Cahaba River

Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures.

I have always wanted to take a trip out to the Cahaba River National Refuge during the short time the lilies bloom. They only bloom for such a short amount of time just in the month of May, so time is of the essence.

In the past, life was easy to get in the way.. My husband or I would be too busy, tired, or over worked to enjoy the day out.. but thankfully, we are seeing some positives to the new routine.. which allows for more time to do the things we enjoy doing.

The trip there did not disappoint, despite having lost one camera body due to getting wet from the photos in the river.. Thankfully, in year's past, I have made a habit to never bring my best camera gear out in compromising shooting conditions... rather it be overseas and travels or rugged outdoor adventures... and this incident is validation on why.

Despite having lost a camera, I am thankful for some of these images of the day. It was a rewarding time well spent with my husband and our two fur babies as we explored new territory for the both of us.
