Absolutely gorgeous. I'm enjoying every single picture. Chris and Josie spent yesterday chopping up the ice rink in the backyard. Maybe if the ice skating rink is gone, spring will FINALLY come!

O, I love days at the beach. Of course we have no beaches here in West Texas...only on vacations.

Beautiful and so very peaceful. You had a good day.

I just love all your pictures! We are taking an extended family vacation this summer to Port Aransas, on the Texas Gulf Coast. It's not the same as Florida but still it's beautiful. Can't wait!

Hi Diane! Have been taking a blogging break so I haven't been around lately. Just popped over to say hi and to let you know I haven't disappeared completely! Busy working on projects and waiting for spring to arrive here in New England! It's still brrrr here, lol! Hope you are doing well and taking time for creativity.
Hugs my dear friend,

Beautiful photos of the ocean and the sailboat. I hope to get down to Florida this summer to visit my best friend that lives down there. She left here yesterday and should be getting home today. I bet she was glad to see the ocean and the beautiful blue sky, since she had been gone since November.
Hope you had a great weekend.
hugs,
Cindy

The ocean pictures are wonderful, Diane. I don't know what my kids would do without the ocean, they love it so. I really like that quote and will pass it on to them.

Have a happy week.

love,

Linda said...

I absolutely love the ocean from the smell, the sound and the tranquility it offers. Your photos are gorgeous!

Lorrie said...

Beautiful. There's nothing like a walk by the sea. I love it. It refreshes my soul.

podso said...

I would echo those thoughts. So nice you can live so close to the ocean. Are your sentiments similar for the mountains? Have a good week!

Doreen@househoneys said...

I love the ocean. The smell, the sound and simply the majesty of it is so awe inspiring. You are so fortunate to live so close to this wonder of Mother Nature, but I think you know that Diane.

The beach there is packed with sea shells! Amazing --- can't see the sand for all the shells!!
Lovely sail boat shots!!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

Lovely pictures!

Deborah Montgomery said...

How beautiful!! The beach sounds so wonderful to me right now, here in chilly, will-Spring-ever-come Michigan! Thanks for stopping by my blog, too. I am now following you.

Pam said...

Great pics! I love the ocean but, unfortunately we're nowhere near it.

Jill said...

Any day around the water would be a perfect day!!

Laura Lane said...

The closest I've been to the ocean is The Gulf off Texas. It was breathtaking. It made God so big and me so small.
Blessings to you!

Looks like a perfect day at the beach - so pretty! Thanks for sharing it with us.
Thanks for stopping by. I took the banner pic few years ago. I went Sat. to see if the wisteria had bloomed yet this year, and it had not, so will check back later this week.

HI Diane! Oh, what lovely snaps of the beach and the gorgeous sea! Just so relaxing! As you know, we have beach and water too but it's not pretty like yours.
Be a sweetie,
