water Wise and Passionate against Overuse of and Under- recycled Plastic Bottles. . .

Lovely photos!

Thanks, PTC. We live in a beautiful area, surrounded by water. All I need to do is turn, face any direction, and “shoot.”

But even with all this water around us . . . we still conserve what’s coming out of the tap. As should we all.

Absolutely beautiful…the area looks so tranquil

nrhatch - May 27, 2011

We are extremely fortunate to live in this beautiful paradise, PiP! It’s been a dream of mine for most of my life . . . a dream that finally came true. 😀

Piglet in Portugal - May 27, 2011

Paradise it is! I hope it’s not the residents of said paradise that start a conversation with “what’s up?”

nrhatch - May 27, 2011

It’s our neighbors . . . many of whom are “snow birds.” They fly south for the winter and depart in the spring, leaving paradise to us for the summer months.

Beautiful water photos! 🙂

nrhatch - May 27, 2011

Thanks, Sharon. We’ve only lived here for 2 years but we are loving it!

4. barb19 - May 27, 2011

You live in a beautiful place Nancy, surrounded by water; I love the photos.
Yes, we all need to conserve water as much as we can – every little bit helps.

nrhatch - May 27, 2011

I’m anxious to see photos from the beaches near your new home, Barb ~ after you get settled in and have time to wander and wonder.

5. Rosa - May 27, 2011

Beautiful photos! It’s so hot and dry here today… I’d love to jump into that water right now!!

nrhatch - May 27, 2011

Water is so refreshing on a hot summer’s day.


6. flyinggma - May 27, 2011

Love that I got to experience those beautiful waters first hand this year. Truly beautiful and delightful.

I just commented to Dean when we went home for lunch today that our kids are terrible at turning off lights when they leave the home.
They are a generation that was raised with recycling…What’s up with that?(Just kidding Nancy..I read your post about conversations for Dummies) I just couldn’t resist.

nrhatch - May 27, 2011

I’m glad you had a chance to visit as well. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a return visit.

I love the expression, “What’s up with that?” . . . go figure! 😉

Probably because it doesn’t put any pressure on me to say anything more than . . .

“I know! Right?”

7. SuziCate - May 27, 2011

Love me some water, all forms! Beautiful! We must conserve our natural resources.

nrhatch - May 27, 2011

I love the look, the feel, the taste, and the sound of water . . . it quenches our thirst and soothes our soul. 😀

8. Penny - May 27, 2011

Love the photos, they are beautiful. The sounds of the waves and the breeze of the sea, there is nothing like it.

nrhatch - May 28, 2011

The sights, the smells, and the sounds abound . . . causing us to relax into the moment at hand. Be Here Now.

9. adeeyoyo - May 28, 2011

Water, water everywhere… beautiful!

nrhatch - May 28, 2011

It’s my favorite place on the planet . . . home, at last.

10. Cindy - May 28, 2011

Lovely 🙂

nrhatch - May 28, 2011

Paradise for visitors and residents alike.

11. Tilly Bud - May 28, 2011

If that’s where you live, I’m slavering with jealousy. In fact, I’m slavering with jealousy of everyone who lives there.


nrhatch - May 28, 2011

It took half a lifetime to get here . . . in part, because I didn’t know where I wanted to go and kept looking “out there” for guidance.

12. eof737 - May 28, 2011

Beautiful… thought that third one is a tad scary; like a tsunami in progress.

nrhatch - May 28, 2011

We live just across the bridge from the island itself . . . it’s our “buffer” zone.

13. viewfromtheside - May 28, 2011

it’s beautiful, but where do you go to ‘get away’ and feel taken out of your usual life?

nrhatch - May 28, 2011

I no longer desire to “get away” from my usual life. There are no ordinary moments here. 😀

14. earlybird - May 28, 2011

Lovely photos.

nrhatch - May 28, 2011

I’ve enjoyed photographing the area on our outings . . . even if my photos pale in comparison to the actual vistas.

15. CMSmith - May 28, 2011

Good photos. I’m envious you are so near the shore. Thanks for the link.

nrhatch - May 28, 2011

Thanks, Christine. It’s a delightful place to live at this point in our lives.

16. gospelwriter - May 28, 2011

For sure, you wouldn’t want to be drinking that stuff, beautiful as it is… 🙂

17. Tammy McLeod - May 29, 2011

Stunning Nancy!!

nrhatch - May 29, 2011

It’s a gorgeous place to live . . . I pinch myself every day for our good fortune.
