I saw three ships come sailing in...

I headed up to Anacortes, WA on Sunday to take some photos of an adorable baby and got there earlier than I'd expected so my sister and I spent some time hanging out in the "downtown area"... taking some photos on the waterfront and running back to the car because it was biting cold... We pretended like we owned one of the boats and picked out which one we liked best. I chose the bright yellow one named "The Wild Rumpus" ("Let the wild rumpus begin!!" - Where the Wild Things Are) but unfortunately it is not pictured here... My heated seats were calling me.

  1. In the summer we went to Anacortes from Bellingham with our boat to spend the night. It is a fun place to walk the docks and boat watch. - Margy

  2. these are beautiful, being near water always brings me peace

  3. Oh water does something to my soul. So soothing.

    Merry Christmas, Christina. Totally enjoy the pics you create.

  4. It looks cold too. Nice shots. Merry Christmas!

  5. Funny, I love boats and the water, but don't like to be on them, even big ferry boats make me a bit nervous at!

  6. What gorgeous shots.

  7. those are beautiful photos! thanks for sharing them :) xx

  8. Love the second pic with the big poles!

  9. I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting my comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

    The magical elves that constitute my staff have demonstrated their lack of respect in either not showing up for work at all, or those that have all seem a little worse for wear (if you catch my drift). All they seem to do is sit around smoking cigarettes that, frankly, smell funny. In addition, they play cards and tell dirty jokes rather than do their jobs! Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape.

    I now have my two sons pulling the sleigh, but they are struggling. I’ve been told that it’s a big ask for a three and five year old, but I made it this far with a couple of mangy chooks, an arthritic wallaby and three peculiar wombats! Unfortunately, we lost all bar one wombat over Mumbai (and the sole survivor is exhibiting clear signs of PTSD).

    Anyway, all the way down here at the bottom of the world (A.K.A. Tasmania), and from myself, Jen, Henry and Ezra, please have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus/Ashura and a happy New Year!

    I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your naan/ prawn cocktails/ currywurst are all as tasty as can be!


Thanks for stopping by!!
