Sunrise, Sunset

Reminds me of a song....

Here at Twin Lakes Camp Resort we're on a peninsula, sort of, at the end of Holley King Rd.  So named because the sun rises on 

Holley Lake 
and sets on 

King Lake

There's a small dam between the two, which I keep meaning to ask about, where water from Holley Lake is diverted into King Lake.

It burbles up and is mesmerizing to watch.

I think I mentioned before that we've not seen a lot of water birds. Not sure why as the lakes have fish in the clear waters so I'm sure herons and egrets could find something to eat.  There are lot's of turtles!  And I'm always looking for gators.  It is Florida and gators are everywhere

We've had a lot of rain and as far as I remember summertime has it's showers most every afternoon.  Believe it or not it helps lower the temperatures.  But then you have the humidity!

We had a good time in Tallahassee with Sonsearae and Chris.  Of course they both worked during the week and we didn't intrude to often.  We enjoy spending time with them and I think they like us!  We shared several meals, some in their beautiful new home and some at the local restaurants.  We went to the movies!

Also while in Tallahassee we attended a 50th birthday bash for Jim's daughter Christy.  It was held at her feed store and her place of residence, Country Feed Store and Garden Supply.  What fun!  Of course there were a lot of people, a lot of food and from what I saw everyone had a good time.  We also got to see Jim's son William, his grandchildren Callie and Jack, and a great grandson!  Callie lives south of here in Destin and I expect we'll see more of here and that sweet baby.

We've been here since last Thursday and plan to stay two months.  Then we'll head west to our wintering spot in Spring Branch Texas

Travel days wear us out!  Breaking camp an setting up is no longer fun, just something to get through.  We've mostly settled in.  Jim has most of the kayak ready to hit the water.  But the trikes are pretty much stored under the slide.  Gravel here isn't good for the tires.

Yesterday we headed to Crestview to get my coffee cream.  I can only find it in Publix.  Here in De Funiak we have Walmart and Winn Dixie so groceries aren't a problem.  Though I haven't been inside, we also have a Piggly Wiggly express store..

Jim is up from his nap and the thunder is getting closer.  Some rain has started to fall.

All is right in our world

Recent Cards

Lest you think I've not been playing with my paper and ink I thought I'd send an update

Stampin' Up supplies used for both of these cards

Fun Stampers Journey is a new company for me, I bought one of their Bloom Boxes kit and was surprised and pleased by how easy these cards came together.  I've also got some ideas for more cards!  Always a good thing

I woke up this morning with a design on my mind.  Most days I work on my cards and it can take me several days to finish them because I don't leave my supplies out.  Each time I have some time I take everything out, work some then put it all away
