Wingin' One (post) From The Road

We're outta town again - Delray Beach, for about a month this time. Nice place - plenty to do.
Here's Deb's view from our temporay "home".
                         

I get to see it too - typically a little earlier each day .....


                          

Got her camera goin' as usual......
                                             

                         

Think we're gonna build an aviary at home. Deb's a big butterfly fan ......

                        

.... and lover of strange flowers & plants - The ones that attract creatures like these......


                           
.... noisy lil' finches....

                        

..... tiny Hummingbirds.......


                        

.... and Lorikeets, like the one I'm holding above. Birds are my favorite - butterflies are still just bugs ...


                            


                       


                        

Okay... one more bird ..... an action photo of a thumb-sized Hummingbird....

                        

So Deb's photography stuff is thriving while my writing is .... not. Drove 520 miles round trip (in part) to get one of my desk chairs (but not my big screen computer - sniff...) trying to get comfortable. No luck. Guess Mickey Muse wasn't up for this trip. The way the writin's goin' - this blog may become a pictorial, with a new host, I mean hostess. Guess I'll go hang out ..... here (& wait for Mickey).

Great photography, but I'm with you on butterflies... they're just bugs in disguise. Any chance Mickey's hiding out among them trying to grab a vacation of his own? Give him a few days off but don't let him get too accustomed to a life of leisure. The longer he lays around the lazier he'll get. Buy him a rainbow-hued cape and entice him out of the garden and back to work!

dang -- the pics didn't upload. Could be too much traffic. I'll try again tomorrow. Have fun. Enjoy the life, you lucky guy!

I'm having problems viewing pics on other blogs too, so it's not just yours. Hope you're having a great time. ttys.

I could just keep looking at the pictures!!! But I miss your writing buddy!!!! Don't give it up----Deb is a fantastic photographer----I guess you already knew that!
Thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures!!! And the view---I feel sorry for the two of you that you have to stare at THE OCEAN EVERYDAY!!! HA HA------

Carol - Wish I was on vacation. Working on a very intense job in a nice locale. Planning to write this weekend. Tough adapting to strange surroundings (& writing). Staying in a nice place - but it ain't home.

Joylene - Hope you get that pic thing fixed. Looking forward to a break beginning tomorrow afternoon. Too many long days.

Katt - I'll be writing again very soon. Deb's got an eye for the photography stuff for sure. She's so patient. The ocean has been crazy these last few days. Windy. I'm just way too busy these past coupla weeks. Gets that way for me in this racket from time to time.
