The Wharf

July 4, 2014 Categories: Blog







Water slapped lightly against the pilings and mingled beyond. The beginnings of an outgoing tide stirred an aquatic parade below. Most of the crabs and starfish would hide amongst the weeds, while other fish seemed eager to sun bathe or follow the high water.

This dance took place twice a day as the harbor basin freshened with the flow of the ocean. On a hot summer days, this tiny miracle was fun to sit and watch. It is one of the many things that brought me here to the Steamer Wharf.

“Route 52” (Florida 2014)

Categories: Blog


About a year ago I happened across a conversation around the water cooler, where a dad was worried about his son heading off with friends to see a concert in another city. As I listened, I realized how emotional and stressed this group had become regarding this youthful outing.
