Alphabet-Thursday - 21 February 2013

Life's busy NECESSARY schedules have kept me away, but I took advantage of some spare minutes for this important mantra! Just for Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday, and the letter N. Note, not necessarily (springtime) nice, naturalistically negative (about) N-inter  N-eather now.


This is cool right?
Not necessarily what it looks like!



Never a good sign to see SNOW covering the outdoor patio if your wedding reception is scheduled here!


Now, tell me is that (not what you think it is) nearing our location?


Now you know!  Anytime I feel the urge to visit a lighthouse I only need to drive a few short miles to see this captain waving from above!
He's the keeper of nearly-everything out here!
Seriously- now would I ever be so narrow-minded not to mention him?


If only the sun had come out in full form to shine a little warmth upon me.  I wouldn't have needed to quickly run back to my car to warm my photo-taking-fingers!

 NICE, NOBLE, NONCHALANT, Nearly sea ready sailor at your service.

Never say never- because he doesn't always speak!
Never to strangers!

"N-Ahoy N-Matey, Land ho!"

Thanks for stopping by!  
Gotta run my ship is ready to sail!

NOTE- For those of you that are unfamiliar with The Chart House- it really and truly does have this ship attached to the restaurant.

Legend has it that it tries with all it's might to reach the water, but so far, not even close.

If you have it in your heart, please follow my THINK SPRING mantra!

My goodness... I thought that was somebody's back yard!! And wondered how on earth they got that ship in it!

I enjoyed your creative take on the letter N!

Wow, not a good thing to have a wedding reception on the patio filled with snow! I hope the couple had a plan "B". Sorry to mess with your "N" theme you have going on here! lol

You're so creative Karen and can some up with so much from one letter, good job!

Have a wonderful day and an even lovelier weekend! And just think, we're one day closer to Spring! :-)

Cloudia- That's really cool to hear! I just adore this place. I have many fond and special memories hooked to this place!

Karen S. said...

Cloudia - I do remember seeing that video clip before, and your music selection is perfect with it!

Splendid Little Stars said...

looks fun!
I thought it was a backyard, too!

When I first saw the first image, I thought it was a line of cattle moving away from you on the right and that you were going for "surf and turf," which I thought was really cool. Anyway, when it became clear to me that they were actually bushes, I still thought the shot was cool. Hey, my eyes still ain't even close to being right yet!

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

You always have surprises for us, Karen. I thought that the bushes were buffaloes.

What a creative take on the letter N.

Karen S. said...

Jerry and Kathy- I totally see the cattle or buffalo too! I had to go back and look- pretty cool!

Michael J. McCann said...

Great photos! Never fear, spring approaches!

Little Nell said...

Well I wasn't expecting that!

Jenny said...

You are incredibly nifty!

I love your creativity.

You totally got me by surprise!

Thanks for linking.

I really like that boat in the snow - even if it is on dry land under the snow! Nifty!
