The Marriott's Ocean Pointe Vacation Club
... our room was on the 7th floor of this bldg,
just 1/2 way back

our balcony views ...

calm beach ...

... not so calm beach
(balcony view)

brought home at least 30 lbs. of shells!
had to buy a new suitcase to get them back to CT

loved this bamboo seaside treasure pole erected in the sand at the beach in front of our bldg to memorialize some loved ones 

(R & W said it was gone the day after WE left ... where did it go?)

loved it a REAL lot!

the bench set before the bamboo totem
West Palm flower
a beach creature

love was in the air
(and on the balcony)
in West Palm Beach ..
"the kiss!"

... well and then ...

... and then ...
... and then they were done ...
our only real venture out other than for food was to McCarthy's Wildlife Sanctuary Inc. what an awesome place! An interesting collection of exotic animals confiscated by wildlife officers from previous owners because of neglect, abuse, or illegal possession.
Sabi the white Tiger!
a Bengal Tiger

a fuzzy Tarantula

the twins ... Florida Panthers

a Tortoise
Rog and a Lemur

an Albino Burmese Python

WIP ~ Cypress Knees!

GOD makes the best stuff! Check out this picture of two Cypress knees! Cypress knees are root projections that extend above the water and "snorkel" air to the submerged roots of Cypress trees. "Auntie" brought them back from Florida (I assume) many, many, years ago. There are some at the cottage and I managed to procure these two from Auntie's home in East Hartford. You know I can't part with these types of treasures. A few months ago, one of the pieces began to take on a new purpose ... I painted it white ...

...played with some scary Halloween designs ...

... and some vintage Scrabble tiles ...

... and hopefully, I will have the finished creation done soon ...

Have a GOOD Friday!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

The University of Utah Red Rocks


Have you been reading Bryan's articles in the Daily Utah Chronicle ~ all 79 of them? I so look forward to mornings and my online addition of the DUC. Bryan is the lead Gymnastics sports writer for the Red Rocks. Did you check out the above "YouTube" video?  The narrated story was written by Bry.  (oops they spelled his name wrong in the credits)  
The girl's are ranked No. 2 in the nation!

Read Bryan's article from today!
