Just Too Pretty To Pass By

In order to keep ahead of the parade, on May Day, so I could take pictures of the FRONT of the my husband as he participated in his first parade, I had to run and cut through side streets.  The problem was that I couldn’t seem to bypass all of the other things that were just too pretty, too pretty for me to pass by without appreciating.   I really had to sprint to get back to the starting point before the parade.  Who knew they would move along so fast?

With rain having fallen heavily most of the day, the light was gorgeous when the clouds finally went out to sea.  Here is a sample of a few of the wonderful things I saw.  I also saw sea-gulls, churches, sky, more sky, clouds, beautiful people, interesting people, children, other buildings, more plants, gorgeous trees …. but I missed most of the parade by staying in front of it.  I did get photos of groups forming up to march, but sixty out of the seventy, or so, group participants were behind the veterans.

These photos are from Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, Florida.

MAY DAY  .  MAY DAY  .  MAY DAY
“It is used to signal a life-threatening emergency primarily by mariners and aviators, but in some countries local organisations such as police forces, firefighters, and transportation organizations also use the term. The call is always given three times in a row (“Mayday Mayday Mayday”) to prevent mistaking it for some similar-sounding phrase under noisy conditions, and to distinguish an actual Mayday call from a message about a Mayday call.”
