Dreams Come True



 Two and a half years ago I bought my Canon Rebel.
A friend asked me at that time, "What pictures do you want to take?"
I said, "I want to travel the world taking pictures of Adirondack chairs overlooking water."
On Monday I found that chair.
A blue Adirondack chair sitting on a rocky shore in Victoria, BC, Canada.
It was just as I imagined it to be.
A dream come true.
Do you have dreams?
Are you watching for them to come true?

What an absolutely wonderful dream! I hope that part of the dream involves sitting in these chairs for a long spell!

This photo is a wonderful start! Look forward to seeing more!

My dreams, still working on that! I think I need to spend some time in the chair pictured here, pondering the question.

And did you sit in that chair and just relax and watch the water? Now that would be a nice photo! Here's to dreams come true.

Do you have a new dream to follow now, Marilyn?

How wonderful that you realized this dream and it met your great expectation of the moment.

My dream of opening the tea room has been realized. I am working on the next one.
