Jekyll Island Dunes

Jekyll Island is home to another beach we really like.  It's hardly ever crowded and its got nice, soft white sand.

Black and White Sunday

A couple photos from today that I like (I'm probably the only one).  The trees are at the north end of the lagoon on Hunting Island and the lagoon is directly behind the dunes where I made the photo of the fence.  It was very overcast this afternoon, so that light lent itself to making the photos black and white.

Hunting Island, SC

Saturday afternoon at the beach.

West Virginia Power Sunset

A beautiful sunset over Appalachian Power Park.  The Power beat the Kannapolis Intimidators with a score of 5 to 1 in the second game of a double header this evening.  The Power got all their runs with two at bats.  Bases were loaded and the Kannapolis pitcher walked one in, then the next batter hit a grand slam.

Weekend Photos

The picture at the cemetery is from Friday evening.  We were headed to Appalachian Power Park to watch the Power play the Savannah Sand Gnats when a giant thunderstorm caused the game to be cancelled, so we went up to the cemetery and walked around in the rain for a while.

The other photo is the Gauley river just below the Summersville Dam.  We had been up there Saturday for another family reunion and we always like to go down by the river and mess around before we go home.

Sunday Pictures

My mom had the idea to make the top picture.  From left to right the ages are 90, 80, 70 and 50.  I'm not officially 50 yet, but I guess it's close enough, around a month-and-a-half.  It's my mom's neighbor, my step dad, my mom and me.  Her other neighbor was gonna be the 60, but she was busy this afternoon.  Maybe we'll get her in another one.

The bottom one was on our way home from church this evening.

Getting Closer

They've got some curved steel pieces headed toward each other from both sides of the river.  It looks like to me (I could be wrong), that once they get the remaining pieces put up on the Nitro side, they'll only have five more pieces to go in the middle and the new bridge will be connected.  Woo hoo!!!

Free Tickets...

Happy 4th of July!

I've taken a bunch of pictures of this house.  I think it's the prettiest one in Beaufort.
