This is one of my favorite times of the year. Everything is full of color. New leaves are coming out on the trees. The grass is bright green. The flowers are in full bloom. God just gets out his paintbrush and goes to town. Personally I have always wondered if he lets Van Gogh, Monet and O'Keeffe have a little fun helping. Here are a few pictures of the few I have in my yard.
Dolphin! Just say the "d word" and we all look. Can't help but love those playful sea creatures that swim along with the boat. These dolphin came to swim in Valkyrie's bow wake off and on all day long as we were traveling along the coast of the Carolinas. We went out the St. Mary's Inlet on the Georgia/Florida line. It took just over two full days to get to Cape Lookout, NC. This video was shot along the way. We were several miles offshore and couldn't see land. The water was clear and calm. If you look closely, you can see the reflection of the bow in the water. If you listen closely, esp. at the beginning, you can hear the dolphins clicking. I added music to this one (at the request of a good friend :-)). Hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed the dolphin!!!
I know! I promised the dolphin video and haven't delivered. I really did shoot some great video. But life has this habit of getting in my way of blogging. I've just been out enjoying and living. Plus the dolphin came and went all day long. That means that I shot tons of video and took way too many photos. Looking at all that video and trying to decide what to keep and what to cut was hard. The video is just over 3 minutes long which is probably longer than most folks want to watch. Just be glad I didn't leave in all the video! It is now being uploaded by YouTube. I promise to hurry up and post it once it is finished uploading!
