Welcome back Kate!
This photo with its shimmering water is gorgeous. And what a nice warm feeling when we still have snow here.
Kate, I have launched a little words contest on my blog. All the answers will be published next week. You are very welcome to participate if you wish.

Are you sure you wish to go back "home"? Beautiful place, nice weather, now also well connected again to the outer world...

With a view like that it must be difficult to even want to fix interent problems. great photo.

Mo said...

Thanks for the suggestion in cropping. I think you are right. Will play around with it a little more for my own use.

That's such a great shot, Kate. Wonderful. :)

I just noticed I forgot to add a (lovely) mural to the post I published today so I updated it. I know you like murals so
here it is.

Denton said...

Love how you captured the sun on the tops of each wave ... I started to say I'm envious of your view but really I'm more happy for you than envious. We all deserve such a wonderful view ... Thanks for sharing your view with all of us.

"I'm one of those linguistically challenged gringas."

No, you are not. Give it a bit more time. I am sure you are doing much better than you give yourself credit for.

Re: my memory, it ain't that good! We all know that you, Mo, Sonia, George, Southern Heart and Olivier have a penchant for murals! :D

raf said...

just a wild guess, at this time of the year, this a little better than Minn, right?? :)

and the best part is that You can still enjoy it for a few weeks!

Hope You can come back soon

Kate, I am so happy for you! It sounds like you are enjoying your stay. The pictures are all wonderful and your comments make me long to be there. Maybe I can sneak in Jim's suitcase when he returns?!

Southern Heart said...

What a wonderful photo...I love the sparkling water. I'm glad that you are enjoying living in such a beautiful place. It's fun to enjoy it through your eyes.

Sonia said...

Just wonderful photo!

Kim said...

Kate, You've captured that impossible to catch intense sparkle of the sea. Thank you for sharing it with us. I makes me feel happy just to see it shimmer. I'm right back on the beach of my youth with the sun dancing on the waves. Ah. . .a brief vacation has done me good!

I'll share one of my favorite song lyrics with you, written by Bruce Cockburn:
all the diamonds in this world
that mean anything to me
are conjured up by wind and sunlight
sparkling on the sea

Happy Friday in paradise!
