Dedicated to Declan

Declan's photo borrowed from his Mum
While speaking to my friend Declan in the UK, he said he would like to come to Florida, but his Mum said he can't get in the country, so they can't come.  I told him I would take photos of the marina for his Mum the next time I went to the library.
To meet Declan, click on the photo or his name.


 Above is my white SUV parked facing the waterfront of the library which is the building in the background  and below photos are the view from the library

Twin Dolphin Marina

 The sky cooperated just so I could tempt Deccy and his Mums to come for a visit because I had an idea on how to get Deccy through customs.



White balance on  Shade in this one



 Below is my IDEA.. I reserved the empty slip, and Deccy if you charter a private boat (make it a big one since it is a LOOONG way from UK to Florida) there is no customs, you just park the boat and get off in Florida.

I have included the photo of the breakwater wall that protects the boats from wakes of boats speeding in the no wake zone..... I am Waiting Deccy.
and we do have three Greyhound Rescues here... in case you get lonely.


PS my bestest  friends have four paws, don't yours?

Oh you make it look so tempting! Maybe we could do Florida instead of Wales next week.... Maybe we could do both; Charter a boat from Hollyhead to Florida! I wonder if they have boats that big in Hollyhead...other than Irish Ferries....hmmmmm! Deccy x

If I was Declan I would certainly be tempted. Seeing all those beautiful clouds in the blue sky reflecting on the water makes me wish I was there. The water is so still it looks like a mirror, love the reflections.

Maple Lane said...

Declan would surely enjoy visiting Florida! Love your photos, Sandra. I'm off to visit Declan now.

Have a good day!

I am sure you have put much temptation before D's doggy eyes.

Kathy said...

Love the harbor pics. Beautiful. Even with your method I think he would still be declared an illegal immigrant!

Terri Buster said...

Pretty reflections on that still water.

Remington said...

After seeing those pics who wouldn't want to go to FL!

Cranberry Morning said...

Good grief, I want to step into those pictures!! Declan is lucky to have you on his side. I'm sure you can pull this off. lol

S. Etole said...

What a beautiful sight. It definitely entices one to want to visit.

TexWisGirl said...

such wonderful photos! love these! nicely done, sandra! i think you'll be getting some UK visitors for sure. :)

Deborah said...

HAHA that was so cute! You must live in a beautiful area!!!!
Isn't it funny how kids picks names. Well I looked up what Mya means, it means Mother or the Great One...the funny thing is, you probably remember Penny, my sisterinlaw who passed away. Well, my daughter use to call her Mama Penny, and as a young Mom I got upset with that...SO I keep teasing my daughter that I'm going to have Autumn call me Mama Debbie but I never did, so I think this is Penny's way as a little joke for me to my daughter ....crazy but fun!
xxoo

How tempting this must be for your friend! What a beautiful view while visiting the post office! The water looks like glass, such lovely reflections. My son has a jon boat that he would love to park there and visit with you and your four legged friends. Our bestest friends are four legged. :)

Those clouds make the pictures perfect. I love that kind of day.

Stunning pictures, and the clouds are gorgeous :-)
Will go back to work tomorrow - back to normal routines again. Feeling a lot better (phew) enjoy the rest of your day. Nice pic of Declan

What a perfect location for a library, if I worked there I know where I would spend my lunch breaks. :)

Madi and Mom said...

Mad Snapper what a wild and wacky idea!!! IT JUST MIGHT WORK TOO
If you get Deccy and Mums to FL, Mom and I will come down too and we can have a party. Gorgeous pictures
hugs madi and Mom
PS hope you have your camera and patience packed for BTSB

Rebecca said...

Awww...And yes, I just started a four paw post, saved it in drafts. Not sure when I will post it.

DawnTreader said...

That's quite some view from the library. Ours can't beat that ;)

Chatty Crone said...

You are a naughty girl - and the feds will be after you!!!!!!!!!!
Loved your photos though but I bet they can pick them out.

Miss Debbie said...

I love pictures of water...and yours are beautiful!

barbara l. hale said...

Gorgeous photos and Declan is very, very handsome! We adopted a greyhound years ago and Tigger lived with us for twelve wonderful years. I loved that dog and his laid back personality. Lovable couch potatoes...that's what they are. Greyhounds are great dogs and they deserve a good home. We never regretted our decision for one day. Yep, the best friends have four paws.

Ann said...

It's gorgeous there. I want to come too :)

Debra Dickinson said...

A boat?!? Those pics are so pretty I'm tempted to walk! :)

Dee said...

I would be at that Library all day every day....B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l.

Greyhounds are very special dogs indeed... I do hope your friend can find a way over...it would be a wonderful time for you guys.

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

Those boats look so pretty and white...He would want to come in one of those boats...nice post for Declan

Linda said...

So glad to see the beautiful views of the marina.
A visit to your library would be a frequent one!

EG CameraGirl said...

Lovely reflections, Sandra!

Deb said...

I think we should all go visit you Sandra...so beautiful...

Rose said...

I love those water shots! They are so beautiful.
