Kids Flying High

The kids are getting older and harder to surprise.  So this year, we arranged for them to go parasailing off Ft Myers Beach. The sail's smiley face was pale in comparison to the big grins on their was an awesome afternoon! Next time...I'll go :o)  If you're ever in Ft. Myers and want to give it a try...I highly recommend "Paradise Parasailing"...they were real professionals!

Tonight's Rainbow - Skywatch Friday

We were heading to deliver toys to an orphanage in South Florida, it's been raining all day...and I have to imagine that God was blessing our mission because we were rewarded with this beautiful double full rainbow! I was taking the pics through the car windows because a co-worker was on a business call so to noisy to put down the window...but they didn't come out too bad considering.

Wishing you all a very Merry full of family, love and miracles!

Mommie...come me!

This is Tiffany...she's sweet as sugar and is persistant. She lays on me and gives me a gentle stick with her paw (claws) to make sure I stay focused :o)

Skywatch Friday - Early to Work Pays Off

Wednesday I had an early meeting so got in around 6:15...just enough time to head to the balcony and capture the sunrise over Biscayne Bay.  Well worth getting up early...although I'm sure it'll be hard to remember that the next time my alarm goes off at 4:15 am :o)

Wispy Clouds Over South Miami

This was taken the night of the full moon (see post called "fly me to the moon") but from the other side of the building facing southwest.

Showing Some Leg

I thought this bird looked so he was busting a move (electric slide?) or showing off his skinny bird leg.  Whatever...doesn't look like it was going to last long with that wave hovering :o)

Wind Blown Pine

This was taken along the Sanibel causeway during the last minutes of the sunset.  The wind was blowing quite hard and in the low light I couldn't capture the details in the tree, but in retrospect I kind of like how the movement is captured in the pine...helps me remember the evening better :o)

Sunset Delicacy

While watching the sunset this bird flew right in and crept along the shore looking for a little something to eat.  I remained still, hidden by the trees so he wouldn't get spooked and fly off.  Eventually he made a capture and flew off.

Hungry Pelican

While watching the sunset recently we noticed alot of pelicans soaring over the surface and then nose diving right into the water to capture their dinner. Looking at the sequence of these two photos I know this isn't the same one, but it sure does look like it :o) Wonder how they can see the fish in such low light?

Bowman's Beach Shoreline - Watery Wednesday

This was taken as we watched the sun go down at Bowman's Beach on Sanibel Island. It's a very lively beach with the waves crashing onto the shore. I love that sound!

Fly Me To The Moon

Heading out from work tonight and the full moon was hanging over the city. It was beautiful! So I headed upto the 15th floor balcony to get a few pictures. In this one I caught a flight heading out of Miami International Airport. When I got home to view the pictures this one reminded me of a boss I worked with that used to sing "Fly Me to the Moon" all the time :o)
