My World, 11th Blog Anniversary

Hello,

Happy Monday!  It is my 11th blog anniversary, these years have flown by.  I have many great memories looking back at my older blog post. My post shared years of birding, enjoying all things nature and traveling.  All the things I love and I hope you love too.  During the first part of 2020, we were limited on what we could do and where we could go due to the Covid virus. I am not sure if or when things will ever return to normal.  Covid is not something I like to blog about, I just wish for happier times and good health for all. 

 So images randomly picked from my past 11 years of blogging.  I hope you enjoy and I thank all my blog visitors for all the past and future comments.  

I have my eye on you!  Wood Duck , Nov 2009..Original post Wood Duck_November 2009



  I started making the mosaic images and participating with Mary and her blog called Little Red House. Mary was the host of Mosaic Monday back in 2009.  Now Angie of the blog Letting Go of the Bay Leaf is the host of Mosaic Monday. Maybe you can join in with the mosaic making party.

 Various Toucans, seen in the wild during our Costa Rica trip in March 2010. Original post Costa Rica trip_Toucans





At this time in 2011, I was joining in with the linking party called Our World Tuesday. Thanks to these lovely host Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia, Sandy and Jennifer.  Lady Fi is the host of Our World Tuesday. Some bloggers are gone but not forgotten. 


 Some of my favorite birds seen in 2011, original post Favorite-birds-of-2011.  I must add all birds are favorites, especially at the time of seeing them..




 Goldie Girl will always be remembered on my blog. This Goldie photo was taken in Dec 2012.  My original post Dec 30th 2012



 A Snowy Owl seen on the Delaware Shore in Dec 2013.. My original post Delaware Snowy owl



 A Violet Sabrewing seen while birding in Belize in May 2014, my original post Belize birds and critters




 In 2015, I blogged about our Washington state trip and a visit to the Dungeness Spit. This spot is my favorite near Sequim Washington, hubby and I almost moved there. We had a realtor show us a few homes.  One home was perfect,  we are kicking ourselves for not buying.   My original post was a year end for 2015 Year end 2015





Starting in Oct 2016, I started blogging from our place in Lakeland Florida, we were just a walk away from a lake and this Tricolored Heron.  My original blog post is here  Lakeland-Florida



 I started my Skywatch blog post back in 2009 with the Skywatch hosting team of Sandy, Wren, Sylvia, Louise, Fishing Guy and Klaus. A few of these bloggers Louise and Klaus have passed away, they are missed.  The others are MIA, I believe Tom, the Fishing Guy has stopped blogging. Now Alan of the blog Yogi's Den is the Skywatch Host at  http://yogisden.us/     
Join me and others from around the world watching the sky.

 In Dec 2017, I blogged about my favorite things/sights we saw during 2017.. The original post is here Thankful 2017 list



 In March 2018, one of my favorite places to blog about Assateague Island National Seashore and the ponies.  My original post Assateague, Md




Dec 2019, hubby and I went to Hilton Head SC. My original post is here Hilton Head SC





I am looking forward to another year of blogging and visiting your blogs.  Thanks so much for visiting.   I really appreciate your comments now and over the past 11 years. 


We are staying safe, wearing our mask and keeping the social distance.   I hope everyone is safe, happy and healthy. Take care and stay well.

  51. HI Eileen Well I am glad someone else can do this and I know how you feel when you realise what you have done! No one is perfect so CONGRATULATION ON YOUR 11TH ANNIVERSARY. Quite an achievement. There are not many now still blogging that can say that. The images you picked are brilliant and I loved seeing Goldie again. it is funny but when I see a retriever at home, I do remember Goldie and my dog. Love the shot of the sea framed by the wood. Stay safe and have a good week.

  65. what a wonderful post. And Congrats to the 11 years. I must have been around then as well as it was your bird-shots from Costa Rica that made ME go there in 2011. So, I loved t to see your Tucans. I did see them too. It has been a pleasure to follow you around all those years :)

    Sorry about the comments. Is it possible to write to Blogger about it? They must have backups? It must be a Helpdesk somewhere.
    Take care and good luck. Hope we will still have some years online.

  68. Eileen - congratulations on your 11th anniversary of blogging - what an accomplishment! I have only been doing it for three years and already I would have a hard time selecting just a few photos or mosaics. You did a fine job - I think my favorites are the heron and the sunset. Thanks for the shout out to Mosaic Monday - your ongoing support is truly appreciated!
