Bleached Reef

Bleached Coral

Here are more of my contributions to the Gainsville Coral Reef project.  These represent the bleaching that occurs when the reef is under stress from environmental changes.

WE didn't really miss the boat
We went to the Arts Market where we enjoyed food,

And saw a man wearing:
a bird

And a kilt.
His shirt said "And in case you're wondering . . .My Birthday suit,"

A bit of entertainment.

Monday Meanderings - on Tuesday again

Strange - but true.  About all I did this week was finally get our taxes done!
 So to "celebrate I had my nails done & hair cut!  
Another even brighter color, not sure what's possessed me.
 And I went to another art journaling session.  It's fun to just play and not worry about the result.

In case you wondered about the bird-like scribbles, I call them Rolo Birds.  They are based on a doodle I saw my father make so I adapted them for my use. - Sometimes they wear little baseball caps, maybe next time I'll draw a cap on them.

OK - so it's really Tuesday - but this week I'm starting a "Monday Meandering" series.  I'll try to feature someplace I have meandered during the past week.

For starters, after a pretty busy & not too productive week We wound up on Sunday evening at Port Canaveral.  There we enjoyed good food (at BAJA TAVERN AND EATS) and great weather.  We watched the big cruise ships go out and the graceful pelicans greet the fishing boats.

To buy a pair of zebra stripe sneakers.  And they have sequins!!

Then a cardigan in similar pattern!!  I think I've lost my mind!!
Or have a serious case of spring fever.

 And, my finger and toe nails are pink!  PINK!!  That's not me.  No pictures, yet.  But maybe I'll post one later.
