Paradise in the middle of  a muddy Mangrove channel.



Creation was alive with it's creatures. Fish, rays, turtles, dolphins and shark were all encountered and the weather was spectacular!

My new North Face Outsider Hat was a joy to have on the open water with the bright sun beaming from the heavens!

Coach Gone Coastal

Coach Gone Coastal
Many times when I am out in the backyard sawing and banging around I hear what sounds like an echo not fifty feet to the East.Turn out their is an artist in residence.

Coach Gone Coastal

My neighbor former high school coach is pursuing his passion for art and in a way that fascinates. He repurposes all kinds of materials and transforms them into whimsical, colorful and desirable works of art.

Coach Gone Coastal

The materials he uses can be just as fascinating as the subjects he chooses and his enthusiasm for his craft is contagious. He is just getting started and what a start it is!

Coach Gone Coastal

His subjects all have a quirky story behind them. Either personal or steeped in local history a winning combination in my book.

Coach Gone Coastal

Thank you Coach Ray for sharing your art much success to you!

The Owls Of 2015

I Count Four This Year!

I have been mostly quiet about my owl friends this year but the little owl couple outside my bedroom window have been diligently fulfilling their sacred duty as given by the Creator of Universe.

I poked the camera in the entrance of the owl house yesterday to make sure all was well and it captured an image of what I believe is four not so little owlets.


I do not think it will be long before they begin to emerge and scamper about the tree!

Great Grandma's Zip Line

Great Grandma's Zip Line

I have been constructing a small zip line for a Great Grandma I know and it is almost finished. Below is a video recorded by an ace reporter who also happens to be a professional zip liner.

With all the forces exerted on the two support poles it takes a lot of adjusting to get the tension right.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Joe had Monday off.

Brofishing April 27, 2015

My brother had Monday off so he called Sunday to say. “Let’s go fishing”. We headed out from Ballast Point Park at around 9:00 am and motored out for the 12:00 pm high tide.

Brofishing April 27, 2015

It was a silver and grey day at the start but the wind died down and the blue skies opened up above soon enough.

Brofishing April 27, 2015

We spent a some time beach at Pine Key aka (beer can island) before fishing around a channel marker just to the East.

Brofishing April 27, 2015

Brother caught this fine specimen an Atlantic Spanish mackerel, Scomberomorus maculatus. Strangely of late Joe who is usually the last to want to head home is always the first to suggest we pack it in. Something about not wanting to be to long away from his baby.

Thanksgiving Visit

Many thanks to the Creator of the Universe for His handy work and for being the Love we all share!
