Sky Watch #11



Today I am going back to the bay. I live only a few blocks from Delaware Bay, and I do love its many moods and changes. The day I took these pictures was clear and sunny, and the sky was pretty.

First I looked to the south. There were a couple of Hobi Cats drawn up onto the beach in back of one of the houses.



Then I looked to the north. I love the curve of the shore at this spot. The sky had an entirely different appearance in this direction.



As I left the beach, I noticed the sky again, over the tops of the trees.



The summer months almost always bring us beautiful skies, no matter if it is a sunny day or if a storm is coming - the sky is always beautiful to me.


Please stop at the Sky Watch site and thank Tom, Sandy, Imac and Klaus for their help in bringing these pictures to us.

I'm really pleased I dropped in from Oz Bobbie. I enjoyed your site from the Machado quote in the header right through.
Nature, politics and people - the way to go!
Thank you.

The sky is always beautiful to me too! No matter what nature's moods may be! And I love how, on a beach, you can look in different directions and see totally different skyscapes!

Lovely pics!

Tranny Head said...

That DOES look so placid. I'm picturing my kid running down the beach, trying to eat sand and shells and totally destroying the peace and quiet!

SandyCarlson said...

I love that view Bobbie! Such peace and continuity come through. I am sure all will be well.

Very nice collection, Bobbie. I am particularly drawn to the middle one. There's something about that curve of beach that is very appealing.

Oh I do love the curved beach leading to the whatever building. By rights it should br a light house.

Lily Hydrangea said...

That house on the beach really is right on the beach! How does it survive?!

Kathiesbirds said...

Hi Bobbie, thanks for sharing the lovely, peaceful photos with us. We are all drawn to various places and at certain times. I think it draws out the beauty from inside of us.

Looks gorgeous - but I bet it can be pretty wild.
