Sissy loves it when there's water in the ditch

Snapshots - A Rare Theme

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

I've collected a few shots from various hikes around marinas, where I've clicked some fun boat names. So you get them today.

Many hobbies can do that. 

Boat owners have told me boats are a well to dump your money in, never to be seen again. 

Okay...not a name...this one just slipped in.

Wimsey is always good.

This was one hot boat. 

I guess their Sunday outings kept them sane. 

Wait for it. 

All of my hobbies keep me away from there. 

I bet they keep a cooler full of margaritas. 

This is my kind of ethereal.

Snapshots - The Causeway.

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

More cloud-enjoying from the top of the causeway pedestrian. 

Lookie loo. I plane. "De plane. De plane."

Oh. A pretty.

Don't ask me what it is. 

But so pretty. 

 I love the top knots. Like Mom like Sissy. 

Looks cool. I mean, really, in temperature. I'm steaming hot on my bicycle. 

No one's looking. Suppose the keys are in them.

I could stand a cool one under a tiki hut. 

Or a corn dog. Dang, I'm hungry now.

Sunday Safari - Tampa River Walk

Greetings from the Hermit Writer. A new section of the River Walk opened recently...so I went a-safari-ing. (From May 31)

Artsy chair outside the cafe

I love the color of the cogs

Cool door

I stopped to talk with this lady, but she seemed preoccupied.

Shouldn't the water be below the boat?

High heels prove women are superior. What man could wear those things? (Would want to?)

I like colorful doodads of all sorts.

Gratuitous photo of babes in a boat getting splashed.

I loved all the lines and ovals. 

I think this part of the walk has only been open a few weeks. 

That is some sharp looking shade.

Across the river...pretty church. (I have a short attention span.)

Crossing under Kennedy Blvd

WHAT in the heck are those ladies doing?

 I love bright colors. 

...and a cloudy skyscape.

I gave these folks grief about wearing long pants in 90+ degree weather. She said she'd just flown in from Detroit where it was 41 degrees...so I didn't give her a citizen citation. 

More of those beautiful Florida skies

Steps to the convention center.

More steps to the convention center. This lady was puttin' it to those stairs.

And get a load of the guy doing the pushups. 'Hey! Go the Y like everyone else. We don't need you showing off!'

I think these folks are regretting renting these things. 'How far back is it, sweetie?'

Colors always catches my attention. So folks bicycle on the River WALK too. I'm glad she was staying hydrated.

Snapshots - The Causeway

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

Oh! I need a couple of those mini-boats. 

Or a single big boat. 

Ugh. I have to go over that.

I made it to the top. Lookie over there.

And over there. I love clouds. 

Oh look. Pretty clouds. Oh! A boat. 

The running (biking) down the pedestrian bridge is a lot easier than the up.

I need a boat. No. Really. "Need."

With a pair of lightposts every fifty feet across the cuaseway...you can find an osprey or cormorant on each. A rare adolescent eagle. Okay, some gulls too.
