Tell me that the 6 small branches of my Tree that were hanging over her fence were killing her plants.
The branches were 10 ft off the ground and barely 10" over the fence.

The Guardians of Cramond

Six miles from downtown Edinburgh, Scotland, is a town called Cramond. Cramond Island is located along the Firth of Forth (Firth is a Scots word for Estuary and Forth is the River Forth) and is around half a kilometer long and 19 acres in area, and only accessible via a causeway just in front of Cramond Village.

The most unique feature of Cramond Island is the mile long set of concrete spikes that were built during WWII to stop U-boats from entering the Forth, and to protect the Forth Bridge. During low tide, the spikes are fully exposed, along with a walking path to the island, but when the tide rises, all that's visible are the tips of the spikes. We just so happened to arrive during low tide, so we were able to venture across to the island, which is incredible.

At the outbreak of World War II, Cramond Island, along with other islands in the Forth, was fortified to protect the coasts in the event of enemy warships entering the channel. A number of these buildings remain and can be explored. After crossing the causeway, the first structures are the emplacements for a 75 mm gun and its associated searchlight. More buildings are in the north east corner of the island, which include a variety of stores, shelters and gun emplacements, as well as two engine rooms that once contained all the equipment necessary to supply power to the military installations on the island.

Further along the northern coast, low concrete stumps protrude from the undergrowth, all that remain of the barracks that housed the garrison on the island.

On the western side is a small brick building of unknown purpose. Nearby, perched precariously on the rocky shore is the ruin of a small square building which was used as an ammunition store during the war, though its stone construction suggests it is much older than either World War, possibly contemporary with the farmstead in the middle of the island.

Great shots Shaun. And great info.

Unfortunately, my time in Scotland [back in 2013] was limited to just a couple of days so all I got to see was Edinburgh itself. My buddy was able to spend an extra week exploring but I had commitments back in Canada.

Would love to go back and explore. These looks like a great place to add to the possibilities list. Thanks Shaun.

I'm a closet geek, and a native Floridian. I own a pool cleaning company in Orlando, but have worked most of my life as a licensed financial planner and a real estate broker.

My contributions to Google+

Question of the Day: Every weekday morning, I post a question for my followers. The goal is to start a discussion around a unique topic, and to help others meet new people. 

#TheHunt: In July 2012, I started a monthly photo scavenger hunt to encourage people to snap photos with their mobile phone. The hunt has an amazing following and the group is incredibly inviting. I just started a new page for #TheHunt to help others join in.

#Photospark: Publicly launched in February 2013, Photospark is a photo game that challenges friends to one-up other people's photos. See the launch here.

#DailyHunt: This is a spinoff of #TheHunt. It is a daily photo or video idea. The goal is to get people to start noticing smaller details in life. I started a page for the #DailyHunt, so if you're interested, check it out.

Shared Circles:

I'm working on curating a few very niche circles to share. If you think you belong in any of these circles, let me know and I'll review your profile to see if you fit.

Guy Approved - People who share stuff you'd see in a Maxim or Men's Health magazine. Cars, sex, gadgets, men's fitness, men's fashion, etc.

Orlando Plussers - Active plussers in the Greater Orlando area.

Original Content - People who create unique original content. Topic doesn't matter, as long as it's original.

Lifehacks - People who share tips for winning the game of life. This can include tips for productivity, work, family life, etc.

WTF - People who share content that blows your mind. This circle is like walking into a circus sideshow.

Snowboarding - Professional snowboarders, people who cover snowboarding events, or just snowboarders who like to carve fresh pow.

Memes - People who share the newest memes. 

Music Videos - I loved MTV as a kid, and this circle is a way to bring that back. The people in this circle share one or two (or more) music videos a day. A great way to discover new music.

Howard Stern - Stern Superfans or members of the staff. I don't think any of the whackpackers are here yet, but if they are, they'll be in this circle. This circle will also include show regulars. 143!

GTD - People who are active in the teachings of David Allen's Getting Things Done. This circle is predominantly about productivity.

War Eagle - Auburn University alumni, fans, and pages

Swimming Pool Pros - Filled with poolboys



Everything else about me - the long version:

My 7-year college career is pretty unique. I attended Auburn University (War Eagle!), Jacksonville University, University of North Florida, and about a week at Stetson University. All of that to major in music education, which never ended up happening.

I now own a very successful swimming pool service company in Orlando, but have worked as a financial planner for Prudential Securities (Series 6 and 7), and worked in the medical field with Blue Cross Blue Shield, where I ended up getting about 600 of my closest friends fired by creating a computer program that completely automated claims processing (2000 - VooDoo).

I also earned my real estate license, then real estate brokers license, and went on to start my own real estate firm. During the early to mid 2000s, I explored blogging and alternative marketing, and was asked to speak at different real estate events, and went on to open my very own social media company, where I offered social media coaching, and web/blog design. 

One passion I've had as a child is photography, and I ended up really falling in love with real estate photography. I enjoyed it so much, I opened the doors to Orlando Real Estate Photography in 2005, and we've been lucky enough to have been hired by mostly large marketing firms for high-end condos and luxury apartments. 

I love meeting others, which is why I post my phone number. If you're ever near the Orlando airport and want to grab a drink, give me a call or text me. 407-729-9695.

Stopped in during a Saturday lunch rush. Had ribs, and they were great! There was a little confusion during the ordering process, but it was to be expected since the place just opened. Great food, quaint environment, and decent service for being so new.
