'Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures, and the whole of nature and its beauty.' ~ Albert Einstein




Tuesday ~ 
For 'Our World Tuesday' ~ This is what Cape Ann MA looks like 'summer time' ~ lots of different types of 'boats' ~ Notice all the sail boats at the Yacht Club in the distance.

Sharing with: Our World Tuesday link.




Wednesday
One of 3 schooners open to the public on Cape Ann MA ~ It is a type of boat ~ like my naval son said when I called a ship a boat ~ 'Mom, it is a ship.' ~ Well this is a schooner but a type of boat.

'B' for boat for ABC Wednesday link

Anyone know what type of bug this is?  A Cape Ann MA bug?
It was on my deck fence.

    As always, I enjoy my visit to your page! We live in such similar environs on each side of the 'pond'. As a great shipping enthusiast, it is a huge pleasure to see your water craft shots - this article may be of interest... as for your 'bug', it is a <a href="http://www.insectidentification.org/insect-description.asp?identification=Reticulated-Netwinged-Beetle"rel="nofollow+><b>Reticulated Netwing Beetle</b></a>. Have a super week! YAM xx

  11. I love the etegami you are making. Your little Japanese characters go well with the words. You mentioning your son correcting you regarding the 'ship' reminds me of a time I called my brother's ship a boat. ha... I will never forget his reaction. "BOAT! THIS IS NOT A BOAT..." so I got my lesson.

  12. Lots of "boats" and so lovely summer aspects & sketches! Greetings!

  13. nice photos :)

    I was told the difference between a ship and a boat is a boat can go on a ship but a ship wont go on a boat. but then a submarine is a boat even tho most couldn't be carriedd by a ship :p

  22. i like your kite flyers. and your bug. sweet rainy-day scene and lovely sailboats!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Summer looks beautiful and your etagame and haiku are wonderful. i love the kites. Even the bugs on Cape Ann are beautiful! On your "B" post -- there are boats and there are boats -- the ones you show are way different from the one we have -- and yet, my 'mariner" husband gets as exasperated as your son when I use landlubber vocabulary -- like saying "drive the boat" or "do you want me to throw you the string to tie it" ... he makes me laugh!

  24. GREAT PHOTOS!!!! Love the art journal pages also ♥ Have a great weekend !!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ah, buggy looks familiar. I think we have one of every bug in the world in Florida! Send the pic to your local county extension agent and he/she will tell you. Awesome post, as always. xo

  40. It is a rather elegant bug, but one I'd rather have on the outside, no matter how gorgeous looking it is! I'm happy to see the ships (boats) come sailing by in your summer days, enjoy!

  43. Love your etegami kite series, they give a sense of freedom and happiness.

  44. Carol....I ADORE these etegami. I cannot wait for you to see mine and see if there is any improvement. I am really plugging at it and having a wonderful time. My cold press Fluid watercolor block arrived and it is the best. Don't think it is a heavy flow paper. The schooner picture reminds me of going out on a tall ship at Provincetown Mass. It is beautiful. Letter on the way today. Happy week to you. genie
