Made it to Florida, and a Challenge Accepted

“My parents didn’t want to move to Florida, but they turned sixty and that’s the law.”

Jerry Seinfeld 

We rolled into Florida 10 minutes after we left our campsite in Alabama.  Six hours later, we pulled into Recreation Plantation in Lady Lake.  That’s one of the strange things about entering the state on the western end of the panhandle:  it is hundreds of miles of driving east before even getting to I-75 to begin the southern descent down the Florida penninsula.  We will be here for three days visiting with family and friends.  More on that tomorrow.

About the challenge:

I was invited by Rob at Rockiesoutdoors to take part in a five day black and white photo challenge.

  

 

So for day 1 of the challenge I’ve chosen a photo I took a few summers ago of Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse in Mackinaw City, Michigan.  What makes this lighthouse special to me is that my great-grandfather, John Peter Schmitt, built it in 1892.  I was on a State of Michigan fundraising committee a decade ago to get it reopened to the public.  We succeeded!

As part of the challenge I am to nominate a fellow blogger each of the five days to join in and take part. So today I nominate Debbie from Down The Road.  Debbie and Steve visit amazing places in their travels as fulltime RVers, and they know how to find the best each location has to offer.

The only rules of the challenge are:

1. On five consecutive days, create a post using a recent or past photograph in black and white.

2. Invite another blogging friend each day to join in the challenge.

I hope you enjoy my photos, and hopefully Debbie will accept the challenge!

  1. “My parents didn’t want to move to Florida, but they turned sixty and that’s the law.” Love it! I’ve seen a lot if Seinfeld but can’t remember that one.
