A SHUTTERBUG EXPLORES ~ 89

Our World Tuesday ~ 
The rocky coast of Cape Ann MA and the wild surf
from all the variable weather.




ABC Wednesday ~ letter is X 
X ~ marks the spot for this ocean duck who despite the cold windy day this duck was having a lovely swim on
Cape Ann MA ~
 Zoe and I were walking rather fast
as it was  a bit cold and all I had was my iPhone.




A Simple Town Life ~ What are you grateful for?

Despite the rain, fog, wind and cold and hot temperatures ~
I am grateful for this beautiful flower and others in my yard on
Cape Ann MA that are thriving with the variable weather.





Haiku My Heart ~ 

Haiku for you from Cape Ann MA ~ 




Sky Watch Friday ~ 
Gentle sky at twilight over Cape Ann MA 





Paint Party Friday 
Working on free hand watercolor angels ~
Hope you don't get bored with them




Saturday Critters and Camera Critters ~ 
My favorite 'critter' on Cape Ann MA or anywhere. ^_^




Shadow Shot Sunday ~ 
 St. Peter's Fiesta is coming and this was display at the nine day 
novena on Cape Ann MA. It is an Italian event that is in
its 90th year. Also, this is part of a display the women
put together for the novena that began
last Monday. The quote touched my heart deeply.

  8. Carol,I love your Haiku and image....and I never tire of angels,we need them all.....our fur angels too (especially)! Nature seems to adapt wonderfully to changes in weather conditions....the internal clocks just keep ticking.

    Wishing you both a lovely creative week,
    Ruby

  13. I've betting Artmuse Dog is a real ham at this point. One of the Teddys I take care of is like that, will pose at the drop of a hat (or in his case the wearing of one). Your watercolor angels are sublime as are the cape shots. I wouldn't have picked out the little duck, very cute.

  14. The white flower is so beautiful. what is that?

  15. I love the quote. We have been reeling from a serious of dreadful events since I arrived in the UK, and this touched me. It is a fitting quote following your angels and no we will never tire of these!
    Have a lovely week, to you and Art-muse dog :)

  18. Well I could say, x-marks the spot to but that would refer to a dry spot where nobody needs to take a swim, a dive maybe ;-0

    Have a X-traordinary ABC-day / week

  21. Hello Carol! Always great aspects shared, lovely details from nature and positive words in lyrics (haiku). Also, so delicate watercolor angels in you drawings. And little Zoe is so cute looking at your photo camera, too.

    A nice day and weekend! warm greetings, Alexa
