When I saw this on the rocks in a cove somewhere near Rockland Maine, I had a shiver me timbers moment for sure. A couple actually. I mean, WHO was that crawling up the rocks??? I really had to look twice to make sure this thing wasn’t alive!
Too freaky not to shoot right?
A little fun for Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge – Week #43
Yesterday, my Mother and I spent the day driving north and west here in Virginia, to capture some of the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains before winter comes.
This was a favorite pastime of my father’s and mine, as we would spend hours driving the dirt roads of Vermont, stopping here and there to snap a photo or two. Loving what the land offered our souls but loving more, our time together. He’s been gone 8 months now…but it still feels like…Yesterday.
I’m glad my Mother appreciates and allows me to side track us any time we are out, and yesterday was no exception. But it’s impossible to do without thinking about Dad and remembering all of our…Yesterdays.
Yesterday. Just the word brings to mind the song, doesn’t it? The problem is, the original lyrics don’t fit my yesterday, so maybe I can come up with some that will, could, maybe, fit into my…Yesterday
Yesterday All the clouds just seemed to melt away So the sun could shine and birds could play Oh how I loved my yesterday
Suddenly, I’m not standing where I used to be I’m outside so I can truly see What yesterday did share with me
Why tears start to flow? I don’t know, it’s just that way Dad flashed through my mind How I long for yesterday
Yesterday He’d have loved this simple day away It was how we used to spend these days Oh, just to have one yesterday
Why he had to go? I don’t know, he couldn’t stay But I knew he was there He’s in all my yesterdays
Yesterday Love came through in such a special way As I stood before what he would say Was prove he’s never gone away
Alisa atWhere’s my backpackhas a travel photo challenge, and as this appears to be my new hobby (challenges), I thought I’d jump into this one.
When I first saw the theme, I thought of letters. You know, snail mail letters, like this one I received from one of the busiest blogger/vloggers I know! My friendPaula Actonin the UK. She even wax sealed it for me like the blogging Queen she is!
But on seeing the entries, I realize most are of letters.
Words. Letters. You know, like the alphabet.
And boy, do I have those!!!
So many in face, I think I’ll collage them to save space and you from becoming insanely bored! 🙂
1.) The world of words being a New England (and the Bal’more O’s of course) sports fan
2.) The words of the places I love to eat, drink, and be mary (oops) merry
3.) Advertising is all about letters making words that drive us to WANT, NEED, CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT! And I saw a story in this group…can you?(Not to worry…all in fun. I LOVE ooze and wine!)
4.) Famous words that drew me to interesting places while in London
5.) And lastly (I know what you’re thinking…phew right?) But, lastly some local favs
These letters may not be the same as writing or receiving a letter…but as letters go…these’ll do nicely!
