Hodge-podge of images

Our last week consisted of geocaching, farmers market, dining in St. Augustine, going to the dock. But, I've been busy with work, and just now getting them posted. So, let's start with Saturday morning at the market.

OK...these are all mixed up. Here is another farmer's market pic. You may wonder why I don't just put it in the correct spot? I'm being a rebel.

A few days....

One evening I roamed St. Augustine while D did a community service at The Florida School for the Deaf & Blind. There was a little party for the kids and he helped. His buddy for the evening was a clever little boy named Chris. So, while he was helping with the party, I walked downtown and took some pictures.

The first is of a girl named Summer with wings. She was adorable!

Summer was colorful from head to toes. I loved her rainbow skirt and socks!

Does this not take your breath away? I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the moon. And the fact that I was so close to the water...well, a magic moment.

This was the next day. Or not. I can't remember the day. I do remember D was in school, and I chose to be let out downtown and walk south. Not good with directions, so don't take the south part to heart.

We all knew that the farmers market would show up! And here it is. Only a quick trip. And a new lens!
