Have you ever been eager to share vacation photos with someone, only to have them lose interest after viewing the first hundred or so? Well, because I adore you all, I have sorted through the least boring ones. But first, I thought it might be fun to share a few of my more, um…strange vacation pictures from over the years.
OK, enough of that. I was just stalling. Turns out, my vacation photos are in fact, pretty boring – the memories are SO much better. Here is a condensed version of what I did and saw last week:
Dead Lakes State Park was an area I would have loved to explore more of. Supposedly, these cypress trees you see in the photo died when a flood came through the area. This was the best photo I could get from land, however to really appreciate the beauty of this area one needs a boat, which we did not have access to. For some stunning photos of the haunting trees in this park, go here to the site of photographer, Allen Rokach.
I do have a short video that I took, which I love and wanted to share with you. The water along the shoreline was filled with various marine life, from stingrays to countless varieties of fish – and lots of hermit crabs. I especially enjoyed watching them as they crawled around in the various shells they chose to inhabit and call home. This particular crab was living in a shell that had an entire ecosystem on his back.
So, as I settle back in to my own home, I will leave you with this:
Did you notice the smaller shell attached to the left side? There was a smaller creature living in there, too! Every lump and bump on his home had smaller marine life living inside. Amazing.
Have a great Wednesday, everyone. Love the home you’re in.
