NO APOLOGIES I LOVE WATER


I make no apologies for the fact I love water and being around the ocean or a lake really floats my boat. I hate being landlocked. I will go out of my way to find a new beach or body of water to explore whenever the opportunity presents itself. Recently it did. We went on a mini vacation to the Heartland to a lake we’ve never been to before. It was in quite a nice Ohio State Park. We heard about it because every July they have a big country western concert there featuring popular stars, like Blake Shelton and Little Big Town. It is a hit with the local yokels and out-of-towners flock from miles around to attend.  Though there was no music playing the weekend we went, a fun time was had by my hubby and myself. I saw a baby heron. That made my day. Unfortunately couldn’t get a picture, try as I might. We love seeing all the wildlife, campers, boats and people… out and about. But mostly we love the boats. Nothing like being in a pontoon boat out in the middle of a nice lake to explore the sights. Have you ever been boating? Do you like it?

CARNIVAL TIME


When I was a small child... my parents and grandparents wanted me to go on a double Ferris Wheel at the state fair. I loudly screamed and protested my disinterest.  They couldn’t understand what was wrong with me. But it stemmed from fear, pure and simple. I was scared of heights. Ferris Wheels are pretty tall. I still get a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach when I see carnival rides. Especially the ones that fly high. Merry- go - Rounds are more my speed. They are down to earth. And so is the cotton candy readily available at such venues. This week a carnival came to town and I caught this picture of the Ferris Wheel being put together. Notice the missing cars haven’t been attached yet. In my mind they are better left undone, to disable them. Are you scared of something that is seemingly innocent?
