Vintage Pirates of the Caribbean slides. These are from the original “Lust” staging, where the pirates were seeking another form of booty. Via Disney Pix.
This is so my childhood. And my adulthood. “Here kitty kitty kitty” “don’t beee schicken, Carlos!” “Yo ho, yo ho, a pirates life for me”
Posting this here for Throwback Thursday. My favorite ride at Disneyland when I was 5 years old was Pirates of the Caribbean. And it is still my favorite ride there today. I love seeing these vintage photos though… THIS is how I remember it. Man I thought those people were real. ~Aimee~
A Girls Best Friend
This could very well be a picture of me when I was that age. When I was 2 years old, my parents got a German Shepherd puppy who was 1. We grew up together. Her name was Chinook, and she was the best friend/nanny/partner in crime that any girl could ever want. I adore this photograph. ~Aimee~
Good morning, from my back yard! ~Aimee~
Springtime blossoms are in full bloom! Apple, pear and cherry. It smells heavenly. ~Aimee~
My new collage! A wee little hedgehog… ~Aimee~

The world is full of amazing children. Sometimes, we just have to take a moment to recognize one. Today, that child is is Ashol-Pan, a 13-year-old Mongolian girl who carries on her culture’s tradition of hunting with a golden eagle. She may just be the only girl on the planet with this very unique skill.
Check out photographer Asher Svidensky’s jaw-dropping images of her on BBC News Magazine: http://uni.cf/1mcT252
Surreal Photos of A Frozen Venice
Art director Robert Jahns has created a series of surrealistic photos of Venice by combining photos of Italy by Luis Manuel Osorio Fernando with photos of frozen lakes in Russia by Daniel Kordan. Robert Jahns wanted to show how the Venice Canal would look like if it was frozen by the winter.
enchantedengland: This is definitely England, I know it. It makes me think of St James’s Park in London.
Stayed up to see the blood moon, but all I got was band-aid clouds. They cleared up early this morning though, and I was able to see this moonset just before it disappeared behind the Cascade mountain range. So pretty! ~Aimee~
