Whoa! Jes' spectacular!! (an perfect fer a Fishy...heh.)

Gotta say mah favorites is the Venetian regatta and the camp kids--ho! But oh how glorious the big American's cup stuff. Wow,--great MM!

Great minds think alike. I have a folder of Regatta pics but they weren't as good as yours so I'm glad I switched.

You can still WIN the Troll Points contest!

Happy Mute Monday!

It almost makes me want to go out and splash in the water. That building in Jakarta is wild. Great pics Fishy and Happy Mute Monday.

My arms hurt just looking at these. :-) Great pick and happy happy MM!

Ree said...

You got me in the beginning, trying to make rowing work. ;-)

Happy Mute Monday.

I've lived landlocked most of my life so I'm fascinated by any kind of life on or in the water. These are just beautiful. Have a Happy Monday!

Aunty Belle,
Fishies do likes they waters! Yep that Venetian regatta looks good enough to research regattas in Venice in case I need to cross the pond for the experience.

Troll,
Do you live on, near the waters?
Will visit the contest shortly!

K9,
Glad you liked the art! Actually there is tons of regatta art going back centuries. Seems like more than Fishy's like to make a
splash!

Gypsy,
The Regatta building in Jakarta is impressive. I have to have some architecture in my postings! Go splash, it always makes a girl feel better!

Boxer,
You think rowing, sailing, swimming is more tiring on arms than boxing? I do think if you are boxer fit then that is great cross training for splashy sports as well!

Ree,
Did you scroll down to the kids in the Great Pumpkin Regatta? Talk about work....Jack Sprat pumpkins are not anything I want to sit in never mind try to row!!!!

Moi,
fishy wishes for you a bathtub big enough to splash in...water is fun!!!! Happy Mute Monday :-)
