High and dry...

...above the water on Alligator Point, which isn't too far south of Sopchoppy, Florida. This would be a good place to stay, should any oil penetrate this area. The loss of birds and other creatures in the northern Gulf of Mexico is daunting. Only time will tell the totality of this disastrous oil spill. We continue to pray.
My blue background is a reminder of what our Gulf waters should look like.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Says a lot when even the boats don't want to be in the water! Keep the faith Judy, better times are ahead! ;-)

i bet they are itching for a dip in the pool:) This looks like a very nice 'boat-park'!:)

@tyan: Interestingly, so many of the homes along this stretch had their own boat lifts.

Such a cool shot they sure have them at a good height, but then again not sure how much the water rises, lets hope this area stays clean this oil spill is bad enough now but dread where the weather and winds may take it eventually :(

@JJ: I don't know what the tidal rise is either, but I hope these boats get some use this summer and that oil doesn't keep them in their slings.

nice shoot Judy. I've never seen boats raised out of the water like that. Interesting. 0

@Marion: Lots of boats are raised out of the water to keep them safe from storms and high water. They're well secured and if the owners couldn't be on the premises, the boats would be safer up high rather than banging around against a dock.
