Silver Sea in the Morning



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Betsy and I just got back from a week at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. The weather was just about perfect all the time we were there, but one morning started out with overcast skies. I captured the picture above from the balcony of a room. I like the way the water around the pier appeared to have a silver sheen as it was lighted by the sun peeking through the clouds.

I just had to enlarge this one, George! You have captured a sea of molten silver! Now if you can just turn the moon into white chocolate...

if I am not mistaken, this is your second time on that beach. I've seen wonderful pictures you guys took before. It's so wonderful.

Hope you had a great vacation.
We've been tackling the Nashville team and your dream might come true George:)
We might lose to them and if not to them, then to the next guys, either Detroit or San Jose because of all the injuries we have.
Men just don't seem to get it when you tell them to watch themselves
playing these games.
It's all up in the air right now.
:) The view of the water is just plain delightful!
