Back to business!
First of all, let me thank all the blog followers who sent me such lovely notes during my absence. In the last couple months of 2010 I really got caught up in my work as a Wildlife Observer for the beach clean-up efforts. Once the 'Sand Shark' operation was shifted from Pensacola Beach to Perdido Key, Wildlife Observers were also transferred to that location.
The change in location meant I had to leave Pensacola Beach around 4:00 p.m. to reach Perdido Key for the 5:00 p.m. - 5:00 a.m. work shift. The next morning, it was difficult driving home and getting to bed just as the sun was coming up. Most of us Wildlife Observers discovered we were rarely able to sleep past noon. That only left a few hours before time to head out for the next shift. Let me assure you, sleep deprivation is NOT good for your body or your brain!
My work as a Wildlife Observer for BP's subcontractors ended in the last half of December. So, now that I've had time to celebrate the holidays in Tennessee, take a cruise with my husband, and also get my sleeping cycle back to normal, it's time to get back to my other passion: photography and blogging!
I would like to thank all of you who have been so faithful during my absence and, again, all those of you who have taken time to write. I realized, despite this brutally cold weather we've been having, it was time to get off my duff and back to business when someone went one step further and wrote the editor of Island Times to check on me! That's blog loyalty!
So here we go...back to business in Paradise!
