The sea I love!  It calls and sings and revives my spirit.  I long for its clear fresh waters, its toe-squishy shores.

wind sways leafy palms
foam like milk bubbles on shore
capturing my heart

drive-by-shooting of round pizza truck

We followed this strange round truck while driving through the rainforests of St. Lucia.  (I intensified the contrast just for fun.)  Do note that it is driving on the LEFT side of the road.  Right hand drive vehicles drive on the left side in St. Lucia.

Alphabe-Thursday, hosted by Ms Jenny, is so much fun!  This week our letter is "R."  Come visit others' submissions HERE and join in the fun!
