Jack - Well, I have to admit I never thought of him as a philosopher -- great or otherwise, but I liked what he said -- assuming he did indeed say it! Enjoy your day, Jack! Thanks for the visit/comment as always!

They are all very nice! Something about sailboats reminds me of freedom...

'Tsuki said...

The last one is absolutely stunning, Sylvia : nice colors caught on this sunset... Well done !

Leovi said...

Both the photo and the phrase, the second is my favorite. regards

The good thing about the news is that it gives us a good reason to spend more time outdoors. And that gives us beautiful captures like the ones you've shared with us. Have a wonderful weekend.

Wonderful shots, Sylvia. I especially love the sailing boat, and the way it's moving into the photo. I hope you and Sam have a great weekend, and get some more good weather!

I just love the sailboat photo. The Lincoln and Nimoy quotes are wonderful.

Thanks for stopping by my nieces blog today. She is a very nice young lady.

Have a good weekend. The family is going to our local minor league baseball team game this evenning. They are having a fireworks show afterword.

Sunday, I'm going to an oil and gas convention in Wichita, KS. I'll be finding lots of geocaches there.

The sailboat is my favorite; it's been a long time since I've been on one. It has a great reflection too.

As a sailor myself, I love that sailboat!

Hi, Sylvia. It's always fun to visit here to see different header each time, breathtaking photos, and quotes. When I see the sunset over the water in summer, I always feel the scorching sun is going to bathe to soften the heat of the world. I love it, and the one of the lace curtain as well. Have a nice weekend.

Ann said...

Are you going to ride in that little inflatable boat?

Pietro said...

Wonderful reflection pictures, Sylvia!
Happy weekend!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
