Water Dragon Sunday Post: Black & White/ Paris

I got lost but look what I found. ~Irving Berlin

Did you ever lose something?  Something BIG?
My daughter and I lost the EIFFEL TOWER on our first visit to Paris. ūüėČ

We had just arrived at our hotel, dumped our suitcases in the room, and took off looking for the famous monument.
We knew it was close.  After all, we were in the 7th arrondissement, and it was only two blocks away.

After 45 minutes of walking, we sat on a bench to check out a map and rest.
I decided to take a picture of my daughter studying the map.

As I looked in the viewfinder I yelled to her……..”Oh no! ¬†Look behind you!”

OH NO! LOOK BEHIND YOU!

 

The lost is now found!  

PS. We did much better finding our way around Paris for the next two weeks!

Thanks for viewing this Sunday Post.

Weekly Image of Life: Happiness

Hello dear blogger friends~

My friend, Island Traveler, from the blog This Man’s Journey¬†has started a new photo/writing challenge for Wednesdays. ¬†It’s called Weekly Image of Life. ¬† This week’s challenge is Happiness. ¬†If you’d like to join, go to his site ..click on his blog name. ¬†You are not required to do the challenge every week, but go to his blog to read the exciting details he has planned.

“A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour.”¬† ~Author Unknown

Happiness is sitting on a bench, pondering life together.

One joy scatters a hundred griefs.  ~Chinese Proverb

May you find happiness wherever it blooms today and forever. ¬†Sometimes we look all around for happiness, but instead, it may come as a surprise.¬† A smile from a stranger, a note or email from someone we haven’t heard from in a long time, a flower blooming by itself in the center of the garden, or the car ahead of us paying our toll.¬†¬† Happiness can come in many forms.¬† And when we Give Happiness to others, we also receive the gift back to us. ~

Have a Blessed day full of happiness~

Weekly Photo Challenge: Friendship II

I tried to find this photo for the challenge and it turned up in my husband’s computer! ¬†So here’s my Friendship ll photo!

¬†Though miles may lie between us, we’re never far apart, for friendship doesn’t count the miles, it’s measured by the heart.
~Rozina Hasham

At the beach with Gail on St. Simons Island, GA.

¬† Good friends who don’t see each other often can pick up right where they left off the last time they met. ¬†They can talk all day about what they’ve missed in each other’s lives. ¬† But sometimes friends don’t need to talk at all. ¬†They often share the same thoughts and feelings anyway. ¬†Just sitting side by side, two good friends can enjoy each other’s company, the scenery, and searching for that elusive cormorant bobbing up and down in the waves of the St. Simons sound!!! ūüėČ

In friendship,

Judy
