Hello from the Cold South

We are in Pensacola Beach for a week and it is freezing. Yesterday we were able to walk the beach and collect shells in the morning, but this morning when I went out to try to get a picture of the sunrise, I froze. I found out when I got back inside that it was 32º with a wind chill of 25º.

Here are a couple of pix of our trip:


This is a picture of the morning sky about 1/2 mile from out house at we set out on Sunday morning. Isn't it beautiful?


This is a picture of the blizzard we drove through on Tuesday in northern Alabama. It was the worst driving we have done all winter - 45 mph with flashers on for about an hour.


These pelicans were resting outside of Joe Patti's fresh seafood place. Aren't they spectacular?!
My internet access has been spotty at best, but I will try to post as often as I can. I notice that Michigan is being slammed with a snowstorm, and are expecting about a foot. I am hoping that things will be clearer when we return and that we don't have to drive through any awful weather.

Take care!


  1. Oh Vicki - it's warmer there than it is here in the mitten (we have about 8" of snow). Your pictures are great ... keep 'em comin, sweetie, but mostly, have fun! hugs, nancy

  2. Great photos. I hope it warms up some before you have to head back to the Cold(er) North.

  3. I am so sorry! Vicki! Here in Boston, We got none. I was all ready. Camera Loaded! All wrapped up and Fresh Coffee brewed and ready to warm me up after braving the N"oreaster to get photos of Snow on the Ocean. All of Our Heaviest snow has fallen at night.
    I chased it away. It should have been so much more for you. Love the photos- Get more Pelikan Shots.

    Went to the doctor- Told not to be a Salt free diet. I just cut back even more than I have lived recently. Gave the reSalting habit years ago. Chips are approved- but bags full. Just a hand full once in awhile. Dismissed from the Neuro.

  4. Hello Vicki. Cold South indeed. It's in the 30's here tonight in the gulf coast.

    What a magnificent shot is that sunset! You captured in perfectly.

    Thank you very much for your visit. Take care. We are all sad for Renee. She is much loved.
