  29. The cruise ship looks like a toy from this perspective, Carol. I love the cloudy, moody photo and that pure white sand photo on the seashore.

    I hope the nor-easter that is headed your way won't be bad. My husband is in Boston this week on business so I hope he'll be able to fly home.

  66. Hello Carol, so enjoyed these posts and my favorite haiku line was the "each pebble a sound..." Just lovely! I will be thinking on that one. Thank you for these creations. Pat that little muse of yours for me. Just as I wrote that, mine jumped up and put his paws on the keyboard. I think Leo wants to say hello to ArtMuse dog... Hope you had a great weekend.
