  2. Hi Carol,

    I wonder if that blue will remain or will it be covered over? Perhaps you can bring us an update. Thanks for sharing.

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  3. A new hotel? I guess tourism is alive and doing very well on Cape Ann! The guests certainly will have gorgeous views!

  4. Hello Carol, lovely images from your world. I love the beach scenes and views of the water. Pretty reflections and haiku! Art Muse doggie is happy now that she can run on the beach. Your illustrations are cute.

  5. You have obviously covered every meme in blogger world today, and done it very effectively. I wonder if the blue on the hotel is that insulation board, but maybe they will pain it blue. Be sure to show us an update. Such a beautiful area where you are.

    All or nothing for the beach, eh? Glad you both can enjoy it now. The reflection is truly bright - and if they painted the hotel all blue, it would join the sea and the sky... YAM xx

  8. Interesting with partly blue on the building, is it temporary or will the whole house be blue?

  12. Happy days when the Muse Dog gets to go to the beach. It is sort of like when we get our park back to ourselves. The summer crowds stop visiting the park and it feels so much larger. The picture with the shimmering water does look like a hot summer day. Thankfully we are having some nice cool weather right now.

  13. Oh, I agree with Yam!! I'm glad you can both enjoy it now, too!! Hope you and Artmuse have a great week!!

  14. Very pretty scenes - it must be great to go to the beach with your furry friend. I was on a beach just like that in your part of the country a few weeks ago!

  15. Hi Carol!

    Love all your beach scenes. I miss the sand and surf at times. I'm glad Muse Dog was able to enjoy the beach again.
    PS: I fully understand your eye issue--I have been experiencing the same lately. I'm due to have eye surgery in a few months.

  19. I cut back to blogging once or twice a week. Just trying not to spend as much time on the computer. It's working pretty well for me. Great series of pictures. I bet Musedog was delighted to be able to be back on the beach! Enjoy your class! :)

  20. such a lovely series of water scenes-and I too love the one with the light over the water-so beautiful! Sweet sketches too.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I hope you view across to Cape Ann isn't spoiled by the building of that hotel. You seem to live in such a beautiful and peaceful part of the world.

    Have a great week. Good idea to have a break from that PC sometimes.

  43. Enjoy your respite from the heat. We're getting a little bit of respite here in the desert too. After triple-digit temps for weeks, it's now dipping into the 70s at night, and feels heavenly!

  49. I always enjoy my visit to Cape Ann. It's starting to feel a bit autumnal here in California, too. More like Indian Summer.

  60. Hi carol. I love the view through your trees the best. A wider world but protected in feeling. Keep on with your wonderful photos and journal paintings.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Looks like a decent resort being built. I love the sun reflecting the water though. Stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Beautiful photographs! I love your haiku, respite from the heat is something I'm hoping for soon. Adorable Alexandra inspired art!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I guess it's a good idea to not have dogs on the beach during the summer. It's nice too, that once Labor Day hits, they can be on the beach. Seems like a good compromise.

    ReplyDelete
  64. You always have such lovely photos! Great painting fun as well.
    Thanks for stopping by

  65. I love the bit of blue on the hotel. I really do. It makes the whole place stand out.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I am so late on PPF visits this week but glad I didn't miss this one... You live in such a beautiful place and those mittens are adorable... Not mitten weather over here as it appears summer is already arriving but it does make me wish it was red mitten weather

    ReplyDelete
  67. Lovely series! Wish the whole hotel will be blue...
    Have a great time :-)
