Random Five Friday

Another week, another Friday, another Random Five.

1.) Earlier this month, we were out and about on the evening of the Full Buck Moon. There were clouds, so at times, we could see the entire moon, and other times, just a portion of it.  Motor Man pulled over and took this shot from the car window. He seems to have better luck and definitely more patience than me when it comes to nighttime photography.


2.) I continue to occasionally come upon a fawn as I move about our yard. I’m not sure who’s more surprised when that happens: me or the fawn.  We have three, two are twins, and there’s a single baby who’s smaller.  I think this is the baby of the bunch. Those eyes….

3.) Motor Man and I have begun celebrating those crazy special occasion days. This past week included National Ice Cream Day AND National Hot Dog Day. For the latter, we visited a local “hot dog joint”, The Barking Dog.  Motor Man had seen it mentioned in our local paper, so we thought we’d give it a try. We give it a thumbs up.

4.) On our most recent trip to the Outer Banks, we spotted the little colt, Mateo, born earlier this year.  This week, it was announced that a filly has been born into the herd, and we can’t wait to spot her on a future trip.

5.) We recently went on a tall ship sail out of Yorktown with my niece and her son. Motor Man took this picture of me during the sail. I love that, if you look closely,  you can see his reflection in my sunglasses.

Happy weekend!

  5. I know I say it all the time, but I do love your random photos. The best one in this bunch is of you and MM in your sunglasses. Just shows, he’s always a twinkle in your eye! 😉

  6. Buck Moon – a new one on me. I had to look it up – thanks for teaching me that one. We almost carried a buck home on the hood of our truck Wednesday! Glad we didn’t:) Wonderful pictures, and that’s one beautiful smile you’re showing!
