Let’s play.

.

Because it beats actually doing something productive and I’m all about that.

.

Damn.

The last show I watched was Secrets of the Dead… which doesn’t bode well for future scintillating conversations.

Living in the lost city of Baiae is going to be challenging. Located on the northwest shore of the Gulf of Naples, it was basically the sin filled Las Vegas of Ancient Rome.

.

.

I’m sure it was quite something in its day.

.

Home to Nero and all his various perversions, sadly most of the ruins are now underwater.

.

.

Fabulous statuary….

.

.

Villas…

.

.

And mosaics…

.

.

All lost to the sea.

Guess my love of history finally caught up with me. It’s said Julius Caesar visited Baiae… so maybe I can break bread with his ghost. That’s got to be worth a blog or two.

Let’s play!

Your life is now in the last tv show you watched.

And if there are any other history geeks out there? A little more info on my new digs.

Because everyone needs a drink.

 

Bird baths.

They’re not just for birds anymore….

These little guys never used to drink here until an apple tree sprouted in my garden bed a few years ago.

Now they’ve realized they can safely climb onto an overhanging branch and jump in.

Like I do…

Pardon the quality of these shots, but it was dark and I was shooting through a window.

I’ve often wondered why the deer don’t stop to slake their thirst.

Now, I have proof that they do.
