Black & White vs. Color Photo Challenge

I just returned from another outdoor adventure!  I love vacations, but I love coming home even more.  I won’t admit how many photos I took, but this a favorite!  We came upon this old, wooden fishing boat while kayaking.  What a beauty!!  She still has some life in her, I believe.


Do you have a favorite?


Honestly, I can’t decide which one I like best!

Make today a Magical Monday!

The Yellow Row Boat

Weathered – Weekly Photo Challenge

When I read that the Weekly Photo Challenge was “weathered”, the first thought that came to mind was of this small, yellow row boat.


As we were kayaking off of Copper Harbor, at the Northern tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula last summer, we discovered a small abandoned mining island.  During our exploration of this tiny island, we happened upon this pale yellow boat.  Somehow, her sunny yellow boards felt as it they still held life.  And just think of the wonderous copper mining stories she could tell…


There was something about her yellow, weathered paint…With all of the mining ruins we discovered on this deserted island, she stood out above the rest…as if to still be waiting for her next journey, on the waters of Lake Superior.


“We age not by years, but by the stories we share…”
