I’m back home for a few weeks, after two weeks in St. Pete.  We saw this rainbow on the interstate between the Airport and our house.  I took this with my phone, through the windshield. Not too bad for a non-iPhone!



Memorial Day

Pass-A-Grille Beach this morning….

Capitol Market

I love the Capitol Market!  Our farmers market is housed in an old train station and is open year round.  Inside the train station are restaurants, meat and fish counters, a coffee bar and a year round produce shop.  Oh, but from April to November the outside is a destination.  When you have nothing to do, just go to the Capitol Market!

Summer produce arrives in mid-July.  




When the temperatures drop, the fall colors show up.

Let’s Go!

The Day finally arrived!!

The Central Avenue Overpass was dedicated this morning.  It was closed in August for repairs (actually it was re-built from the concrete pillars up).  The ribbon was cut by the Mayor, Congresswoman Capito, the head of the Department of Highways, City workers and City council members. 

Central Ave Bridge 039


What a beautiful sight for detour weary residents.

Central Ave Bridge 238


This 1960 Corvair was among the first cars to cross the bridge.   It seemed fit, since the original bridge was built in the 60’s, this car could have actually crossed over the old bridge at it’s dedication!!

Central Ave Bridge 237

May Theme: Surfaces

This is a VERY Important surface to finally have back in use.  Our Central Avenue Overpass was opened last night!!  This bridge connects the residential “Hill Section” of South Charleston to the downtown business district.  It’s been closed for 8 months.

Central Ave Bridge 015


What a beautiful sight that is!!  It was one of those situations where you just couldn’t get there from here.   On Monday we are holding a dedication ceremony and the bridge will close for half an hour for folks to walk across it.  Yes, we do it right here in South Charleston!!

Theme: Droplets

This poor bike was having a bad morning. 



April Theme – Angles

I stepped outside this morning and noticed a perfect shadow of our satellite dish on the neighbors chimney and I thought- now that’s sort of unique!
