It has been quite some time since I have done anything on the blog. I had a rough start and after working on it for quite a while to get it worked out someone stole my pictures! Yes, one day they were in my blog and the next they weren't so I've had to quit for a while in order to get over my depression from my loss.

So what I'm doing now is to start our slowly and try simply posting some pictures. I got a new wonderful camera for Christmas and will show you some of what it can do. These first two pictures come from Wahoo Bay Beach where my family and I spend a couple days between Christmas and New Years.

The first is a blossom of what I know as a bottle brush tree. My name for it is a toilet brush tree but my wife tells me in no uncertain terms that that's not the correct name for it. It is a very beautiful tree in that it is made up of almost leafless branches but in the morning these very bright blossoms break out at various places on the tree. Isn't it neat?

The next is a near sundown shot taken as the sun drops on the other side of La Gonave Island. I thought the colors were really striking. I'm easy to please.

PS. Nobody stole the other pictures but I still feel bad about not being able to find them in the blog.
