    ReplyDelete
  31. Carol, those ship photographs are wonderful! My cousin is in Martha's Vineyard, and we love the New England Coast. I also love our harbor here in St. Augustine. There is something wonderful about boats on the water.

    Thank you for sharing this boat parade with us! And before I forget, that little dog face is PRECIOUS. What a doll!

  32. I liked your "'Parade of Sail' ~ 'P' for:" pictures, Carol. I suppose 'the dog' had to stay home for that. Those ships are sooo pretty and you got some very good pictures. I hope they will come to Galveston (Texas) again soon. I missed last. Our tall ship, Elissa, may have been there. Do you remember her coming?

  56. How exciting to be able to see all those boats on parade and especially the tall ships! Such a poignant haiku, about neighbours moving away and their flowers still blooming after they have gone. Life does go on, doesn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  57. LOVE the tall ships! We saw the Parade of Sail in New York Harbor in 1986 (while there for the re-opening of the cleaned and refurbished Statue of Liberty for her susquecentennial) and again have seen many in Norfolk, Va. when we lived there. They are wonderful!

    ReplyDelete

  85. Lovely haiku for Carpe Diem. I enjoyed your photos too.
    If you are stuck with green tomatoes at seasons end, just put them in a brown paper bag too and they'll ripen up with their own gases.

    You could also make fried green tomatoes or green tomato salsa - add some pineapple for a sweeter salsa. :)

    ReplyDelete
