It caught my eye because of the angles, the colors and the beauty.

  6. There used to be a sandbar at a beach close to us when we lived in Florida and I loved it because the kids would feel like we were 'way out there' but it was still shallow enough for them to enjoy. :)

    Have a great week!

  8. I love the New England Fall colors ... your picture of the ship on the water with the colors in the background looks like it should be on a card or in a frame. Beautiful work for MOM.
