Thanksgiving View This Year and Last

This was the view last Thanksgiving outside the window from my aunt and uncle's house in Bradenton. Florida.

...and this was the view this year...it looks like they got rid of a tree and now you can see the palm tree...

...and this was a little later...I guess we usually eat around the same time each year.

Last year....
This year!!

Sand Bar at Low Tide ~ Watery Wednesday

We were able to take our boat our on this beautiful Sunday. It was at low tide and you can see many of the sand bars at this time. Here was a family that anchored their boat right up on the sandbar.

This dog was having so much fun, I loved watching him run along the sand bar.

It has been a while since I've linked to Watery Wednesday, I thought you all might be a little tied of all my beach, sea birds, sunset photos. Now that I have something from the boat and a little different, I'm adding this to Watery Wednesday.

Yes...Another Sunset ~ Sky Watch Friday~

We never know when we head out to the beach for sunset what kind of sunset we'll see. It can be stunning with fantastic cloud formation, or just plan clear sky. This one looked OK, sometimes when we get there it's cloudy on the horizon.
But then there are times when one little cloud on the horizon is just in the wrong spot...right where the sun was setting.

Yup...one little cloud on the horizon...

I wasn't sure if this would show up...it looked so cool in person the way it divided the sky like that!

Mellow Yellow Monday ~ Dinning outside ~

The best thing about living in Florida is this time of year when we can really enjoy eating outside.
The weather is perfect...not too hot...not too cool. The view is stunning, and relaxing.
It's the time right before the snow birds and tourist start to come and invade sun coast.

Many outdoor eating area in Sarasota now allows pets to be with you as you dine. The do have to stay off the tables and are not to use any tableware. Most restaurants will provide water bowls, hand sanitizer, and a few doggie treat specials! We've enjoyed bringing our dog here for some time now. The park that is here also allows dogs, and they have a fountain and playground for the kids. Also a marina for the sport fisherman and party barge. Always a nice place to visit.

With it's nice new yellow umbrellas I am adding this to Mellow Yellow Monday .

What'cha Doing? ~ Camera Critters ~

Our friends have two border collies, and we will watch them for them when they go out of town. We have an Australian Shepherd, so we are very familiar with the behavior of herding dogs. However...the house gets very small with three dogs in the house, let alone three herding dogs. Of course they have to be everywhere you are, they should call them "shadow" dogs.

Even when you are trying to use the bathroom...

...this is what you'll see...

...better remember to lock the door!

I am sharing them with Camera Critters this week. Please check it out to see more!
