Quiet on the Blog





Quiet on the Blog


seacoast harbor in the summer

 

It has been a bit quiet around all my blogs lately.


The summer has been a hot and busy one.


And we are another year older and don't move as fast as we used to - especially in the humid heat.


It sometimes takes twice as long to do something as it used to.


But we have been enjoying this time of the year - a swim at the lake each afternoon has become a welcome ritual.


The bones and joints sure appreciate the weightlessness that only being in the water can bring.


Hope you all are finding a way to enjoy this summer season too!

ABC Wednesday - Z is for Zone





Z is for Zone..........



 a construction zone beside a bridge

 

This construction zone has been this way now for over two years.


There used to be a walkway beside the ocean that went under these two bridges.


My boys have spent much time in the past fishing from this spot.


Of course, it is barely recognizable now.


The walkway is blocked off, as one can see by these signs - it is only accessible to the construction crew.


It will be interesting to see how this whole project turns out .


Hopefully it will still be available for walking and fishing when it is someday complete.

ABC Wednesday - Y is for Yankee





Y is for Yankee..........



 fireworks against a night sky

 

I think I have used this word before for "Y", but it is just perfect for today.

Today is Independence Day in the US - a celebration of our country's birthday.

It was in 1776 that the we won our freedom from England.

 We were known as the "Yankees" and we defeated the "British" during the Revolutionary War.

Fireworks, cookouts, and parades are celebrated in many towns, large and small, across the United States.

Happy July 4th to my readers - keep safe as you enjoy this holiday!
