A Side Of Cars

One thing you wouldn’t know about me, I really love cars. My husband has taught me a thing or two over the years. When we met over 20 years ago, he use to do all the mechanics on his vehicles and even after we got married. Seeing him in his natural habitat, all covered in grease or oil, sexy! 

When we’re out, I love to point to a car and ask him if I got the name right. And I’m especially drawn to special ones that you don’t see too often. So, here’s a few of my captures. The first two are from around town. The third is our 2005 Mustang convertible. I am pretty partial to American muscle cars, although there are a few European cars I wouldn’t mind either.©

The Dunes

“Let my toes teach the shore
how to feel a tranquil life
through the wetness of sands

Let my heart latch the door
of blackness, as all my pain
now blue sky understands”
― Munia Khan

Oasis To My Soul

An oasis with water is cool to my skin 
Giving such shade from the heat of the day
Lets me rest from the world’s loud din

So is your love this way for my soul
A breathe of fresh air and a sweet melody
 Touches my heart, making me whole©

“B” Is For Birds

“When I go down by the sandy shore
I can think of nothing I want more
Than to live by the booming sea
As the seagulls flutter round about me

I can run about–when the tide is out
With the wind and the sand and the sea all about
And the seagulls are swirling and diving for fish
Oh-to live by the sea is my only wish.”
~Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Journey To Happiness

“Happiness is to be found along the way, not at the end of the road, for then the journey is over and it is too late.” ~Robert Updegraff

“The road to happiness lies in two simple principles: find what it is that interests you and that you can do well, and when you find it put your whole soul into it-every bit of energy and ambition and natural ability you have.”
~John D. Rockefeller III

Brick Structures

WILMINGTON HISTORIC & ARCHAEOLOGICAL DISTRICT

“With elegant plantation homes, historic buildings, and numerous attractions, Wilmington’s historic district is one of the most beloved parts of the city. Bound by Wright, S. 7th and Harnett Sts., and the Northeast Cape Fear River, this largely commercial district has been growing since the early 1700s and features a variety of architectural styles as well as underwater archaeological sites.” (Source)

I am a huge fan of history, as well as brick structures. Wilmington, at one time, was home of the Masons and you can see much of their handiwork in the historical district’s architecture. This water front city has amazing sights to see, a stroll through the streets does not disappoint. If you visit you are bound to see a touring horse drawn trolly. There is also a tour from the water on a tug boat that is offered. Lots of great sights, free offerings, as well as shopping and food. You will find Wilmington is an easy hour and half drive north, from Myrtle Beach, SC.

We Go Together

We go together like PB and J
We go together just this way

We go together like one and two
We go together just me and you

We go together like sand and seas
We go together a pod with two peas

We go together like here and there
We go together like a matchless pair

We go together like coffee and cream
We go together like love in a dream

We go together like a perfect rhyme
And we’ll go together for a lifetime

Because…
I am yours and you are mine©
