A Stroll Through Southport

"An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day."~Henry David Thoreau
On the last morning of our visit to Southport back in April, I got a chance to take some pictures of cottages that I haven't seen before, as well as a few pics of the marina.  This was the trip I took with my mom, sister, and niece; would you care to stroll with us?

The Land of the Noon Day Sun

Happy Monday to you!  Yesterday's post was compiled of random bits about what I've been doing this summer.  I started off by writing that we had just returned from a few days in western North Carolina at Nantahala Lake, in the Great Smoky Mountains.  I forgot to mention that I learned while we were there (thanks to my sister-in-law) that Nantahala is a Cherokee word meaning "Land of the Noon Day Sun."  This name fits the region, as some parts are so wooded that the sun's rays only reach them when the sun is high in the sky at mid-day.

Bits and Bobs

Hi everyone!  How was your weekend?  We just returned home yesterday from two and a half days in the mountains of North Carolina at Nantahala Lake.  It was so nice to have a little getaway.  I didn't take a single picture while we were there, just too much going on.

Happy Fourth of July 2019!

Happy Fourth of July to my readers and blog friends!  This will sound corny to many, but I love this country for so many reasons.  I hope you enjoy the pictorial tribute.

Friday Flowers

Happy Friday all!  I'm glad you stopped by!  Let me show you the flowers I got last Saturday at the Farmer's Market.  Here it is Friday, almost a week later, and they're still pretty (I took these pictures late yesterday afternoon).  I sometimes save those packets of flower food you get with supermarket flowers, and I used some in this bunch.  Wow, did it keep them fresh and perky!

Father's Day 2019

I realize that Father's Day was last Sunday, but I'm just now getting a chance to share this post.

Friday Flowers

Happy Friday everyone!  How nice that the first official day of summer and the summer solstice are on a Friday this year.  I thought I'd kick off the weekend with some flower pics from our Williamsburg trip in April.
