There are some things that after having photographed them time and time again I just don’t want to anymore; waterlilies are not one of them. I look forward to them appearing every year at this one industrial park and even though I have been told by security to move my car once or twice, it doesn’t deter me. Waterlilies make me want to sit and just be still with them – even though that never has happened as I am going back and forth with a camera – and remind me that one day I would love to see them in Giverny in Monet’s garden.
Maybe one day…
I think we’ve been spotted 😉
We had just left the peach orchard and were taking the long way around (which meant nothing but farms as far as we could see) to get to the highway that would take us home when DH suddenly stops and pulls over and says “LOOK!” Mind you, I was looking straight ahead at an interesting barn when this happened. He points to my right and I say “So it’s a couple of deer statues?” After a minute or two the statues began to move cautiously. I rolled the window down and leaned over a bit to get this shot.
Wonder where mom was?
Once past the hotel swimming pool and onto the beach, there was more to behold as the moon slowly said farewell to us and to the rising sun.
Sometimes you just have to stop and capture that moment in time for it will never exist again. Yes, I know that there will be other sunrises and moons etc. over this swimming pool but there will never be an exact moment like this again.
The sanctuary has an aviary that guests can walk through to view and interact with the song birds. The Blue Jays and Orioles will sometimes eat from a visitor’s hand, decide to inspect your bag or even land on your head…which is what happened to DH with a Blue Jay. Cheeky bird!
