Take time to see the beauty.....

While I am gone traveling again, I would like to leave you with some photos I took at Floyd Lamb Park a while ago....


Floyd Lamp Park is just 15 minutes drive from our place, we love going there for a walk


Inside Floyd Lamb Park, visitors can explore Tule Spring Ranch


Believe it or not, in the 1920s Tule Spring Ranch was set up for prospective divorcees, whom took advantage of Nevada's changing divorce law, guests would wait out the 6 weeks residency requirement to file papers. That was the shortest waiting period in the country.


The ranch became a resort area and was glamorized by divorce-minded movie starts



can you imagine the swimming pool was once here


today, Floyd Lamb Park belongs to the city of Las Vegas

(I am playing with this photo a bit with ippcy)


in the park is that famous white peacock


up the roof he went....


to find his other friend....


oh what a sight....



other cuties in the park...


Did you take time 

to 

see 

the beauty around you today?



and 

Movie we watched over the weekends


a sweet and touching one!!!!


thanks for stopping by, I am on the road again, will visit you when I get home.....

for now, happy crafting!!!!

Isn't it wonderful to practically have these views in your backyard? If only we would all see the beauty in things, there's so much out there!
