I Found This – The First Planetarium at Sea

I Found This

I Found This

As we flew into Boston Logan Airport, I spotted the Queen Mary 2 (QM2) at port. Designed by a team of British naval architects in 2003, she is the largest ocean liner ever built to date.

Annually every January, she departs on an 89 to 132 night world voyage. A bucket list for sure. (Why does my bucket list seem to be getting longer instead of shorter. I swear, I’m working on it!!)

Some of Queen Mary 2‘s facilities include fifteen restaurants and bars, five swimming pools, a casino, a ballroom, a theatre, and the first full-scale planetarium at sea where one can view the stars in galaxies far far away. Out of this world isn’t it? 😉

A Fairy Tale

This is the first year that I’ve completed the actual 52-week photography blog!!! So ok, there is nothing wrong with wanting a fairy tale ending! I’ve included my original drawing below that I took a photograph of before I brought it into Photoshop to take it from a black and white fairy tale to a colorful fairy tale.
A Fairy Tale

A Fairy Tale

Song: Kiss the Girl
Movie: The Little Mermaid
Lyrics:
Percussion
Strings
Winds
Words
There you see her
Sitting there across the way
She don’t got a lot to say
But there’s something about her
And you don’t know why
But you’re dying to try
You wanna kiss the girl
Yes, you want her
Look at her, you know you do
It’s possible she wants you, too
There is one way to ask her
It don’t take a word
Not a single word
Go on and kiss the girl
Sing with me now
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
My, oh, my
Look at the boy too shy
He ain’t gonna kiss the girl
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Ain’t that sad
Ain’t it shame, too bad
You gonna miss the girl
Now’s your moment
Floating in a blue lagoon
Boy, you better do it soon
No time will be better
She don’t say a word
And she won’t say a word
Until you kiss the girl
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Don’t be scared
You got the mood prepared
Go on and kiss the girl
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Don’t stop now
Don’t try to hide it how
You wanna kiss the girl
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Float along
Listen to the song
The song say kiss the girl
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Music play
Do what the music say
You wanna kiss the girl
You’ve got to kiss the girl
Why don’t you kiss the girl
You gotta kiss the girl
Go on and kiss the girl

The Good Old Days

If you enjoy the country, a slower pace and way of life, getting a little dirty and wearing a big smile on your face, you’d enjoy Clewiston.

Close to Lake Okeechobee, Clewiston is known as Florida’s “sweetest town” due to the plethora of sugarcane fields! Clewiston is a city in Hendry County, Florida with a mere population of approximately 7,175 give or take a few.

If you do visit, you truly go back in time especially when you stay at the historic Clewiston Inn. It was built in 1938 by the United States Sugar Company to host company executives and visiting dignitaries. Pretty cool eh? The inn is registered as a National Historic Site which I didn’t realize when I stayed there for one quick evening. Sweet Clewiston takes me so far back to my childhood days spent with my grandparents on their 88 acres of land in Filmore, NY. The sights, the sounds, the smells. Absolutely everything, including the music playing on the radio with the windows down as you cruise through the country roads without a care in the world and the wind in your hair. Even when I’m just passing through, I get sucked in and stop along the country ways to photograph God’s great Earth and fondly think of my grandparents. I thank you Mr. Clewiston.

A regular ride for humans but a speedy one for doggies! She’s at such peace with it all and is just taking it all in.

I especially like this particular angle that I shot showing the white line with the white car and the white lights from the vehicle way behind us. They must be texting though; they’re mainly on the inside of the bike path!!
