Poets and Photographers Wed and Thurs.

Cape Ann MA, in a section called Rocky Neck, every New Year's Day people have a tradition of being brave (or a little crazy) of taking a 'dip' into the Atlantic Ocean. ArtMuseDog and I decided we were a little bit crazy but chose to take photos of these dear people taking the plunge into the ocean. It was cold and windy enough just waiting to take some photos. So here are 2 fun photos for you. Any of you have any traditions like this?

Yearly (Y) for ABC ~ New Year's Day Swim at Rocky Neck 2013 ~ Temps ~ 30's

Another 'Y' for ABC ~ New Year's Day Swimmers on Rocky Neck MA

'G' ~ Gull ~ Sunning Self on New Year's Day ~ Brrrrr! for Alphabe Thursday and Cool Clicks Thursday

For Sensational Haiku Wed ~ Prompt 'onward'

For Carpe Diem Haiku ~ prompt 'fireworks'

After the Atlantic Ocean plunge photo op, we then went to the Rocky Neck Art Colony Cultural Center for hot chocolate and social repartee. From there we went to my sister's house for dinner with her and her family. Below is a photo of ArtMuseDog taking a liking to Deb who was slicing turkey. Hmmm?

Deb has 'good stuff' she is serving!

We are sharing today with:

It has been a busy and delightful day. Guess who is asleep?

Wishing you the best for each day in 2013.

Hugs and namaste,


We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day, especially, ArtMuseDog ^_^
