An unusually high tide tonight -- while awaiting
dinner prepared by our houseguest Mr. Beast,
Paul and I took off on a jaunt around the cove
to see firsthand the high waters,
and what really captured our attention
were the underwater flowers:

And this exotic jelly fish:

The sun was shining -- briefly -- and all the colors
were at their most intense.

Upon our return, I saw that my sheets
had become tangled in the gorse --

And about 30 minutes later, the rains began
once again, and I ran out in the middle of dinner
to untangle the sheets from the line, only for the wind
to tangle them about me during the unpinning:
An Apparition In White.

(And now they are comfortably tumbling
in the luxury of our electric dryer.)


  1. Those photos of the sea plant life are outstanding.

  2. I didn't know I was married to Claude Monet's great-great granddaughter! -K.

  3. As JH said.

    At this moment I'm thinking your tidal photos are the very best of what you do.

    I'll retain this opinion until the next time when it is something else that are your very best.

    But I am enthralled by the colors and compositions.

    Love, C.

  4. Foxessa, it was the luck of the tide, is all.
