Sydney Harbor Bridge and Opera House

My husbands sister lives in Australia along with her 6 children, their spouses and grandchildren.  Back in 2006 we attended our nieces wedding in Queensland.  We spent several days exploring Sydney and enjoyed the view from a boat touring the harbor.

Sanibel Island Lighthouse

Besides my home, my favorite place to be is on Sanibel Island, FL.  We have been vacationing there as a family since the late 1980’s.  One of the first things we have always looked for when crossing over the causeway from Ft. Meyers to the island is the Lighthouse.

Street Art

Back in March of 2018,  I went to Louisiana for a week long work trip with 5 other women from my church.  On our return trip we stopped at the most unusual spot in Biloxi, Mississippi for lunch.  Several people before we left Louisiana had recommended we stop at “Le Bakery”.  Hearing the name we all immediately thought it had to be a French restaurant.  No, we were informed it was not.  The restaurant sold the most amazingly scrumptious  bakery items but they also served Asian and Vietnamese food!  Well, we took the bait and stopped.  True to form the bakery items were delicious and the Vietnamese sandwiches were very unique.

On the brick exterior of the restaurant almost the entire wall had been painted by local Biloxi students.  I really liked this large portrait of a male/female in the center of the sentiments left by the students.  I couldn’t decide what sex the portrait was supposed to be, maybe that was artists intention.
