Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us! I move into my new place tomorrow, so you may not see me around a lot over the weekend, but I send you wishes for beautiful reflections!
Enjoy your weekend!
You change your life by changing your heart.

loved the 2nd quote. :) and the 'starburst' in the photo is lovely!

Mama Zen said...

That first shot is just stunning!

Rebecca said...

The star burst was a great catch!

Lucy Corrander said...

A scene like this makes me feel at home because boats are a daily view for me.

Dorian Susan said...

I agree with texwis girl...that 2nd quote is worth reading more than once. I hope that first shot is hanging on your wall somewhere...it's spectacular. happy weekend.

Woody said...

I like the marina, it looks like a fun place to visit!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Congratulations on your move, dear friend! I am sending you best wishes and would love to be there and help you unpack!

I think that second quote works very well for your move, n'est-ce pas?

Bises,
Genie

Love the quotes! pretty serie, the ducks rank is great!

snowwhite said...

Starburst seems to be a sign given to us. I do love the dynamic clouds too. I agree with Dorian, the 2nd quote is the most implicative. Sylvia, have a nice weekend!

Leovi said...

The first is undoubtedly my favorite with the sky so dramatic, very beautiful. Greetings.

Dyche Designs said...

Beautiful shots, I especially love the last image.

Dianne said...

I love the flare from the sun in the top shot

Good Luck tomorrow!!

Hugs from me and Hope

Oh, the ducks, I love the ducks. And the ocean, and the boats, but especially the ducks. Only thing better than ducks on a log is ducks and turtles on the same log. LOL
The quotations are perfect, particularly the second one.

That first photo is spectacular with the four rays shooting out from the sun. And I LOVE the four ducks standing on the piece of wood, two cleaning their feathers and two looking for fish. The sailboats all lined up with the watery road between them is cool, too. Have a great weekend settling in to your new place, Sylvia.

Lovely photos - the first one is particularly stunning. Every good wish as you move to your new home. Hope all goes well.

George said...

Thanks for another set of marvelous pictures (and great quotes). I hope the move goes smoothly.

Ebie said...

I was also wondering if you might still have these shoreline views in your new place.

I love the first shot! Just like a twinkling little bright star!

A light, brighter than any human can ever create.

Please have you all a good weekend.
