Spring Sunning

The countdown to my vacation has begun.  The longer days, warm sunshine, sights and sounds are drawing me to search out new shots.  Picture shots that bring out the best if the seasons.  I took this picture at Brkkogreen Gardens on my walk through an awesome plantation near Myrtle Beach.  I am planning on going back during summer months to soak up some sun just like these turtles in my pic.  For years I have taken working vacations but this year is just for me.  

  • I have had a year like no other full of stress an plan on researching where I would like to retire…..where I can hear the ocean, sun and breezes everyday. Ahhhhh
  • Have you a place i should check out.  Write about it.

Spring brings out the new smells and chases away the musty grey of winter.  Having a few springs behind me, I must say this spring is different for me.  It was my Mother’s favorite time of year and without her infectious laughter and awe for spring, I seem to have lost my zeal.  I still see the tulips deep dark vivid colors but they fail to heighten my spirits.  I guess I must slow down and rest my thoughts.  The problem is her memory comes back and my mind seems to wander to better times.

Enjoying a loved one through the seasons of their lives is a journey I have done many times.  Each one has a special meaning.  As I look back I see the love that has filled my memories, heart and soul.  Even if I don’t see another spring, I will have awesome memories of a life well lived through those who I loved and those who loved me enough to help me see…….each day is as precious as a spring day.  wp-1459597750749.jpeg
