Water Babies!

Thunderstorm downtown Chicago - August 2011
I am drawn to water.  It can be falling from the sky, in a lake, sea or ocean.
My DH enjoying the water in MI - August 2011

I wonder is it because I grew up next to a large harbour that started my love of water?  
When I moved 3,658 miles away from that harbour I managed to locate next to another large body of water - Lake Michigan (which is the second largest of the Great Lakes by volume!).

Thankfully my hubby and boys love water as much as I do (evidence above!)

I spent some time on the water this weekend and captured these cuties off Cape Clear Island
I think I can count 5 seals - but there may be more! 
and also captured the shots below during the 1720 European Championships (Racing - Day 3)
1720 European Championships - Baltimore, West Cork
 Busy at the leeward mark! (above)
Lots of action on the water.

Fun weekend with great sailing, great company and time on the water!

Hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

Great pics, Deirdre - nice to see it rains other places too!!! Love all the sailing photos - I grew up around the sea also, but am a complete wuss of a fair-weather sailor - and I can't do without mountains!!!

Beautiful photos!! I love the water too...but live a long way away from it now! Our closest water is my parent's dam. Big enough to water ski on when we get the chance.

Glad you had some quality time with family. Those photos are really amazing! If you like the coast, sail up along the east coast and say hi :)

I too love the water and live just minutes from Lake Michigan. Thank you for sharing the pictures and reminding me how special the water can be!
