Bad Start, Happy Ending


Today started out on a rough note.  I wasn't feeling well at all...

But by the time Mr. Tide got home this evening, I was feeling better and asked him if he would take me out in the kayak.




We took the tandem out for a spin and while he paddled, I got to ride along like the Queen of the Nile and snap pictures.  It's quite a treat to just glide along while someone else paddles, of course we all know I have the hard job of trying to capture the wildlife *rolls eyes*.

If you are wondering why I'm doing so many textured pictures this month, well I have a little project underway and so I'm working on a portfolio.  I promise, realism will be back soon, but for now I'm having fun creating.

So after a bad start, the day ended happily...thanks to some salt water, fresh air, and a handsome husband I can always count on!!   I hope you each had a good day, even if it started out upside down!

  6. Glad you are feeling better, because you just made me feel alot better...with your textured photos form the kayak ride. And since I have been so in need of a blogging break but have been pretending my way thru these past few weeks, I only just discovered the grand idea of the August Break...think I will join in...and maybe take it on in to September. As for your allergies, have you tried sprays of saline solution...very mild but really helps. All the best for your projects and a healthy bounce back.
