thanks to Sue from Weekly Prompts for hosting this week’s colour challenge https://weeklyprompts.com/2022/06/04/weekly-prompts-colour-challenge-nautical-blue/

What is nautical blue? According to some sites on the internet it is the following:

There are a surprising number of colours that can be considered nautical. Some of the most popular include deep blue, navy, red, black, white, turquoise, sand or khaki, brick, cream, sea green, sky blue, yellow, shades of gray, and more.

Sue is allowing us to interpret the colour nautical blue as we please. Here is my interpretation of nautical blue.

Share Your Desktop – February 15, 2022

thanks to Clare for hosting Share Your Desktop https://clarehoran.com/2022/01/16/share-your-desktop-january-2022/

I’m not sure how often I will participate in this challenge because I haven’t changed my desktop for at least a couple of years. Maybe I should start doing that but I love this photo of Big Sand Bay on Christian Island.

BTW I did change the photo on my desktop just now.

Pull Up a Seat Photo Challenge – End of Summer

….thanks to Xingfu Mama for hosting Pull Up a Seat Photo Challenge https://xingfumama.blog/2021/09/24/pull-up-a-seat-photo-challenge-2021-week-39/

After the long weekend at the end of the summer season the beach chairs are folded and stacked but not yet put away. Many of us hope to get up to our cottages a couple more times before the Thanksgiving weekend when the season finally ends and the cottages are cleaned out, bedding is stored away, the water is drained from the pipes, BBQs are covered, canned goods are brought home so they don’t freeze over the winter and everything on the beach is returned to the cottage and put into storage.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson
