A View From Above

Good morning!  Happy Friday!! Yay! The weekend is in sight!  We have a couple fun things on the agenda and there is a possibility we might put our boat in the water with the temperatures in the 80s this weekend!  We shall see! 

————————————————————————

As I was organizing my pictures, I found a bunch that we took from our drone over the last couple months and thought it would be fun to show you guys!  

This was taken in Nashville over the holidays at my dad’s house.

These pictures were taken from the beach at Gasparilla Island.

I was the picture taker (the drone connects to your ipad or iphone so you can take pictures from above) and my husband controlled the drone.

For some reason, he won’t let me control the drone…

You can see how narrow the island is with water surrounding both sides.

It was too cold to get in the water, but we enjoyed looking at it. 🙂

Can’t wait to see the beach again in May (not the same one)!

The title of my post really makes me think about the importance of seeing a situation from different perspectives and other peoples’ eyes.   Sometimes it is important to take a step back to be able to really see the whole situation without a narrow view.  I am definitely guilty of seeing things as black or white instead of somewhere in the middle.  Does that make sense?  I think it is all about the perspective you take and the more you open your eyes (and heart), the more you can understand others and where they are coming from.  This thought is not related to a particular situation, just something that came to mind when I titled this blog post.  

Time to get to work!  I hope you guys have a fantastic Friday and an amazing weekend!! 

Questions:

  1. What are you doing this weekend?
  2. What is the weather like where you are right now?
  3. Any plans to go to the beach soon?
