A ShutterBug Explores ~ Our World Tuesday

'Some look at things that are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?'
~ George Bernard Shaw





Soon this small harbor on Cape Ann MA will be crowded with
mostly pleasure boats but a few working boats.
 Loved boating but lost my Captain several years ago
and our boat was too much for me to handle alone ~
Now I enjoy watching others and being near the water.
Grateful that I had boating in my life ~

It is a short season  (boating and life) but so lovely.
What do you miss in your life today?

We are sharing with: Our World Tuesday.


 I love your comments. Thank You.

  7. I think I have missed a lot in my life, but as I do care for them anymore, I always want to experience what is left before it leaves me away. Glad you had a boat and enjoyed boating, and I'm sure you cherish those moments every time you're close to water. The harbor looks quiet now, and I hope people enjoy their time following the pandemic norms.

  8. Though not a boater, there are scenes not unlike this which catch my eye, bring a memory forth and then I too, will miss the captain who kept my life on course ...

    1. Losing our partners does make it difficult sometimes ~ no one to share our deepest thoughts or even our daily decisions ~ not easy but we 'keep on.' Xo

  9. Although you miss your Captain, it appears you adjusted your sails beautifully and with heart.

  10. I understand your love of boating. We sure enjoy it, but we are both slowing down. We still go and enjoy we just do it slower. A wonderful thing to do together.

    Have a fabulous day, honey. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Angel. ♥

  12. I miss going out in the boat and camping when we went fishing. My husband died a little over a year ago and summer was full of weekends at the lake. I am grateful I have terrific memories and I can fish from shore. Have a marvellously happy day!

  14. I'm sorry for your loss, but your attitude about it is inspiring.. My father passed away a little over a year ago and we used to take literary based vacations together. One of my faves is when we did a Hemingway vacation and read aloud from his books around the fire each night. We laid lilacs on his and Miss Mary's grave in Idaho.

    1. Difficult to lose our loved ones but as you wrote ~ such treasured memories we have ~ Xo

  15. Oh Carol... my heart goes out to you. But I am so glad you have good memories of experiences that you delighted in, while you continue to make new and different kinds of memories. There are so many things I would never be able to do without my captain, boating included. Your post reminds me that the things I do miss right now are insignificant ... and also reminds me that circumstances can ... and will ... change and to treasure the memories.
