As soon as I saw the prompts for this week's hunt I knew what I wanted to use for the first one.
#1. RELAXING - One of my neighbors believes in relaxing outdoors. He has a new take on outdoor furniture. Love those giant lamps!
#2. INSPIRING PERSON - OK, this is where I was stuck. It was late Saturday afternoon, I was home alone and not a person in sight to inspire me for anything. Sitting on the back porch, looking out on the marsh, there was the answer. I live on the edge of the Rachel Carson Nature Preserve.
Rachel first won fame with her prize winning studies of the ocean and went on to become a leader in the environment and ecology.
#3. WRITTEN WORD - A blank piece of paper (or blog page) is sometimes intimidating. The first word is always the hardest - just as in art, when facing a blank canvas. It is said once you throw some paint on the canvas the rest is easy. Not so easy in writing. You just can't throw words on a page.
#4. MEMORIES - Once my mother got this movie camera back in the late 50's she recorded everything. My grammar school years, high school, college prom are in this pile of film. Unfortunately I can't view them since we no longer have an 8mm projector. I bought one at the flea market but it set the film on fire. I tried a second purchase but no luck.
#5. BEST FRIEND - We had 16 years together and he will always be remembered - especially the time he broke loose, ran away and spent 4 days at a piggery. What a smell.
We're looking forward to a week of real summer weather here. There have been 2 days with no rain and the sun is out. It's time to get out and enjoy it but first stop by and visit Ashley at
