A Break from Winter Pics

Hi Blogging Friends,
The cold has settled in here in NC , at least for the moment. Last week we had  two 70 degree days , but that is not good news.Here when that happens we are in danger of high winds & winter tornadoes .As a result of the high winds last week, the gazebo in my front yard was taken out by some tree limbs . I am glad that was all that was damaged.
For a break form the winter weather,I am traveling back in pics to last summer Back to the Beach.This is  part of the trip pics  to one of the NC Aquariums. Of course I'll start out with a beach pic to get you in the mood .

We have 4 Aquarium sites in NC. this is the Aquarium at Pine  Knoll Shores.

My post today will future one  aspect of the Aquarium ,
 which is also a winter theme and that is Penguins! This was a very giant one out

On the way in I  snapped some flower shots . This daisy grows like grass all over all of our Outer Banks .

Oh, these are not flowers , but they are orange .lol

The exhibit featured 4 endangered African Penguins . The Aquarium hosted the penguins from May to September of 2012.They raised awareness about them and collected donations for their conservation.They were fun to watch and I  didn't know there were penguins in Africa.

Two sunset pics taken on the road ,
 on the way home from the Beach .

I will you these wonderful Bible Verses:
"Praise the Lord,my soul; All my inmost being ,praise His Holy Name.Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's."
 Psalm 103:1-5
