PhotoHunt: In Memory

Attention PhotoHunters! I received the following email from tnchick at post-time, this morning:

Hey folks! I'm so sorry to report my site isn't allowing me to access it and I do not know why. I've emailed and am waitin'. I've waited up till now (posting time) and still can't get on. Please pass the word for me to those not subscribed to this mailing. I'd appreciate it. The hunt will continue - you'll just have to do it without me this week. If my domain allows me to log in and access it when I wake up - I'll post new thread, then. So sorry - but it's out of my hands. Thanks!

chick

So, let's carry on, shall we?



The PhotoHunt theme this week is "In Memory"

Hmmm... Tough one.

I choose to show you a powerful Memory that I also look forward to repeating:


This is the sun setting over the Gulf of Mexico off of Sarasota, Florida. I shot it with my iPhone last June, on the "Longest Day of the Year".

I spent several languid, blissful days with a few of my friends in Sarasota last year. I literally did absolutely nothing but lay on the beach, swim in the ocean, and share food, drink, and camaraderie. No deadlines, no pressures, no obligations, no sightseeing, nada.

In Memory of one of the most pleasant times, ever. Which I fully intend to repeat this year. I can't wait!

-----------------------------------------------------
They finally fixed the Ile de France website, so if you tried last week to rate my recipes, I apologize. But it's working now! Please click on the links below, and rate my recipes (1-5 stars) - I need your votes! :

Brunch Brie Strata by Rennee (yes, they misspelled it) and Spring Brie Mini-Sub by Renee.

They drop cookies, so if you want to vote more than once from the same computer, you have to clear your cookies and cache. But you've been planning to do that anyway, right? It's good computer hygiene! :-)

Voting will continue through June 2nd, but why wait? Vote early and often! Thanks!

Still having difficulty accessing the site and I was really tired last night so mine is late. I knew this theme would make me cry... but I really like your happy memory too.

Fantastic shot! I love tropical sunsets, this one is great. I have to admit I am drinking a wonderful rum drink while I surf around enjoying everybody's "in Memory" contributions. This picture just seems to go right along with the drink!

Thanks for your great photo and great idea.
