A row of shrimp boats anchor safely along Shem Creek, as the setting sun casts its reflection in a cabin window. As in yesterday's post, the dominant color today is blue, although a complementary spot of orange adds a defining accent.

  9. Still, peaceful and delightful..and with all the wild, windy weather that's been occurring in the US, may the calm continue.
