Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Ah, finally Judy, this was the one I was talking about. It has something just so sweet and romantic about it. The bird flying over the umbrella and the restful, peaceful, beautiful colors. One worthy of hanging on the wall. Love the scripture too.

@Marion: I'm glad you liked it, Marion. It has been in the queue for a while, since you asked about it.
Today's my long day and of course I'm awake at 3:50 am <frown> ... I had better go get some more rest.

tyan from Singapore, Singapore

this is such a lovely shot,haha but my first thought was the umbrella was meant to shield off the bird's dropping,LOL:)

This is so perfect Judy. A real inspired shot, and one that inspires. Plus a nice verse added.

@Viewfinder: Thank you .......... it was such a peaceful scene and the gull demonstrated God's grace (to me).

Mandy Provan from Johannesburg, South Africa

Great verse and an awesome shot - as I saw it I thought - "I could sit down and relax there for a bit"!!! Great shot

Beautiful capture with the gull just over the umbrella. This looks so refreshing. Oh, to be at the beach:-)

@sherri: Thank you, Sherri ... I love your state, but it's too far from the beach for me! ;D

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

I'm familiar with the shot and I love the way you're presenting it here! I'd only be sitting there watching the waters' movement!
