We would love to see some photos of your area. Do you have one you can share?
I will start with this one from America's Favorite Drive 459 miles of non stop driving - no signage, nothing commercial along this fantastic scenic road - - The Blue Ridge Parkway.

I know this is going to sound dumb, but what if your car can't make it 459 miles on a tank of gas? Is there really NOTHING commercial???? How does that work?

The max speed is 45 mph so noone drives it in one go. You get OFF the BRP in any of the small towns along the way. We are 15 miles from 3 exits off the BRP, you could come here and fuel up, eat and sleep with us. :)

Won't that be a bit crowded?

OH, one of our very favorite "get a ways" when we lived in NC. My best memory is a trip out in early June to the BRP to see the rhodos, driving up to Mt. Mitchell (the highest point in NC) and getting caught in a snowstorm! We got some great pics of the rhodos IN the snow...I'll have to dig them up!
Driving on that road is just SO cathartic... Thanks for the smile in my day today

Stiltsville....There were eleven of these houses built way back in the days of prohibition and are located a few miles from the Miami shore in the flats on the edge of the Atlantic. It's amazing that seven of them remain today despite decades of hurricanes that have blown through here. They were used as party houses for drinking and gambling during prohibition. The occupants could see the police coming (by boat) from far away giving them plenty of time to get rid of the evidence, if necessary. That was the purpose of these houses being built out at sea.

Catlady breathtaking! How are you liking this rain? (other than beating down the irises) We have flowers in places we have never had them, like these coral colored irises! This rain is doing us so much good! Our lawn looks like it is super fertilized and we have never watered it yet.

You have a VERY unique view. The rest of us have land, trees, grass, boring things like that...you have houses sitting in the middle of the ocean!

Here is a collage of florals in bloom here: Starting on the top right - miniture gardenias, large gardenias, climbing rose, miniture gardenias w/azaleas in background, 2 pics of azaleas (these are my late bloomers), and last - my arbor full of confederate jasmine intertwined with 7sister roses. All pictures taken tonight - we are going down into the 50's tonight after having lows in the mid 70's earlier this week... So I plan to enjoy what may be our last bit of cool before summer really hits!
