Our World , My World


Hello and happy Monday! Happy April to everyone too!

I am sharing more Florida images, these photos are from our 3rd visit on Jan 12th to the Blowing Rocks Preserve and Beach near Jupiter Florida. 

This day was more relaxed, we sat on the beach for a good part of the day. We watched the waves crashing on the rocks, I watched the Brown Pelicans flying along the beach. 




I sat for awhile on my beach chair and watch an artist paint this scene below. I was amazed at how fast she painted the scene. 



Not quite finished, but I think the artist did a beautiful painting. 


Waves crashing right in front of me, I was lucky I was not splashed. It might have felt good though, it was a hot sunny day.





I was enjoying the waves crashing on the rocks but I also enjoyed watching the groups of Brown Pelicans flying by. 




I tried practicing my flights shots, whenever the Pelicans came flying by me. 





We also  enjoyed the Blowing Rocks Preserve butterfly garden, we walked the boardwalk towards the Indian River Lagoon. 


I was surprised to see a shark swimming near the waves, I also saw a sea turtle. I could not catch them with my camera, they moved too quickly. 




Me and my shadow. 





Thanks for your visit today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.

  4. Why is it that birds only fly in V formation? Don't they know any other letters of the alphabets?

    God bless.

  6. You caught some great wave action! LOVE the brown pelicans...and that butterfly almost doesn't look real. But then when you really look at them, all butterflies are almost to pretty to be real. OH, and that painting is good.

  8. I felt the salt spray when i saw the next to last photo... i love salt spray. Pelicans are my favorite bird and when we used to vacation in Daytona we spent hours watching them flying formations and in long lines, surfing the winds along the tall buildings. i love to watch them dive and fish... gorgeous beach scene the artist did. very talented...

  10. Thanks for sharing your beautiful shots from FL. I'll be headed that way later in the month. Since it's below freezing here this morning, that keeps my hopes up! I think pelicans are marvels to watch flying, or fishing for that matter. Thanks for visiting my blogs and commenting. Hope your week is fabulous!

  13. Hi Eileen
    Happy April!
    The sea looked rough that day, but it must have felt cooling. I always like how brown pelicans fly so close to the water.
    Have a good week!
