Today I’m sharing the beautiful BLUE skies with their billowing clouds over the morning BLUE Lake Ontario waters. This picture was so majestic and so free-spirited….I stood there for some time just admiring the beauty of it.  The clouds were like huge castles lifting up to the heavens.  Everything was so peaceful.  I took this picture yesterday morning during breakfast.  A short time later the skies were no longer so beautiful.  They turned a gray and the waters became choppy.  Rains followed. 

This is the cottage next door with its BLUE shutters.  There is a cute little sun porch facing the water.  Its a lovely spot to sit and admire the BLUE waters and BLUE skies and boats on the water.  Looking past the sun porch far in that direction is Canada where I live.  We look there throughout the day trying to compare the weather there by the skies way overhead.

Sometimes the skies over the water look like this…

Thank you for visiting my Blue Monday.  I hope you enjoy all the different Blue Monday pictures offered today through Sally’s blog.

Have a lovely day.   Judi

  1. Beautiful blue. I love the view from the cottage and can see myself there on a porch, wrapped in a warm afghan, sipping a cup of freshly brewed coffee. sigh*
    I wanted to say I went back to your 9/2 post and the painting your son did is very good. The colors still appear to be very vibrant too. Thank you for sharing that memory. Hugs.

  2. Thank you for your kind comment on my site and for asking me to be included in the Giveaway, it could be my great pleasure !

    Your blue photos are so very beautiful and familiar in same time. We have this kind of cottages , one at a small lake and one on an island of a big lake. And I am always missing those places, when I can not be there.

    Happy blue Monday to you, Judi!

  3. Judi, what a beautiful blue site you have to dream. I live on a lake, but it’s more like a puddle compared to this! Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday!

    Hi Judi,

    Thanks for your visit.

    I think I did enter a comment in your initial give-away post ~ I would definitely LOVE to win!

    I’m still recuperating from the attack by the crazed neighbor, riding his lawn tractor. (you can read about it by clicking on my ER posts) That’s why I’ve been away…dealing with the aftermath of being hit, thrown and run over by a 600# machine, driven by my neighbor…on my own property.
