Good grief! I just realized that I never 'visited' you from you ABC Weds visit!! I don't think I saw your link on the ABC roster and every time I sat down at the computer, I'd get sidetracked!
Anyway, I love that photo with the sunset and the sailboats-just gorgeous!!
Getting geared up for SSS tomorrow which should be challenging (again) to post since I'm also at an all day conference.
Hoping your are having a loverly week!

Beautiful shots. And the colour of the water in the first shot is amazing. It looks like sand!

Thank you for watching my son's drumming. I was thrilled to read about your son too! Holding a position like that and still so passionate about drumming!!

Genie said...

Another one of your beautiful series of shots accompanied by great quotes. You get the prize for the best quotes of all the bloggers I visit :-) That first shot brings back memories of views of Mt. Baker and Mr. Ranier. I felt lucky this year. All the little sailboats are so pretty on the water. genie

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.
