That’s when I heard about WordPress. The people I spoke with said, “Bill pack up your website and head on over to WordPress! That’s where you need to be!” (Ok, so all the while I was typing that, I heard the theme song to the Beverly Hillbillies playing in my head!)
It was about that time when I decided that it was time to downsize and consolidate. I needed a setup that was lighter in weight and more portable, these things would make it easier to use and in the end, make it possible to shoot more pics and video.
The result, I switched to the iPad Pro, with a MelaMount and detachable lenses. Now, I can shoot photos or videos and have the convenience of having one device with internet access.
So, what do you do when it’s 19 degrees out? We go for a ride! (It is warmer in the car after all!)
We had a spare day or two before the wedding and so we decided to do a little exploring out of Ossining, NY and up the Connecticut coastline. Our first stop was in Bridgeport, where we found Seaside Park.
A brisk train ride into New York City Grand Central Station this morning! 37° the push for the sign was a welcomed site!
“While visiting The Ringling you are welcome to explore the Bayfront Gardens at your leisure. As awe-inspiring as any work of art, The Ringling Bayfront Gardens are a living treasure. Courting couples statuary watch over Mable’s Rose Garden. The shade the majestic Banyan trees provide. The delight inspired by the whimsy of the Dwarf Garden. The echoes from the past where the Circus King finally rests in the Secret Garden.”
Denise and I took a day trip to this years Tampabay Area Renaissance Festival at MOSI this past weekend. And, do you know who we saw there? Dr. Who? of course!
I am the only one who thinks that it was kind of ironic that I was leaning up against a “time machine” with Dr. Who, while I was wearing an “I can freeze time” t-shirt?
The circus was self-sustaining. There was no outsourcing in those days. If they needed something, they didn’t buy it, they made it! If there was an obstacle, they would overcome it. Life in the circus was hard, but you never saw it from the outside, you only saw the smiles of the clowns and felt the magic in the air. (I would suppose that if you close your eyes, you can almost hear the circus music and feel the excitement of the circus you experienced as a child, even today.)
Half Moon Cay is Carnival’s, private 2,400-acre island, that serves as a private retreat for passengers on the line’s Caribbean and Panama Canal sailings.
Pack the essentials in your carry on. Your luggage may not be delivered to your room for a while. A swimsuit, sunscreen, and a change of clothes are good examples, not to mention any medications you may need. Denise has a travel checklist that comes in handy. You don’t want to be buying items on board that you could have brought from home!
Cozumel is the only city in the world where the first thing I did when exiting the cab was to kiss the ground and thank the good Lord for a safe arrival, despite the best intention of the cab driver! To be “fare” though, pun intended, they get paid by how many trips they make from the port to Puerta Maya. Which translates, to passing on the left, passing on the right, running red lights, and almost running over the poor tourist who thought it wise to walk!
So what do you do to cool off on a hot Florida day? Some stay home in the AC, others go to the beach, but we go to the river and get our Kayak on! Our destination, Nobleton Outpost, on the Withlacoochee River.
