Softer than Soft

image1Photo Friday Theme:  Soft

This sweet little cat is Rue. She is my daughter’s cat and is named after a character from the book, “The Hunger Games.” Rue is sweet as can be but is also a tough kitty – she rules over the household including the german shepherd.

Her fur is like the coat of a bunny, softer than a stuffed animal. When she snuggles up to you, she is a little fuzzy ball of warmth! Softer than soft…

A morning stroll along Hollywood Beach Walk where I captured the beach framed by the architectural elements along the boardwalk.

Details Make the Difference

DSC_0446Theme – Details by Kim

This day was a wonderful one to experience as an auntie. My niece has a horse who had been out to pasture for quite a while and they have been retraining him. She loves him dearly and rides him for rodeo events like barrels and poles but he has been quite stubborn. The last time she rode him, he just took off with her on him, which was quite scary.

I was there the day for her lesson where a good friend and mentor called to let her know they had put a different bit on her horse. With that and some prayer, her horse had totally changed demeanor.

I saw her ride with joy and that her horse respond to all of her signals with the correct bit in his mouth. Her smile was something that brought joy to everyone and her friends cheered her on and were happy that the details had all come together for a better riding relationship!

Dreaming in Aquamarine

My favorite range of colors fall into the many shades of and closest to Aquamarine. This was taken off the shore of Bahia Honda State Park. Loving the little sand bar Isle off to the top right!

Wish I had a boat to anchor off of that spot for the day! Maybe next trip…

This shot was taken while I was exploring Universal Orlando as my girls were on a ride I didn’t want to ride. I love the lighting of the building against the strong blue darkness of the clouds.

Photo Friday Theme – Mountain

This photo was from The Lake Hotel in Killarney, which is nestled on the lake of Lough Lein, Killarney’s lower lake. The magnificent view has a backdrop of the mountain-ringed Black Valley and the 12th century McCarthy Mór castle ruins.

I would love to go back to explore the Killarney National Forest!
