Blue Angels flying over the Severn River in Annapolis. They perform every May during graduation week at the Naval Academy. It's a particularly bad traffic day for locals. All the parents are in town for graduation and several area bridges close for the afternoon. Nothing worse than half the roads and twice the cars! Many of us take the day off rather than fight the traffic. More SKY WATCH FRIDAY click on the sidebar.

This is the Barnegat Lighthouse in Long Beach NJ. If you enlarge it you'll see the seagulls fighting over the dead crab laying on the rocks. I love the way they just blend in to the rocks in the original post. More ABC WEDNESDAY click on the sidebar.

I thought this red fire hydrant right at the ocean front was a bit odd!

D is for DOOR

May Day is celebrated each May 1st in Annapolis. All area merchants, and homes in the historic area, hang May baskets and area garden clubs judge them and award ribbons. I love to take the day off work and enjoy the baskets and lunch with good friends. These are just a few of hundreds to see.

Orioles Park Camden Yards, Baltimore MD
A beautiful night at the ball park. Orioles lost to the Red Sox but it was still fun. The stand were full...with Red Sox fans! Originally from Massachusetts, it was a win win for us.

Sunset Beach NC a little bit of heaven! This gem is about 45 minutes north of Myrtle Beach. The island is attched to the mainland by a one lane draw bridge. Nothing but peace and quiet here but plenty of golfing and shopping close by.

C is for Capital ABC Wednesday

This is the our beautiful state capital in Annapolis, MD. It is the oldest continually used capital building in the U.S. Many are unaware that this was actually the U.S. capital from 1783~1784. Annapolis also has more original 18th century structures that any city in the U.S. Who knew!

Mellow Yellow Monday

The desert in April is a beautiful sight.
I never though of a cactus as particularly beautiful but they really are when blooming.

Mellow Yellow Monday

This is my friends mom totally chilling at the lake. She's so mellow she never realized I even took the shot.


This was a weekend get away to a place we'd never been before. Chicago was our pick and what a pleasant surprise it was. We had no idea it was this beautiful. We'll be back!
