Wow ... Found in N.W. Florida

Valentine's Day is the day for love.  Love for life, love for family, love for your fellow man, and love for nature.  So in keeping with the theme of this blog, on Valentine's Day while I sat on the back porch watching my husband play softball with our three children I heard my 4 yr. old son (who was batting) exclaim; "Hey look at that eagle."  I automatically corrected without even looking, that's not an eagle when my husband said, oh yes it is.  As the huge bird approached the field behind our house you could see his white tail feathers and the white feathers on his head.  I was stunned, my girls delighted in watching it gracefully soar and land.  I ran for my camera but by the time I swapped the lenses it was too far away.  I think it was a blessing to see the magnificent bird and share the experience with the people I love.   I caught myself looking over the tops of the planted pines all afternoon wondering when the eagle would return, hoping it would return.

About me

Just a little background on this blog, so you will know what to expect, not that you should expect any certain format or topic but I started this blog to share the beauty of this area with those of you who have never been to this part of the country.  I live on a century pioneer farm; which is just a fancy way of saying my husbands family has owned this land for more that a hundred years.  The is beauty in the quiet moments on this farm and being rather close to the beaches of south walton, we have the best of both worlds.  I am no wonderful photographer, but I will share my photos with you.
