How inappropriate to call this planet Earth
when it is quite clearly Ocean.

for ABC Wednesday link and letter is 'J' for Jagged coast.
The ocean was still a bit rough and lots of seaweed on several beaches. Nature in all her glory had lots of fun.

  1. Hello Carol! Beautiful ocean views after the storm.
    The fence is so pretty as is your 'edible' etagami painting!
    I think I like the first presentation of miss Zoe - so sweet!
    Have a wonderful week!

  4. Beautiful ocean shots. Such fun to see your sketches. I like #1. Those earrings are a hoot.

  5. isn't the ocean after a storm just beautiful? OK the ocean is beautiful no matter what the weather so long as no one gets hurt. Beautiful poetry and art. And my vote goes to the first pic of sweet Zoe-the more I see of her darling face , the happier it makes me feel! Have a wonderful week!

  6. Everything looks so crystal clear after the storm. I expect the air was good too.

  7. How true - we are Ocean!
    Love the water views!

  8. I love your sketches, I especially love those mushrooms! Feels like autumn :-)
    I'd pick 1st photo presentation because I can see her pretty face better!

  9. I'm looking out on the ocean even as I view your post, and your photo is very close to what I am seeing. The haiku is wonderful, as always. It's very cool that you can create the sketches as well.

  11. I just love Zoe's newly groomed fluffy white fur above her eyes.

  12. The earring is adorable, but I love the picture showing her beautiful eyes the best! (Of course, I've never been a jewelry person really ;>).) Your rugged coastline is just beautiful and I'm glad it wasn't a horrible storm in your area. Thank you as always for the charming haiku and artwork.

  13. That white picket fence is iconic and the first couple of shots make me want to make a splash!

    ReplyDelete
  14. sigh. the top photos of the beach and rocks remind me of being up north.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Lovely photo's and choice for this weeks prompt on ABC!

    Jewelry for dogs... or animals in particular... not my cup of tea... but that is a matter of taste isn't it. I like animals as pure as they can be.

    Have a nice ABC-day / – week

  18. cute mushroom art :)

    and the second photo presentation I think works best with the black lines :) do the little earrings bug her?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I sure like your haiga. Keep meaning to learning more about it.
    I like both presentations of Artmuse. The second one shows off the earring more.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hi! I like your second Haiga(俳画) and Haiku(俳句) very much. Thanks for sharing.

  21. I like the quote at the start - and much of the ocean seems to have fallen onto the State of Victoria in the last couple of weeks. Wet it is indeed!

  28. Hello dear Carol! I LOVE that Arthur C. Clark quote!!! Your haiga and haiku... are lovely. I want to be a mushroom right now! My fav of the two photo pics is the first. After all, its all about Zoe, right? She wears that bling well. I can just imagine her strutting, as they know how stylin' they are! You two have a beautiful weekend in your gorgeous part of the world. XO

  32. Hello Carol, The Sea...I like thinking that you are on the opposite coast from my dear Pacific Ocean. If you twist my arm I would say I like the first pic but each has its own merits. I enjoyed your cloud poem!
