The Westin in downtown Sarasota is a new way to take in the aerial views of our exploding downtown. Come for a weekend stay when its a full moon and enjoy dinner then drinks on the rooftop! http://www.westinsarasota.com/

This photograph was captured on my flight down to the Dominican Republic to celebrate my sister’s 30th birthday. I looked around and noticed that everyone was on their individual devices and they were missing this amazing view right outside their windows. Absolutely grateful that I had a window seat and that I could take in these extraordinary views!

Can anyone tell which islands are below?

It was a quiet evening leaving my sister’s house last Friday night. As I came to the end of her street I noticed something in the road. Yup, I was already familiar with this sighting and knew right away that it was an owl standing in the middle of the road. This happened to me a few years ago! I couldn’t believe it was happening again! He wasn’t afraid of me and I just sat in my car in silence and complete awe. Something moved that he was eyeing so he eventually took off but not too far so I followed him and parked my car. Exiting quietly, I approached the tree he decided to land in and I got a glimpse of part of his beautiful face. There were a few special moments that he looked down right at me and we made a sweet connection. I was not taking photographs at that point as you can imagine.

I’ve been sick a few days and ended up going to the beach to just sit and relax this past weekend. Wanted to do some lite reading, meditating and taking in some oh natural Vitamin D.

A group of ladies celebrating a 50th birthday arrived shortly after I set up my day camp and one brought her dog. All she wanted to do was play fetch in the water. After she tired of that she came over to me and laid down by my side. Dogs are incredible beings and they just know who needs what when. She was a stranger when she first arrived but a sweet blessing after I departed. Thank you for knowing I needed some extra love that day Ms. Cayenne.

State College of Florida Foundation, Inc. celebrated the 30th anniversary of Evening Under the Stars.

Evening Under the Stars takes place at the Venice campus of SCF and is an outdoor concert that features the SCF Big Band, The Venice Symphony and ends with an amazingly beautiful display of fireworks. It’s a really casual event and guests bring their lawn chairs and coolers. It never disappoints year after year though this year ended a bit shorter than most due to the rain that came in towards the end.

I like this photograph for capturing the colors it did among the palm fronds.
