MY LOST DAY LOOKED LIKE THIS?- SKYWATCH


Another wishing you were here picture postcard

Skywatch


Oh dear. Guess who didn't post and anything yesterday? Yes me. Of course I have the most wonderful reason (excuse) in the world that I could tell you all about. Would you like to hear about it. Actually I have no excuse whatsoever. Gary and I had a mid week drink with friends which somehow resulted in someone( er that would be me) suddenly interjecting they were hungry, so a trip to the local curry house ensued. All in a good course though. Yet another person known to Gary is leaving the island, so we had to send them off with a drink or two didn't we. When we eventually got home I got sidetracked and lost the rest of the night. Oops. By the time I got to a laptop Thursday(which is now) first time today) it was just too late as I'm now doing my Friday skywatch post of the photo that was taken Wednesday of the jetty and lighthouse from Queens Promenade. Confusing huh?


Anyway thanks for the emails as to why I had gone AWOL. No the Fenodyree, Ginnie the Witch or the wandering wallaby hadn't got me. No I was not hiding under Manannan's Cloak. No I hadn't fallen through the Stargate or Worm Hole. The Space Time Continuum is fine, no rips in time and no Parallel Universe has claimed me. I simply had a social break, no cameras, no blogs and simply forgot. No drama or crisis, just a time slip. I could spin you a tale of trolls under Ramsey Swing Bridge causing havoc an suchlike but maybe I'll leave that 'til the next time I lose a day. Knowing this place it could happen click red below.


Ginnie The Witch
Fenodyree


Skywatch watchers can be found here. Many thanks to Dot for the inspirational idea, Tom for the first care taking and the My world gang for looking after skywatch now.

Friday 13th again! Ah that explains it.

Elaine Dale said...

The troll argument works for me!

Sylvia K said...

Whatever you missed, it wasn't a fantastic shot of those lovely clouds! Gotten to the point that I enjoy your story of the day/night almost as much as the photos! And I love your photos! Thanks! Have a great weekend and don't let the trolls catch you!

I agree a good story teller you would make.
However a great picture taker you are. Thanks for sharing.

A well-written excuse is better than a good excuse! I love all your pictures of the sea, thanks for posting this one.

That's what drink or two with a curry will do to you.
My favorite kind of sky. Nice one.

Gretchen said...

What a beautiful scene!

Carver said...

Your beautiful shot makes me wish I was there. Your social break sounds like fun. I would like to be sitting on that beautiful beach with a glass of wine and a chunk of good cheese.

I loved your comment on mine. Now when I see the sky like it was in my shot, I'll think of a table cloth for the birds.

Cath said...

Well, whatever happened, it was worth it for that photo!

Is it really getting lighter now? Oh yes it is yes it is!

George Townboy said...

Great combination of land, sea and sky!

A perfect world, indeed. I would love to see that in person someday.

It's good to see you are human and take time out.I would love to go out on the town with you.

cara said...

Getting sidetracked is what it's all about!

Lovely shot as usual.

With such beautiful scenery, I like to be lost in there too. :) Have a nice weekend.

Thoughtfully blended hearts said...

You have a beautiful skywatch post...and such a wit...thanks so much for your comment on my post...since I'm such a newbie, I just love any compliment on my photography attempts...

Dan said...

I can't decide if I come for the writing or the photos anymore. Oh shoot all of it.

Jim said...

Our weather here the last few days, make me wish I was on the island.

Mo said...

Some days just seem to slip away. I haven't managed to post everyday despite my best intentions. A fabulous photo of the pier. Everytime I see your pictures of this part of the island I understand how you can fall in love with te place.

Mojo said...

We all need a break like that now and again. But what a comeback!

sweet shot!

Carletta said...

That's your story and you're sticking to it right! :)
Beautiful as a postcard pic!

Lilli & Nevada said...

What a beautiful Island i could stand to be on right now.

nobu said...

Beautiful sky!!

Small City Scenes said...

Ah, good excuse! We like excuses. My Mother once told my brother to stop making excuses and he it is not an excuse but a good explanation.....so it goes. MB

J Bar said...

A great shot.

Connie said...

The sky is so blue and the clouds look pretty floating up high.

fishing guy said...

Babboshka: Everyone needs a time to recharge, great shot.

Anonymous said...

Funny, I was listening to wish you were here as I came here. Nice wide open sky and beatch. Well done.

Yep. Friday the 13th is reason enough -:)

magiceye said...

absolutely ooooh

Deslilas said...

Irregularity is life ( and the opposite too).

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

this is gorgeous. I am glad to know that others forget their postings once in awhile also. I am trying to get ahead on postings at least four days at a time but it is hard.

RuneE said...

No excuse needed - breaks are a necessity and pictute postcards wotks very well.

PS Thank you for the pleasant comment - I like doing that kind of stuff.

Olivier said...

que dire de plus : magnifique ce ciel

Bibi said...

This brightened my day on Friday the 13th...

Si said...

Not necessary to explain the photo makes much pleasant viewing.

hitch writer said...

lovely sky !

thanks for sharing !

ROSIDAH said...

It was a lovely time slip :). I love your clouds. They look very impressive, like moving to the screen and so near to the water. I don't know how you were able to manage that. Best wishes.

vincibene said...

Wonderful view!

Tarolino said...

You don't know how much I enjoy reading about these little episodes in your life spiced up with a great deal of humour à la Babooshka. Pictures aside they make a wonderful addition to the blog world. Pictures aside? No I did not hint that they are mediocre. You know they are not. Fabulous compositions and beautiful seascapes with just the right angle to capture the glory of the sky. Not mediocre. Wonderful!

Bergson said...

I love these clouds

JAMJARSUPERSTAR said...

Lovely picture, lovely story. It sounds like something I'd do - just bursting out that I was hungry. In fact, I do it all the time and I'm surprised I'm not the size of a house!!
Ciao

Fabulous photo as usual B. Isn't it funny how we feel we have to justify our absences?!

nessabates said...

Looks like a beautiful day!!

Sharon said...

No wonder you missed posting...I think I would rather be looking at this scenery than the monitor on a laptop! Beautiful skywatch photo:)

Hilda said...

Sure, blame it on Friday the 13th! ;)

Sounds like you had a grand time last night — that's worth missing a post or two for.

Love that stone and white jetty. Gosh, how far away were you? That lighthouse is so tiny from here.

Elisabeth's bright side said...

Thanks for kind words when visiting "my favourite place on earth" You have creative and stunning pictures yourself! (It is possible ;)

Tanya said...

Gorgeous B! Have a great weekend :)

Dewdrop said...

I forgive you for missing a day. lol

Your picture is amazing. It's almost as if you captured the motion of the clouds in the still shot. My mind sees them still moving. WONDERFUL!!

Jan K. alias Afanja said...

I had to laugh about your story, but I really like your SWF contribution. There are great lines and clouds in your picture and the colours are beautiful.
Have a good weekend.

Inkivääri said...
