Sky Watch #16


Another week of sky watching! One morning the sky was just so pretty, I couldn't resist taking a ride up to Shellbay Avenue and out to the end, by the water. Had it all to myself, too, just me and the gulls, and just kept taking pictures. If you choose to leave a comment, please let me know - do you prefer just one or two pictures? Or should I continue to in
dulge myself by printing several?



This is the pavillion at the very end of Shell Bay Avenue.



Gulls were flying everywhere.































The pier runs far out over the water.



To the east, you can see buildings in Stone Harbor.



When I returned from the end of the pier, I loo
ked across the meadow to the west.



Then I started back up the road, towards hom
e.




Along the road, black birds flew up from the tall grass, and on the other side I saw phragmites. I love to see them glistening in the sun.




















Please visit the Sky Watch site, and say thanks to the team, headed by Tom, who host this meme every week.



I will not be posting a Sky Watch next week. I choose to devote the space to the Blog Blast for Peace on November 6th, when I would normally post Sky Watch.
Stop by if you like. I know that many other Sky Watchers are participating. Perhaps they will do both.

Absolutely beautiful pictures, Bobbi! Love the water, the clouds and the birds!

Daryl said...

LOTS of pix, please, especially when they are as wonderful as these.

Did you see that my glass pumpkins last week were from GrassRoots Gallery in Stone Harbor? Just 'round the corner from the best pizza place ...

Something about the visual design of the pier photo grabs me. I love them all though.

Deborah Godin said...

Wow, these are all wonderful. Good thing I don't have to make up my mind which one I like best. Great shots, Bobbie!

Namnet said...

Bobbie: I beautiful look at a neat walk to the beach and back. You captured some neat skies.

reluctantfarmchik said...

Beautiful - what a lovely day. Thanks for sharing it with us - the clouds and the fresh air, and the gulls. All of them together make for great memories. Nicely captured.

Awesome tour you gave with all those shots!

These are wonderful photos. Such a beautiful place with lovely skies.

Mojo said...

Post as many as you please! Especially when they're this good. I got some killer shots of the fishing pier at the hotel I was staying at that will surface in the coming weeks.

I'm guessing the pier in your shot isn't an "official" fishing pier, but I'm guessing it gets used as such pretty often.

Dear Bobbie, what a nice walk. I think you should follow your heart and your creativity in regards to posting. After all, this is your blog! I like the Phragmites also, though I did not know that is what those plumey grasses are called. Am I guessing correctly? Thanks for stopping by to say HI! I always appreciate your comments!
