Sunrise over a magical marsh.


As many of you know, I love to fish. What's even better is to spend time with my husband and family while out on the water.  My family knows I love to take sunrise and sunset pictures - I wanted to share this one with you.  We caught a lot of redfish, trout and drum, but what's so cool about Delacroix is the brackish water. We also caught some bass. On day two, we had a massive storm blow through (tornado sirens sounded while we were in the camper) and afterwards gators climbed out of the marsh everywhere. It was the most we'd seen at any one time over the years. Just a great visit. I returned ready to write!! 

Hell's Half Acre!


Dianna: Many of you know that I love to ride my BMW motorcycle (that's it inset with me) just about anywhere that is not bumper-to-bumper traffic. I had the wonderful opportunity of riding Wyoming and Colorado through mountains and everything between in 2016. How many times have you heard the term "Hell's half acre"? It's real. Native Americans used it for bison drives many years ago.

The GRAND MARLIN - Pensacola, FL


Dianna: I love to fish and love to eat fresh fish. But to be able to do that plus enjoy a glass of wine wtih good friends Cindy and Walt Lumpkin as the sun sets on the Gulf coast is priceless.  If you get down to Pensacola Beach, you'll pass the The Grand Marlin on your left as soon as you go through the toll booth. Wonderful food, relaxed atmosphere and good music is often playing on the best deck down there.  

Fishing in Delacroix, LA


I have more than one favorite fishing hole, but this one holds a special place for me, because I get to enjoy a day on the water with my brother James, sister-in-law Teri and my husband. Then we have a down home meal outdoors at the fish camp. Here’s a shot of a redfish I caught on a recent trip. (That’s my baby brother holding it for me.) The other photo on the right is Delacroix, LA at sunset. My soul loves being there with family and friends.
