Reflection of a fat cherab

at Brookgreen Gardens. No walking for me today instead we were out shopping all day. Thank you Amy and Allison for helping me pick out new glasses and also a new phone (I was still stressed out with that phone and very nervous leaving ATT and going with Straight Talk instead) but both of them understood all about it and helped me get my phone going again. We had lunch at Croissant Bistro and Bakery where we go every year when I am here. Felt like I got a lot accomplished. Tomorrow we are off to Charleston for the whole day!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that this is mistletoe growing in these trees (wrong season, I know). I think that I remember reading that it is a parasite and grows on host trees.

Before the Rain

I took some great photos before the rain came down. Unknown to me, it was Easter egg hunt day at Brookgreen.....hundreds of kids everywhere. They were cute though, with their Easter outfits, bonnets, bunny ears and of course Easter Baskets. Can't wait to go back on a quiet day. 


Some of the Volunteers with their funny hats....love the man with his Easter Bonnet.

Rough Seas

 These fishermen would totally disappear from view.....up and down, up and down
 First time I have ever seen the red flag flying
 Note 3 brown pelican to the right of the boat
 Good Friday at the beach with a friend and a thermos of coffee...can't beat that!
I am so glad to be here!

City Views

When we were at the Masonic a lot of us were interested in shooting the city views from the windows, unfortunately the windows were hard to open and shooting through the dirty glass was not the best option either.
 Nice view of the Ambassador Bridge

Knights Templar Armour

 These knights seemed kind of short to me. And then there was the question of mobility and their range of vision. If they got knocked off their horse, they were done. All very primitive ;-)

It's Not My Fault!

I have been a lapsed Catholic since 1980 when the church annulled my marriage of 16 years, however I recently started going to church again. Last summer, I found St. Josephs in Detroit that had the Mass in Latin with all the old traditions. rituals and beautiful music. I have only gone a few times....Christmas Eve being the last time I attended.
My ex-husband always said that if I went into a church the roof would fall in. Well, guess what? The steeple at St. Joseph needs emergency repairs! It's not my fault! The church will be closed for about a month to stabilize the steeple and later a full restoration will be done.
So, today I decided to go to Mass for Palm Sunday at St. Josaphat not far from St. Josephs. There are 3 churches in this parish and St. Josaphats is taking the Latin Masses until St. Josephs re-opens.
St. Josaphat's has one very large steeple and 2 smaller on each side (this church is clearly seen from
I-75). I felt confident going there as the steeples were just restored last year so they should still stand. Thank you Jesus!

Bits and Pieces of the Masonic

 These was so much to take photos of at the Masonic....all old and beautiful things like the chandeliers, clocks and even water fountains. I particularly love the fire hose cupboard.
