Flagler House


theme – piece of history

The Flagler house, or Whitehall, was the 75 room, 100,000 square foot winter home of Henry Flagler and his wife. It is in Palm Beach Florida and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Henry Flagler was an American industrialist, a key figure in the development of the east coast of Florida, and the founder of the Florida East Coast Railway.

Summer Places


theme: summer

One of my favorite places to be in the summer. This is the Quarter Moon Shop on Topsail, NC. They have the best books from local and Indie authors, the best summer trinkets, and the absolute best iced coffees. Seriously, their Milky Way and White Whale smoothies are to die for. I almost forgot to mention the always happy and helpful staff. When I am on Topsail, I make sure this is a daily stop for me. Oh how I wish I could be there now.

Pretty Petals


theme: flowers

My daughter picked out the most beautiful bouquet for my birthday since my husband was out-of-town. She also found two local, little mom and pop type book stores to take me too. I will remember this birthday for a long time.

Flying Lesson

theme – beach

I found this family of seagulls while at the beach with my family. I realized I had never seen a family of seagulls with babies before. What a treat to watch.

Distant Sunset


theme: distant

I do not enjoy flying. If I have to fly I do it with the shades drawn. I have seen some spectacular photos my co-author has taken from a plane, so on this particular trip I tried to raise the shade for a few brief moments. Just enough time to capture this sunset.
