Eyes Wide Open – Week #20

Good Saturday morning!

This was a strange week having a holiday in the middle, and double duty in the kitchen, but I did get out managing to take a few iPhone photos to share.  Enjoy your Saturday!

I guess some people do.  That’s very sad

I see this guy quite often but he’s always too busy to wave back!

Now this fisherman was happy to connect.  Not so sure about the Ancient Mariner. Or maybe it was Captain Birds Eye!

This lone Plumeria bloom is hanging on until the last leaf has fallen

This is one of my favorite places to sit, write, read or just watch 💕

Pretty pink Bougainvillea blooming year round for our enjoyment

Eyes Wide Open – Week #19

 

Good morning!

We had a much cooler week with temps in the low 80s and yesterday we had a cold snap and it dropped below 70! Brrrr!  I checked out the beach and was happy to see the Red Tide had finally gone and there were no more sad remnants of sea life scattered on the shore.  It certainly hurt tourism this summer when most Europeans like to visit. Thankfully everything is pristine again and ready for this coming winter season and the return of the northern snowbirds.

Enjoy your Saturday!

A couple of sailboats heading out from the bay

Siesta Key Beach and it’s pretty white quartz sand

The Gulf looking chilly (to me anyway!)

I don’t know what you call these things but they always make me smile!

We have an English Tea Shop here and they have a cutout of the Queen

welcoming everyone.  I love it!

Eyes Wide Open – Week #14

 

Good morning!

Here is another photo diary of my week. All photos taken on my iPhone. Maybe some of the photos will inspire your writing.

Have a great Saturday!

 

I ran into my new neighborhood friend George again!  He’s so cool

Pink Flamingos … it is Florida after all

Some mosaics on someone’s fence

This little Gecko jumped on the hood of my car when I left the

grocery store.  I drove slowly and he was still there when I got home.

He’s probably lost now!

Free Avocados!

Funny sight outside gun store. Do you think the angel is telling the child

not to buy one? The angel statue belongs to an antique store next door

Eyes Wide Open – Week 13

Thank goodness the temperature dropped below the 90 degree mark this week, which made running more of a pleasure than a chore!  I managed to catch a few interesting things on my iPhone and hope you enjoy them. They inspired me and perhaps they will do the same for you.

Have a great Saturday!

This sculpture is outside the Museum of Whimsy.  Great fun inside!

Some Ibis joined me at a favorite resting spot by the water

This butterfly was quite happy sitting on this horse statue

Bananas will soon be ripe for the picking!

Pretty day at the marina

Free Key Limes!  Yeah!

Eyes Wide Open – Week 12

Eyes Wide Open

I had some interesting finds for this week’s Eyes Wide Open.  I hope you enjoy these photos taken with my iPhone.

Have a great Saturday!

 

A beautiful gate to an equally beautiful property

Pretty Dog Sculpture

Another gate, but to where?

A lovely place to run.  I am very lucky!

I found this thoughtful sign on the nature trail in a local park.

There is even a delightful poem about a tree!

Just one of this week’s wild and beautiful sunsets

Eyes Wide Open – Week 9

Good Morning!  Lately I have been obsessed with people’s quirky mail boxes and lawn decor.  Some are really quite entertaining!  As usual all photos are taken with an iPhone.

Enjoy your Saturday!
