Our World Tuesday!!

Time for "Our World" again! This is a wonderful way to find the beauty, the fun, the good and even the bad things about Our World and to share them! Hope you will join us! Click on the link  to go to the Our World site and sign up!!
For those of you who commented earlier, I have saved your comments and they are appreciated, but in trying to clean up the mess Blogger made with my post for Our World, I was unable to post them again. I've saved them in my messages however as they are all important to me.

Thank you as always!!
Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it
into words is all that is necessary.

Jack said...

Your space needle and waterfront image is really good. You don't do shots of the built urban environment very often.

KB said...

Beautiful pics.

Happy New Year from New Zealand.

Kay L. Davies said...

Nice shots, Sylvia. I haven't seen a picture of the Space Needle in a while, and I didn't see it when I went through there in November and again in December.
I love the color at Pier 70.

I would love to be walking along that lovely beach right now Sylvia instead of sweltering in our 40* heat wave .
Love the wise quotes - they help to put life into perspective.p

Great contrasting views! Of course I love the water views and even love the white urban world design by the water! What an incredible tower! Like a spaceship on stilts!

A beautiful place of our world in yours !!
We have very warm temperatures here, like a cold summer day !

Luna Miranda said...

i wonder how high is that cliff in the first photo. love the perspective. beautiful photos of Seattle.

Genie said...

I have lost my beloved comments with Blogger before and it is so upsetting. They are all so special to me. Just the thought that someone I have never met takes the time to share thoughts with me and about my pictures is such a special gift. Thanks so much for all you do with the meme. It does mean a great deal to so many of us. By the way.....so many of your shot I cannot identify other than to say are Pacific Northwest, but that space needle is one I KNOW UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. Everytime I come out, Buddy and I are forced to go up with the grandsons. They love it. Your shot of the city and the needle makes me want to have June hurry up and get here. I swore I would never fly again after our last trip out there....we thought we were going to crash for over 20 minutes...it was awful and I upchucked all over myself...but I cannot stay away. Hope my doctor will drug me to the point I can get on, strap myself in, and fall asleep. Hugs and Happy New Year. genie

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Oh hAPPY NEW YEAR Sylvia and thank you so much for all that you do for all of us bloggers. And for the truly beautiful pictures of truly beautiful Seattle. (And it sounds like this was one time when being slow and behind times to visit my favorities paid off!)

NixBlog said...

Wonderful quotes and captures, as usual!

Kay said...

That is a really dramatic photo of the Space Needle. Wow!

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.
