A few weeks ago, I heard speculation that gas prices would be reaching the $3 mark by summertime, but I wasn’t expecting it to be this soon. I paid $3.05/gal for gas today, and that sucks! It’s getting to the point people have to really start making room in their budgets for gas. Just putting… Read more »

What is the Word Bird

What is the Word Bird

I was just about to pack up to leave work today when I saw this bird land on the wall right outside my window. I grabbed my camera, fully expecting him to fly off before I snapped the pic. But, to my surprise, he just stood and posed for me. James, any idea what type… Read more »

Pile on the Pics

Pile on the Pics

I spent the majority of the day today getting pictures sorted, compiled, and polished that I almost forgot to actually take a picture for the day. At 11:30pm, I searched all over the house to find something worthy of today’s Piccal entry, and at last I settled on the program I’d spent most of the… Read more »

Destin Farewell

Destin Farewell

We all got up early, got packed up, and headed out from the condo at around 8:15am today. We then followed tradition as we stopped by Chik-fil-a for our final group meal. We ended up all heading out of Destin around 9:00am. The ride home is always bittersweet for me; I’m typically ready to get… Read more »

For those that know Traci, you know that she’s not big into video games. That’s something I don’t quite understand, knowing how competitive she is. Traci moaned and groaned about me bringing my games to Destin this year, so I was expecting her to avoid playing these types of games at all costs. For awhile,… Read more »

I was trying out my 75-300mm lens off the balcony of our 12th floor room and took a few scenic shots. This one, in my opinion, turned out to be the best.

Another Broken Egg Cafe

Another Broken Egg Cafe

I called earlier in the week to see if the Another Broken Egg Cafe in Destin took reservations, and unfortunately they don’t. The lady did say that if we arrive before 8am (they open at 7am), then we shouldn’t have a problem getting in. I was delighted that this was indeed the case. The food… Read more »

Destin Arrival

Destin Arrival

We all took a half-day at work today and in the early afternoon we headed down to Destin, FL. We left Nashville around 1:50pm and met up with James around 9:30pm at the condo. We were road-weary and hungry, so we ordered some Pizza Hut and, for the life of me, I couldn’t think of… Read more »

S’GO!!!

S’GO!!!

No Photoshop trickery here; I set my camera to a 25 second exposure time and spelled out “Destin” with my trusty Petzl Tikka

Tub Thumpin’

Tub Thumpin’

Today, Bath-Fitters came and installed a new wall around our tub. The pre-existing tile was in poor condition when we moved in. It was actually cracked in a few places and water was leaking behind the walls, which was damaging the floor and causing mold to grow. We neutralized the mold with some bleach and… Read more »
