Remembering

DP Challenge: Heritage

Here two photos of a tombstone (front and back) in Fort Pulaski, Georgia.  Part of our heritage as Americans.

Wars are part of our history.  Civil wars are perhaps the most difficult to understand, since it is a fight among county men.  Sometimes I hear folks trying to adjust history to make it more palatable.  In all its beauty and in all its ugliness, our heritage should be remembered as it happened.  Perhaps if we remember, we will not make the same mistakes.

Remembering our heritage is important.

Careful of the CannonBalls

Daily Post Photo Challenge: Danger

DSC_0116 (2)

Here is a shot of Fort Pulaski in Georgia.  This is the side of the fort that sustained the heaviest cannon fire from the Union Troops.  This damage was ultimately the reason that the fort surrendered during the Civil War.  For me not having experienced war, it is hard to imagine the “danger” that soldiers on both sides experience.  But seeing the pockmarks in a brick structure, makes it more real.

Anyone visiting the Savannah area, Fort Pulaski is truly a worthy side trip.  I hope you can come and see us.

Atop the Fence Post

DP Photo Challenge: Atop

A few days ago this little fellow (a Carolina Anole) was sitting atop the fence post just enjoying the sunshine.  Today he is probably hiding somewhere warm and dreaming about the hot days to come.  Note the weird end of his tail.  If these lizards are threatened, they will allow part of their tail to break off…..I wonder what happened to this poor guy?

Catching a Wish

DP Photo Challenge: Wish

The last couple of months there has been a new fishing/shrimping boat on the river near my home.  The boat is bright aqua and looks so cheerful as it moves through the water.  I know that fishing is a hard job and the days are long.  So here “wishing” the crew of the Jessica Marie safe journeys and  bountiful catches.
