Sunday Scenery – via nephew Ben


This awesome picture comes from my nephew, Ben, who is an accomplished and creative photographer. He has a wonderful eye! And that is coupled with a wanderlust that has taken him to many unique and out of the way corners of the world.

This shot was taken at his current place of employment, as a scuba instructor in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. If you want to learn how to scuba, this is the place to go!

Great job, Ben!


Lee, I hope this was alright, using someone else’s photo. But I thought it was exceptional, he IS my nephew, and I gave him all the deserved cred!

Sunday Scenery


This is Tarheel Ramblings Lee’s meme, and I like to play as often as I can.

I don’t know if it’s okay to put people in a “scenery” meme, but at least Gail is easy on the eyes, from all angles!  ; )

Gail in Punta Cana

This was taken on the day we arrived in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. It was Princess Gail’s first trip out of the country. There is just nothing like Caribbean water!

Sunday Scenery – Pinery Provincial Park


I’m playing again in the Sunday Scenery meme hosted by my friend, Lee, at Tarheel Ramblings.  

This beautiful place is in Pinery Provincial Park, on the south shore of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada. We spent many wonderful summer vacations there with family and friends, sometimes more than twenty of us. If you look closely, you can see my son, Kevin, and two of his friends playing frisbee in the water.

Sunday Scenery – Outer Banks, NC

  Outer Banks, NC

This is my offering for Sunday Scenery, a cool meme created by my friend, Lee, at Tarheel Ramblings. Check him out. Today he put up an absolutely awesome photo of the Blue Ridge in Boone, NC, in the northwest corner of the state. So I chose a pic I took at the other end of the state, at the Outer Banks around Kitty Hawk.

BTW, as an aside, I had gotten up very early on the morning I took this picture so I could watch the sunrise. I was on a college hunting trip with my son, Kevin, and a few of his friends, and we had stayed up very late the night before. The Best Part was the surprise of finding my son already outside, doing the same thing, waiting to enjoy the sunrise. The “nut” doesn’t fall too far from the tree!
