  2. Beautiful. I agree with the previous comment...I always love your scenery. And I particularly love oceans and boats and all things salty. Living here on the Canadian prairie, I enjoy seeing your ocean, birds, and boats.

  7. Another beautiful post. I love the poem about the wall. I saw on facebook today a meme about not building a wall, build a deck and invite everybody over for a party. I kind of liked that.

  8. Love that you led with a quote from Dr. Seuss. Beautiful, peaceful glimpses into your week.

    From one who is finally home from wanderings! Always joy when visiting you, Carol... but today's offerings seem to be even more special! The ducks are all eider, male and female (the chestnut coloured ones); and yes, Purusha is in the sun 😃 huggies, YAM xx

  10. Lovely shots. Certainly looks spring-like.

  11. Naturally, I favor all the bird images you've shared with us this week. AND love the two boats in the harbor. You just can't beat sea life.

    Oh and it goes without saying the last photo is a keeper!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I like the Haiku line “think clearly today” and your angel drawings, of course. The angels always look so free, airy and clear. They would make great greeting cards!

    ReplyDelete
  13. The sun figure looks like a snowman to me. I am sure you are ready for no more snow. Love seeing the flotilla of eider ducks. A lot of male and females gathered. I have only seen them a couple of times while in Maine. HRH is intently looking at something. Maybe she sees some of your angels flitting about.

  14. Hi Carol. Love your photos, the seagull is elegant in its stance on the fence rail, with the Cape behind. Your angels are a comforting sight! Have a wonderful week. Suzanne

  19. Seagulls looking for food are classic here too (Kolobrzeg, Poland). They are always hungry! I like the picture anyway. Also I love wall photo and Friday haiku.

    ReplyDelete

  23. That little bird remembered you all winter long -- he couldn't wait to come check out your feeders as soon as he got back from his winter travels ))). It does look like Spring is on the way. Love your scenery and your angels ... and your poetry .... And of course t he answer to your haiku is 'being cruel' --- to people and to the environment.

  35. obscene border wall
    keeps us in, keeps others out
    pandering to hate

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think walls are on a lot of people's minds these days. I like how Robert Frost begins his poem, "Mending Wall":

    Something there is that doesn't love a wall,
    That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
    And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
    And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Loving all your photos, especially the wall and the red boat. Can't wait for Spring to see what you post. I know it will be amazing! Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete

  42. Love all the birds, but especially the seagull. I used to see them all the time when I lived in Brooklyn, but no longer see them here as I am far from an ocean. Have a wonderful week, Carol!
