I've many passions but two of them are reading & camping, so naturally my camper's name is Parnassus for Christopher Morely's "Parnassus on Wheels".

Forty-one years of life in New England has taught me one important thing: that sunny days are a gift to be cherished! I haven't had much time to spend on the blogs lately due to various family and work obligations, but I have still had many opportunities to visit with nature and revel in it's many wonders! I have seen deer stop to ponder the strange critters (my dog Sammy & me) coming their way before moving off to more private environs; owls peering down imperiously from their lofty perches to glare at us; the tiny river islands that hide the nests of pelicans, storks, egrets and all the other breeding water birds, their chirping, fluff bedecked babies hidden by thick foliage; beautiful butterflies wafting on orange blossom scented breezes to flit from flower to flower; the shy bobcat putty-footing it's way down a dirt road in front of us as we strolled along at a distance behind; glistening fish in a sparkling creek, thinking fishy thoughts and sunsets that stained the skies and clouds a deep rose color that was so stunning it brought tears to my eyes. Granted, New England can brag on it's own scenery, but so often it is hidden by gloomy weather, or buried under snow. Here in Florida, Mother Nature is an extrovert who dazzles us with her extraordinary show. And I am so grateful for the chance to experience it!
