Sunday Afternoon


Welcome to the 45th run of "Sunday Favorites"!!!

"Sunday Favorites" is a Sunday meme designed to give bloggers a chance to share a favorite post from the past! Thanks to  Happy to Design for hosting this event!

It’s a beautiful day here in Florida...perfect for relaxing. Of course, if you know me, I can only enjoy relaxing for a little while and then I’m ready to GO somewhere! Here I am on Jekyll Island last week. Latitude 31 is an AMAZING place to eat! I had Grouper Hemingway with Key Lime pie for dessert! Delicious!


I hope you’ll all click on my One World One Heart post HERE to follow me and close to a thousand other bloggers on the Magic Carpet ride!


I’d like to share a few more vacation photos today.



You never know where the road will lead....


This is the largest suspension bridge in Georgia!


Take a deep breath....let’s GO!!!

I am very blessed.  Happy Sunday!

Your pictures are wonderful.
Regarding the post, since marriage which was 52 and 1/2 years ago I have only been on the first page. We are real homebodies.
when I was a kid I did a lot of traveling with my mom and aunt. I will always remember our trip to my mom's home in Canada. Then when I was around 14 my mom and I traveled across the United States by Greyhound bus. Interestin, fun, and tiring.
I loved it though.

In fact, the second photo of those golden reeds in the water...along with the palm trees lining the just gorgeous!!! It's my favorite!'s just 9:30am here right honestly the Grouper Hemmingway isn't sounding so good...just because it's a little early...but a piece of key lime pie sounds divine! Hehe! I really do love seafood...and I'm sure that given just a couple of hours...I would love to give it a try! Hehe!

Thank you so much, Diane...for participating in Sunday Favorites!!! It's such a pleasure to have you and I hope that you'll join in with the fun again! Loved all of your beautiful vacation photos!
