  1. Ah, I do love the boats and the water!! Great shots for the day, Carol! Hope you have a great week!!

  2. Great photos. I especially like the one with the light reflecting down on to the water. I wonder why the schooner in the first photo is at anchor but with one sail still up?

  3. I laughed when I read it hadn't snowed yet! Don't tempt Mother Nature like that. lol

  4. Though 20 years living aboard have made boats less romantic to me, you have reached me and made me smile at pleasant rocking at the rope's end on a Summer day. Nicely!
