I looked at my sitemeter today and discovered that sometime tonight or tomorrow I will surpass the 50,000 mark on my blog.
That means that 50,000 times, people have stopped by to look at the beauty of Pensacola Beach. Fifty thousand times someone realized what an incredible destination Pensacola Beach would be for them or their family.
A few thousand times, I hope, the importance of caring for our natural resources - parks and seashores and waters - crossed someone's mind.
A few hundred times someone must have realized this is the place they want to call home.
A few times, perhaps, I've taught someone to look in a different direction other than straight ahead. There are wonders all around, we just have to open our hearts and feel the magic that surrounds us.
I have made friends thousands of miles away through this little blog, and friends right here at home. Someone gave me a lovely compliment yesterday by saying I had inspired them to pick up the camera and begin to capture the beauty surrounding them on the island. That is the ultimate compliment for someone like me. Capture today; share it with tomorrow.
Thank you all for visiting my blog. I hope I will be here for many years to come, sharing my photos of this beautiful island with you.
