Boats, Birds, Butterflies & Blooms ...

Summer Vacation has "officially" begun ...
We took a 2 hr cruise ...
and enjoyed the views from a 100 year old vessel ...
when we stepped off the ferry, we stopped for lunch, then walked around the island and
took LOTS of photos :-)
So occupied in sipping up the moisture from the Butterfly bush
I was able to take many photos of the Red Admiral Butterfly .
Then the Red Spotted Purple landed on the hydrangea...
Such a pretty butterfly ...
and beautiful gardens ...
"Just living is not enough" said the butterfly
"One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower"
~Hans Christian Anderson~
Happy August!
