Delta Lake State Park

Another beautiful evening and another trip to Delta Lake State Park. Mother Nature must have heard my complaining about the boring sky on Monday because she definitely dialed the sky up a few notches. I knew exactly the view I wanted to capture. There is a fallen tree on the right side of the beach area that was going to provide a frame for the sunset as well as interesting reflections. I was not disappointed!

Autumn Beginning

Green Lakes State Park

I left work a little early yesterday. Isn’t Friday supposed to be the slide into the weekend day? It isn’t supposed to be the every problem surfaces today day. Anyway, as I neared the eight hour mark of working I decided I would call it a day and stop at Green Lakes State Park on my way home. So worth it!

The timing is a little early for full autumn colors but the opportunity to walk the trail around lake picked up my mood. There were a lot of people that shared my plan for a warm Friday afternoon. Typically I am at these parks before sunrise and other people show up. It didn’t affect my enjoyment at all. I realized it was the first time I walked the entire loop around the lake. It is a nice trail with plenty of spots to view the lake. In a week or two the leaves will be perfect…

Beach Club Light

Beach Club Resort, Crescent Lake, Walt Disney World

Is it nostalgia or pining? Returning to the images I captured at Walt Disney World in May for this morning’s post. The 50th anniversary of the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World is right around the corner (October 1st). I guess it is a little of both…

If it was truly nostalgia then this post would be of Cinderella Castle. Maybe that one will be next?

Pining it is. I would love to be in the Magic Kingdom for the anniversary but my love/hate relationship with Walt Disney World is leaning toward the hate side right now. I know, a strong word, but that is how it feels. There are numerous reasons but I will not bore you with those… you’re welcome. Wait, I think it is reminiscing? Yep, that seems to be it.

Right now I can enjoy the early morning view of the Beach Club. This is one of my favorite times of the day. Well before most guests wake. When it is only me running around the lake capturing the views, enjoying the peace and quiet.

Lost in Reflection

Delta Lake State Park
Haiku

I am me. I know who I am. I didn’t always. Why does it take so long to find out? Does it for everybody? Surfing the waves of my memory I can point to events that forged the earlier version of me. Would changing those events make me different now. Probably. Would I want to… no. I am me.
