One 18 year old decided to go in and jump the waves the day after the storm had moved north. He lost his balance, was sucked under and washed up the next day 6 miles away. This verifies why I don't go in the ocean much unless it's a pretty calm surf. Very sad situation.
So what have I been doing during this quiet phase? Well, first let me show you a wonderful gift I received in the mail.

This lovely painting came from my dear friend Mynx at Lizard Happy all the way from across the globe in Australia. I am one of her biggest admirers of both her blog and her art work. I just love the colors in this painting and it now proudly sits displayed on my bookshelf next to another painting that came from her as well. I consider myself a very lucky lady to have her work in my home.
I think the reason why I have lizards crawling across my windows, up my door and all over the sidewalks is because they want to come in and get a closer look at the lizard painting she did for me....;-) Thank you so much Mynx. I treasure your artwork and your friendship more than you know.
Now as for what else I've been up to, Bruce and I have been continuing our exploration of Daytona Beach area. We found a beautiful lighthouse, a marina with yachts and some beautiful scenic streets. Here's a few pictures to share.

|I'm asking Santa to put this on the list. I've been nice.|
|However, this one will do if Santa so chooses.|
|But Santa, I've been really, really good. How about this one instead?!|

|Never get tired of the south's beautiful trees.|
Other than that folks...I will catch up with you all again soon. Hugs!
