Y is for....yachts!

About 3 miles up the road from our village is the Scaling Dam Saling Club.
I enjoy looking at the boats there, so I decided to get some inspiration for ABC Wednesday whilst taking Freida for a walk.

I loaded my pictures into Picassa and used the basic tools to play around!





A nice little break from DIY!
For more ABC fun see the link in my sidebar.

  10. Nice set of yachts. We took the plunge, so to speak, and bought a small sail boat when our boys were pre teens. Used my royalties to do it and then upgraded the size every year or so. It was a great move. It kept our boys from the rampant drugs and alcohol among the surfer dudes one of the drawbacks to living in so. Cal.)and today our sailing days are among their happiest memories. They both have boats still today.

  11. Gorgeous pics, I keep meaning to get my head round Picasa, perhaps that can my resolution! You can't photoshop some blue skies over here can you - it's raining through my letter box as we speak!

    Happy New Year to you!

  13. I thought for sure you'd do "Yorkshire," but yachts work for me as they obviously do for YOU! Nice photos.

  18. What serene and lovely captures

  19. Those yachts look cosily tucked in. Wise with all the gale force winds around, definitely more dog walking than sailing weather, although I did spot a surfer the other day.

  21. Hello. Happy New Year!
    You did good with Picasa tools. I only use Picasa to store my images. Never used the edit tools before. Might have to give it a try sometime.
    Lovely shots!
    Thanks for sharing. I appreciate your kind words on my entry too.
