  1. It is amazing how a few well-placed lines can result in a grasshopper with personality! I do remember David Carradine and the wonderful series and try not to think of his dramatic end.

  23. Hello Carol!:) Love your Cape Ann seascapes and vessels, and the necessary seawall barrier is a good choice for Good Fences. I remember the quote, and used to watch the series "Kung Fu" on TV with the kids when they were young. Gosh that was a long time ago!:) Nice peek a boo, and Turtle Dove shots. Lovely Post!:)

    ReplyDelete

  27. It's so nice to see and visit old familiar faces from the Haiku circle... I haven't joined for ages and I feel at home right away! I moved houses and live near the sea (North sea) now, so your haiku today speaks even more to me! The sketches are great too (yes, I remember Kung Fu, one of my fave series when I was young!) Have a great weekend, hug from Holland

  47. Your etegamis are lovely and your haiku is wonderful as well. I enjoy seeing your photos very much as well.

  48. That water and the beautiful tall ship are divine. Still, I remember my ride on one while in Provincetown one summer. It was such a thrill. Your dove looks so happy on his perch and that shadow...it is amazing. Loved seeing Zoe again, and your etegamis this week are great. You have mastered the "simplicity rule" where I still have a long ways to go. My one of Bud's AT boots that now hold flowers is going to get made into a picture and framed for his room. Those boots lasted 10 years of hiking to finish the trail. Have a nice week. Hugs...genie

  49. I really like the Seawall, Also the pretty dove on the fence and the Sail Boat. - A very nice and enjoyable post.

    ReplyDelete
  50. YOU have done well Carol!! Your etagamis fascinate me; I just love the simplicity and this haiku speaks to me (I want to frame it or put it on the cover of a journal). Enjoy the rest of your beautiful summer and hope your favorite critter (whom we all love) gets used to the new arrangement of her home.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Another great post, Carol! I love all the pics, especially the grasshopper. I used to love watching the Kung Fu series so many years ago. :)
