Post Card from Dauphin Island... by LadyAliceofOz Post Card from Dauphin Island... by LadyAliceofOz
:yawnstretch: ...as we're waking up this morning (at the campground in Carthage, Missouri)... and drinking our :coffeecup: ...and getting ready to head for home :eager: ...on the last leg of our journey... it's fun to think over this fall's adventure :meditation:

...as usual, we mixed :work: with :iconvacationplz: ...and :excited: this time, we actually went someplace :new: ...and now have yet another BEACH to call our own! :relax:

So here's the postcard from Dauphin Island, Alabama :iconvacationplz: ...and over the winter, when it's :iconshiverplz: and :snowing: outside... we'll be trying to figure out how to get back there! :plotting: :eager: :XD:

Thank you very much my friend! :hug: and I really appreciate both the praise John, and the :+fav: :w00t:
:whisper: if you look very closely :eyes: you'll see that there is folded up beach chair embedded in the sand, just before you get to the seagull :O

:hmm::confused: had never thought of that :stupidme: ...if I am... :woohoo: I cannot think of anything I rather be more :#1:

:iconwonderingplz: so maybe that's why they keep landing very close to me on the seawall, on the last night that we were in Mexico Beach?? they knew I was going home, and wouldn't see them for awhile?? :hmm: I DO love my skyrats!! :squee:

Thanks Ruth! :iconkissmote: and thanks for the :+fav:, too! :iconswingonastarplz:

:laughing: when I read your comment Candie... I was :iconwonderingplz: what made you think this was a sunrise shot? :confused: Then I re-read my artist's comments :blahblah: and realized that I forgot to mention that we were drinking our :coffeecup: at the campground in Carthage, Missouri, on our way home :giggle:
:iconlovenodplz: Remember...we're night owls...so I think there are only 2 sunrise shots in my entire gallery :lmao: ...and I remember just how scratchy my eyes felt on both occasions! :rofl:

When you check out Dauphin Island :nod: ...should you decide to go there...be sure to stock up on essentials, before your arrival. The one grocery/hardware store on the island has astronomical prices :ohmygod: ...and anything else is 25 miles away :omg:

Glad you liked this Candie :hug: and thanks for the :+fav:, too! :iconswingonastarplz:

:whisper: well bring your bug spray :iconlovenodplz: ...if they do spray for mosquitos and no-see-ums... they certainly didn't do it when we were there :D

:iconwonderingplz: is Bucket List a good movie? :film:

Well mosquitos (pesky little blood suckers) are not new to me. Up here they have been known to carry off grown men never to be seen again. :faint:

Yes, 'Bucket List' is a good movie. (but you might need a tissue if I remember correctly)

:laughing: :nod: I should have known that Alice :D and I did actually contemplate whether it was a sunrise or sunset; and then concluded it must be a sunrise after reading your comment "as were waking up this morning", not realizing that the comment didn't necessarily go with the shot. Take care you little night :iconowlplz: and keep shooting those wonderful sunsets :iconhappysunplz:

:aww: She may be right then, I think animals can tell your feelings about them, that's why wildlife photography doesn't work for everyone :D

How's :relax: working out for you? I'm only asking because I know you're busy with another project :giggle:
