I need to change that! I’ll start slowly again with the August Break from Susannah Conway.
It’s really a break from blogging and it’s all about the photos. Which is really were I like to play anyway. Here are suggested photo prompts for following or not. Anything goes. Susannah Conway also has a flickr group and a FB group for posting and meeting others. More information on her website linked above.
Today’s prompt is “smooth”… let’s see what I can come up with to photograph.
This weekend was our annual trip to West Palm Beach, Florida… specifically Singer Island, to submerge ourselves in music, dancing and laughter with friends. It was the Dave Matthew’s Band Summer Tour concert. Another DMB weekend in the books! It did not disappoint even with the rain clouds, really it wouldn’t be a DMB concert without the rain. This year Mr. Road King and I left our covered pavilion seats and trekked out to the muddy pastural hill to hang with friends. The energy out on that muddy hill was infectious. We were dancing, singing, laughing and absorbing the music and amazing energy. Thank you Dave Matthew’s Band for bringing us together, building a community and gracing us with your incredible talent.
We had a surprisingly early start this morning to head back to Orlando. After a stop an Alchemist Gastropub and Bar, which is quickly becoming my new favorite.Their food is SUPERB! We left West Palm Beach heading home. On the way, we decided to take a detour and check out a Wildlife Refuge in Vero Beach. Pelican Island is America’s oldest National Wildlife Refuge established in 1903. We enjoyed a walk to the Pelican NWR observation area and took pictures along the way. We knew in the heat of the day there wouldn’t be too many animal sightings if any, but there is always something to photograph. The island itself is small and requires a boat to get there. Pick up a camera, go exploring you may be surprised at everything you see. Below are a few of my favorites from the wildlife refuge.

November 2014, first time traveling to Europe, first time in Paris. Merveilleux! étonnante!
Warning… heavy use of photos ahead. I snapped so many photos, trying to organize them is daunting. I was nervous I’d miss a photo that I have duplicate folders like “Paris Again” and “Paris 2″ on my hard drive. This isn’t because I’ve been to Paris more than once, no… this is because I really wanted to make sure I saved every single photo. Crazy.
Today I decided I needed some bling, here’s a few photos of Versailles, France. I love looking back at my photos, planing for the next visit. “Paris is always a good idea.” – Audrey Hepburn
When you come upon a photo of me posing very strangely… this was my attempt of posing as Louis XIV. This pose was based on our tour guide coaching on what Louis XIV would pose like, showing off his calves as a sign of wealth. As I look back online at pictures of Louis XIV, I’m not seeing it. I look pretty silly, oh well. Who cares… I’m standing at the Grand Canal at Chateau De Versailles!
