Andy,

Thanks so much for posting the stunner photos of New England ... I have always loved the sea, and spent a couple of summers in The Provincetown area, long before it had become filled with tourists, Martha´s Vineyard, Nantucket, Block Island, R.I. and numerous fishing villages along the way.

Appreciate your contribution sincerely,
Have a lovely summer,
Margaux.

One of your beautfiul photos resembles The Mediterranean tremendously ... The last one posted with all the small fishing vessels and tiny boats ... Very Mediterranean ...

Thanks for posting ...

Andy,

Aruba is a beautiful island as well as the other Dutch island, Curaçao or is it Curaco ? It has been so many years since we have actually been there ... Time flies ...

We spent 3 years in Punta de Este, Uruguay and lived in Mexico and Brazil as well ... During that time, we travelled frequently to the various Caribbean Islands & Panama, Costa Rica, and Mexico.

I only have Slides ( there were no digital cameras then ) and need to have a DVD / CD done ...

Have lovely summer,
Margaux.

Kylie,

The Mediterranean like all other seascapes, has its beauty and its negatives. However, we love it here in Italia and we like northern Spain too as well as The Aegean, Adriatic and Mediterranean ...

Though, we also loved Uruguay, as we lived there 3 years ... We adored Punta de Este ... Montevideo is a seafront city on the Atlantic and quite multi cultural. Many Italians, Spaniards, Germans and North American Expats live there ---

Only have slides though --- have to enquire about making a DVD so I can post some of the photos I have from South America and Mexico.

When I get back to Madrid, I shall have the Vet take care of that ...

We were also in Sydney when my older daughter Naia, was doing her PHD in Wellington, New Zealand -- she met us in Sydney ... Love Love Love ... Fab dining scene ! as you know I am sure !

Best regards.
Margi.

Well, since Dawglover hasn't posted LOW photos, I will. I took this about 5 miles out (we were on our way to one of our favorite fishing holes). This is off the shore at my third place Birch Beach, Lake of the Woods. LOW is technically a reservoir, but to me, it has always been The Lake. Hoping to head that way in about 10 days...home is where the heart is, and part of my heart, is always at LOW.

Margi, the last photo was taken in Rockport MA.

We enjoy Aruba and return there every year. It's a relaxing atmosphere and the beautiful beaches, ocean and sun make it a magical paradise.
