A wicked band of thunderstorms provided the entertainment for the journey from Virginia yesterday. Swirling and drenching and crashing and flashing, white knuckles (+ a couple prayers) took me safely home.

Brilliant blues skies and cool, calm breezes today — a pleasant change from a tumultuous start to the weekend.

These photos are from the dock at our seafood shack on the ICW. It’s among the very few “beach” locales we frequent in summer. Worth suffering through the tourist traffic to do so. At least in the early morning, and I look forward to many, many visits in the coming months.

Anything exciting planned for the rest of your weekend? Travelling or staying put, I hope the weather is kind. Take care, and don’t miss all of my favorite links + the HGN updates below.

Cheers, Heather

    Congratulations on your guest post! I did not know that calamari is the term for cooked squid. Zoey and Jasper are adorable. What a fun photography idea to chronicle the lives of your child and pet – if you have willing subjects! Play day in Madison, WI yesterday; work day and a visit to the parents today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
