Kairos Gallery Show
Watercolor students of Dolores Price
had their annual show and sale
at Kairos Gallery this last Friday,
so I got to be involved this year.
We had about 150 or more people for the reception,
and more over the weekend.
There was lots of great food, wine and punch for everyone.
Dolores, shown here, is such a wonderful instructor
and artist. It is great for her to put on this show
for us every year.
Last week I went with my friend Karen to see a
Ridley Turtle release.
It was the greatest thing.
Just made me smile all over!
The Kemp's Ridley sea turtles are making a comeback,
thanks to many people who have found and protected nests.
This day over 80 baby turtles were released.
The eggs are taken to a special place to hatch,
and when they are ready, they are released on the beach,
so they get an imprint to return to the same place.
The closer they got to the water,
the faster they wanted to go. :)
Nets etc. are used to protect the babys from gulls.
Crowds gather at many of the releases,
excited to see the baby turtles head for the water.
Here in this photo, the waves are catching the first little turtles
and taking them out to the Gulf of Mexico.
Everyone clapped and were smiling the whole time. :)
Padre Island National Seashore
protects the longest stretch of undeveloped barrier island in the world.
There is always something spectacular to see here.
Take some time to observe your surroundings,
wherever you may go.
I wish you PEACE....
Savor the Day!
