Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Blogging Friends



I can’t say enough good things about the folks you meet in the RV world.  Today Mike and I had the opportunity to finally meet Paul and Margery Zeller.  We have followed their blog, Living Our Dream, for several years. 


If you haven’t had the privilege of reading their full-time adventure I recommend you drop over and pay them a visit.  It is always fun to finally meet up with our blog buddies. 

They are staying at FDR state park for about a week and enjoying the beauty of the area, including Callaway Gardens.  We all decided to meet for a late lunch or early supper, lupper, at Three Little Pigs in Pine Mountain.  We arrived at about the same time and immediately shared hugs and started talking as if we had known each other forever.  That is the way it is with this lifestyle!!   The food was great, and plentiful, but the fellowship and conversation was even better!!!

We sat and talked with each other for over two hours!!  Time flies when you are with friends and having fun!!  All to soon it was time to go our separate ways.  It was fun sharing the time and our hearts with each other.   We had our “so long” hugs and hope to see them again very soon.

We Are Expecting


Bluebirds that is…      DSC_5956-001


We noticed several bluebirds out and about the other day and yesterday we saw the new parents taking roost in our birdhouse and mom making her nest.  They are such beautiful birds and so fun to watch.  The birdhouse is about 30 feet from our front door so we should have a good view of the upcoming family.  I took several pictures of the bluebirds so we wanted to share them with you.





Also, the azaleas in our back yard are about a week away of peaking in their blooms.  The weather has been so warm we are about 2 weeks ahead of the season with the blooms.



   While we were taking pics of the bluebirds, I couldn’t resist taking a pic of this Robin.   DSC_5954-001

    We hope each of you had a great weekend and have a safe and great week.  Thanks for letting us share some of our birds with you!
