summer flashback

September 20, 2012

Summer 2012 has been fabulous and I’m just not quite ready to let go.  In the spirit of squeezing out every last drop of summertime glory … a few photographic moments in time.

Snorkeling in the shallow Caribbean waters of Eleuthera in June….

From 2012


Fishing along the seashore in Freeport, TX with our niece and her husband in July.  As we were chillaxin’ on the shore, along came these two ice cream vendors with their crazy hats.  I just could not pass up the photo op 🙂


Pet-sitting in August for a pair of year old tortoises.  We imagined all sorts of hilarious adventure situations for the tortoises, and even staged a photo for one little guy – lounging in the pool.  He loved it!


It’s been the best summer ever 🙂

    Diane girl, these photos are faaaaaaaaaaabulous!

    Love the one of the hand holding the starfish! Did you take that above the water, or did you use an underwater camera? It’s AWESOME!

    And the one of the turtle is soooooooooooooooooooo CUTE! You should enter that in a contest!

    Also adore the one of you and the ice cream vendors! You are such a pretty lady!

    Yes, wasn’t this summer a wonderful one? But I have to tell you, we’re experiencing some of the most gorgeous weather STILL. It actually still feels like summer here, except not as humid. And all the flowers are still in bloom!

    Btw, I stopped over at your Picasa page and checked out the other photos. REALLY nice! You and Cristybella make such a lovely couple!

    Much X to you and both!

      we used a Panasonic Lumix for the water photographs. I’m not very satisfied with the way it captures color, but since I didn’t read the directions I really can’t blame the camera. Thank you so much for your very kind feedback on the photo album. We’re going back to the Bahamas in a couple of weeks and I’m thinking about taking the Nikon for land photos. Or, I could just bite the bullet and read the Lumix manual!

    We’ve had a pretty wet summer in England so I’m welcoming this lovely warm autumn with open arms!!

    Oh wow….you HAVE had an awesome summer.

    Mr. Tortoise musta been very very happy. I hope the other got a turn at it, too! Adorable!

    I have a sister who STOLE a Halloween spider from the house a couple years back. I get photos of his adventures now and again–and I’m happy that HE’S happy! 🙂

      that’s hilarious Mel! I hope that you have a few cute replacement spiders. They’ll be having a pretty good time themselves sneaking the extra M&Ms from the candy bowl. It’s always good to have a scapegoat for the disappearing candy.
