After they leave

Clementon Park is located in Clementon, New Jersey and has been around since 1907. It is not big like the Six Flags amusement parks but it is great for the local community.

There is a different feel to the park when there are no children running around and having the time of their lives.

WP Photo Challenge: Happy Place

Besides visiting family and friends my happy place(s) are many.  My recent trip to see the Statue of Liberty was a happy place to be.  I enjoy visiting new places both popular tourist attractions and local favorites.

My all time favorite place to be is the beach watching the sunrise and seeing its golden glow on the beach and sand.

Almost at the end

I took a walk at one of the local lakes saturday and you  can see that summer is almost over.  It seems that Mother Nature is trying to rush the next season.  Although the temperature reached 91 degrees with full humidity today I could feel and see that there is a change coming.  Autumnal equinox will officially begin on September 23.

I do enjoy the fall/autumn season but I am not ready for summer to end.  Due to work schedules and life in general I did not get to explore all that I wanted to.  My to do list just keeps growing.

What season is it where you live?

Up for a Game of H.O.R.S.E.?

Figured that I would step away from all the vacation pictures for now and capture something different.

My employer provides a lot of extra things for its employees to use to unwind after a mentally stressful day.  We have access to pool tables, foosball, gym, walking trails, tennis and basketball courts.  At any given time you can usually find people busy doing something to take their mind off the stress of the day.

For the past few days I have driven past the basketball courts and saw 2 balls that have been left.  Today I decided to pull out the cell phone and capture a few shots.

This brought back memories of being a child playing HORSE with my brothers and the other boys on the street.  I was pretty good!  I felt like I was the only girl on the street since the other 2 girls were much older and rarely played or even came outside.  So if I wanted to play I had to play with the boys.  I was am a true Tomboy.

What was one of your favorite games to play as a child?

In Plain Sight

Have you ever gone to the beach early in the morning and see all the holes in the sand?

All those holes are from crabs.  They are very fast and hard to photograph.   Their shells blend in with the sand.

Do you see the crab in the second picture?

Although these crabs are not “creepy” I am posting for this week’s WP Challenge.

Wall of Water and a Bird

This little bird is oblivious to the fast approaching wall of water that is just seconds away.
