  42. Carol, I was viewing your lovely images and I thought, "I wonder how far we live from each other?" I think you are on one side of the coast and I am on the other?" The Tonka truck really spoke to me. Little man is coming next week and I think this would be great to have for him!
    Have a great day.

  45. Beautiful beach rock photo's. When I saw the first picture it looked so much like my home I knew you must be very close by. I am on the north shore of MA. and you are just across the water away in cape ann. I am hoping that the storms we had recently are not indicative of weather to come.

  51. Great photos, as always! I think I like the shot of the Tonka truck on the beach. I gotta know, did you stage this or happen up on it? I mean, I'm never quite so lucky as that. I loved that you were zealous in remember our veterans. I like how your words are mingled together to form such interesting little lines of poetry. Thanks for the visit, my friend! Oh yeah, did Sandy affect you much?

Nothing staged about the Tonka photo ~ Yankees in New England continue to go to beach on Nov days that are warm and this was a little boys truck and he was being very industrious building in the sand ~ and ArtMuse Dog and I just happened on the scene ~ i love serendipity times like that ~ Yesterday it was the Firemen practicing on the big hook and ladder ~ will post those late ~ thanks for asking ~ Sandy was a lots of wind and rain and no major damage gratefully ~ enjoy the weekend ~ ^_^
