Bahia Honda State Park, Mile Marker 37 in the Florida Keys. This is what reamins of Henry Flager's Railroad to Key West. The project began in 1905 and was completed in 1912, but later destroyed by a hurricane in 1935. The railroad remains were converted into what is known today as U.S. Highway 1. I took photos with both cameras today — the digial and film cameras — lugging them both around all day, one around my neck and the other on my shoulder. I wanted so to set down someplace and sketch, but it was too cold and windy. The high was only about 60 yesterday. I am going to begin sketching more regularly — get over the fear of not doing it perfectly, and go for it.
16 Things is something many other bloggers are doing these days — I read that today on Ali's blog. (Check out the photo of Ali, 9 months pregnant — due on Valentine's day). Basically it's 16 things about your life right now.
1. I love taking photos, love to travel and love to write. I need to find a way to combine all three so I can make a living doing what I love.
2. I loathe winter. That's all I have to say about that.
3. I have 35 pounds to lose to complete my weight loss journey. Motivation is my only problem ;-) Weight issues have haunted me since adolesence.
4. I have really long fingernails right now which make it difficult to type without lots of typos. (Mrs. Roland, my high shool tying teacher, would make me cut my nails.) I keep them painted all the time and they look really pretty.
5. Being on the water is very soothing to me. I'm convinced I was a mermaid in another life.
6. I love animals and get way too emotional about them. (I get way too emotional about everything). I have one dog and three cats.
7. I love watching the Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten).
8. I wash my hair with baby shampoo.
9. I work at the Paper Source part-time and really like my job (most of the time.)
10. Cooking is another passion of mine.
11. Music is something I couldn't live without.
12. I love nature and exploring the great outdoors.
13. I wear socks to bed (I hate having cold feet).
14. I have to give my dog, Zachary, an allergy shot once per week.
15. I eat a salad every day.
16. I have a difficult time considering myself an artist.
