Biggest Fake Rocks I’ve Ever Seen

DSCN0645

These giant fake rocks are in the port of St. Maarten in the Caribbean.  This port was enhanced after big storms destroyed much of the port infrastructure in 1995.  These composite rocks help to protect the port from further water damage.  Although I admire their ingenuity and practicality, they just aren’t the same as real rocks.  No crags, no dents, no character.  Poor rocks that aren’t rocks.  They’re trying their best though; I guess I should cut them some slack.  😉  Have a wonderful weekend!  Lisa

Name That Towel Animal

A small conundrum for your Tuesday….can you name this towel animal?  He/she/it? was made for us on a cruise a few years ago, and I’m still unsure what it is.

But that other one?  Put me out of my wondering and tell me, please!  Have an awesome day and enjoy any other little critters you may see.  Blessings, Lisa

Boats on the Blue

I love boats, and water, and boats, and water.  Hmmm…I see a recurrent theme there.  🙂  Just put me on a boat, big or small and let me move along on some water, big or small, and I’m a pretty happy girl.  Sun beating down on your face, sea spray blowing on your face, the gentle or not so gentle loll of the wake against the boat…ahh.  One of my very favorite and first memories of boating was with my uncle and cousin when I was young.  They had a motor boat on the Potomac and would take our family out in the summer for a picnic on the shore.  After dropping off the food and older relatives on the beach, my cousin would take us back out on the water, rev up the motor, and we would fly.  He’d hit boat wakes on purpose, and we’d scream happily.  Great memories.  🙂  Here are some of our favorite pictures we’ve taken of boats.  And if you are on the water today, enjoy every minute!  Slainte, Lisa
