Postcards for the Weekend #30
For Maria's Postcards for the Weekend we have chosen to share our card from New Zealand featuring Mitre Peak, Milford Sound. The theme for this weekend is a card "from a country you would want to live in if you have the chance/choice." If you enjoy postcards be sure to check out the link. Thanks to Maria for hosting.
(For first time visitors, we like to include something "maritime" in our posts as we are located near the waters of Puget Sound, Washington.)

Closing thought ...
After the game, the king and pawn go into the same box.
oh...went loopy over those skiesReplyDelete
Thanks for the Milford Sound postcard John! I'm pretty interested about New Zealand, too. Thanks so much also for the beautiful snap of that sailboat.ReplyDelete
Such peacefulness in these photos!ReplyDelete
"After the game, the king and pawn go into the same box."
This really makes ya think.
Hello, what a great post. I love all the pretty sky shots. The postcard from New Zealand is a pretty scene. Have a happy day and new week ahead!ReplyDelete
Wow, New Zealand!ReplyDelete
Hello John, another interesting post . . . love the sailboat on the Sound . . . wish I was on it :)ReplyDelete
Your sunset photos have such fantastic color. I also enjoy the shipping photos as that is not something I see in my land locked state.ReplyDelete
Beautiful skies and all free.ReplyDelete
You know I enjoy all your posts, but this one seems extra special. That first sunset scene is a sure winner for me. I LOVE that shot.Each picture has something special about it.Wonderful post,John. Have a great week.I'm on a one week break from work,Spring Break.ReplyDelete
That March 20 sunset is spectacular, but as always I enjoyed your entire post, John. :-)ReplyDelete
Yes New Zealand always looks stunning, it would be on my list of places to live too. You've had a busy shipping week, I always enjoy looking at where vessels are going to and from.ReplyDelete
I love the picture for March 23rd with the tree on it. And the glowing sky. So nice.ReplyDelete
Wow! That is a gorgeous group of sky photos. All the rest are also great. That new fishing boat must have cost a pretty penny.ReplyDelete
Loved your shot of the sailboat, and I enjoyed your photos of the other boats as well.ReplyDelete
The last quote is thought provoking, and it does have some truth. People think how important they are in life is so important...but dust they are and to dust they will return.
