Birds, Boats, The Moon on a Sunny Day and a Blue Solo Cup

Out taking pictures again.

Ross says this is a sand dredger.

Here is today's entry from Anna's Diary:

Mon. February 4, 1929
Home until two - Mildred Jan. came and we visited her sister Grace and Mother in Belleville.  Home at 5:30.  Helen C. and Mell C. over at night.  Jewel & Rick, Frances & M. Radio arrived.


  1. Thanks for the small vacation. It was a good one!

  2. Ooooh, some lovely photography! I especially loved the third one and the blue cup photo. Nice post!

  3. Beautiful pictures, it seems so funny that you have gorgeous sunshine whilst we have 6 inches of snow!

  4. I loved the photos, especially the one of the miscreant in the No-Parking zone.  The last time I was on the shore in New Jersey, was in 1972, while on a weekend pass to visit acquaintances in Keyport, while stationed at Fort Dix. 

  5. I love the photographs but you would know that.  The ocean is so important to me and I am getting a kick out of seeing it from the Jersey side of things.  My artist's eye has three favorite photos here - the fourth one down - of the lighthouse - the thing I like about it is the placement of the fence - perfect!  The blue cup has my attention too - not so much the cup but the contrast of plastic cup to detailed shoreline stuff - love the closeups - and, yup, the moon on the February day -- I love your camera -- 
    So much socializing going on for Anna - I would NEVER have made it in her world.
    And I am thinking of you today, on the 5th of the month.  Hugs to you as you move through this anniversary day ---

  6. Thank you for remembering me today.   It means a lot to me that you did.

  7. We have some beautiful beaches down at the jersey shore.  I am not sure you saw the best of them in Keyport, however.  No offense, Keyport. 

  8. Thanks.  I have found that since I got my camera, I see things that I hadn't noticed before.

  9. It sort of felt like a little vacation for me too.
