“By the dawn’s early light”… famous words that mean so much to Americans. Get up early… look at the sunrise and think about the things that might happen that day! Look forward to each day that the Lord grants!
This year in Alaska I met a young guy from the Seattle,WA… Johan Eickmeyer, Johan is kind and thoughtful and very talented. He is a “Fine Art Photographer” and spent the entire day giving me tips and ideas. We left for the day around 6:oo am and caught the sun just as it started to glow over the Kenai River Access Bridge. The rest of the day was spent chasing the perfect shot of Mt. Redoubt (which we did not get) Oh, well I needed a reason to come back next year. Going to new places and meeting new friends is one of my joys. Check out Johan’s website….http://www.johaneickmeyer.com/.
The real Florida for me is the North Central area and the coast line around Cedar Key and the Suwanee River. We love to fish and relax in Steinhatchee (pronounced steen-hat-chee).
A few years ago the community suffered the same craziness in real estate development and greedy pricing that a lot of places did. Developers came in and ripped out the wonderful boat ramp… tore down long time businesses and built expensive condos….. by the way there are many, many well-priced condos for sell now.
On our way to fish one day a couple pulled up in a big black SUV… rolled the dark tinted windows down.. removed their sun glasses and asked… “Where is Stahyn-hat-chee?” You just knew that they were not from here. Boy were they surprised to find that they were in middle of the community (with its 2 gas stations, 1 grocery store, Dollar General and lots of realty companies).
Everyone wants to make a dollar but maybe the problem is we want to make more dollars than we should.
