Sunday Paddle and Caption Giveaway!

The weatherman said that it would not be as humid today, but I think he lied, lol. It was a beautiful day and a nice breeze on the bay, but still hot and the type of heat that you do not notice until you are done and totally exhausted;)

This weekend was the art festival, but I had a choice and I wanted to paddle, so I decided to go into town to check it out. 

Going into the town's harbor, we were greeted by feathery fowl.

You can see the artist's tents, over 200 artist's displayed their work, this year. 

Way too hot to sit in the coves, it was time to leave and head for the bay. We went out and straight for our town beach, the perfect place to go for a swim.

That helped refresh me, so back out on the bay and down the coast. Blue skies and blue seas, is the only place for me.

Around the next point, the water gets rougher, wind, tides and lots of boat swells, better than a roller coaster.

With high tides, we can go into coves that are normally cut off by land. Usually the island to Bill's right, goes all the way across during low tide.

In the cove we paddled down the river that runs behind the old mill.

And now for the contest photo. As I was getting this one ready, I noticed some funny things, sooooo, give me a caption for the photo and I will put all the names into a drawing and one lucky winner will receive one of my epatterns or booklets. I will draw a name on Tuesday night and announce the winner on my blog post. I will be doing a traveling box, just need to decide on a box size and what I will put in it, so stay tuned for that.

Thanks for the fun.

I think I'm in the "wrong" crowd!

My first thought was a good old Sesame Street song..."one of these things is not like the others, one of these things doesn't belong.."

But who would want to hang out with a cormorant.. they know all the coolest spots!!!

Looks Like I Wore the Wrong Suit!
Looks like it was a fun canoe ride. I would have loved to have been there!

I know this is dumb, not very good at this,
the gull says, Yikes, I am at the bottom of the pecking order or I am caught between a rock and a hard place.
I always get jealous when I see you out on the water like that. lol So cool!

Maybe it looks like ice, but it's not!
Great pics.

Ronnie said...

I couldn't resist, I have another one.
Is this the "in" crowd?
