The Journey

I expect incredibly vibrant sunrise shots and mirrored reflections of the Seven Seas Lagoon; but some of my more memorable moments come from unexpected sights and sounds encountered along the way.

Berryman Place

“…Berryman Place….As an impressionable nine year old, I was relieved that it wasn’t “Bury man Place”.

Between the Lines
