Our World -- Winter at the Harbor

Still major blogging problems, so forgive the format???  These were taken several years ago in January in Seattle at my favorite place -- the harbor that was only a short drive from the house . I hope you enjoy a look back!!

I find myself reading this quote frequently these days!!!

Resolve to keep happy and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.--Helen Keller

I like that quote about resolving to be joyful. I had blogger problems at the start of the New Year and after trying to make it right in a zillion different ways it all got resolved on its own eventually. I confess I was NOT joyful throughout that experience. :)

Lovely views Sylvia, and a very appropriate quote!

Lovely collage!

Kay said...

Really weird. Your blog kept shrinking and enlarging. I've never seen that happening before. I thought something was wrong with my brain or eyes at first. Sorry about all your blog problems, Sylvia. I'm hoping things fix themselves this week.

Seattle and its environs are so beautiful! Love the water and the boats.

Thanks for visiting The Villages and your nice comment. So sorry you're still having blogging problems. I'll help if I can.

Hi Sylvia - Hope your internet problems are soon resolved. I love that you're the "youngest Billionaire!" You could buy your own internet company!

I'd like to keep that quote in mind and heart.

Sorry to hear you are having woes with blogger.

Beautiful collage, Sylvia, as always. I am still in Australia. My daughter's computer is not working, so she took me to the library of Cooktown. Have a great day.

A lovely collage!

These are beautiful pictures of the harbor. I hope your Blogger problems are soon a thing of the past.

A beautiful look back indeed, Sylvia - photos from your time in the Seattle area are always welcome. And what better person for that quote than Helen Keller? I recently read her autobiography on my Nook, it was an inspiring read.

I wonder if your formatting difficulties are related to the snowflakes you have drifting down? At least when I view your page, they make it change size horizontally, sometimes causing a scroll bar to appear and disappear...

Beautiful scenes.

I love your quote.

ladyfi said...

That is a wonderful quote. And what lovely pictures.

Pat Tillett said...

How awesome to have such beautiful scenery so close to home!
You took full advantage of it with your great photos!

I love those mountain snow caps, if you're like me who hasn't experienced winter, these views are wonderful. I've seen snowcaps only in Turkey and once when our plane passed on top of Italy.

Nice pictures and words.

No sunburn as yet - it just means I can't stay out too long.

When snorkelling this evening after a 110+ degree day - wonderful!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Great quote, Sylvia. I wish EVERYONE had your positive attitude. :) Hang in there with Blogger. Lots of people are having problems, which I'm sure will eventually be fixed.

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.
