through-the-bluebells-med-beachI never fancied myself a nature photographer, but when you’re somewhere so beautiful and unique, you can’t help but want to take pictures of EVERYTHING. This little beach is part of Fontainebleau State Park in Mandeville, Louisiana. The body of water behind me is Lake Pontchartrain, and if you squint at the horizon, you’ll see the Causeway bridge which goes from the Northshore to the Southshore and onward to New Orleans.

through-the-bluebells-beach-medWe’re getting little glimpses of fall here. The weather is still mostly hot, but we’ve had a couple of cool mornings. Maybe the beach is that last place people want to go when it’s autumn, but that’s when I feel like I can really enjoy it. No sunburns or sweating – sign me up!

Sleeves for days!

Sleeves for days!

I’ve talked about “unicorns” here before – dresses you love but, for whatever reason, they’re difficult to find. I thought I was out of luck with this “Through the Bluebells Dress” from ModCloth. When they first introduced it back in the spring, my size went out of stock really fast, so I assumed I was out of luck. I searched eBay and swap groups, and still came up empty-handed. But guess what awesome thing happened – ModCloth brought it back! Is a “resurrected unicorn” a thing? Anyway, I don’t own a lot of billowy clothes, so the sleeves are like a new toy. Hopefully I don’t pass out from all the spinning…

Don’t let the beauty of these cypress trees fool you – they’re vicious! I hit my foot on one of the “knees,” and broke my toe! I’m okay; it wasn’t one of the important ones. Just a reminder to be careful out there!
