I’ve always had a thing for boat bows, especially reflections of bows in the water. Shelter Cove Marina is of course full of boat bows. Other boat parts, too! Here are a few from our evening there that I found notable.
Spent some time walking around the harbor at Shelter Cove this evening. An opportunity presented itself…others as well but this is one. The processing is perhaps a bit heavy but it seems to be none the worse for it. 😉
Sometimes the fishing trawlers come close enough to shore to get a decent photo. This particular one had attracted quite a following, hoping for a chance to catch some discards.
Taken this evening, the night after the full moon!
It may be a dicey time to try and get out to other parts of the country, but Kathy & I are fixin’ to get back on the road again. We’ll be headed to Ohio and beyond for a few days. So I’m going to end the post-a-day I’ve been doing and concentrate on taking photos and spending time with family and friends. You may see an occasional postcard from time to time.
One thing I did do, for anyone who is interested, is post a gallery of photos from our recent trip to the beach: 2020-06 Hilton Head
The ominous sounding Sahara Dust Cloud passed through Charlotte over the last few days, including (I guess) today. Yesterday afternoon was really hazy and smoky-looking, but it didn’t present the vibrant sunset that had been predicted. Supposedly the sunset on Friday was pretty colorful, but that might or might not have been a result of the dust. I was inside a restaurant having dinner anyway, so I can’t say. Things look pretty clear outside now, dust-wise, although it is pretty cloudy. The afternoon will show if there is any remaining dust in the air, and an air quality alert is in effect until midnight.
We survived our first mask outing last evening, not that we expected anything different. We went to a local seafood place with some friends/neighbors and had a nice time. It was only our second meal out from home, and it was nice to “test the waters” some more. One thing’s for sure – it really clarifies the difference between cooking and eating at home and restaurant food, especially in terms of price and portion sizes. It’s a reminder to keep the restaurant outings to a minimum!
I have four of these little vignettes that I’m planning to post through Tuesday – still drift fences (sorry) but a slightly different view – then I plan to end the post-a-day routine. It’s been fun but it’s time for a break, so I’ll get back to my not-quite-daily occasional posts. 😉
Read on another blog earlier today:
“Wearing a mask is NOT a political statement. It’s an I.Q. Test.”
Needless to say, that’s a little harsh. Until now I’ve resisted the mask thing, but now our Guv’nor says we’re going to have to wear them for a while. Despite my resistance I do believe in the science. I’m just…stubborn. Fortunately we don’t go too many places where it’s an issue, so it won’t have a huge effect. Interesting how it’s easier to accept something when you’ve been told you need to do it, instead of just having it “recommended.”
Photo is another one of those irresistible drift fences on the beach. Sigh…. 😉
Kathy & I have caught up from being at the beach last week and having the boys over for dinner yesterday. I didn’t take any photos – the camera stayed in the closed. I couldn’t think of anything useful to say today, so I decided just share a quiet photo from the beach.
We’re headed back to our home base today, after a refreshing week at the beach. A little photography, lots of sun, sand and surf, and even a few dinners out made for a nice break from all the hoopla at home. It sounds like we’re returning home for the possibility of a bit more pandemonium, but after a little break it will hopefully be easier to bear.
With luck we’ll be headed out again in a couple of weeks for Ohio and perhaps beyond. We’ll see what develops during that time. Trying not to look farther ahead than the next journey!
