Why I live Here


Thought I’d sneak in a quick whimsy post.

I like to occasionally visit a hidden-away strip of pure white sugar sand beach on the Intercoastal near where I live.

Yesterday, I was coming back from such a visit, and ran into a lady wearing a badge and carrying a small plastic bucket full of water.  It had tiny things swimming in it.  At first, I couldn’t tell what they were.  But then, I saw that each one was a perfect miniature sea-horse.  They were, in fact, baby Atlantic Lined Seahorses.

Of course they made me think immediately of two canvases I have in my stash.

The nice lady was actually a volunteer here.

Inside this place, you’ll find, among other things, an aquarium with seahorses swimming in it.

To see where the nice volunteer lady was going to release her little baby seahorses, go this way. 

Down these steps.

Past the gumbo limbo tree.

Read the tree sign, while descending.

Almost there…



Now you know why I live here.  Okay, back to Needlepoint Land… .
