Once Upon a Time….

there was a crazy lady Princess that liked to take her nice car horse drawn carriage and go off road on country lanes!

She liked to go to the countryside (or Halpata Tastanaki Preserve) with her camera sketch pad and pencils.

Oh what beauty everywhere she looks!

And when she gets home she can write all about it in a sonnet (or on her blog)!

And share her fun with….

Diane, That seems like a lot of wide open spaces for Florida. I had forgotten there are such places there. You are a princess. :):) Blessings, xoxo, Susie

teehee :)
I LOVE it all ...the telling, the teller, the tale.
Here's to dragons NEVER after.
We love to go adventuring too, especially now that our daughter lives in Central Florida area. We enjoyed visiting Mount Dora just last month. I couldn't believe we had never been there after living here so long.
Happy telling, sis.

I love a good fairytale. This countryside is so pretty. I can see why you wanted to go for a drive here. So much green and blue skies. What a lovely day you had.

Wow, Florida is so scenic. 'Haven't been there in many years though. Some of my family is in Cocoa Beach on vacation though currently. More perfect photos as well.

It is amazing out there and the horses are like the cherry on top!

I think that this Princess is very fortunate to live in such a beautiful area with so many wonderful places to visit. I'm glad she shares her good fortune with all of us in her sonnets! ;)

I love this post! And I love the pictures. I love driving those out of the way Florida back roads, so much more than the resort areas. I take my "carriage" as well, ha ha LOL I am SO GLAD THOSE DARN dragons didn't attack you today!! Hope your week is great so far! Hugs, my friend!

Cranberry Morning said...

I love that you do that! I've just started journaling and much of it ends up being sketching. What a pleasant way to spend a day! Keep those horse flies away!!
