Weekly Words Challenge

It's that time of week again. You know that day of the week when Tink gives us 2 words to interpret in photos. The event we like to call the WWC.

This week's words are Primitive and Modern. And I admit my pictures are from the archives this week. Not because of laziness, but because I knew I had the perfect photos already.

Every summer we visit a Florida beach town for a week long family vacation. 2 years ago I found this great secluded island on the south west coast to rent a house. North Captiva is a little island only accessible by boat, or if you are loaded, private plane. 2 summers earlier in 2004, Hurricane Charley wreaked havoc on the south beach of the island, and literally cut the tip of the island off. The only way to see "Charely's Pass" was walk the two miles down the conservation area of beach. We figured we could do that. Nobody told us, there had been virtually no clean up of that uninhabited section of beach. We climbed over, slid under, hiked through the brush and in the worst spots swam out in the ocean around all the fallen trees. In this case the journey was indeed as amazing as the destination.

Great Pics Karen.
I still have yet to visit Captiva. I only live about 1 1/2 hours away..such a shame that Charley did so much damage to such a gorgeous place.
I love all the driftwood, They are the wood version of sea glass...gorgeous.

Gorgeous pictures, Karen! I love the white washed trees on the beach. We call them whale bones. It's nice when Mother natures fury makes something beautiful.

Btw, I just realized that I have your blog down as "For The Love Of Peter" in my master blog list, which cracks me up for some reason. So I'm going to leave it. Lol.
