A SHUTTERBUG EXPLORES ~ 19


A Shutterbug explores the surrounding areas of Cape Ann MA each week with her camera and her assistant, most times. We do look for 'the magic' and sometimes it appears when we are seemingly not looking. What a gift! What treasures nature offers!

'Do every act of your life as though
it were your last act of your life.'
~ Marcus Aurelis




TUESDAY ~ Our World Tuesday ~ 
Looking across the harbor only buoys in the water and cold blue water.

Our world 
on Cape Ann MA has been a better Winter than last year but there is still February and March.
Anything can come for weather ~ It has been known to snow in May. Good thing is it melts quicker the closer we get to Spring.  But there is something pretty about snow too just makes it hard for people to get around.

  12. Hi Carol

    It does not look like you have that much snow there this winter--big change from last year! We have been getting warmish days soon followed by cold and snowy days. The moisture from the snow is good, as we need it. Art Muse dog always makes me smile--such a cutie and very expressive. Have a wonderful week!

    I'm sorry I didn't return your Warm Heart sooner. Thank you for peeking in on my 'auto-posted' "Found Money" post. It would have worked for my "F" post also but I have another. We have been on a Caribbean cruise with limited Internet.
