  1. Hi Carol

  3. I don't know why I had such trouble finding your comment section today, must be the effects of that meteor that hit. Love the photos and don't know if I asked, Is Artmuse a Yorkie? Did you say earrings, lol? The reflection of the sunset on the ice is so delicate yet spectacular.

  4. I love tugboats and other working vessels. Your dog is cute!! It doesn't seen that you have had the snow and ice that you have had in past years.

  10. Hi Carol, this is a beautiful post. So pretty is the stonewall fence and sunset. But my favorite is the bright, colorful "dredge" boat. What a great boat, if even just for cleaning up. I enjoy your artwork. Little Artmuse is a sweetheart. Have a wonderful week!

  11. What a tugboat load! Nice collection.

  15. We see lots of tugs on our lake and the nearby ocean. They are an important means of transport along Coastal BC where roads are few and far between. - Margy

  21. Love the photo of the dredger, at the moment it's scallop season here so there are one or two around the area.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Exquisite shots Carol,
    Anything that moves on the water is always of interest to me,
    Of course the best critter on your cape has to be your gorgeously
    pretty little dog, i bet she's got lots of fans.
    Your Evening skies are Excellent.
    Best wishes,
    Di.

  23. Exceptionally clever little limerick,
    I am a great lover of amusing writings
    and limerics, so i'm rather interested
    in reading more of Laura Richards writing,
    a new discovery for me so later, when I have
    more time, I'm going to read some more of
    her works,
    Thank you for sharing this amusing piece
    with us and I do just love Elephants too !

    Best wishes,
    Di,

  24. Love the evening sun and the sky's colors!! But once again, Zoe and her new Valentine scarf would make ANY Yorkie jealous.

    ReplyDelete

  32. The red dredge is really fun to see, such a bright pop of color. Loving the wispy pink clouds and the stonewall/fence. Also Zoe looks super cute with her scarf.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Carol, a gorgeous painted sunset or wispy pink clouds over the Cape Ann's harbor is beautiful. Your whimsical art delights and inspires the inner artist (I shared a few of my doodles on Tuesday in Simple hand-drawn Valentine's Day cards) that's trying to get out. Maybe someday, I can do these sorts of things. You're so talented!

    Visit, Afternoon sunshine

  62. You should send that last painting to Elizabeth Warren, who is just that -- and my hero and idol. (Oh, if only ....).

    I love to watch tugboats and dredges work and the bright red color makes these ones extra fascinating.

    Happy Valentine's Week (AMD looks wonderful in her new Holiday finery!)
