Travel blogging can be full of surprises. Readers, my recent trip to St. Augustine, Florida was a vacation spot you do not want to miss. It was quite a special experience seeing the oldest European city in the United States. I thought it would be fun to begin a blogging series of random photos and share of few interesting facts along the way.
In April of this year, I had the pleasure of visiting Long Beach, Long Island, NY. It was for a reunion with an old Army Buddy from my Desert Storm Days. WE had not seen each other for almost 25 years. It was a great feeling to see my friend and to her delight she could not wait for me to see her beautiful town that she resided in called Long Beach. She took such pride in showing me around and giving me the “grand tour” of the area. Neither of us thought that only 6 months later, the whole area would be devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Please enjoy these photos from my Panasonic DMC-ZR1.
May God Grant You Peace As You View My Photos Knowing God Repairs and Heals The Broken Hearted.
I was born on Maxwell Air Force Base in 1963 in Montgomery, Alabama. I guess you could say I was born in the middle of the Civil Rights Era timewise and location wise. My father was in the military. We only lived there a short while and moved again. However, by the time I was 13 years old, my parents decided to retire there. I ended up living in a town I was born in, but I never wanted to live there again. Go figure. I was a teenager and my parents moved me from Hawaii. How would you feel?
Alabama grew on me and I still call it my hometown even though my home is now in Seattle, Washington. Here are a few shots taken by myself and a great friend I went to school with in Alabama. Donna Noble Burnett is an amazing photographer and gave me permission to share of her work alongside mine. My BLOG is grateful. Enjoy:
Until my next installment. Thank you for stopping by. Ya’ll come back now.
