Sunset in Gulf Shores

We are having a great time ... do we have to go home?? Maybe this IS our home. Oh well, maybe someday. These were taken from 5:45 to sunset. Once the sun came close to the horizon I couldn't take the pictures fast enough to show you the sunset. It goes down so very fast! And it was so very beautiful! These pictures really, really do not do this God-made creation a bit of justice. One picture is of a little girl - I would say about 3 - feeding the birds. If she had seen the movie (The Birds), she wouldn't have dared ... they completely surrounded her! She giggled and giggled and danced and pranced all over the beach. It was a real heart joy to watch her. There was a yellow flag that day with red ones flying 3 other days we were there. But the sunny days and beautiful waves couldn't have made this a more beautiful time to be here.

Gulf Shores is my all time vacation spot as well.
I also like Fort Morgan.
You have a nice blog!

Blogging Without Obligation

After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
