SkyWatch Friday

I am away from home for a long weekend in Virginia Beach. We are attending my father-in-law's annual shipmate's reunion. I am in the hotel room listening to the sound of the surf. Is there anything more relaxing than falling asleep with the ocean's melody and the sound of distant gulls in your ears? For this reason alone I miss living near the ocean but it makes it a very special time when we do get there. What do you like to fall asleep to?

These photos were taken when we were driving home the other day, and no I wasn't driving but in the passenger seat. No worries!


Have a great weekend everyone.

Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia for hosting SkyWatch Friday.

Your skies are beautiful, Denise. I am glad to know you weren't driving while photographing!
I love the sounds of the ocean, too.

Such beautiful skies, Denise, and wonderful captures -- and yes, I'm glad you weren't driving, too! I love the sound of the surf, don't think there's anything as soothing! So glad you're getting to enjoy that!! Enjoy your weekend!

Those are great pictures from a car. For some reason I'm always the one driving and if I see pics that need taking I make my wife do it. She does a pretty good job.

That first photo is a sky and a half. Wow!
The second two form a perfect set. They'd look perfect mounted one atop the other on a wall.

I like to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean, but now I live far away from it, too. I also like to sleep in a berth on a train. Even at home, if I can't sleep, the sound of a train whistle relaxes me.

Incredible vision!! What a pretty scene to happen upon! I love the sound of the ocean too! Generally we can hear it when the surf is pounding (we're about ten roads away +..anyway, I hear more of the pitter patter of falling rain- but do enjoy that! Beautiful header- hope you have a wonderful weekend Denise:))

Fantastic sky - I love how you captured the dark dramatic colors.

I also love your banner! I was away from blogging (had surgery) for a bit, and have not seen it before.

I love faling to sleep listening to rustle of trees or chirping birds or gentle rain!

It used to be that I could fall asleep to crickets, but someone at home selected the cricket sound for the morning alarm on their cell phone, and crickets have the opposite effect.

I like when my wife or one of the kids or even a pet falls asleep leaning on me. That doesn't put me to sleep, but I savor those moments.

I usually fall asleep watching TV. The sky shots are very nice, I like to watch clouds. Have a nice week.
