'Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believeing that it is stupid.

For Scenic Weekends






Another view of one of my favorite board walks ~ Walking back to hotel from beach.
For Black and White Wednesday





'C' for Alphabe Thursday ~ 'Cutie Patootie' ~ 





Another radiant sunset sky for Sky Watch Friday





Haiku for Haiku My Heart Friday

Sea Turtles are lessening dramatically in number ~ One sign is that horseshoe crabs and jelly fish are washing in with the tide which historically have been food for the Sea Turtles. There are many reasons why this is happening.





We are wishing you the best in each day. xo

Your posted comments add delight to our day. thanx!

  2. I hate the thought of sea turtles dying. I know this is a fact but it still makes me sad. I do all I can for nature. If everyone did it would be a better world for us all. Love your photos, especially of your cutie patootie.

  3. The tree branches make a great black and white shot - strong, and full of texture.

  8. Do not blame you one bit for leaving a piece of your heart there. A beautiful place. That's the thing about travel! (The joy and the regret are often the same thing.)

  9. Love the black and white bridge shot! And I always enjoy photos of your cute dog.

  10. So many beautiful scenes! I had a chuckle at the fisherman sitting in the chair by the water - I guess fishermen are the same all over the world! The trees over the sand are all very beautiful and the sunset is perfect. Thanks for sharing.

  14. What great pictures of the beach. So sad that the turtle is declining in number

  15. Oh Carol , I can understand how your heart is torn between GA and MA-both shores are filled with beauty-and the sea! Beautiful photos. We found a sea turtle washed up on the shore the other year at the Delaware beach and it was SO sad. It was all caught up in a fisherman's net...have also seen our fair share of washed up horseshoe crabs too.

  16. That looks like a perfect beach. I'd love to explore that part of Georgia.

  21. In Lanzarote I was so upset to see a man preparing 2 Sea Turtles to eat. Such beautiful and endangered creatures.

  22. Hi! I like your B & W wednesday photo very much. Your Haiku is very cool. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  23. What a lovely golden sunset!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love the view of your b&w boardwalk!

    ReplyDelete
  25. So beautiful Carol, I love the boardwalk/bridge image… it evokes the mystery of being on a path with faith, not knowing where it will lead, but continuing onward nonetheless.

  26. Goodness, sweet puppy, and what pretty views!

  27. I like #1 the best. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  28. Your Cutie Patootie is just that! I think my Sadie girl would love having a playdate with this cutie.

  29. Aw...cutie patootie is really a sweetheart! Love your photo shares and your choice for the letter C. Thank you and enjoy your week.

  30. A lovely place to be. I do like the view down the board walk. You must enjoy being lucky enough to capture a place like this.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I knew when I saw "Cutie Patootie" on AlphabeThursday that it would be a cute pic of the ever adorable ArtMuse Dog! I see she's giving somebody a raspberry!

    ReplyDelete
  32. So many amazing pictures today. I particularly like the board walk, and the sunset, and the... well, they are all great.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sure is a cutie patootie. (Did I spell that correctly?) I was surprised to see how close the trees were to the shoreline. I don't see that here.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Absolutely beautiful pictures !!

    ReplyDelete
  35. The surf fishing looks so relaxing! I hate to hear about the decline of the sea turtles. Their reproduction rates are very low so it will take a very long time (if ever) for the population to come back.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love the shots your captured. Especially the one of your little dog.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Beautiful pictures but my favorite is 'Cutie Patootie' !

    ReplyDelete
  38. I must remind myself to be realistically clever.

  39. Love the fish quote, so true :) Gorgeous summer approaching photos, topped of course by cutie Art Muse Dog, missing my crazy poodle! Enjoy your weekend

  41. Hello Carol, for so many years... I thought I was a fish living in a tree... it is a great quote and I'm trying to put it together with your haiku. I so want things to stay the same, to flourish to grow, I sometimes have a hard time with evolution, and wonder what this kind of change means and what I can do to be a part of nature, rather than that fish told to climb a tree... pats to your cutie patootie!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Living or dying, whether at the seashore or in the desert sands---it's all a part of life!

    ReplyDelete
  43. fishing! my favourite past time - and your dog, I have to keep saying this, is SO cute :-)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wonderful photos, Carol. Love that photo of Cutie Patoodie. Why is it that we think cats and dogs look cute with their tongue stuck out, as if in thought, but not humans. LOL
