Saturday Photo hunt - "unknown"

 I don't know why I just had to take a photo of this gate as I was sitting in a parking lot of the thrift shop. I think this would fit in the theme of this weeks Saturday Photo Hunt - Unknown.

It is unknown what is behind this door...a secret garden?

Be sure to check out more of the UNKNOWN here on Saturday Photo Hunt on Facebook.

Saturday Photo Hunt ~Zoom~

This is Mika's first visit to the dog beach. She loved it and she loves water. Here I tried to get a good running shot as she zoomed down the beach....but she zoomed too fast!

Tucker out late Australian Shepherd would run in our side yard (which is 2 1/2 empty lots) and this little boy walking with his mother said "look mom it's the zoomy dog" so that's what gave me the idea to get a shot of our new dog for the "zoom" photo!

SkyWatch Friday - Sunset on Sarasota Bay

It's been awhile since I have posted to SkyWatch Friday, not that I haven't had any sky photos to post, I just thought you'd like to see something other than sunset photos....and even though this is another sunset pic it is not over the Gulf of Mexico is is taken at my aunt and uncles in Bradenton, Florida looking over Sarasota Bay at Longboat Key, Florida.
Taken at Christmas the sky was amazing....
...and the sky was always changing...the colors were stunning. calm and was hard to look away!

If you want to see more skies from around the globe check out SkyWatch Friday.

A Dog and Her Bone -

Mika loves to chew on her bones. She is still a puppy and discovers all kinds of new things. Her favorite bone she it fits nicely over her chin and rests behind her canine teeth. When she looks straight at you it almost looks like she has a goatee...she can get it off herself, but it looks like it's husband put the bone up away from her because he though it was stuck on, but she can get it off herself. ..even now that she is bigger, it takes her awhile but she can do it...silly dog! ...It is also hard to get a straight on photo of her...she is looking at you and as soon as I click the button...she moves first one way.....
...and then the other way...
...then this way...
...then that way...
...then down...then up...and aahaa! it!
...sort of...
taadaa!...I did get a few head on...she is so funny with this bone.

Saturday Photo Hunt - Fall

This weeks Saturday Photo Hunt is Fall - well fall is hard to capture in a photo in south Florida. So my first is of our prickly pear cacti that had a "fall" during a heavy rain which we usually don't get in late "fall" maybe early fall after all it still is hurricane season until the end of November.
This was taken in the "fall" and it is a symbol of "quietly" in my mind. The vine are near the end of there summer growth, quietly waiting for fall.
This series of photos are of a bitter apple that appears (the photo was taken in) Fall!

Some of our "fall" foliage is shown here on my banana tree...
...and many shells fall up onto the beach in "fall"...
...although bananas can bloom all through the year, I seem to be getting many now in the fall!

Saturday Photo Hunt - "Mural"

For this weeks photo hunt "mural"...a day late, but I had this mural photo from an anniversary post on my food blog a while back. We went to Anna Maria Island and it is always so colorful and beautiful's like going on vacation just 40 minutes away! Many of the building in this little coastal town are painted such pretty colors and I love the feel of the whole town. Here is the original post on The Tiny Skillet.
