Sky Watch Friday!

Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by  the Sky Watch team of  Sandy, Wren and me. And this week as every week, we remember Klaus and know that he joins us in spirit! Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week! Click on the address under the post title to be taken to the SWF website where you can sign up. 
Hope all of you have had a wonderful week!  Christmas is definitely on the way now -- it's DECEMBER! Can you believe it?? Time does fly whether you're having fun or not! So, enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

You're presenting a wonderful series of skies again, Sylvia.
The last one is my favourite, it's great to see the sun trying to hide after the tree.
I hope you have a wonderwul weekend.

Mridula said...

I am in awe of those boats! Lovely pictures.

George said...

You've shared some beautiful skies with us again this week. I especially like the wispy clouds in your first and third photos.

NatureFootstep said...

nice, clear skies in your part of the world I see. :)

forgetmenot said...

That last photo is a "stunner"!!!! Love all the quotes-Bill Cosby was on the Tonight show the other night. He takes everyday situations that happen to all of us and makes them hilarious. I think that is why we love his humor-we have been in those same familiar situations and can identify with everything he is saying. Love your quotes on "Reflectoins Weekend" too. Mickie :)

Pearl Maple said...

Great collection of images Sylvia for sky watch fans, thanks for your kind comments on my post earlier

What Can I Say?

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.
