Moonrise over the Cooper River in Charleston

Charleston is magical – especially on a warm Spring evening when the moon is starting to rise over the Cooper River.

The Waterfront Park was opened  in May 1980, just a few months after Hurricane Hugo.  Once an area of gravel parking lots and overgrown weeds (per Wikipedia). Now a tranquil area to stroll, rest and take in the charm that Charleston has to offer.

Winter Yoga Wonderland

Winter Yoga Wonderland.  A dusting of snow makes for clean, peaceful, fresh mornings.

Lottery Dreams

In the little town of Woodfords, California (population 150) people from the surrounding communities of California and Nevada lined up to buy a ticket for a 1 in 292.2 million chance at winning the Powerball.

It was quite a day in the sleepy town – police car front and center – frontage road closed to thru traffic and a flashing road sign warned about an event ahead.

People stood in line in the 25 degree temperature dreaming about what they would do with their winnings and sharing stories.

We bought tickets for Saturday’s drawing and a few more for next Wednesday’s just in case there is not a winner on Saturday – figuring the line would be miles long.

Good luck everyone.
