Beckoning Sky on Sky Watch Friday

We are on holidays here and yesterday was just one of those drop-dead gorgeous days with the sky and sea so beckoning. A perfect way to have spend it was on a sail boat....

......pity it isn't ours!!!

I've been jumping up and down on my deck waving my champagne glass but haven't scored a berth yet!! Maybe I'm being too pushy?

Check out other beckoning skies here.

Hmmm- thought that would work for sure. How about slowly removing bits of clothing - I heard that might make some kind of difference (but nothing from experience here - sorry!) Gorgeous yacht. And sea. Oh - and sky.

David said...

Julie, The photo is great, what beautiful colors.

Tom said...

That looks so perfect Jules... when I win the lotto I will buy one for you and your Captain 'don't blog'.. hope this finds you both well and relaxing.

Tom :O)

Daniel Santos said...

Absolutely beautiful, wonderful.

Unknown said...

Awsome picture! A true postcard!!! (I will not say again I wish I was there!...) :-)

Jane Hards Photography said...

That should be your postcard. It is picture perfect. I'sbe quite happy owning that little babay too.

Jules said...

Thanks all for your comments!!!

Tom - keep buying those tickets and you can be our First Mate

Jilly & eg tour guide - I have sore feet!!!

reluctantfarmchik - God perish the thought - that would be an incentive for them to pull up the anchor and scuttle off into the sunset!!!!

imac - the gin's on ice!!!

donna - Sorry - it's all yours dear - I'm sitting on the deck watching the water!!!

Guy D said...

Wow now that is what you call a peaceful picture. Thanks for sharing


Gill - That British Woman said...

Gill in Canada

Dan said...

I agree! Everyone needs one of those.

DeniseinVA said...

Oh my gosh just a stunning photograph. I'm fantasizing about sailing the seven seas on that beautiful boat. I'm having a great time :))) Happy SkyWatch Friday.

Ann said...

Oh wow, look at those blues. I know where I'd like to be right now.

Willow said...

I'd keep jumping, just in case...

This is definitely a photo of paradise!

Ann said...

Very hot here Jules, 34 in the city and it will be hotter in the western suburbs. Don't know what happened to spring.

Kris McCracken said...

An ethereal glow there.

[I originally wrote “urethral” for some reason, not a glow that I want!]

Alifan said...

Wow Jules, wish the sky looked like that here, it is cold and dull and dark!!! so looking at your picture has cheered me up!!!!

M.Benaut said...

Howdy Jules,
So nice to see your happy smiling visage after such a long break in the proceedings.
Thanks for all your wonderful words of encouragement over the last seven weeks since we have been working our fingers to the bone in the Northern Blog Department.
I must say that the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea at Palavas-les-Flots just outside Montpellier were almost as nice as your picture today.
Marie and Madame ensured that I was well and truly initiated in the French method of getting wet. What a hoot it was !!!
If I'm game enough, you'll see the results on ADP in a few days.

Please pass on my best to Benson and HWDB. We waved as we flew over on Tuesday but nobody looked up.

Kisses and stuff from Oz;
M. & Mme, B.

Cheltenhamdailyphoto said...

This is gorgeous, Jules. You need to make a postcard of this at

Jules said...

M & Mme B - so nice to get your message - welcome home. Sorry i didn't see you the other day - it was probably cloudy!!!!

Kris - no that is entirely another burning sensation!!!

Alifan - so glad you received all the tropic good cheer i was sending!!!

Denise - you may have better luck than I had getting on board!!!

ann - you need to pop over - it is cool here - only 30 degrees today

Jules said...

Lynn thanks for the link - I have actually been asked to make some cards for some of the local resorts. This site is great.

Maria said...

It simply looks like in a dream...
With or without champagne... :)
Have a nice weekend!

Irina said...

This picture looks unreal like a fairytale. And I love the bluishness of the palette...

Enigma said...

Oh but would be nice if it WAS yours! I like shots of paradise, especially on a Friday. Have a great weekend!

ancient one said...

Wonderful, beautiful, Photo!! Boats and Water get me every time.. no kidding, that is one of the prettiest scenes ever!

Laura ~Peach~ said...

amazingly beautiful (betcha could not guess that blue is my favorite color) Great SWF!

Arija said...

Maybe they have no eyes to see. It is a lovely day to be on the water and a great shot of it as well.

Angie said...

That is absolutely beautiful! Thank you for your comment on the geese again on my other blog.I don't find them noisy as I love to hear them flying past.Now, if it was a flock of starlings! :)

alicesg said...

Beautiful ship and the water looked so lovely. The photo make a good hang up piece in the room. Have a nice weekend. :)

Jules said...

Lavender and Vanilla Friends of the Gardens said...

A great boat or would it be offended to be called a boat? I am a land-rat but still admire a great
sailing yacht. Wonderful photo Jule. I understand your wish; dreaming is nice too!

GMG said...
