My canine model & traveling buddy Sofie-Darla was a good sport during our “photo shoot” this morning.

She was paid handsomely in treats for her time and effort.

Behind the scenes: Her sticking her tongue out at me was a pretty good indication as to how she really felt about the Costume Photos idea!

Happy Halloween from me, Sofie-Darla, & the Kitty Crew!

Following “A Feeling” – Saving A Life

Do you ever just *feel* like you’re supposed to be someplace, and even though you initially resist, you go anyway, only to realize there was definitely a reason for your being drawn there?

Earlier this week, I went in search of a new location to take photos of the full moon rising.

First stop was the Marina, but I didn’t like the view of the horizon. Next, I drove to a pier, but it was too crowded.

Instead, the “feeling” led me down a deserted side road with a great view of the horizon, but after setting up my tripod, I kept hearing rustling coming from down in the gaps of the large red jetty rocks. Upon closer inspection, I spotted a scared, injured trapped seagull.

Fortunately, the renowned wildlife rescue facility on Mustang Island was just up the road, so without hesitation, I ran to get help.

The professionals came quickly, and it was an easy catch for them. They said the injured seagull’s wings were sorely battered, where s/he had probably been trying to get out of there all day. Luckily, they expect the seagull to make a full recovery after some TLC & rest.

There’s no doubt “Intuition” led me to that deserted spot this evening, and there’s one lucky little bird with one heck of a guardian angel.

After all, angels have wings, too.

By the way, here is one of the photos I got of the full moon, complete with a pelican may have witnessed entire rescue scene.

Even though I’m on the road and living the RV Life, I’m grateful for the opportunity to make my voice heard.

Proud to be an American!

Throwback Thursday

Big Thicket National Forest (near Livingston, Texas)

Upon my return to Deep East Texas in the early Spring of 2015, I enjoyed exploring the Big Thicket National Forest during a weekly ritual I call my “Sunday Morning Gratitude.”

This focused quiet time allows me to reflect on my blessings, express thanks for the special people in my life, and stand in humble awe of God’s majestic creation.

One morning, I took a back road and ended up at this place. It was so breathtaking and grand, yet incredibly still and silent.

A perfect setting for reflection and giving thanks for abundant blessings.

Hope you have a blessed day today.

AmyO.
