Simply Sunday: St Patrick’s Cathedral

Awe Inspiring

St-Patrick's-Cathedral

 This is St Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. Awe inspiring does not convey the beauty and majesty of this cathedral.

Because this post is Simply Sunday, I will be simply sharing my photos of this magnificent cathedral with you today.

While visiting the cathedral, my experience was one of reverence and peace. Silence in a crowd and the lighting of candles for loved ones touch my heart.

 I felt joy and gratitude.

That is my intention and that is my wish  for you on this Simply Sunday.

Spring Break in Margaritaville

Spring Break Southern Style in Margaritaville

It’s time to start thinking spring break!

I’ve recently visited Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville Beach Resort in Hollywood Beach, Florida. Since I am officially a parrot head from way back in the day, I jumped at the opportunity to have dinner at JWB Steak & Seafood restaurant. It gave me the chance to see the resort and all it’s amenities.

I was blown away by the casual elegance of the front lobby. Swings were delightful and relaxing spot for socializing before dinner.  Our dinners did not disappoint. Steaks and seafood were perfect dinner fare. The “Cheeseburgers in paradise” can wait for lunch.

Since mine was a dinner trip, my views and photos were taken after dark. The Resort is situated on the boardwalk with loads of sun and sand when visiting during the day.

I would like to close with a little flashback memory.

It was such a  fun time being part of Jimmy Buffet’s “Fruitcakes” video.

Oh, were we young.

First Annual Alachua Car Show

A Perfect Morning For A Car Show

On Saturday the City of Alachua held it’s first Annual Car Show.

Car show

 

This is the first year for the City of Alachua to host a fall car show.

 Last Saturday was one of those magnificent fall mornings.  It was sunny and bright with a slight nip of fall in the air.

We decided it was a good day to take the boys on a little excursion.  Jake and Rex love to go to festivals and car shows.  They especially love all the attention they get from the passers by.
