Monday, Monday!

here it is Monday already...what a week almost!

Last Wednesday found me on the road with my traveling hat..
Spent Thursday nite with my friend Vickie..
the owner of  my favorite shop in Pensacola " Once upon a Time"..
arrived early afternoon for late lunch  and so enjoyed working with her in the shop..
At 5 pm, closing time.. followed her home to Gulf Breeze..
relaxed on the patio to this awesome view..

Friday morning zipped across town , all the way out to Perdido Key to meet up with my Redneck Riveria chapter of Wonderful Wacky Women.. our illustrious leader Suzy Toronto..
meeting at the Shops of Villagio to board the FloraBama bus..
Heading to Lucy Buffett's place..
Destination LuLu's at Homeport Marina.. 

The place was everything I'd ever heard..and more!

Food..deliciousness..check! ***** 5stars!
service!                                 ***** 5 stars again..
anything and everything..all positive..
nothing negative at all..
well only just a tiny exception.. Lucy wasn't in house..
sent her regrets..but..she was in PARIS FRANCE ,
touring with her brother....Jimmy..
who could be mad? not us!!

after a fun day there.. returned back to our vehicles..
on my way, I stopped by the Perdido Key Visitor's Center/Chamber of Commerce to see a sculpture of a jelly fish by my friend Lyn Gentry.. Hotsands Glass artworks... so talented!!
Had heard so much about this particular piece..seeing is believing!
see for yourself!

Clicked a few shots of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico..drug my toes through the sand..said prayers for Mah Sistahs.. tossed sparklies everywhere...
Back on the road again.. heading to my friend and former neighbor Becky's place ..right next door to where I USED to live.. 

Remember the sunsets and sunrises?
They are still just as awesome as always..
We all were tired after a delicious  grilled dinner and desserts.. crashed early.. slept like a baby!
Saturday morning.. up early, Becky had the coffee ready..
hugs, smiles and I was out the door and on the road by 7ish! 

Back to the FloraBama for the race/fun run/walk...
So many runners/walkers... and I was fortunate to be included in the group as a volunteer photographer!!!..

The participants were exhuberant and excited!
Suzy T and Jimmie Sue were ready to get the race started!

to be continued....

Outdoors Wednesday
Wordless Wednesday


  1. What a delightful adventure you had, Loui. I see that the group is helping the fight against ovarian cancer. I am a survivor of ovarian cancer.

    Please consider returning and leaving a comment for me.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  2. What fun and what beautiful water and sunset views, and I like each photo with your floral cowgirl traveling hat in it. That is a good cause.

  3. Your photos bring back happy memories of the sights, smells (fishy) and general atmosphere of the South/Florida beaches. Thanks for the trip. The jellyfish glass sculpture is really pretty, I like the iridescent green, and the beach sunsets and sky are fantastic.

  4. What an awesome event and it looks like you got off to a great start. I can't wait to hear more!!

  5. Hi Loui, What a great trip-seems like you had lots of fun besides supporting a great cause. You know how dear this is to my heart. Too many ladies die too early from it. Can't wait to see more!
    Hugs, Noreen

  6. love the hat. pretty blues in this post.

  7. These were great shots. Especially love the hat and the toes in the sand!

    Here's my Wordless Wednesday!


welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
