This was one of my favorite spots to watch birds and think. It is totally destroyed now after IKE. It was underwater from the storm surge. I am so glad I still have this memory of it.

How wonderful that you got such a great
capture of this Bill to remember it by.
I never take my photos for granted!
I know you don't either! I remember this
the sky and the water are so beautiful
and it looks like a great place to clear
one's head!! I'm sorry it's gone, but
that just means you'll be finding a new
place to reflect and think!!~Bev~ #6603713

Sad to hear IKE did that beautiful pier in :P I see you are using a G9 too. I like it when I want to stroll around without lugging heavy pro gear. I just uploaded a photo of a fellow BP photographer, having used the G9 with fill flash. It's an amazing little camera I think. #6612199
