Join a Circus

We all dream of joining the circus at some point in our lives. When I watch them perform I am so entranced. It is truly a spectacular way to spend a few hours and dream of how it would be to be able to do what these talented performers do. This group of performers are from Florida State University Flying High Circus, and are delightful to watch. I can imagine the sacrifice and time needed to be able to become accomplished wonderful performers such as these.

Okay, so I didn't run away with the circus, but it doesn't mean I didn't think about it. I am still thinking about running away with the circus one day. It's on my list of things to do, but for now I have enjoyed a time at the circus and have been awed.

If you want too want to join the circus, you can reach The FSU Flying Circus at this link:

Stroll Callaway Gardens

A visit to Callaway Gardens in Georgia will leave you as breathless with wonder as it did me. The flowers, nature, lakes and forests are spectacular. It really is a wonderful place to enjoy nature in all its wonder, throughout the year, but especially in the summer. Spending a day may not even be enough, but it sure will allow you to enjoy much of the natural gardens and enjoy the views. Wading through the shallows in  the lake will let you cool off your feet too.... unless you slip and fall in... in that case be sure your camera and phone are safely on the shore because you will get more than just your feet wet. 

No, I didn't add the picture of me dripping lake water...... instead this is the bottom of the lake. It is lovely to dry off sitting in the sunshine by the grassy shore. Here is a link to the hours and directions if you are interested in visiting this beautiful place.

Capture Butterflies

I have never captured butterflies, and instead of a net, I used my camera to do so and that way they remain free to fly. I enjoyed taking photos of these beautiful creatures and hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
