East Bulter Park, St. Augustine Beach - "The Work of Your Fingers"

 When I consider Your
heavens, the work of
Your fingers,
The moon and the stars,
which You have
What is man that You are
mindful of him,
And the sone of man that
You visit him?
For You have made him a 
little lower than the
And You have crowned him
with glory and honor.

Psalm 8:3-5

St. Augustine Lighthouse "Christmas"


Over the weekend, we toured the St. Augustine Lighthouse with friends from Bad Axe, Michigan.  The lighthouse has a lovely Christmas Tree at the beginning of the stair case leading to the top.  Our lighthouse is ranked as one of the ten most beautiful lighthouses in the world.  That is impressive!

Seabirds - Vagabonds of the Sea

There were more birds on St. Augustine beach then people.  It was too windy and cold for even the tourist to come out and play.

To A Sea Bird (Santa Cruz 1869)

Sauntering hither on listless wings,
Careless vagabond of the sea,
Little thou heedest the surf that sings,
The bar that thunders, the shale that rings,-
Give me to keep thy company.

Little thou hast, old friend, that 's new;
Storms and wrecks are old things to thee;
Sick am I of these changes, too;
Little to care for, little to rue,-
I on the shore, and thou on the sea.

All of thy wanderings, far and near,
Bring thee at last to shore and me;
All of my journeyings end them here:
This our tether must be our cheer,-
I on the shore, and thou on the sea.

Lazily rocking on ocean's breast,
Something in common, old friend, have we:
Thou on the shingle seek'st thy nest,
I to the waters look for rest,-
I on the shore, and thou on the sea.

A Poet's Eye In the Lonely Sky

A Poet's Eye In the Lonely Sky

Sea Gull, 
soaring so high
no one inspires
wings of dreams

like you create 
painting the sky.

Clouds descend,
forming a haven
in the twilight;

the tips of your wings
catches the wind,

in poetic flight.

Searching for dreams,

in drifting tide;
Spreading your wings

in glimmering light;
A Poet's eye

In the lonely Sky.

Behind Salt Water Cowboy's

July 1, we ate breakfast at Wildflower Cafe and decided to take a quick trip across the street to Salt Water Cowboys.  This is the marsh behind the popular local restaurant.  This is the view you have as you are dinning.  Love Florida!

East Butler Park, St. Augustine Beach before July 4th

We decided to take a walk at Butler Park in the late afternoon.  This is the scenery before the big weekend of July 4th.  There are no crowds or vehicles row after row like it will be this coming weekend.  It was wonderful having the beach basically to ourselves with only a few local residents walking their dogs or taking a cool dip.  A really gorgeous beach!
