Pink on the Horizon

 It's truly amazing how Mother Nature's gift of light.... 
 allows me to espy Mr. O in a sea of blue 
 floating aimlessly with the current...
 as I submarine my way slowly and deftly into position....
 Noticing the brightly coloured sails on the horizon...
 can't distract me from my goal...
 snatch and turn
 the gorgeous pink sail looms precariously on the rocks...
 It would seem to be
 melting like butter and disappearing around the corner.
 My success  is always acknowledged by my guys
 as I pull myself from the water.
 Today...the sails appear to be ethereal, gossamer and transparent
 for the angle of the light illuminates the sailcloth....
 as we round the bend in the road at Point pleasant Park 
where I meet Jim sauntering and catching up to us,
after a successful photo shoot nearby.

    1. That's what we think sometimes when she starts heading out....as a pup she'd didn't do this but now that she's 5.5 yrs she's a daredevil!

    You have really good eyes, Miss Sophie. I couldn't see Mr. Orangie in the first photo until I saw it in the second. But you were right on the ball, as they say.
