  8. The water looks so calming and who doesn't love a red boat. We don't have to travel far to find answers that are already within.

  9. The big working boats have such interesting lines. And the eeling boat--il didn't know there was a market for eels in the US. Nice photos.

  10. Dearest Carol;
    Wonderful pictures of harbor with varieties of fishing vessels. I LOVED the contrast of with color and monotone♡♡♡ I thought Japanese might be the only people who eat eel; they are delicacy for us p;)

    1. Yes, Jules I have found that 'wisdom is in the balance' ~ having that 'knowing deep within' so that when chaos is around you can go to that place inside that gives you balance and breath is central to everything ~ ~ takes lots of daily practice like everything that one learns well. Thanks for asking ~ Happy Week to you ^_^

  30. I really enjoyed this post. It reminded me so much of my father. He loved boats and always had them displayed on the wall in his office. I can remember visiting him when I was a little girl, always gazing up at the boats in glass bottles or pictures made of string. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I always enjoy when a scene you would normally expect to highlight the color (for example - water) is presented in black/white. Nicely done.

    ReplyDelete

  43. The crocuses aren't about to come out from under their snow cover until they know it's safe!
