  5. Great photos - again the one of the sea is my favorite - beautiful with the bushes and dead tree above the water. "Ipswich river" - I wonder where that name came from first - we have an Ipswich city not far from here.

  30. Hi Carol and Art ~~ I hadn't known of 'old wood' as you have it here. Interesting.
    Also the Ipswitch brought up memories of when I lived in New Hampshire.
    I loved Artmuse's footprints, I have Katrin's on my post today for the "W" word.

    Hello...........oooooo0000000OOOOOOOOO

    How are you?

    ReplyDelete
  59. That's a strange looking starry sky Carol - looks like you had wintry snow. Take care with those mushrooms now and don't let AMD near. The pink jacket is rather fetching and maybe too good for the beach and just for Sunday Best?
