|Cape Ann MA ~ Fishing Boat leaving harbor ~ for Mosaic Monday|
|Cape Ann MA ~ Sunrise ~ for Mandarin Orange Monday|
|For Monday Mellow Yellows ~ ArtMuse Dog now poses for camera.|
|For ABC Wednesday ~ J is for Jib ~ a type of sail|
More winter weather is predicted ~ a wintry mix. That sailboat with the 'jib' up sure looks inviting! Have been dabbling in some pastels lately, went to a dance Saturday night and it was very good for my creative spirit, being with friends and dancing up a storm. Find walking every day and some yoga all enhance my creative spirit. Wonder what you do to exercise mind, body and spirit?

Beautiful shots Carol, looks like art muse dog likes the camera, have a good week.ReplyDelete
I just want to scoop up Art Muse and take him away with me to spend a day! He is almost as cute as my grandbabies. lolReplyDelete
Lovely photos and perfect words.
Love the fishing boat leaving the harbor and little ArtMuseDog posing for you! We are supposed to get a wintery mix here tonight and tomorrow. Will spring ever come?ReplyDelete
Beautiful place and mosaic!ReplyDelete
Have a great new week.
Love your pictures. You're very good at this photography stuff.ReplyDelete
Love the canine too. I was once owned by an adorable Bichon Frise - still miss her, although she's long since left my life, and this mortal coil too.
Re Creativity: I never see myself as particularly creative. I just enjoy blogging, that's all.
Have a good week
Your pictures are always bright and colorful !!!ReplyDelete
Pretty shots of the Harbor and fishing boats. And the sunrise is beautiful. ArtMuse dog is looking very cute, as usual! Lovely post, have a happy week!ReplyDelete
The fishing boats always intrigue me. With all those lines a great joy for a photographer to capture...you did a great job.ReplyDelete
The sunrise is amazing with the sun peeking thru the cloud. Hope you get some springlike conditions soon!ReplyDelete
What a lovely aqua colour the water is in the harbour - I love old fishing boats, they are so full of character!ReplyDelete
Your little dog is just the cutest too!
Love seeing the fishing boat....reminds me of The Perfect Storm! ;) ArtMuse Dog is so adorable! Lovely site you have! :)ReplyDelete
ArtMuseDog is even cuter than I thought...like that's even possible!ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos and a fantastic Haiku. So beautiful !ReplyDelete
The dance sounds like a lot of fun! I like to take walks in the woods to exercise body and spirit. I always feel so revived afterwards.ReplyDelete
Love the photo of ArtMuse Dog! Such a cutie as always :)
sigh....I do love me some great eye candy! Thanks for sharing these sweet treats!ReplyDelete
Everything looks so pretty and filled with sunlight. Wintry mix...It's hard to believe but it is rather chilly out. I find that walking about town and the beach keeps me energized, at peace, and filled with awe at the beauty around me. Even when it's cold...just makes it all the nicer to come home.ReplyDelete
Hey we got a wintry mix today too! UGH!ReplyDelete
That sailboat does look sweet ( and warm, and summery, and NOT Wintery Mixed at all ) :)
All your photos are great Carol, I particularly like the ones for Mosaic Monday, fishing boats and seabirds are great subjects.ReplyDelete
Thank you for visiting my blog!
I love the quote. It's such good advice.ReplyDelete
Such a cheerful post Carol. ArtMuse dog is cute. Have a lovely and creative week!ReplyDelete
Beautiful doggy and fishing boat!ReplyDelete
Beautiful fishing boat and doggy!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos Carol. I like the water colours of the mosaic. Thank you for visiting and leaving your kind comment. PamelaReplyDelete
Cape Ann is a beautiful place.ReplyDelete
Lovely photos! It is almost spring; we are heading for warmer days and lesser clothes. I look forward to that. Maybe I will find energy to take some walks, then. (I am forced to take anti-psychotic medicines so I am very weak.) My answer to your question is "writing poetry". I know there is not much physical challenge in that. But there is a lot of mental challenge in that. And joy. Thank you Lord! And when I get comments on my poems like the one you just gave I feel fantastic. Thank you! :-)ReplyDelete
Wonderful sets of photos. Sure seems a good place to be at. Nicely Carol!ReplyDelete
Pity the poor seagull, not knowing where to find the savory treat!ReplyDelete
Barley One and Barley Two

Beautiful series of shots. Visiting late for MMY. Happy Tuesday!ReplyDelete
Beautiful captures. Happy MOM. Hope you could drop by my Orange take.ReplyDelete
lovely haiku and the photos are just amazing!ReplyDelete
I hope the seagulls will find their field of green barley. Awesome haiku Carol intwined through all those wonderful photo's. Thank you for your every day effort to post here on Carpe Diem.ReplyDelete
Sailboats sometimes sail on our lakes, but hard to see the beautiful ones here. I definately need to go on vacation and see some like the one you have. The water and color of the sail are gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Beautiful maritime photos, and as always, your haikus are sweet. Have a lovely day. :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos Carol! Yoga is a favorite of mine too, I just love stretching and breathing, wonderful!ReplyDelete
Beautiful shots and I hope spring reaches you soon. We're having spring weather where I live but I noticed in the extended forecast that we might get a little snow next week. Carver, ABC Wed. TeamReplyDelete

So Zoe is becoming a ham...She looks very Irish....Now, did you really think that seagull would have a clue?!ReplyDelete
I love seeing the creative juices flowing. You are most talented.ReplyDelete
Never been on a sailboat in my life, but it's on my bucket list! Love your photos!ReplyDelete

In my younger days a do a jib often and I like it very much.ReplyDelete
Welcome to Norway:-)
Always a lovely collection of images and verse you give us! Enjoy seeing the fishing activities there, being retired from the sea.ReplyDelete
I love these boats on the harbour. I went down to our harbour yesterday and photographed boats too in my lunchtime. and sort of wished I was sailing off somewhere.ReplyDelete
We here are starting our first days of autumn.
Have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by my blog today.
A new to-me word - jib. And it's a pretty blue sail boat.ReplyDelete
My husband is a gr8 fan of haikus!ReplyDelete
I like the cut of your Jib!ReplyDelete
I always wanted to say that and this was my chance, thanks!
It's always so calming to come here for a visit. And Art Muse Dog makes my heart melt. Those eyes!ReplyDelete
Lovely mosaic, I liked the green boat.ReplyDelete
