Today is my last Try Day at Create a Connection. This week our family went on a short camping trip for our kids' Spring Break. We used to live in the Florida Panhandle, and were eager to take the children to some places we used to like to visit.

We didn't go all the way west to Panama City (where we lived for two years) and beyond, but we did visit Cape San Blas (where Erik worked for six months collecting sea turtle nesting data) and Appalachicola. We camped at two different state parks as well.

While at Cape San Blas, I enjoyed watching the kids jump in the surf. As we meandered down the beach I took my time noticing all of the amazing patterns in nature. I found so many wonderful small details to look at.

These pictures are so cool! I often take pictures of nature thinking I will use them for backgrounds in my art work. I have done this, but not as often as I would like. thanks for inspiring to look closer!
