Patterns - and a Spanish Doubloon





Abstract patterns ..... sand ....... sea ......  sky ........ clouds...... reflections on water 








Angelic figures?
























Princess, Maddy and Poppy






Princess is a West Highland White Terrier.
Her ancestors,it's believed, arrived in Scotland in 1588,when a ship of the defeated Spanish Armada

was wrecked in a storm near the island of Skye while fleeing from the English Navy.
The dogs are thought to have been used as rat catchers on the ships.
Princess is very interested in rodents........especially squirrels!






Painting by Andrew Spratt   -   Spanish galleon at  TANTALLON CASTLE






I found this golden "Spanish Doubloon" in the garden a few days ago,possibly thrown over the wall
 by a child........is it a piece from a board game.......
or a pirate dressing up set?




Thank you for visiting

Your Princess is quite a treasure, she would have fun with the possums here in the garden, not sure if she understands the words "protected species?" Our Crazy Poodle doesn't!

I find much solace in the abstracts of the sky and coastline, too. Your dogs seem to like the beach!

Marie said...

I love your beautiful seascapes. The info on the white terrier is good to know, and I love the way it all tied in with the Spanish galleon and the "dubloon.: :-)

dritanje said...

These are wonderful images. The one of the choppy sea surface and reflections is so tangible it reminds me of your fabric wall hangings - could this be life copying art?

All are lovely, yet I especially loved the beach poochies, so cute they all are. I have a grand pup that is a Westie too ;)

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

I love it when the receding water leaves ripples in the sand. A nice day on the beach for your furbabies too to enjoy the sun and fresh air.
I think it might be nice to conjure a story about pirates from long ago that buried treasure where your garden now lies.
My great grandfather supposedly found some of these gold coins buried where he grew corn back in the 50s. I remember him showing me the coins when I was a youngster.
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Ruby.

You captured nicely the moment of nature patterns constantly flowing and changing, Ruby. I like all of them. Your dogs are all beautiful and I smiled to imagine them becoming one with wind at the beach.
