This lovely gallery wrap of a buoy marker came from Dianna from These Days of Mine. Dianna took the picture of this buoy/channel marker in the Pagan River not far from her home and posted it on her blog last October titled Misty Morning Fog. I fell in love with the photo and proceeded to comment on Dianna’s blog about how much I loved it.. 😀 This channel marker has a nest on top, most probably an Osprey nest and that was the clincher. When CH was assigned to Washington, D.C. in 1989 we had our boat at a marina off the Potomac River. We often spent long evenings after he got home and weekends in a cove called Mattawoman Creek. It was there we watched closely the raising of a family of Ospreys. Our time spent in D.C. was stressful and getting out on the boat with some very dear friends was what got us through those four years. All kinds of memories came flooding back with Dianna’s photo.
This is the picture Dianna posted to her blog. Such a beautiful picture she composed and captured. If you would like to see her original post click here. Well Dianna has a big heart and the gallery wrap with her picture showed up at our house and now we have a beautiful picture taken by a dear to me blog friend that adds even more “special” to our memories. Dianna knows how near and dear this gift is to our hearts. Dianna has talked me through setting up an account on Facebook, answered questions I have had about posting to WordPress, shares a love of horses, kitties and old barns. I hope to meet her in person! Such a thoughful gift Dianna, you are a special lady. Thank you so much! I was just hoping to get a copy of the original! Dianna takes some gorgeous pictures and she has been published several times. One of her pictures has been selected for the 2015 Corolla Wild Horse Fund Calendar! Look for March! Visit Dianna at These Days of Mine for her beautiful pictures and blog posts filled with stories from her heart and some laughter too. Her Husband Motor Man and her son Marshall add charm and humor and her sweet cats Sundae and Gypsy do guest posts. She enjoys clicking and sharing beautiful sunrises and sunsets on the water from their lovely home in Virginia.
