All at Sea





This is Bean Rock lighthouse 
which has been guiding ships
into Auckland harbour since 1871!
It sits on top of a crop of rocks visible at low tide.




My husband sorting rigging on board 
on a magnificent summer's day
in the Bay of Islands.





Johnathan Livingston Seagull and friends.

I'm joining Sally for Blue Monday


Thank you for visiting and have a happy week
only eight more days and it will be March!

Take care and
be kind to one another

à bientôt


Shane

I love the sea and seeing the yachts sailing, but that's as far it goes for me, I don't have good sea legs , when we lived by the coast in England, I left the sailing to Mr France and our son. Lovely photos. Thanks for sharing them.

What an interesting lighthouse. Surprising that it's been standing for so long as it looks rather frail. Beautiful skyline shot. I remember reading Jonathon Livingston Seagull when I was very young. I often think of that book when I see seagulls flying too ;)

My dear Shane,

I love those seaside photos and I love lighthouses since my childhood, when I lived in Turkey nearby a lighthouse, you know.
I can smell the salt on my lips, the silky wind in my hair and the sun on my skin when I watch your photos. I wish I could be there. Are you sailing too?
Wish you lazy summer days.
Alle the best for you from Barbara

Pretty pictures of the sea, Shane, especially the lighthouse one. I got a chance to see the ocean when I visited Jess' home in November. The ocean is always a lovely place to visit, always so peaceful.
