Dream with me a little

This is from the Ocean View area of Norfolk , Va.
Both Mark and I spent a  number of years in Norfolk.
I grew up there and mark moved there when he was in his teens.
It is where we met and lived before we moved to the center of North Carolina.
This is one of the things I miss most about the Tidewater area.
Water, water every where.

So dream with me a little.

I have been making some fillers for the kiln while Mark is mixing glazes.
We have been piling up the bisque ware and now it is time to get serious about firing.

But first a little delay for me while I spend tomorrow having some fun with the dentist.
I'll  think about this picture while they are playing with my tooth.

I gave up my view of the ocean for mountain views. I do miss the beach and ocean sometimes, though. I'm thankful that I've been able to have both. Nice picture. Thanks.

i also gave up the ocean for the mountains, in fact i know exactly where you took this picture from lol. we lived all over the norfolk area for many years and i also met my husband there. most recently we moved from suffolk to MT 2 yrs ago and i've never looked back. beautiful picture though, brings back many memories. :)

Lovely picture. The mountains are lovely; the ocean soothes my soul. Glad to be smack dab in the middle of them!

That is such a beautiful picture, I just had to have a look. It does look a place for dreaming.

(Good luck with the dentist.. that sounds like the nightmare sort of dreaming!)

Be still my heart! I grew up on the coast too, and I really miss the water. We were thinking that we might move to the Mts. when Gerry retires but the coast is looking better and better with all of this snow!

No fun- it was no fun today and I used my mental picture of the ocean to keep me in the chair, if you have ever had a root canal you will know this is not pleasant.
I would rather give birth....
I would like to say it is all over...But!
Maybe there is a post in here...
