Memories of Vacation, and vacations past.
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.
