I was trying to add a picture of Bunny to the previous post but for some reason the picture disappeared! I walked across the street to the lodge where I had to perch on the stair landing and I guess cross my fingers and pat my head! The desk clerk finally went upstairs and turned the router off and on. Voila! Bunny’s picture reappeared! So here she is. She sent this photo as she was leaving to make a presentation to the elementary school.
We took Dan to Bozeman airport Sunday and headed east to Devils Tower. We had no wifi and no cell at Lytle Creek, our B & B just a couple of miles from the park. It was a beautiful place. I’m writing now from the cabin at Custer State Park still no wifi so photos will be limited.
We highly recommend it. Quiet, quaint and down a dirt road from Devils Tower. It’s a ten minute drive to Hulett, population of about 500! But the eating there was excellent and Lynn and I each had a stone therapy massage from Bunny Sings Wolf, a Lakota healing woman. That’s a whole other blog!
Virgin Mary with head bowed kept watch over the campsite.
I was sitting on my deck recently watching the hummingbirds fighting for a spot at the feeder when I noticed this beautiful Swallowtail feasting on my zinnias. I got my camera and patiently waited for the butterfly to land. After several blurred photos I finally got one. Looking at the image I appreciate the beauty of nature even more. Man cannot create this delicate wonder. As summer comes to an end and flowers begin to fade, take a moment to enjoy the colors, sounds and smells of nature as she transitions into the warm colors of fall.
We discovered Ruby’s on this trip. Sorry we didn’t go there last trip. The food is out of this world! We went on Tuesday night. It’s off season here so there was no crowd. We were told by locals that you can’t get a seat during peak season. We found out why. First night Dan got meatball Parmesan and I got pasta sampler. Every bite was a taste experience. There was more than enough food so we took home leftovers.
Friday night we went again. This time we got fried zucchini with home made marinara. I’m told they are going to start selling the marinara. I’ll be first in line to order! I tried fettuccini Alfredo, not disappointed at all. Dan got the red snapper stuffed with artichokes and mushrooms with a side of pasta. Again, we were in tastebuds heaven. Finishing up we shared a cannoli, yummy. Wish Ruby would move to Tennessee! If you are ever in Pompano, you must try Ruby’s.
I like my Fuji XT-10 camera. I’ve had it sense December and I’m finally beginning to know its settings and what it will do. I’ve been a Canon person for 40 years and making the change was quite challenging, but I think we are now good friends. I am blessed this trip to Pompano Beach because my bed faces the balcony and all I have to do is step outside to make the sunrise. Every one is different! I have yet to get the sun coming up directly on the ocean. Seems there are always low clouds hugging the sea. Oh well, this shot works for me. Another gorgeous day at the beach. Time for coffee! Have a beautiful day!
