BroJoe is fascinated by Utah. He’s been several times now and has posted some lovely photos of the area on Facebook. In fact, that is how I found out he was IN Utah this time. It’s easy to see why the area is called The Red Desert.
He seems especially captivated by the petroglyphs and pictographs found all around the Moab area and has sent me a number of photographs of the centuries-old drawings. As he is a man of few words, I am thrilled to hear from him, even via prehistoric rock art.
I have studied the images carefully and the message I am receiving is, “Look, Sis! No squirrels!”

Nope, that isn’t BroJoe’s thumb, it’s “the bite” of the lunar eclipse from the vantage point of the Hawk’s Nest, Pea Island Wildlife Refuge.
“The bite”. . . the Blood Moon. . . the graveyard of Atlantic. . . October.
Sounds positively vampirish, doesn’t it.
Sea turtles often lay their eggs along the beach areas of The Outer Banks. The (five) species have become endangered, mostly because of human activity. Consequently, several groups and organizations have stepped up efforts to take care of injured or sick sea turtles and to locate, protect, and monitor the fragile nest sites.
No sunrise photo from BroJoe in the last couple of days.
Just this one picture, which may have been sent by way of explanation. . .
I need an ingredients list. What is IN that thing?
Jennette’s Pier, on the Outer Banks at Nags Head, has a surprisingly interesting history. It’s now part of the North Carolina Aquariums division of the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources. A couple of webcams show the weather activity there. (Check them out on a stormy day. Yikes!)
Besides the marine activity, it’s also a site for other events, including weddings That third floor offers a striking reception area. BroJoe’s photos of the place at dawn are pretty enough to make me wonder if anyone has ever had a sunrise wedding there.

Looks like the perfect weekend to catch a few!
