Wordless Outdoor Wordful Watery to Join

Shoreline Boulevard
Downtown Corpus Christi
[plant: Red Trumpet Vine]
view - Corpus Christi Bay [Gulf of Mexico]


  1. I love those flowers. It's been years since I last visited CC - someday I need to rectify that!

    Happy WW!


  2. Very nicely captured. Trumpet vines are lovely, but can get out of control in a hurry.

  3. Really terrific photo!!!

  4. Nice shot. I love the colors, light and perspective.

  5. I like the Trumpet Vine and I bet the Hummingbirds do will take over if one doesn't keep it under control.

  11. Good Morning Annie Sweetie...
    Oh my gosh what a beautiful share this morning. I love this view. I can clearly see why you traded the desert view for this each day. It is breathtakingly beautiful. I too, would be strolling along each and every day. The beaches would become my home as well. So beautiful. I can feel the ocean spray on my face, the warm sand between my toes, and I can hear the seagulls over head as they cry for me to move along. So beautiful sweetie.

    Hope you are having a great week. I am home with bronchitis. Coughed all night and exhausted so I am off to rest again. I just had to pop over and hug you sweet one. I pray that you are well. You are always in my thoughts. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  12. Absolutely beautiful, Anni! You live in a gorgeous area! :)

    WW: Dinosaur & Dragon Conga Drama

  13. I am finally once again playing catch up.
    My computer came down with a very bad virus and had to go to the shop.
    I just loved that photo of the beach.
    We are still having very nasty weather with lots of rain and flooding.After what I see on TV I will not complain.
    You are so talented in that sketch. I wish I could draw a straight line. LOL

  14. You have it all here, Anni: sky, sea and a splash of bright red!


    Puddles of water and drops of dew—
    What does it take to satisfy you?
    A rushing river, a roiling sea—
    That’s what it takes to satisfy me!
