Chasing Clouds

The past several weeks I seem to be chasing clouds. Clouds at sunrise,

clouds at sunset,

clouds  at all times of the day.

More than once, I’ve pulled the car into a parking lot so I can get a better look and a picture of clouds.

I find it incredibly amazing how at every sunset, the sky is a different shade. No cloud is ever in the same place. Each day is a new masterpiece. A new wonder. A new memory. ~Sanober Khan

The more often we see the things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less. ~Joseph B. Wirthlin

We pledge to fight ‘blue-sky thinking wherever we find it. Life would be dull if we had to look up at cloudless monotony day after day. ~Gavin Pretor-Pinney

Lake Weir: A Perfect Place for a Mini-Vacation

With all our travels throughout Florida bicycling, fishing, turtle watching, and visiting state parks, it’s good to spend some time relaxing at the lake.

Sitting on the porch. Reading in the hammock. Enjoying a cold drink on the beach at sunset.

Skiing (actually serving as the spotter for the skier).

Swimming, fishing, watching the wildlife…what a great way to spend the day.

A day at the lake is a perfect mini-vacation any day of the week!
