    Found your muse? Been uplifted? Feeling arty? Just spotted a phallic tower block?

    These are the moments when a picture speaks a thousand words. And here's the place to share them.

    So grab your cameras and snap away.



    To start the ball rolling, here are a few pics from my morning constitutional today.

    Thank you for enjoying my pictures Mel....I really love yours too and can't wait to see more.

    and Thank you for the Happy Anniversary...I can't believe it's been a whole year already.

    We were very pleased to get so many Hummingbirds here...we didn't know if we would or not.

    When we first moved here I wanted a boat with a cuddie cabin then changed my mind to jet ski's but my hub has the Sea Eagle which is so much fun...so then I changed my mind to a double sided 2 person jet ski...then I saw this one and immediately went and bought it!

    Yes I have colored out my hub :)

    This guy was watching me with his binoculars while I was taking a picture of their boat...he was a good distance away so I couldn't see him...I thought this was funny!

    Mud Swallows are the coolest birds..next to hummingbirds of course...they make little holes in the sides of the bluff and that is their home.
