Our World

Welcome to Our World, the site that allows us to share the beauty and interests of all of our worlds each week!!  As some of you know, I’ve been “cleaning my photographs home” over the past several days and I found some more favorites that I wanted to share with you today! As many of you know I grew up in a small town in West Texas and had no idea what it would be like to be near any coastal area until I moved to the northwest over twenty years ago!! I was, I am, I will always be enchanted by the water! I have spent a lot of time capturing those amazingly beautiful areas and the skies that seem to accompany them, so I’m going to share a few more with you today. I do so hope that you enjoy them!!

You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.
 William W. Purkey

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
  Mae West

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
Albert Einstein

Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
Mark Twain

Lowell said...

Very nice. And I especially enjoyed the comment from Mark Twain!

I go with the 'everything is a miracle', you knew I would right :) Beautiful images again Sylvia.

Very beautiful pictures of the sky and water. They touch the heart!

Enjoyed learning a little more about you. Lovely coastal scenes, Sylvia! Hmm … a sleepy conscience … I never looked at being guilt free that way. Mark Twain was a dramatic as well as dynamic thinker.

Beautiful water and sky photos and I really like the soft colors in the skies. The quote from Albert Einstein is great! Thanks for sharing.

The PNW coast does have great sunsets. I've always lived near the water, but when I was in the Los Angeles area it was just a stressful drive away. Now that I live in a small town in BC and in a floating cabin on a lake, I'm just steps away. - Margy

Reader Wil said...

Your quotes encourage me to start the day. Thank you. I wish you a great week. BTW at the end of the week you will find me in one of those planes on my way to Australia.

Beautiful Pacific Northwest water shots! It is what makes it wonderful that's for sure!

Thank you as always for your posts, comments, an for hosting both wonderful memes!

I think we all have a secret romance with water (maybe because we are 90% H20). My dream all of my life was to spend my retirement years by water and I am happy to say I am. These are all wonderful pictures and understandably favorites, Sylvia. You must keep cleaning if this is the result:) Be well Sylvia ...

Gorgeousness! I love your pictures. The Pacific NW is so, so beautiful!
I've spent some months in the Pacific Northwest and felt that the sky is prettier there than down south in CA. I wonder if anybody else feels that way. :)

Wonderful skies!!

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.
