The road to home

On our way to the Mountain Farmlet we crossed over the bridge into Decatur and saw something we never expected to see.  I wanted pictures, but we were late because I had forgotten my purse and we had to go back and get it…

I would have just lived without it, but the keys were in it!  😯

On our way home Bob parked along the docks long enough for me to get this.

I liked them better in this light anyway.  Yes, there are two!

    I know those boats! That has to be one of the replicas of Columbus’s ships – the Nina and the Pinta were in Corpus Christi a few years ago and we toured them. How cool that they’re in your area, and that’s a great photo!

      I’m glad you like it, Chantal. I was so disappointed when I realized I didn’t have my purse, but it would have been worse if Bob hadn’t asked me to write something down for him. I went to get a pen out of the bag and that’s when I realized I didn’t have it. The funny thing about it was that when Bob got into the truck he said, “We are missing something.” Yet, neither of us were able to determine what it was.

      That was 50 miles of wasted driving yesterday. Though, it would have really been sad to go the whole 100 miles and then realize it when we wanted to unlock the door! 😛

        Yknow, that’s EXACTLY what I was thinking! If you hadn’t had to go back, you wouldn’t have been at the Marina at this exact moment in time. Heck, you might not even have stopped at all…
        “All things to a purpose…” as Grandma always said; )
        Gorgeous silhouettes.
        Awesome detail.
        Incredible shading.
        Just an amazing composition: )
        It (literally) made me feel like I’d just stepped back a few centuries…

    Lynda, what a terrific shot!! Well worth 50 extra miles … well, it’s worth if for us … maybe not you 🙂
    I had to chuckle when you quoted Bob as saying “we’re missing something”

    • Lynda says:

      Honestly, LB, that bag is hard to miss. It is the size of an old fashioned carpet bag!!! How could we not realize it wasn’t there? I keep a 100ft measuring tape, medications and preparations, phone, my GPS device, lunch, snacks, water bottle, pens and paper, sketch pad… and the list goes on. This is a bag I bought to beat the airline carry-on restrictions. I now use it to haul the most often used things to the Mountain Farmlet. Grab the bag and I know I will be able to measure a wall, fix a boo-boo, take a note, or make a call, etc, etc…

      And of course the keys stay in that bag so I won’t forget them. ;P

      Lori, you are the second person who mentioned seeing these before. I guess if Bob gets his car back before they are gone, then perhaps I should go visit and take the tour! Thank you, Lori!

    What a magnificent photo ! I have twice visited the Deep South of the USA – stayed in New Orleans, Milledgeville, (Georgia), Nashville, (Sewannee), Bluffton (southern South Carolina – on the coast), and visited Savannah and Charleston too. I LOVE that part of the world !

So how about that? Go on; say something!
