So many of you have told me since I’ve been blogging how much you enjoy my photos. I had noticed on our way down here that something was wrong with the pictures I was taking. When I started in the photo club here, I also observed that I was getting an E:6210 error message. I followed several suggestions the facilitator gave me, and someone else tried to help, but to no avail. Last week I took my camera to a camera shop someone in the club had recommended and learned that it had to do with the stabilization in my lens and would cost a minimum of $233 to fix it. No can do!
Mark has a Fujifilm camera that he’s been using for the photo club, so I asked him if I could borrow it. I tried figuring out how to use it. It’s certainly different from my old Sony Cybershot, but I managed to get some decent pictures. Our club assignment the last few weeks has been to take pictures that depict the lifestyle around here. I thought you all might be interested in seeing some of the shots both Mark and I have taken over the last few weeks:
Randy Saffles, the facilitator/teacher of our photo club.
This was the Honor Guard pancake breakfast in Woodland Hall.
This is a line dancing class, also in Woodland Hall.
This is a brand new (just got his license) chiropractor working on Mark in the Wellness Center (taken with my poor old camera).
There’s a new craze called Live O2 where you exercise while breathing in pure oxygen. I heard one man come out saying he had just accomplished in a few minutes what it would have taken him an hour and a half to accomplish in the gym. Not quite sure what he meant.
This is the Wellness Center from on top of the water slide tower. I had to get special permission to climb up there!
The outdoor pool, also from the top of the water slide tower.
This bird nest was actually the reason I climbed the water slide steps. It’s an osprey nest on the top of a telephone pole across the street from Sun N Fun.
This is a strange looking bird I photographed on Lake Ibis. Anyone have a clue what it is?
One of the park models on Lake Ibis, which is a man-made lake in the resort.
A woman named Becky I found waiting for her husband who was fishing in Lake Ibis. She told me he’d recently seen an alligator come up near him at the lake.
Besides golf carts, the next most popular vehicle around Sun N Fun is bicycles. Car use is mostly reserved for outside the park.
I noticed this on my way home from my photo shoot!
Peggy is my neighbor lady. The other day I found her pulling the visqueen screens out of their rails on her lanai so she could pull the old visqueen out and install some she’d bought at Home Depot. She’s always busy doing something!
I thought we had a big influx of people in January, but we are bursting at the seams now that February is here. Housekeeping is down a couple staff members so we are all hustling to keep up. Pray for the staff here, especially our boss, Mary Beth. She needs divine guidance in finding good help!
