How about a drive to the coast?

We drove to the Gulf coast to eat Almond encrusted Grouper today

and see what birds we could see!

DSCN4893

Driving to Peck's we saw an Eagle but I couldn't get a photo of it. What a majestic bird....our best sighting of the day! Oh, and do you think we should buy this' fixer upper' and rent rooms?

DSCN4905

Do you want to get signed up to stay on the coast this summer? heehee! (I am JUST kidding! EEEEE!!!)

This is an Ibis...probably a young one...

DSCN4891

And this is a swallow tail Kite. It's a large bird and exciting to see!

DSCN4902

It soared above us....

DSCN4903

We stopped to get gas and saw this boat...scary? heeheehee!

DSCN4908

And then this large turtle was going right into traffic!

DSCN4911

We were still in the parking lot of the service station so I grabbed my camera! ( I have no idea if I would have been brave enough to grab this big turtle)

DSCN4912

but this lady jumped out and picked him up off the busy highway before I had a chance to figure out what to do! His legs were kicking like crazy!

DSCN4911

We stopped at the canal on our way back and saw a big beautiful Osprey.

DSCN4930

Then it was a quick stop in Dunellon at my favorite antique store to buy some MORE soap and a couple of hand made bracelets that I haven't taken photos of yet.

DSCN4935

This photo has a glare from my side window. We are driving down the highway at 60 mph. We can't stop to take every beautiful sight I see! lol Hope you've had a wonderful day! It was 80 degrees here.... and the sky was bright blue! Glorious!

And now to add to my post...

My girlfriend Theresa at Faerie Moon Creations wrote a beautiful post today and she mentioned a blogger that makes gorgeous jewelry out of the shells she finds here in Florida. I really fell in love with her jewelry and thought you might like to see what she's made in her shop.

Her blog is HERE and her ETSY shop is Orange Blossom Boutique !  I know you will love her jewelry!

It's always fun to have some pretty new jewelry for Spring! Let's go shopping!!!

Creativity!

The weather has been glorious all week and what have I been doing? SEWING!

I am sewing up a storm! The projects I am working on are so much fun that I can't stop! I'll share them soon! I'm still working on perfecting a design. I always start with something simple and then embellish!
