Boat - Swamp that is

Just arrived home from a two week vacation on Carnival Cruise Lines. We docked out of New Orleans and spent some time there too.

One day we took a tour on Cajun Pride Swamp Tour BOAT in New Orleans. Since I missed the letter A, I'm showing my ALLIGATOR pictures also.

Here I am holding a baby alligator.

The swamp boat tour was around  1.5 hours and the tour guide called all of the alligators by name and they responded to his voice. Here he is feeding Lefty (he lost his left foot in a fight).

Peanut the Alligator

He also had snakes for us to hold, I WAS HAVING NO PART OF THAT!!!
Granddaughter Olivia had no problem.

The swamp is really a beautiful place, lots of wildlife to see.

We all took turns with the baby alligator!!!!

A graveyard on the swamp.

A cabin that has been there a long time, was redone after Katrina.

What a great adventure for all of us.

Blue Ocean

After a 40th Birthday cruise for our daughter, I'm back after 12 days to blog.  This is what I will miss the most--this gorgeous BLUE WATER.

Arrived home last evening and I'm still unpacking.

Many photos to come of our trip.

Zip line

We have reached the end of this round of ABC WEDNESDAY and it has been a real ride. My thanks go to Mrs. Nesbitt and Roger for keeping us on the train all year long.

My z word is ZIP LINE.   My two sisters and I gave it a go in May.
At first I was holding on pretty tight--by the end of the 6 zips I could let go.

Our group

This one is 

off my bucket list.

Branson Ducks

On our girls weekend to the Ozarks my sisters, Mom and I  rode the Branson Ducks.  These ducks are amphibious troupe carriers  from WWII that have been  redesigned as recreation boats for the lake.

We created such wonderful memories this weekend that will not be forgotten.

Mom took her turn driving the ducks down the river for awhile. She got so tickled!!

Linking with Miss Sally who keeps us in BLUE all year long.

Fun Independence Day

Our 4th of July was such a great time with family. We spent the evening with my Sister, BIL, nephew and great nephew.

Smore's were a must to start the festivities.

In the daylight the BOYS (big and little) shot off their smoke bombs!!

My sister catching the flying parachute!!

When dark arrived we went to the front yard for the huge fireworks display.  One block over an entire neighborhood goes together and purchases fireworks. The show went on solid for about 1.5 hours!!!

The BIG boys shooting sparklers!!

My favorite picture of my nephew.

We had to call it quits about 11:0, little one tuckered out and falling asleep in Uncle's truck.

ABC WEDNESDAY is nearing the end of this round and Y is our letter this week. I have some yellow in one of my gardens.

I love these little glass globe yellow birds.  As I was taking pictures of them this morning I remembered a song that I heard sung  by the Kingston Trio.

The original song was titled "Choucoune" and was composed by Michael Monton. To learn more about this Haitian inspired song check out what Wickipedia has to

Here is my yellow birds and my lillies with yellow centers and solid yellow.

Thanks to U-Tube I found the Yellow Bird  Song for your enjoyment.

Ready, set, go

One of our granddaughters is on a swim team this summer and I took these shots the other night.

She was competing in the breast stroke and free-style.





Hope you are filling your summer with lots of  joyful activities.
