A test of the broadcast system...

So I'm trying out the mobile blogger function. We'll see how this goes.

This is the painting progress so far.

I'm off to Hotlanta for the Performing Arts Exchange conference. See y'all soon!

I'm camera shopping...

My camera has been slowly dying. It used to take wonderful pictures. It has spiraled down toward okay pictures. It is moving toward "only okay to take pictures outside in full sunlight."

Now it won't import to iPhoto. Grr......

I had a whole post composed (in my head) about my new art grouping by our front door. I guess I'll have to save it. It's all about Jesus and Yoda (both of whom are displayed in the art grouping). They both say very wise things. Thematically, it works for me.

Anyway, I hated to leave you without a picture.

This is what was going on here last year. Wow, when you look at it that way, it's pretty impressive.

We're back...

So we made it back from the beach yesterday. We had a great time. There was lots of sitting on the beach and by the pool. I started the Twilight saga. I love it! I can't believe I waited so long to start reading it.
We only lost one day to the hurricane, and we even went to the beach yesterday morning. Look how much the surf has pick up in the pictures above and below.
Those are from yesterday morning. The rest of the time, the surf looked like this...

So clear and so blue. My family used to go to the beach every summer. My grandparents lived in Florida for a while, but when they moved back we would go to Pensacola, then Gulf Shores, then Fort Morgan, then Dauphin Island. I've also been to the beaches in South Walton county, Florida and our honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta. I don't remember ever seeing water this blue and clear. It was like bath water. You could stand four feet deep in the water and still see the fish nibbling on your toes.

I'm sure that the Caribbean is beautiful; I'd love to go there and check it out. I'm sure that Hawaii is impressive; I'd love to check those beaches out, too. However, Destin has the best beaches I've ever seen. And the crowds didn't get bad until Labor Day weekend. I will definitely be going back. A big THANKS to Lee for lending us the condo for a week.

I'm off to unpack and wash clothes, the unfortunate side effect from any vacation.
