Cee’s Share Your World – July 9,2018

This week Cee had some reflective questions in her Share Your World challenge. I kept the answer fairly short – didn’t want to ramble on…

What would you name the autobiography of your life? 

Lessons in Life I Wish I Had Learned Before I Made the Mistake

Which do you prefer sweet, salty or buttery? 

Sweet best but salty follows the sweet

What’s the finest education?

The one that challenges you and feeds your mind…

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? 

Watching the calves run and play with each other in the cool rain.

52 Tuesdays Challenge #22: Texture

Welcome to week 22 of the 52 Tuesdays Challenge! Each week I chose a word that begins with at T and share my photos, stories or even a quote. I ask that you join me in the Challenge and share your own photos, stories, quotes, whatever as well. Just link back to this blog post or add your own blog post link to the comments. Have fun!

This week’s T word is Texture!

I have a lot of photos of nature and in some I can almost feel the object’s texture. So I am sharing a few photos with YOU!


Every time I see this photo I remember the silky feel of the petals and the chill that the rain left on the rose. 



This little hermit crab was snuggled in on the beach in Middle Caicos. You can see the grains of sand on its beautifully colored shell. Reminds me of my toes in the sand as the water washes the sand around. 



This last one was taken in one of our favorite spots, Beavers Bend State Park. After major flooding destroyed much of the area along the river it uncovered beautiful layers of rock that were both slick and cold with the river water. 


The Road Taken

In my travels there have been many, many roads taken – probably more taken than passed over…well, maybe… Nevertheless, one that came to mind is the highway 1 on the coast of California. I took it from Jenner up to Fort Ross one foggy Saturday and just fell in love with it. I wrote a post of the experience and shared one aspect of the trip with y’all. But for the Weekly Photo Challenge The Road Taken I wanted to share a couple of new pics for a different perspective of the road taken that day – highway 1. Enjoy!
