I love city lights especially in my city but I haven’t ventured out there lately. One of these days . . .
But let me post this one I took in Chesapeake while on vacation. Their landscape is so beautiful and varied, I could live there. It might be boring for city rats but I have always been a country girl although I might work and live in the city.
So yeah you can imagine I can’t wait to retire in the country.
Yes, this is part of a series of pictures about sunset in Chesapeake Bay. See Day 251.
365 Project: Day 253
On a warm Fall day like today, to play in a fountain would be very tempting. I could hardly blame the children.
The sound of the water is like a magical call, begging to be played with.
I love watching the children as they enjoy playing while the mother can’t keep up with the little boy. I say, let the kids be kids. No one hardly does that anymore.

365 Project: Day 252
There was never a time when I was ready for Fall. The Summer is just so colorful and warm to let go that I dread Fall with its short days and rains.
As a gardener, I even have more mixed emotions. For all its famed grandeur it is also the best time to plant for the flowering blooms next Spring. This year though because I planted late my plants are just at its peak. My peppers are loaded with fruits and blooms and so are the eggplants, beans and tomatoes. Can’t win them all, can you?
What more, it is still dark when I wake up. But I know I have to roll out of bed because Pixie keeps trying to wake me up to feed them. And then, like this morning, she’d come back to bed and lay next to me contented as her tummy is finally full.
Got errands to do and water the plants before I leave the house, so here I am, blogging away for a moment.
I hope you enjoy this weekend!
365 Project: Day 251
Next to red, my favorite color is blue. Unlike red where I choose and pick the shades I like, with blue I like them all.
My car is colored blue and my favorite evening dress is blue. And when the sky is blue that means the sun is up and there’s nothing that can cheer you up than a bright sunny day!

365 Project: Day 250
We have planned a picnic at a forest preserve today as a farewell to summer but because they predicted rain the organizers decided that it will be held at the house of my BIL’s youngest sister.
And just as I have written it is sunny, I looked out of the window just now and the fog has mixed in but not for long (as I type). If yesterday’s weather is to be the gauge, rain and sun alternated. So fickle. There is a cold chill in the air though which probably is a reasonable argument that it better be indoor.
And I was hoping a walk in the woods . . .
365 Project: Day 248
The only piers I knew before going to Sandbridge are the ones made for boats and ships. There are none of those here. This is a fishing wharf.
It gets very busy very early as people try to get a choice spot. For sure some of them were regulars as they gave me the eye when I was standing on a side they want. Lucky for them I was just visiting.
One can walk through underneath. The waves in Virginia Beach could be very strong but this hardly show any strain. It is in the open sea constantly battered by winds, current and all the elements.
