I hope you enjoy your time here and please come back again. PHOTOS WILL ENLARGE IF CLICKED. The photos are slide show enabled if you click on them.

July Photos for the Week

Take some time to enjoy the sun!

A collection of some recent photos today as I am taking it easy this week to enjoy the sun!

I must have taken 200 photos of this party.

Peacocks in the park put on a show.

The beaches are lovely this time of year.

This deer was climbing up!

The eaglets are all mostly fledged now I think, but still around the nests.

The Spunky Hawk nest where the  Dad and Mom carefully and tenderly raised one eaglet this year.

On Facebook you can see my Island Rambles Page where I post frequently. I post videos frequently on my Island Rambles YouTube Channel also. You can find me on Twitter here.
