Being from the Midwest and securely landlocked I always found that seeing large water creatures of any kind from shore was always fascinating.

I remember seeing my first huge marlin from a bridge in Key West and another huge shark fin (I don't know what type) off the coast of Northern California.

Those sightings always stay with me.

Understood & agreed, Preppy. Growing up in Missouri was a big part of my decision to join the Navy. I wanted to see a body of water bigger than Lake Taneycomo.

Rev. Paul,

Gorgeous pictures! Beautiful countryside.

Rev. Paul said...

I agree, Sandy - God does good work!

For a mid-Ohio gal . . . the scale of that first photo is breath-taking. A mile and a half view of rolling soybean fields is as 'spectacular' as we get.

The vistas here are mind-blowing, Cathy. I know what you mean.
