Water Tower ~ Scepter ~

When I first discovered Sky Watch Friday I was thrilled because I always have my eye on the sky. I used to call interesting skies "painter skies" when they looked fake or something a artist would paint. Anyway we were driving home from Sarasota Pavilion going through the back way, and I saw the water tower with the clouds behind it. (it kind of looks like a scepter) It looked so cool I had to go home and get my camera. When I got back I parked my car so I wouldn't have to drive and shoot (a photo). I did have to stand in the middle of the road to get the shot that I saw when I was driving by. As I was walking back to my car this guy pulls in the parking spot next to me... Now you have to understand that I parked way at the end of the lot and this was not the main thoroughfare it was the back way. He leans out and asks me what I was taking a picture you see a bird? Yes, I said...that's it a bird! He said where? is it still there? I don't see it? Of all times for someone to actually stop and ask... I had to laugh...Yes, it must of flown away! :D When I saw the photo it just didn't capture the unusual look that I saw when I saw it in person with my own eyes! But here it is anyway! This and many more at Sky Watch Friday is for all of you with your eyes in the skies. Enjoy!

Clouds like a down comforter ~ Sky Watch Friday

It started out a beautiful day in the intercoastal waterway, perfect for a boat ride....then the clouds came in...

Not big threatening clouds, but when I was sitting in the bow of the boat I looked up and saw a solid fluffy blanket...

This is the way it ended up on the way back, but it was still a fun boat ride.

Added to Sky Watch Friday.

Watery Wednesday ~ Water Marks

There was actually water trickling over this, but you can't really see it...

This is what I saw after the first pics were taken. I was at the summer beach runs...

...a different day, and different marks...

...different view from looking up after taking the photo...

...and the marks that water left behind.

When you live in a beach get a lot of beach shots! Check it out here to see many more Watery Wednesday photos from all over the world, but not on Mars, because there is no water on Mars!

Siesta Beach ~ Watery Wednesday

Siesta beach is a white sand beach that is often voted as one of the top beaches in the United States. I think we are number 2 this year. The sand is soft and powdery, and I often have to explain that it is white sand and not snow, especially this time of year. It's Spring Break for us and we usually don't hit the beach this time of year unless we go very early. It is just minutes from our house.

I like to get the life guard stands often in my photos. If you have been on my blog before you will see many different ones posted here. The life guard is ready for the day ahead!

Yoga on the beach anyone?! You have to get here early!

I am adding this to Watery Wednesday check it out and see more watery photos from around the world!
