Good Fences #31

I kept an eye out for Good Fences while on vacation, too. My long-suffering hubby was so patient while I made frequent stops to photograph everything I saw. 

This Great Egret mingled with the visitors in the park. It timidly moved step by step as everyone with a camera gathered around for photo ops.

If you look closely, there’s a fence at the base of the lighthouse.

I liked the colorful houses at Kure Beach, NC. It was such a happy place, though that area bears the brunt of many an Atlantic hurricane.

Wild Bird Wednesday #119–Brown Pelican

I’d better hurry and post if I want to get the Brown Pelican in while it is still Wednesday! I got carried away sorting photos into albums and the time flew by. We saw so many Brown Pelicans while we were vacationing along the lower east coast of the U.S. This one had the prime spot on a piling while the others waited patiently on the pier for their ship to come in.

Share Your World–2014 Week 42

Cee has prepared questions for us once again. That week number is drawing closer to 52; can we really be ten weeks from 2015? (See how I’m already practicing 2015, so when 2015 rolls around, I shall adapt quickly?) Ha! We’ll see if that works! 

What would be your preference, awake before dawn or awake before noon?
8:00 a.m. works best for me, I guess I’m splitting the difference. 

If you could choose between Wisdom and Luck, which one would you pick?
Wisdom.

If you were given the opportunity for free skydiving lessons would you take them? Why or why not?
I’d like to wait until that opportunity presents itself before making a decision. We took a helicopter ride while on vacation. I think I’d prefer staying inside the vehicle–but one never knows!

Is the glass half empty or half full? What is in the glass?
I don’t know about the glass, but my shoes are full of sand. ;)

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful we had a few days and perfect weather to be free to explore new places; I’m looking forward to a writing workshop Saturday and getting back to church Sunday after missing a couple of weeks with travel. I’m also grateful our pastor’s video messages are available on the church’s website,
kpc.org. It’s not the same as being there in person, though.
