Here's my Saturday post!

Hi there readers,

If you visited yesterday you will have seen some of my recent vacation pix ... It's not that I took so very many pix but I did take more than I felt appropriate to share with you all in one post. So, here are some more .... ENJOY

Canova Park Beach
Yes, they allow dogs but in restricted areas
Port Canaveral and a small selection of pelicans!
If you look carefully you can see the dolphin
We dined here and, no, we did NOT have the shark kabobs!
And now, since a day without crafting is like a day when it doesn't stop raining ... something to remind you of summer!

This is so pretty and perfect for the LIM Challenge Kathy and thank you for showing us some more beautiful photos of Florida and I adore the pelicans. We saw quite a few in Australia the last time we went to visit our son. x

I must say I had to go through your vacation photos very fast because I became so envious!! Looks amazing! So does your card for our challenge. The colored frames add a lot of interest and yet your car is very CAS because of all that lovely white space. Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!
