Come take a stroll with me...

It was a glorious day so I thought I would invite you to take a stroll through our lovely town. We'll start at the antique shop where camillias grace a cut glass bowl amongst crystal treasures.


The camillias are in full bloom all over town and make beautiful arrangments.

The camillia bush outside the shop displaying her graceful blooms.

Live oak trees and palmettos stand tall against the blue sky.

The water is calm as we stroll down the tabby walkway.

Let's sit a spell and swing while we enjoy the water views.

A colorful flower box in front of a local shop.

The water sparkles beneath a sunny sky.

Trees shadow the sidewalk.

How about taking in a view of the water from Cannon Park?

Ancient Tabby seawall shadowed by a live oak tree.

The sun peeking through the dangling oak branches.

Sea grasses billow in the tide while the water sparkles like diamonds.

An old iron gate welcomes passersby.

I can't resist snapping some photos from this c. 1909 home that is uninhabited.

View of Cannon Park from the porch of the old mansion.

Over grown vines attest to the homes' empty state.

I suppose we should be heading back now. Thanks for joining me on my little stroll:)

What a lovely day for a stroll. Too many times we are too busy to stop and notice the beauty that surrounds us. Thanks for taking the pictures and sharing them with us.

Thank you for having me along for your walk! What a lovely stroll it was! You live in a beautiful area.

I am still drooling over the beautiful pink teacup and saucer with the "lacy" edge in the first photo on your last post! Gorgeous!

THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR WALK. IT IS SO NICE TO SEE FLOWERS SINCE WE'VE BEEN KNEE DEEP IN SNOW ALL WINTER HERE IN THE MIDWEST.

What a lovely stroll you must have had. I enjoyed seeing your wonderful place, very tranquil.

I loved the Camellia's, the pink flowers are so pretty.
The 1909 home that is uninhabited
really caught my eye - I love old houses and wouldn't it be lovely to have it transformed to it's former glory.

Hugs

Ah... that was a nice walk. I needed the exercise! I have been cooped up all day reading in preparation for an exam! Still in school...once a teacher, always a student! You live in a lovely part of the country! Thanks for your uplifting comments on my post. Bless you! Anita

What a lovely tour guide you are. The walk was simply refreshing and the flowers smelled delightful!

I love the old home...it needs a new owner to care for it. I love the view from the front veranda...

Your pictures were beautiful.

Thank you!

How sad that the old mansion is empty? Is it state owned? What's the history of it? Looks like it is beautiful...Great pictures...Hugzzz...Tiina...

Thank you for the tour. It was refreshing. Are you in Florida? I know we here in Connecticut are not seeing flowers in bloom. Good for you!

Oooohhh...an empty old house? (sigh) Every time I see something like that, it makes me wish I could buy it and live there. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos! ~Lori
