The beginning of our early morning walk along the harbour's edge and toward the crescent beach

to conceal or hide, to keep or hold in the mind, to give shelter to

I love our tiny harbour. Last night when Miss D and I took our bedtime stroll down into the silence of the park we stood on the grass on the hill looking out into the straight and up into the sky. A sky striped turquoise, navy blue and mauve, the stars and the moon had just arrived and all of this incredible beauty was reflected perfectly in a harbour as still as glass. It takes my breath away... every day. I love our harbour.

I'm still thinking about last night's most excellent movie presentation No Country for Old Men Wow ! those darn Coen brothers at it again. Yes ! be warned - it is very violent, and yes it's one of the scariest, creepiest movies I've ever seen ... but a masterpiece indeed. Fantastic photography, incredible dialogue, great acting (Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin & Woody Harrelson), not to mention a wicked plot (based on the book by Cormac McCarthy). And oh boy Javier the freakiest freak ever. This movie's just jumped into our (the cowboy & Susan's) top 10 favourite movie list. And Gee ... um, don't think I'd wanna live (ever) in SouthWest Texas.

  1. I sure would like to take a stroll in that lovely harbour this early morning. The weather has been crazy here the last 24 hours...wind like you wouldn't believe...cold and rainy. STILL love the smell of the rain, though.

    Wishing you a beautiful day!

    Much love to you and the furry gang.

  2. As still as glass... Indeed!
    Susan, I always enjoy your images of the harbor, but I especially love these calming, timeless ones. Wish I could see it in person, walk along that shore -- but this is the next best thing! Thanks for sharing this wonder with us. :)

  3. I love the dots of color with the contrast in that photo. Would be great framed.

  4. the scene where the pitbull is swimming after the guy in the river at night....all you hear is the water....its just a perfect scene. its a great movie.
