I've spent days putting together a slide show (my first attempt) accompanied by music in my photoshop program. Unfortunately, now that it is done, I'm having trouble uploading it to my blog. I'll need to have a session with my son, my computer guru. Till then I hope you enjoy these pictures of some of the local Caribbean flora we enjoyed on our vacation.

"Each of us is in truth an idea of the Great Gull, an unlimited idea of freedom,... ."
From Johnathan Livingston Seagull
Seagulls were everywhere as we left port, swooping and soaring. They seemed to be having such a good time. These are just a few I caught with my camera.

Be an explorer. The universe is filled with wonder and magical things. ~ Flavia
Click, Click. Just a few of the 350+ photos I took during our holiday cruise. I'm sure you'll be seeing more in the future. Digital photography makes it so easy to snap and delete, I get greedy. I really have to learn moderation!

If any of you have wondered if moving, salt water can freeze, wonder no more. The answer is YES. The last two mornings the water near the shore sported a small accumulation of ice. But any accumulation of ice is too much for me. I want to know who stole my warm weather. Just return it, no questions asked!

On our recent visit to Key West, I walked along a side street and came upon this little church with its arched window over its door. The palms, near and far, were reflected in the stained glass, that was sporting its own leaves.

"There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing." ~Alfred Wainwright
We left the outside faucet dripping last night to prevent the pipes from freezing. The wind obviously blew the water onto the azaleas and this morning they were wearing a coat of ice.

"The crew of the caravel "Nina" also saw signs of land, and a small branch covered with berries. Everyone breathed afresh and rejoiced at these signs." ~Christopher Columbus
Sunday we went to see the replicas of the caravels ther Nina and the Pinta in Pensacola. They were berthed at Palafox Pier on the ends of two finger piers. Unfortunately by the time we arrived, the sun was in ther worse possible position for photo taking. To get the sun to my back, I would have had to be able to walk on water--very cold and very deep water. So while we enjoyed touring the ships and talking with members of the crew, I came away with only a few decent pictures.
