Hot Dog Boat

I almost forgot about this picture.  The first time I saw the Hot Dog Boat I thought it was the greatest thing.  When we went to Sandsprit park…

Great Blue Heron

I believe this is a Great Blue Heron.  Or maybe it's just a Grey Heron?  It's a bird that's most likely a heron.  I even asked someone what…

Banana Bush

This is a banana bush in my uncle's backyard in Florida.  Not a tree but a bush…I kept mistakenly calling it a banana tree.  I really have nothing…

City Place

Sticking with yesterday's theme, here's another building that shows off the architecture in Florida.  This was taken at City Place in West Palm Beach.  I processed this photo…

Spanish Style

I really enjoy the architecture in Florida.  Or should I say I really like the look of the spanish style architecture in Florida.  The red tile roofs, stucco…

Jupiter Light

This is the Jupiter Lighthouse.  It was taken from the dock at the Square Grouper: Tiki Bar at Castaway's Mariner (see yesterday's post).  I thought it would be…

Tiki Hut

This is the Square Grouper: Tiki Bar at Castaway's Mariner in Jupiter, Florida.  It's a really fun place to hang out and have a drink (and even a…

Pelican Perch

I mentioned pelicans in yesterday's post so it seemed fitting to post one today.  There's something about pelicans that fascinate me.  Maybe it's the fact that I don't…

Sandsprit Park

On the left is Sandsprit Park.   This is a wonderful park that is only 2 miles from where my parents are staying.  They do a great job of…

Water Home

My uncle use to have a boat in Florida.  While I don't like to go out on the open ocean, all that much, I do enjoy riding up…

Polly want a sandwich?

Mom and I drove over to Jupiter Island and parked at the beach so we could walk around the area for exercise (well mostly we gawked at the…

River Walk Dock

One more shot from the Stuart River Walk.  This is one of the few docks I saw in Florida that said "No Fishing."  You could fish under the…

River Walk

This is the river walkway in Stuart, Florida that runs along the St. Lucie river.  In the background you can see the Roosevelt Bridge.  The walkway and the…

Man of War

Yesterday I mentioned how inviting the water was at the beach, yet I didn't go in.  Well, besides not having a bathing suit on that day, seeing these…

Jupiter Beach

At first I wasn't sure which photo I should use as the first one to showcase my vacation but then I came across this one.  The colors of…

Scituate Lighthouse 2

This is the last photo from the Scituate Lighthouse and my last day in Florida.  It's going to be hard to leave the 80 degree weather and head…

Music Man

I sometimes wish I knew how to play an instrument.  I took guitar as a kid for a few months but the strings hurt my fingers and my…

Silky Water

Recently, I read in a photography book how to set your camera to take pictures that make the water look silky.  When I was taken photos of the Scituate…

Put em Up

I love this little guy.  While I was taking another picture he sort of ran over near me.  I think he thought I was going to steal his nuts…

Scituate Sunset

This picture doesn't do the colors justice.  I tried but just couldn't seem to pull the colors out as I remember them in person.  It had a rainbow…

Nighthouse

Another shot of the Scituate Lighthouse.  This one was taken about a half hour after the sun had set.  I like how it makes everything blue in the…
