Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    What a sad end for an old sea dog!!!! A terrific capture!!! Bill

  • There’s talk of getting volunteers to restore the boat, but I doubt it will happen. It’s in really bad shape. Oh well!!! Thanks for your comment, Bill.
