|Schooner Festival on Cape Ann|
Sunday morning spent drinking chai tea on the deck and watching the impressive views from the Schooner Festival on Cape Ann MA. It was a cool morning, yet, delightful after all the humid hot weather. For fleeting moments it felt the harbor was looking like it was the 19th century instead of the 21st.
The photo below is a semi macro of my geraniums that I thought were gone for the season. The are making a come back and looking rather lovely. My weekend creativity for my spirit was focused on photography and seeing the beauty all around me.

(prompt was 'despair)
thoughts turn sad today
changing thinking around now
no need to despair.
many feel despair
reason to be, loss, lonely
time passes, soul heals.
round and round thoughts go
monkey mind controlling thought
stop, change, look for good.
Well, there it is. Hope you had a great weekend and wishing you a lovely and loving week.
Hugs and namaste,
We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day ~ especially, ArtMuse Dog ^_^

I hope you were able to calm your monkey mind...what a beautiful place you live in, I could sit there with you sipping chai and looking out over this view!ReplyDelete
Wow! What a lot of boats out there!ReplyDelete
Your flowers are beautiful.

What an awesome view you have! The first shot would make a great postcard!!!ReplyDelete
The first picture makes me want to go on holidays !!ReplyDelete
What a great view you have from your deck!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous Pictures! Great blog and love the background!ReplyDelete
Your schooner festival image is so lovely -- what a treat to watch it from your deck! I like your quote for the day. Have a creative week! Namaste.ReplyDelete
That first shot is idyllic!ReplyDelete
When I lived in Virginia I had geraniums sometimes up until Christmas - very resilient flowers.
Oh, how I would love to be watching the schooners!ReplyDelete
The Schooner Festival looks like loads of fun. Have you ever been out on one?ReplyDelete
Have been out several times on the Schooner Lannon but not during the Festival ~ too crowded for me ~ ^_^ ~Delete
that is a very beautiful view. if its me i would probably hanging out there all the time. =) thanks for sharing..ReplyDelete
here is mine for MM
Your photograph of schooner fest is unbelievable. To me, it's like a dream. The quaint village surrounding the water. I would love to visit there one day.ReplyDelete
the haiku is lovely (^o^)/
Oh wow, these are amazing!ReplyDelete
Nice! There's so much to enjoy on your blog.ReplyDelete
Wow Carol (and ArtMuse Dog, too),ReplyDelete
What a simply amazing photo of a gorgeous place, a stunning view, and a vintage feel. You have truly captured the essence of this weekend. Of course, the geraniums were an added bonus!
Carol, you live in such a beautiful place. How wonderful to be able to sit and view such an awesome sight. I am so glad that you shared it with us. Your Haiku was beautiful and again gave me something to think about.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful view! The geraniums look great! I love your poem !ReplyDelete
I imagine Cape Ann looked just like it does now in earlier times as did the sailboats. The one thing missing would have been you on the deck overlooking this beautiful view. :)ReplyDelete
The buildings, shoreline and schooner all invite exploration....ReplyDelete
Wow! I love that first shot, I think I'd just be lost in a daze watching it. Your flowers are quite lovely as well and I also liked your haiku!ReplyDelete
Great photos of a beautiful seaside town. The schooners are magical! My Dad used to tell us stories of sailing in ships like that when he was a small boy.ReplyDelete
Very beautiful post!ReplyDelete
Amazing what you have spent the weekend.
Lovely images and words from you!
Thanks for sharing
The view is magical.ReplyDelete
Wow, a lovely view. Very nice you are able to watch the schooner festival from your deck. Your geraniums and haiku are lovely. Have a great week ahead.ReplyDelete
I think there is something restful about watching boats like that! Assuming that its not blowing a gale of course!ReplyDelete

Nice pictures you show.ReplyDelete
Wish you a good Tuesday :)
It is always so calming to sit by the water, and you live in the perfect place to do so...ReplyDelete
What a beautiful photo of all the boats. Wonderful to be able to see it this close.ReplyDelete
What a great way to spend your weekend! I need to remember that! What a great gift- to have the geraniums return!ReplyDelete
Your haiku is really something to think about. Thanks for reminding us! :)ReplyDelete
Terrific captures and a nicely worded haiku.ReplyDelete
The geranimums are beautiful! As always I love your pictures from the harbor.ReplyDelete
I love all those boats - that's not something I'll see where I live!ReplyDelete
How fun to sit on the deck and watch the boats! And yes, it does look very old-fashioned...ReplyDelete
I love your haikus. Usually I don't really care for them, but yours make sense and some even rhyme. lolReplyDelete
