Asheville has held a special place in my heart since I first saw it during a motorcycle trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway about 20 years ago. Bayou Renaissance Man has an excellent blog, and often finds great videos--this one is no exception. I would not mind having a small place somewhere around Asheville.

Rockport Hummer Bird Celebration

Note: several of the photos are not showing the full picture in the preview, so click the first picture and you'll be able to scroll through the full view of all of them.

Amy and I took her mother to Rockport for the Hummer Bird Celebration again this year. The birds weren't cooperating as much as last year, and the feeders were not packed.

We did spend some time at the raptor display and I worked on my artistic photography...

"Dude, does this taste funny to you?"
