At the Pier by the Harbor in Ocean Springs

Today, we went to Aunt Jenny's Restaurant to celebrate the birthday of my sister-in-law. Hubby and I went to this place about 4 years ago and we thought the food was not that great. Today made no difference. Still, we enjoyed the gathering because we wanted to be around on her birthday. After dinner, we went to the pier by the Harbor in Ocean Springs at the Front Beach and just hang out by the pier. Check out the view that I took. More to publish soon ... so, I will see you around right?

Walking on the Bay Bridge : Biloxi and Ocean Springs

I don't know how to start really. When we sold the house in the Space Coast area in Florida, we were too busy packing, moving, follow up with the papers, moving to another state, looking for a house, buying a house, moving our things from one storage to another storage, moving to our new house, unpacking, arranging, selling one of our condo property, fly back to Florida, back to Mississippi, party for my birthday, surprise visit from Spain and now ... here I am, ready to get back on track. Wheww! It was a whirlwind huh? I took a lot of pictures since May and I will be sharing them in this blog.

The first time we drove on the Bay Bridge heading to Palace Casino Resort in Biloxi, Mississippi, I said to my husband, "I didn't know how I missed the gulf coast". How pretty this place is. That's the resort and we stayed there for a week since we were still waiting for the closing of the house we bought.

The photo above was taken at the Front Beach in Ocean Springs Mississippi. The building at the far end is the Golden Nugget Casino formerly, the Isle Casino. Since we were back here in May, I walked on the bridge and rode a bicycle on that long bay bridge. Oh my goodness, I did it! I was so happy and felt accomplished! Now, who wouldn't fell in love on this view everyday of their lives? I would!

One evening right before sunset, a cousin and I went to walk by the beach and on the bridge from Ocean Springs to Biloxi (one city to the other city). We started at 6PM and hubby picked us up at 8PM in Golden Nugget at the end of the bridge. I thought I couldn't do it you know. It was a long ways. The view from the bay bridge was fantastic and breathtaking so; it has kept me going to the end. There were sailboats and shrimp boats as well as occasional display of dolphins swimming visibly by the bay. It was a glorious evening and I will be walking/running on the bridge again sometime.

While walking on the beach, cousin and I played on the sand. We put a mark on the sand with our foot. My footprint is smaller than her even though I am so much older than her. We spent probably almost an hour by the beach before we decided to walk on the bridge.

While on the Front Beach, I snap a lot of pictures.

Pictures of the sky, sailboats, people, dogs, shrimp boats, and anything interesting on the sand.

Here she is making a heart shape figure.

As the sun sets on the horizon, we were halfway walking on the bridge. It was breezy and a nice evening. I had fun taking pictures and enjoying the glorious display of nature.
Thanks for reading my post. See you next time.

#Autoparts Search

I was directed to the billet grilles when I tried searching for outdoor parts of our Buick Rendezvous. Unluckily, I can't find the image of the parts that I need and I also do not know the name of the parts that I am looking for. Meanwhile, as I was browsing, I found some parts that we wanted to add on to our vehicle which is really good you know. Are you searching to buy #autoparts? For sure, you will find the parts that you are looking for especially if your car is a newer model. Go and check it out.

The #SpaceShuttle #Atlantis Attraction in #KennedySpaceCenter

The excitement of seeing the Space Shuttle Atlantis up-close is so unreal. The Atlantis is a space shuttle orbiter. It's first flight was in October of 1985 carrying a payload for the US Department of Defense. In July 8, 2011, Atlantis made it's final mission before it retired and made Florida it's final home at the Kennedy Space Center. It made 33 missions and was able to deploy 14 satellites.

Watch out next week for more photos of the inside look of Atlantis.
Atlantis is my favorite attraction at the Kennedy Space Center.


This Spring break, you should visit the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It's about an hour drive from Orlando. I can assure you that you will be delighted to be here. I will be seeing you in Florida soon.

Adventure Is Calling - Is Your Vehicle Ready?

It is important to have a reliable source of information for whatever is bothering you. The Internet for all of its ability to deliver information is neither reliable nor what you are looking for when it comes to questions that relate specifically to you. It is a good starting point, but once you need to start describing sounds, it becomes a bit more complicated. If you are looking for information on Land Rovers, you might want to visit a site like www.pdxbritish.com. Because they specialize in servicing Land Rovers and you can get them on the phone, you will be more likely to have your question answered as it relates specifically to you rather than in a generality.

Your Vehicle and You

For Americans, a car is more than a mode of transportation. It is an expression of freedom and who the person is. It is a friend. It is a trusted companion that is sometimes more valued than a significant other. Some people spend more time with their cars than with their friends, family, or job. While this level of obsession does not exist in every American, even a small scratch to the paint job can elicit an overblown response from many Americans. Whether or not you fall into this category, it is good to know that there are mechanics that specialize in what you drive. It is the specialization that allows them to treat your vehicle the way it should be treated.

Roam If You Want to

Your vehicle is important to your ability to go when you want to go and do what you want to do. If Americans had to rely on public transportation, no one would be able to get to work, much less visit family in the next town over. Fortunately, there are places like http://pdxbritish.com that can make sure your Land Rover is ready for your next adventure. Even if that adventure doesn't include hordes of zombies, Sherpas on Everest, or snakes in the Temple of Doom. Get your vehicle maintained, grab your hat, and head out for the trail like your ancestors.

Blooms Inside the Tinker Bell's Butterfly Garden

Our visit to EPCOT in Disney World was just done in few hours. We wanted to stick to the plan: take three rides, stay in Future World and take photos in few areas there and the entrance. I tell you what, we were roaming about 30% in Future World areas. Yes, there is so much to see around but, since we have a pass holder, we are not in a hurry. We can comeback anytime. I already posted few photos of the topiary display in EPCOT as well as the fairy houses display. I still have more photo's to share though and for now, these are the flowers found in Tinker Bell's Butterfly garden.
This is one of my favorites. The blooms just explode.
I am not sure if this belongs to sunflower family.
Here's another color.
I like this too, it's like a scepter.
This is pretty too in fact, I got this one in my garden one time.
Here is Tinker Bell standing at the side exit/entrance of the garden.
This flower is my most favorite.
Very Pretty
This flower is nice too.
I think this flower is called Everlasting.
This is another color of everlasting flower.

That's all for now. What do you think?

#ButterflyTopiary : International Flower and Garden Festival in EPCOT

My husband and I were at EPCOT in #DisneyWorld last Thursday to see the #InternationalFlowerandGardenFestival which is presented by #HGTV. My goodness, fun is in bloom indeed. We love taking the monorail because it is really cool to see part of EPCOT up above the monorail tracks. The first blooms that I saw was the garden near the Tinker Bell's Butterfly Garden. It was so colorful and the Disney Character topiaries are gigantic so it was beautiful and visible up above.

We decided to stay in Future World and take 3 rides. I already reserved my fast pass online but, since hubby can't get his fast pass, we took the standby. We won't be long anyway coz we get tired from walking around so; I  told hubby that we will stay in Future World and take the photos of Topiaries and the garden display at the entrance. We will be back next time before the festival ends.

As we were walking towards the Tinker Bells's Butterfly Garden, this giant Butterfly Topiary caught my eyes. Such a gorgeous display don't you think? There are over a 100 topiary displays in Epcot. Some topiaries are favorite Disney Characters and some are seasonal topiaries so; every year is truly different. We did not go to World Showcase.

It is spring break so; it is super crowded in Disney World.  All the rides have 30 to 80 minutes stand by , crazy right? If you plan to visit Disney World, get your ticket ahead of time and reserve your fast pass online or on your cellphone.  You save time and your energy will not be wasted with the queue. With our case, it is alright because we have a yearly pass and we can visit anytime on weekdays and in any parks. We can take the standby of 30 max. When we went to Soarin' Attraction, the wait time is 80 minutes LOL. We did not go. We took the Land instead and it was pretty interesting.

The Amazing topiary displays are in the World Showcase area. I will take photos of the topiaries in that area on our next visit. I really wanted to go there alone though LOL. My husband hates to walk from pavilion to pavilion. Goodness! LOL!

Yep, for now , I am sharing this butterfly display.  I took more photos inside the Tinker Bell's butterfly garden. If you love flowers, I use the zoom feature of my camera phone and take photos to some blooms and the flowers are all pretty.

I hope you enjoyed viewing the butterfly display. Do you think you can you make this art work in your garden? Thanks for stopping by. Come back tomorrow for another exciting and interesting photos. have a great day!
