Setting Sail....


 I first spied it from our deck...

Can you see it there?....

That tiny speck in the middle....


So, I grabbed my fancy camera...

And...

Proceeded to ZOOM in...

A bit at a time...

Until....

I felt like I was one the deck helping with the sails...  

I followed it as far as I could from our deck...

I think the last shot....

Is my favorite...

Thru the Palms... 

I think it came out rather...

Awesome...







Hope you all survived the "blizzard of 2013"....

         Safe and snug in your homes....

          We have been having unbelievable weather...high 70's...

             Lovely and warm for my old bones....

                Even had a dip in our cute pool here....at the condo...

                 It is a small complex...only 5 units....very cosy...

                   Met one couple from New York State...his name is....

                            FORREST!!!! Imagine that!!

  2. Beautiful~ love your zoom! I have a lot of fun with mine!

    We had crisp blue cloudless skies today but it was in the 20's (F). Still sunny and lovely! Can't believe the snow out east!

    Glad you're having such a good time....sounds so relaxing!

  5. Great zoom on your camera. The storm is over, we are all dug out. Monday is supposed to bring lots of rain and +4 Celsius. Crazy weather.
