Window on the Water by maggiemae

Window on the Water

Coffee in the seaside cafe called “The Galley” meant a view out just one of an open window there. A slight and cold easterly made it somewhat uncomfortable but the view of the harbour made me stay - with a delicious cappuccino and a few pecks of John’s delicious date scone in hand!
Be good on the Black.

Three Good Things:
1. We said to ourselves, this small town is such easy living - always get a good park, lots going on and a lot of sun overall!
2. Got a good library book with a great author and was disappointed in the first page where someone had pencilled:. “Disappointing and boring” I rubbed it out!
3. Friday fish was Ling and not sure how old it was - should be good but perhaps i didn’t cook it long enough. Not to worry. Ice cream cones at half time with the TV rugby were yummy! Actually I lie - only thought about the latter!
A terrific image of a lovely view.

As gorgeous a view as I remember! Certainly a picture scene to remember! Your town is just the right size to enjoy. How awful to write on a book....she/he had no taste if you are enjoying it. I have never heard of Ling!

@happypat More likely, ding-a-ling, Pat! Nice to see the harbour so placid.

This is especially beautiful on the black background! It's good that you erased the negative comment in the library book ...Quite useless for someone to ruin it for other readers!

Beautiful B&W.
It's a shame that people write in library books or cross words they don't like.

@dsp2 If I knew who had done it, Dinah - I would have said you must be exactly the same as the comment!

@gijsje Its OK if its your own book but a public book - its like defacing it!

I love the photo I love it even more the way you framed it so that it looks like a photo that is out of frame! Black-and-white is the perfect choice for this.

Your comment about the ice cream had me laughing.

I just read in my psychology book today about a study that was done in Dunedin in the late 20th century. I was so excited to know the name because of you.

@grammyn In 1961, I was in Dunedin at the university! They probably did a study on me - 'why this student failed ironing'!

@maggiemae LOL! It was in the early 70s actually. They studied the boys who live in abusive homes and the relationship with a certain enzyme as to how it affected criminal behavior later in life. Very interesting. I will keep my eye out for the one about students failing ironing !
