‘Ripples’ for Ailsa’s Travel Theme.


“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” ~ Scott Adams

Ailsa’s travel theme this week is ‘Ripple’. Not being a ‘water baby’, I’ve never been a person to make a big splash, either in or out of the water, but I just love the word ‘ripple’. It’s sounds so gentle and not in the least bit intimidating. Ripples on the water can be caused by nothing more than a slight breeze, as in these sunset pics of the small lake outside our home in Florida.

The surface of the water is always on the move, although the Great Blue Heron manages to stand as still as a statue.

This anhinga also sits so peacefully watching the rippling water.

Generally there’s nothing more scary than a few ducks and other water birds creating ripples in the calm water,

except on the odd occasion when the ripples are caused by something slightly more sinister.

I do hope you enjoyed my ripple pics. I can’t wait to get back there in September to take a few more.

  2. I’ll bet you’ve made a few ripples in your time, ad. You’re way too modest. I’ve seen your Dream of Jeanie pic and some of the luscious cakes you’ve created. These ripples are all masterpieces.
    πŸ˜‰

  3. I’m ripply, but I don’t want anyone taking pictures of them. They are not relaxing. In fact, they are a lot of work to maintain. I have to eat all the right foods to keep my ripples in tact. Your ripple pictures are so natural, and are very relaxing. πŸ™‚

    • Same here. I do go in the water occasionally, but I prefer dry land. My worst experience was when hubby managed to capsize the Hobie Cat were in, and I got stuck underneath for a few minutes. 😯 Luckily I was hauled into a lifeboat by a handsome young man and just the two of us sped back to shore. It was almost worth it. πŸ™‚

  4. Ripply water is so fascinating AD …. I do love the sunset colours there echoing in the water . It’s no wonder you are looking forward to that in September . Oh … but you have other ripply or otherwise kinds of waters in Cornwall yet to enjoy soon … Aah … lucky AD πŸ™‚

  5. A beautiful series of water ripples. The last one reminds us to still be cautious even when the water seems quiet. We’ll never know what lurks beneath it .

    • Absolutely right, IT. That’s why I’m not really a water baby. I like to know there’s nothing underneath me that could give me nasty bite. πŸ™‚

  6. That’s the thing with water. Even when you’re not in it, it just soothes the soul…
    Thanks for these lovely ripply pics AD πŸ™‚

  7. Oh, I bet you miss your home there in Florida AD. I know I would. πŸ˜€ Great pics of a lovely place hon. Love the ripples! Thanks for a lovely share. πŸ˜€ *big hugs*

  8. Header Prize for your hammock header. So cool. Always enjoy stopping by and enjoying your photos and words. I got goosebumps when I saw the last photo! How is that for a response?

  9. Love, love, love the sky on that 1st pic & its refection in the water!
    Almost missed that g’gator. But – I saw him just before he snapped his mouth open to have me for an evening snack. Whew – that was close!

  10. That first photo is so soothing and inviting, Ad. I just want to pull up a chair and look. But the herons are irresistible too. πŸ™‚

  11. Great choices, Sylvia. If I wasn’t so buried in playing with a new toy, I’d post some of my little “ripples” at the beach…. πŸ˜€

  12. The ripples are excellent for sure Sylvia, but I love the appearance by three of my favorite critters…the GBH, Anhinga, and of course Mr. A!
