Just because you don't understand it doesn't mean it isn't so.

A morning stroll through Aragon, a beautiful neighborhood in Pensacola.

And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost.

The Bay Bridge Fishing Pier is something I pass almost everyday. At least everyday I go to work. It runs parallel to the Three Mile Bridge that spans Pensacola Bay.

October 1960 the Three Mile Bridge replaced the old two lane bridge to the East. That two lane bridge became the Bay Bridge Fishing Pier. Much of it was destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004. The northern end was rebuilt as a fishing pier and opened this year, 2010.

Which leads me to my first images. The pier is home to several beautiful cats. I see them lounging on the sunny rocks at the base of the pier during winter. During the summer, they seek the shade of the pier.

On this day I started walking up the pier and looked down to see this lovely cat napping. I was able to get a couple of pictures, but the following image woke him up when he heard the click of my shutter, and he ran off.

Stringrays by the pier

Off in the distance I saw them. Playing and swimming with such graceful movements in and out of the waves. I grabbed my camera and headed to the water's edge. And I took these images.

One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.

A bit of summer on the beach. Lovely even with all the oil drama and mess. She shined so beautifully.

I have never heard a more eloquent silence

Although I do love photographing the beach, I have a special fondness for the harbor at Joe Patti's. There is a quiet stillness about it. It is forever changing...yet always the same. I can count on pelicans and seagulls. Docked boats. Weathered piers. And Miss Ann.

...the sixties...gave us a glimpse of the possibility

More from Bands on the Beach. Lovely night. Good company. Good music. Good times.

Trust me...I do this all the time

We go to Bands on the Beach on a Tuesday night when we can. There is always pretty decent music...and it is free. Plus you get the added bonus of the BEACH!!! So, how could it go wrong?

This night, Not Quite Fab was playing.

The world is quiet here

The Palafox Market is a sweet little Saturday morning getaway. While it is not as active as my beloved farmers market in St. Augustine, it seems to be gaining steam each week.
