through the windshield.

Once we neared the beach, and a packed parking lot at 7:15, I realized they probably had a sunrise service on the beach. Folks were leaving, and we easily found a spot in the quarter for 15 minute lot. I popped in two quarters, as we did not plan on staying, just a quick visit to walk in the sand and dip our toes in the surf. For us Pisces, the ocean puts us back in check!




There were many people wandering the beach this Easter morning, it was strange to see so many folks in street clothes as they were leaving from the church service. After a bit, we decided it was time to leave. I shot the pretty pink flowers in the parking lot!

As we headed toward home, Tara and I had a great conversation about religion. I love our talks in the car. Tara loves them too. My girl is a very bright insightful girl I tell you!

Next stop Downtown Disney (Part 2)
