Lone Red Sail......

 A refreshing swim in the Northwest Arm, off Point Pleasant Park, again.
 The sailboats were out in full swing today....this one had a nice lean to it.
 I saw this lone red sail which obviously stood out among all the white sails.
 These little fellers reminded Jim of little pieces of seaglass.
 This optical illusion makes it seem like no one is paying any attention to their space.
 I watched with trepidation.
 More boats kept coming by, at phenomenal speed and tacking dexterity...
 It truly was a beautiful day for all those lucky people out on the water.
This boat just didn't seem to fit in....they were looking for people to join a huge party.
Guess dogs weren't on the guest list.
This water really has been cleaned up in the passed few years.
I really wouldn't want to describe what used to be floating here.
The guys let me swim now because they know how much time and money
has gone into cleaning up the harbour.
Thank you City of Halifax for putting the harbour first.

  1. Look at that new header shot. Were you in a movie? As usual, you were swimming in a very beautiful spot. We used to have a sailboat...such fun.

  2. Looks like a good swim. I'm very encouraged by the number of rivers, lakes and streams that are being cleaned up. There's more to do, but I think a good start has been made.

  3. Hi Y'all!

    Sophie, in that first shot I was thinkin' you were the "red sail"...surprise, surprise...there was a REAL red sail. In the second shot it looks like a freighter on the horizon.

    Y'all come by now,

  4. What a pretty red sail--where's the sunset? :)
    I know what you mean about not being allowed to swim in certain waters. I won't take Sage near the Willamette.

    Love your new header! That's the one thing I miss with the theme I currently use.

    It's great to see so many of our water ways being cleaned up! It's also great to see you enjoying them, Sophie! ^5!

  8. Your harbor is lovely, Sophie. They probably cleaned it up just for you - and Mr. Orange... ;-)

  9. That boat with the red sail is really neat! I'm glad they're cleaning up the harbor. Hopefully you'll be able to swim there for a long time to come!

  11. I can't believe the party boat left you behind. Don't they know that Labradoodles love to have fun?

  12. What a lovely day for a swim! There sure is a lot of boaters, taking advantage of the breeze and good day.

    Your new header is different! I won't ask how Ron did that, I wouldn't understand anyway and no fancy software here.

    Have a great day, Sophie and Ron!

  13. What a gorgeous day on the water! Love the red sail! And wouldn't mind having that party boat here in Charleston! No tour boats allow dogs here and we don't have our own!
