I love each of those photos.
Deep blue water, and wonderful back ground.

The light in the third photo is just amazing JM. I really like the way it is shining on the water and that lighthouse with the blue stripes going around it is very pretty. Also the light coming through the clouds behind it--perfect!

You forgot to point out your boat there at the marina. I'm all ready for my ride, hurry up! I'd say your weather has cleared up and you are back in paradise.

Gorgeous photos. So picturesque. The photos make me want to go out on the water for an adventure. Glad you liked the Chihuly yesterday. I have a cactus up today on my site. I know how much you like cacti. BTW, do you travel for work or pleasure or are you able to work on the road so it allows you to take more trips. As you know we also like to travel as much as we can, and we are often able to work while traveling in other countries. It helps when the time zones are very different so we can handle work from afar.

Just beautiful and so very peaceful here! I love the marina shots!

Lovely shots. My guess is that if you returned to these same places on a warm weekend afternoon, there would not be as many boats in the harbor, as people would be enjoying the ocean.

Virginia, gladly the weather is not so bad! We are having a little bit of sunshine, a little bit of rain, but it's cloudy most of the time.

Yes David, you're right! It's winter, the marina looks full, nobody's sailing.

Beautiful photos! I'd love to take one of those boats out for sail up the coast. Maybe in summer, though.
