Break break break


Folks, try as I might to catch up, I  am still 9 posts behind.  And, oooh, they are humdingers … from learning about UFOs, to meeting an artist in her 80’s who’s built a boat and will be sailing to Paradise later in August, to strolling through a weird, wacky and whimsical forest  … and much more.

They will pop into view. But first, Barrie and I head to Tangiers tomorrow with our canoe to paddle in 100 islands for a few days. I am operating on fumes and need some time to decompress. And reflect. And sleep. And simply have my bum in a canoe.

I’ll be back with Day 23 on August 7th.

ps: Do you have any idea what the above photo is? It was part of Day 23.  Here’s another one below.

    The photos are incredible! Filtered? Enjoy your “bum in a canoe” days. 🙂

      Just back Rose-Marie … wondeful “bum-in-canoe” days! Photos not filtered. Although I did superimpose three identical shots taken rapidly over each other in a program called Photomatix, which gives a high dynamic range (HDR) photo. These were of the water reflections on fishing boats.

    Gorgeous photos. I’d guess they are the sides of boats in the water.

      Yup! Bang on Jennie. Love the dance and interplay between water and wood.

    Looks to me like the reflection of the water’s ripples
    on the side of the Nova Star.

      Close Linda! Reflections on the side of fishing boats in Port Latour. I must look at Nova Star sometime. Imagine there are some great photo ops there!
