Another Adventure!

Come Sail With Me click on photo for larger view
Ships sail East and Ships sail West
And the selfsame breezes blow;
It's the set of the sail and not the gale
That determines the way they go.
As the ways of the sea are the ways of the world
As we travel along through life:
It's the set of the soul that determines the goal.
And never the storm of strife. 

~Ella Wheeler Wilcox~ 
This photo was taken yesterday in Naples, Florida. Naples is a place of vast abundance, where beauty and opulence are easy to find. Along with some friends we enjoyed a great lunch, shopping on 5th Avenue and a visit later to Naples Pier. Some of the shops were offering 50% off, which made the clothing almost affordable, somewhere in the price range of Bealls before the coupons! Love those coupons!
Visiting the pier gave me the greatest joy, watching families enjoy the outdoors, fishing, just strolling along, enjoying the gorgeous weather! 
A very tattered dolphin graced us with her playful antics! Such a joy to watch but difficult to photograph. The sailboat, however, was easier to capture and kind of summed up the day! 
The poem above was sent to me by my cousin Joanne. I loved it from the moment I read it and thought you would enjoy it too! Have a wonderful day! 
Darn those friends, still have to clean and do a large grocery order, not to mention working in the yard! Somehow I know I have my priorities straight though! Life is just to darn short!

Pin It!

Love the poem too, which is perfect for the perfect pic of a sail boat!
When you have nothing else to wear or eat, you'll get the chores done. can go shopping again and eat out.
