Yo, why didn't ya' tell me I forgot to share these?
Last week in St. Augustine, dropping crossbars stopped me at the RR crossing just down the road from where my grandparents once lived. It happened that I was the first vehicle and it also happened that my camera was sitting next to me in the passenger seat ready to go.
I shot this short train as it approached the crossing, all the while thinking, that might be my cousin Rick driving it. I couldn't identify the folks in the engine as it went by, but he's a Florida East Coast railway guy and makes this trip routinely.
The spires in the background are Flagler College (The old Ponce DeLeon Hotel) and the tall building just to the right and behind the engine is one of the old Florida East Coast Railway office buildings. These days they are dorms for Flagler College I believe ... might be wrong on that, but I doubt it.
Well, it's been about 2 years since I posted the heartbreaking video of the wounded deer that wandered into my front forest to die. In a series of icky posts, we checked on the decomposition of the deer over a year, (remember?) and then I let that series die.
Last week when I was tracking down that Barred Owl's location, I came across her remains again and thought you might just be wondering how she was doing.
Emma couldn't be here on her official birthday last month due to other fun obligations, so we toasted her a little late, but as soon as we could get her.
The menu was BBQ ribs, mac and cheese, yeasty rolls, and fresh green beans.
Dress was casual.
Look at Katie with her paper towel bib.
"Baby, is that your best T-shirt or something?"
Junior's plan seems more environmentally friendly, no waste of paper, just eat with abandon and then go shower off.
Here's a view looking uphill from the owl tree towards PFHQ proper.
I love the way the palms hide the junk on the porch.
We look almost civilized.
