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

  1. Lovely photos of summer! I can smell the sea and hear the seagulls!

  2. 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.

  3. Beautiful blues indeed! :) Only 4 more days til my birthday! Happy new week!

  4. 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 ;)

    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
