The water is such a pretty blue...but so cold!
I still have about that many pictures of my trip to see the tall ships left to go through too

As soon I saw the water in your photo Georgian Bay popped into my mind. The water there is always crystal clear.

Melanie said...

Thanks for following! Well, that water has amazing clarity and splendid beauty. But Brrr. Kids are so tough.

I know how it feels to come back from vacation (or in my case any roadtrip, since I guess I'm on a permanent vacation)....the mixed blessing of digital photography is being able to take zillions of photos.

Beep is adorable in that beautiful water and I can well believe it is cold. Were you the only one who got the bug bites? That usually happens to me and nobody else.

That water looks crystal clear! Beautiful shots of your granddaughter. Yikes, I'd hate to go through 1800 photos. Good luck!

Beautiful pics..I am your LU NB from Random 5.

Valerie said...

Sparkling images Karen - doubtless there were many special memories created during your Grand-daughter's visit! The crystal clear water is superb. Thanks for sharing (and for dropping by my blog again) Happy weekend.

Terri Buster said...

Your grand is such a cutie! And the bay is awesome! I would love to see that.

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

Those are awesome photos ... the water is so clear.

Stewart M said...

That water looks great - I think cold is not an idea that kids really understand! Both of mine would rather freeze than get out of the water!
