Sky and Sea

A   rainy week so far and more to come says the weatherman! 
  As I write this Thursday night, it is 63F and very nice out tonight and so silent.  No frogs, no bugs, nothing makes a sound!  The whole world is asleep while I write.   

I sit by the bay because it is a sacred place of peace and quiet.. only the sounds of birds and the water to be heard.
The scent of the salty sea calms the soul and refreshes the body.   I enjoy sharing my neighborhood with you.   Here are some photos for this Friday Photo time.  And, I am joining in with  Skywatch Friday.

“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It's always our self we find in the sea.”
 e.e. cummings

“The sea-shore is a sort of neutral ground, a most advantageous point from which to contemplate this world.” ― Henry David Thoreau, Cape Cod

“In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans; in one aspect of You are found all the aspects of existence.”― Kahlil Gibran Jr.

“Diamonds are a girl's best friend.” – Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn is right you know... and just look at my collection of diamonds littering the bay.   Lovely aren't they?

Ann ..


  1. What a lovely way to center myself before beginning the day capture such beauty...further enhanced by fitting quotes ...Brava !!!

  2. I needed that... Especially today.. Thank you.. :)

  3. These are my kind of diamonds...nature's own! Love the photos and quotes! Wish I was there enjoying the views!

  4. So lovely. I enjoyed the quotes as much as the pictures. The one my e.e. cummings made me go searching. I once visited a home in NH where he spent time writing. It was fascinating. Now I wish I could remember more about it. Thank you for jogging my brain. It gets a bit foggy nowadays. LOL.

  5. By the sea, I am able to be me. I claim the moment. Love the photos and the quotes.


I love comments and visits.
