Slightly risky...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 8 July 2010 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio. my opinion, but as long as it stands, it is probably a fun place to spend vacation days. This is the last of my photos from our 50th anniversary trip last October. It was such fun to have some of you 'travel' along with us.
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.

I love love this, that beautiful splash of the ocean, what I wouldn't do to have the power of cleaning them all, oh sweet Ladybug, did you ever get the little keychain clock working, 'cause you know it was really new...

@Lorraine: Thank you, dear Lorraine. As for the ladybug clock, I have not found a place to replace the 'stem' which does the winding and time-setting. Somewhere, there has to be a jeweler who will have a stem to fit it; I will keep looking, Sweetie. xx

A great shot! I find this image fascinating as my eyes roll over each post holding up the home wondering if it can withstand the next Hurricane! A great image and I hope you are not melting this Summer!

@Scott F. Schilling: That's exactly what I saw as "risky". It might be fun right now to be there, enjoying the water and the sunsets, but in a hurricane I think I'd be waiting to hear a loud 'snap' or two!
No, we're not melting here, but in NJ, where we're heading next week, they've had triple digit temperatures! Yikes!!!

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

A wonderful view of life along the Gulf. Your viewpoint on the impact of this spill on bird life is also right-on. Am currently at Ghost Ranch, NM this week. Will be going to AZ next week. There's a canyon or two there, waiting for me and my camera... Meanwhile, for the sake of the pelicans, the dolphins, and the people who make the Gulf so beautiful! P.S. - I don't have regular access to internet and may not for the next week or so.

JJ from Jersey City, United States

Sure doesnt look that secure, but being that close to the sea I would risk it

looks more than slightly risky to me........wouldn't want to own that, when another Wilma comes thru !!!

@Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, US: I'm with you, Susan ... fine in fair weather! :D

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

The location is most romantic...sure...To hear the ocean serenading you to sleep is a big present! But...what happens when the ocean gets angry? Now that is the question!
It is also most never have to dress up, just swimming suit is enough! Now THAT is something!

9 Jul 2010 4:50am

@Japanalia: This is on the opposite side of the road from where the raised boats are on the leeward side. When the Gulf gets angry in a hurricane, I would NOT want to be there. You're right about the dress; they probably just spend their days in their bathing suits. :D

Sandy Weston from Madison, Maine, United States

These homes are scattered throughout the Mississippi coastline too but they are always the first to go in their hurricanes :(

@Sandy Weston: I'm surprised this one was still standing, except that no hurricanes have hit this area hard in a good many years ... maybe that's why.
