When I saw that the photohunt theme this week was water, I couldn't resist posting a few more shots from my vacation on the North Carolina (USA) coast.I love the ocean and have been fortunate to be able to spend time at the beach my entire life. I am only a 3 1/2 hour drive from the beach I went to this year, and live even closer to other spots on the coast. I love how the color of the ocean varies by time of day and also has variations by depth and other factors.
As beautiful as salt water is, there is nothing like soaking rains after a long drought. The shot below was taken from my bedroom door as I watched the rain in May pool and puddle on the deck and knew my 32 gallon containers were all getting full under the gutters.
The reservoir which supplies my city's drinking water reached 100 percent capacity by the end of spring this year which was great news. Considering our unseasonably hot weather in June, we were very lucky to get so much rain from March through May and have had a few showers in June.
The last shot is the water droplets on one of my roses. I hope that everyone has a great weekend.
