Schooner Festival on Cape Ann



Sunday morning spent drinking chai tea on the deck and watching the impressive views from the Schooner Festival on Cape Ann MA. It was a cool morning, yet, delightful after all the humid hot weather. For fleeting moments it felt the harbor was looking like it was the 19th century instead of the 21st. 

The photo below is a semi macro of my geraniums that I thought were gone for the season. The are making a come back and looking rather lovely. My weekend creativity for my spirit was focused on photography and seeing the beauty all around me.






Geraniums make come back for Labor Day

haiku
(prompt was 'despair)

thoughts turn sad today
changing thinking around now
no need to despair.

-o-

many feel despair
reason to be, loss, lonely
time passes, soul heals.
-o-

round and round thoughts go
monkey mind controlling thought
stop, change, look for good.
-o-

Well, there it is. Hope you had a great weekend and wishing you a lovely and loving week.

Hugs and namaste,

and




We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day ~ especially, ArtMuse Dog ^_^

  15. That first shot is idyllic!
    When I lived in Virginia I had geraniums sometimes up until Christmas - very resilient flowers.

    What a simply amazing photo of a gorgeous place, a stunning view, and a vintage feel. You have truly captured the essence of this weekend. Of course, the geraniums were an added bonus!

  30. I imagine Cape Ann looked just like it does now in earlier times as did the sailboats. The one thing missing would have been you on the deck overlooking this beautiful view. :)

  37. I think there is something restful about watching boats like that! Assuming that its not blowing a gale of course!
