We just returned from a much needed family vacation in Destin, Florida. Despite what you may be seeing on the news about tar balls and such---it was beautiful! The sand and water were perfectly clean and gorgeous! Unfortunately for the folks in the gulf area, tourism is way down. We practically had our section of the beach to ourselves! The sun was shining every day, the water was a clear, emerald green and just the right temperature~The condo we stayed in was on a protected cove and we had our choice of hanging out on either side of the jetty for either calm water for floating or big waves for "boogie boarding". I can never get my fill of those "royal red" shrimp they sell in the seafood shops there. If you like lobster, I think they have more of a lobster taste than a shrimp taste--with butter and lemon--oh my!!!!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
