The Sea

“The Sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”  Jacques Cousteau

At the beach even the overcast skies have a special glow about them. Had a fabulous time catching up with family and friends at the beach, not so much photo taking but lots of laughs to add sparkle to the day.   Click the link to Sky Watch Friday to see what bloggers from all over have found in their sky to share this week.
Adding this salt washed heart to Clytie’s Random Hearts blog party found on an early morning walk where the reflected light played all kinds of fun games with color.
True North is an important tool for mariners and a popular theme for artists seeking their muse and direction.  Long distance travel and sitting in airplanes for a few days gave me lots of time to consider who I want to grow up to be and what remains as important in life.
