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.

Cali-for-ni-A

Hey ya’ll.

After a much needed social media break (sans Facebook – which might become a permanent separation) – I’m back and feeling refreshed.

Bill and I took to the California roadways in the past month.

We left a snowy Lake Tahoe in Nevada to the rain soaked and blooming neighboring state – blanketed in 50 shades of green and everything else on the color wheel.

In Sacramento the water nearly lapped Highway 50 and ducks by the thousand floated in their glory.

Working our way to Point Reyes via Hwy 37 and 1 the narrow windy roads overflowed in lushness.

“Oh my gosh – look at that.” must have passed our lips 100 times – it’s a wonder that we didn’t wreck.

The ocean sparkled, colors popped, pebbles glistened and the ice plants reached for the skies.

The desert was alive with yellow and purple as far as the eye could see. Mother nature nurtured.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Happy New Year and it’s a new year indeed.

Thanks again for indulging me with last year’s Photo of the Day. It gave me the opportunity to really practice my craft.

In the meantime, there are private lessons with the Michelangelo of pottery. A true master in his artistry.

It’s just for fun – love the art of creating and getting my hands dirty.

Meet my instructor Kris – owner of Fire and Earth Pottery here in Charleston.

He makes mind blowing and mesmerizing videos of his work.
