  3. Your haiku makes me want to give you a big hug. (Sending love and hugs virtually at least). The steam-punk-like horses and rooster are so different and interesting. But the real life Muse Dog and the beautiful ocean are as always my very favorites.

  4. The horse sculpture made of horse shoes has a certain irony!

  5. Hello, Carol! I love the views of the water and ships and sweet pup! Your sketches of the flower and deer are wonderful. The poem is pretty but with a sad ending. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  7. You are wise, Carol for many reasons...Spring is coming slowly this year (as it is freezing today!!) and "grieving pain hurts" however, the critters you found are interesting too. Your favorite is another "wise" choice!...:)JP

  61. Wonderful photos. Love that little canine face.

    I think my favorites are the sculptures. I always wanted to learn to weld. Never got that far.

    Have a great weekend.
