Blue Monday: Awnings and Letters

Blue Awnings

Blue Letters; Blue striped towel and shirt

 On Sunday, we took a leisurely stroll down the pier. There's something so refreshing when a storm passes and clears the air. Southern California has sunny skies, once again! Our prayers go out for the Midwest with all the tornado action we've been seeing on the news.

  1. Thanks for remembering the sad weather events in our Midwest--even a bit of Texas was included.

    Love your blues. Happy Blue Monday, D.

    1. Yes, our thoughts and prayers are with everyone!

  2. I think that blue looks so pretty against the sand color. I'm a Kansas resident and we escaped all the tornados. They were all around us.

    1. Yes, so glad you are safe. We have family in Kansas, too.

  3. I seldom see awnings nowadays.

    Please come and see my BLUES, when you get a chance.

  4. Beautiful share of Blues! Like the Awning..

    Visiting for Blue Monday- hope you can stop by:)

  5. Hi Leah! I'll come over for a visit! Thanks!

  6. When you start looking, isn't it interesting that so many commercial buildings use blue? Great captures!

  7. You know Emille, now that you mention it, I have noticed that! Thanks for stopping by!
