Swim time!

One of the dogs’ favourite places for a swim

Is the jetty next to the floating sauna on our local lake.

I like it too —

Because of all the photo opportunities it gives!

Jetty.jpg

It’s a peaceful place in the early mornings,

Where you can meditate on clouds and their reflections.

(Photos taken in early May.)

Strawberry crush

A hot sunset

Sizzles over the lake.

A mother duck and her babies swim by.

Peace descends on the water

In the form of strawberry crush.

Peaceful in pink

The view from our balcony in Dubrovnik, Croatia,

Was stunning:

We could see the Old Town and

Its massive walls (dating back to the 16th century),

As well as the Island of Lokrum

And a peaceful pink sunset over the bay.

When the sun goes down

When the sun goes down,

So do I:

Down 160 steps from the guesthouse

To the beach in Herceg Novi, Montenegro

To enjoy the dazzling sunset —

Time for contemplation of beauty.

Beautiful Kotor Bay

The Bay of Boka (also known as the Bay of Kotor) stretches and zigzags

Around the Adriatic coast in Montenegro.

(Photos taken from a moving bus.)

Blue.jpg

The water is crystalline blue

And dazzling aquamarine.

Did you know that this is the

Southernmost fjord in Europe? (I didn’t.)

The bay around Perast has some delightful islands —

Perfect for a wedding shoot!

And can you imagine playing water polo

Surrounded by majestic mountains?

You guess right – I fell in love with Montenegro!

Summer sweets

I haven’t had time to upload and go through my holiday photos yet,

So thought I’d share what makes summer so special.

Swan.jpg

It can be a stunning swan sunset,

Or a bee pollinating a poppy.

It is the discovery

Of flowers wearing wigs,

Wigs.jpg

And the pink fireworks

Of an onion flower.

Home is where the heart is

I had a wonderful time away —

But there is something special about coming home to familiar sights.

Home is where the heart (or sunset) is.

Blue-tiful

First off – a HUGE sorry for not clicking the right buttons for Our World so that the linky wasn’t available last week. But don’t worry – the meme is up and running as normal now – will open at the normal time!

Had a lovely time in Montenegro – it was so beautiful! Work and deadlines tomorrow so I’m just posting a photo I snapped with my mobile phone from the bus window.

(I probably won’t have time to visit you though due to crazy work load!)

For more beautiful blues, please go to: Our World. (Yes – it WILL be working!)

Peaceful in pink

I’m going away to Montenegro and Croatia with the kids for a week —

To see new horizons and sights.

Peaceful horizon.jpg

In the meantime, I leave you with

A pretty, pink sunset down at the lake.

(I won’t be around to comment on your blogs for about ten days.

But don’t worry, Our World will be up and running as normal!)

Postcards from London

My hotel in London was right opposite the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.

Here’s Tower Bridge with elegant accents of blue.

Towerwithblue.jpg

It was cloudy for almost all of my visit –

But I did manage one pink morning (snapped on my mobile phone).

MorningTower.jpg

Parts of the old Roman wall of London

Are visible every now and then.

(I like the way the old stone is reflected in the modern glass on the left.)

One late evening saw us in Chinatown

Under red flags and a popcorn-cloud sky.
