Fairhope, a charming community on Alabama’s Gulf Coast, comes alive with color and decorations during the Christmas season.
Enjoy this video montage shot earlier this week, showing what Fairhope looks like at Christmas…
Nancy Galloway spotted an unusual sight from her home on Lake Logan Martin Saturday: a huge flock of visiting pelicans apparently passing through the area.
She said the amazing thing was the size of the birds, dwarfing the Canadian Geese that frequent the area. They stayed around for about an hour before moving on.
Thanks for sharing, Nancy!
As many folks know, my daughter lives in Chicago. Yesterday afternoon she sent me a short video she took on her way to her job at the Royal George Theater. I know we’ve all had a good deal of snow this winter, but I thought you might find it interesting to see another Chicago snow – especially from afar!
The video also underscores the extreme snowfall seen in Chicago this season from the snowfall graph that Bill Murray posted Sunday and repeated here.
If you’re looking for something fun to do, stop in at Helena Market Days, in its last month of operation for the summer.
The annual farmer’s market that runs from June through August off Hwy 261 by Buck Creek in Helena has become a favorite of folks from throughout the Shelby Co. area.
You won’t find a fresher assortment of peaches (from Chilton county, of course), peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, okra, squash and other fruits and vegetables.
Highly recommended: Fresh peaches cooked on the grill!
More information about Market Days is available by visiting the Market Days website.
Friend of the Blog Jenny Ellison and her husband made a special trip to Corbin, Kentucky this weekend for one specific purpose: to take photographs of moonbows.
Moonbows, or lunar rainbows, are hard to capture. To do so requires a bright moon and a moisture source, like spray from a waterfall. Generally, the colors aren’t visible to the naked eye. It takes a long exposure photograph to see the colors.
Enjoy the product of her work.
