  27. You are so blessed to live in such a beautiful place Carol! Happy Monday to you!

  28. Love the pictures all... there is something intriguing to me about working fishing boats (The place we go most often on the Oregon Coast also doesn't have very many working boats any more, used to be many when we first started going there.) The haiku and your painting of the piano keyboard are wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  29. magnificent photos carol, and your haikus are very poignant. If I lived by the water I'd be there taking it in no matter what the season.

  36. Hi Carol
    Isn't Lisa Ann 2 a great looking boat - I wonder whether there was a Lisa Ann 1?
    Love the seagull taking a rest - perhaps enjoying the last warmth of summer?

  50. Sorry, I don't know what it is causing your blog to lock up the browser, (Mozilla Not responding). It took 10+ minutes to get to the comment form. 1 GB of space at times is showing in Task Manager. The slow page loading here is very unusual. Beautiful blog for what I was able to view. Only one other time have I experience such slow page loading was about photo sizing.

  51. Carol, I love the colors of the marsh in the fall. Our marshes change colors as well. I can see them from my front porch.
