    A “Small” Bit of History 

    I found this little- dilapidated shed or animal shelter while out exploring:

    This is for the Fun Foto Challenge:https://ceenphotography.com/2016/05/24/cees-fun-foto-challenge-architecture/

    I do not know what decade it would have been built, but it is an interesting structure.

    The Photo challenge theme this week is architecture.

    Poor, Poor, Poor, neglected and abandoned structure.

    I know I am not alone in finding buildings abandoned and interesting that are a part of history unknown fascinating.

    This week’s theme is a single flower or bud. I could not resist using this photo of and old vintage blouse of mine with a beautiful rose bloom on it.

    I Bring The “Beach” Inside 

    I thought I would join in this week with something I haven’t participated in for awhile, The Word Press Daily Prompt.  Besides, I love the theme of “Beach” ………

    Daily Prompt On Word Press

    It has been years since I went to any ocean beach. I had relatives when I was young that lived in the coolest town named Mukilteo.

    muk beach

    The place is close by Everette, Washington State. These were my Pacific Ocean Days.

    I lived In Florida- Pensacola for several years. Those were My “Atlantic Ocean” Days. Which ocean do you prefer? I actually like the wild Pacific, but then when you are a kid it just seems a tad more magical, so I may be biased because of age.

    Now I am so far away from those beaches in Missouri.

    There are some nice shorelines around other water bodies here, but I miss the ocean trips.

    So I came up with an idea to correct in my own home, the ocean:

      Wonderful ideas here! The beach is a wonderful getaway and now you can enjoy it without even leaving home xx

      I love this. Absolutely love this. I’m an ocean person too. Have lived near to the Atlantic all my life (NYC and Miami). I’m in the process of moving to Jacksonville. I visited the Pacific a few years ago when celebrating my then 90 year old aunt’s birthday. It is wild and magical. But, I have an attachment to the Atlantic Ocean.

      I miss the beach, Nike. I never knew you lived in New York. My son was living in Stuart up the Atlantic coast for a couple years. Thanks for your comment.

        Stuart is where the airport is, right? I know the general area. My brother lives in Duchess County. In fact, I’m going to visit him and his wife today.

        • blueribbonfair 7:28 pm on May 26, 2016 Permalink

          My son is here visiting, but I will ask him. He flies a lot so it is probably there. He says it is ritzy and does not care for it, so he is moving. He works and drives cruise ships in the summer in Alaska. After that, he may move back where we are or where is older brother and family are still in Washington.

          My son says they have an airport that the blue angels fly out of. He hasn’t ever flown out of there. Have a great weekend Nike.

        • NikeChillemi 3:10 am on August 12, 2016 Permalink

          I don’t know anything about the Blue Angels flying there, but it’s a modern airport.

      Lovely post. I was born in a city that lies just next to the sea which meant a lot of beautiful beaches. Where I live right now, there is not even one. I miss going to the beach. Your idea just helped me.. now I can bring the beach at home to me ^_^
      P.S. im an owl fan too.. ❤

      Beautiful art to bring the beach into your home, reminded me of a full wall mural a friend did for me setting sand, shells and some seaweed into it. Altho I no longer live there many others have had the joy of that refreshing mural!

      Loved this! Something “spiritual” about the beach and ocean right? I am a “UGE” Lighthouse collector… Cat

    What is up with the day I decide to do a long post and even write stuff with the daily prompt and Word Press will not post today or do my photos. I am so frustrated! the post needs to be done today or it will not be in on time. Murphy’s Law in terrifying action!

      But it worked on this spot! After I wrote this I thought it probably would not work on posting this either.
