Watery Wednesday

Thank you 2sweetnsaxy of Eyes Mind Heart for creating and hosting Watery Wednesday. You can visit by clicking on the badge below to either share your own photos or just enjoy looking at others from around the world.

Our friendly security guard doesn't seem too worried at the enormous hand reaching out from the sea, or as in this case the Potomac River. You can see my post below this one which tells you all about the awakening giant.

These photos were taken along the waterfront at National Harbor in Maryland.


View of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and the spire of the Masonic Temple in Washington DC.

The skies were grey and cloudy on Sunday.


One last shot, the sleeping giant awakening to find he has three small visitors climbing all over him.

Absolutely love the first and last shot. The kids look like ants crawling on its face and the first one looks like a giant coming up from down below. :-)

The Awakening was one of my favorite things in DC to visit when I lived in No VA (1985-1990), I see now that it has been moved! I was telling my daughter I would take her to see it once we moved back to PA from FL. I guess we will be stopping off in MD on our way to DC! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for taking us on this trip with you, Denise. This is so much fun! I love the giant arm seeming to reach for the security guard.

Funny things come out of that river. Wasn't it a big jet not long ago. My Watery Wednesday is on my "Other Stuff" blog.

That's quite a sculpture. Thanks for your visit and don't worry, I haven't been able to get around to all of the blogs I like to check either. Seems with a little warmer weather and things to do outside as well as inside, my time gets away too quickly and by evening, I'm usually too tired to be playing around with the computer. But then I guess for someone 72 going on 73 in Oct. I should just be tickled I'm still around. LOL

Enjoy your company that's coming and don't work too hard at getting the house all straightened up, your company will just be glad to see you, they won't be paying that much attention to how clean the house is and we both know, after having company for a few days, there's always more cleaning and straightening up to do after they leave, so save some of your energy.

Have a great time with yhour visitors.

Came by when you posted about this fellow on your "my world" post. I think it is just amazing, at first it made me think of Gulliver. I like the little one in pink shorts, a perfect pop of colour in the sea of beautiful greys.
