On the Water & #Treesquare July 3rd

The theme for the Lens-Artists, which is hosted by Johnbo this week, is ‘on the water”

Let’s go beachside again this week and also include our tree squares for day #3.

Starting with palm trees and a man carrying his surfboard (which is meant to ride the waves “on the water”)

This next photo has more palm trees along the water, and if you look out on the water, you can see the launch pad for the Kennedy Space Center (center left):

That previous photo reminded me of Bushboy’s challenge, which is to share the last image on the card or camera rollMy last image for June was of Blue Origins (Jeff Bezos’ Space compound) in Merritt Island, FL When you drive by these buildings it makes you feel so small – they are massive structures and there is a row of them.

This next palm tree photo, along the water, shows something very current.

Notice the 5G tower to the lower, middle right. Whew, reminds me that tech sure is advancing.

See the mini van on the right? Those folks were filling up their gas tank when their dog accidentally locked the car doors. They were not able to get back into their van. We felt so bad. They were waiting for help as we left.

Let’s close with two last “on the water” images – with these lovely walkers:

  1. Not a fan of enormous buildings like the Blue Origins and not a huge Bezos fan either, but I did spot the launch pad in the distance in that second shot. Those poor people whose dog accidentally (we hope) locked the door. The moral of the story: always have a second key or originals on you when you get out of the van/car. 🙂

    1. Hi Janet – I felt so bad for the man and his son!
      Wish I had a “slim Jim” to help (think that is what those were called – and talk about a major unplanned detour for the day!

      And not sure if you heard that on July 20th Bezos’s team is taking an 82 year old trained astronaut to space (she never made it in her younger years) and I think that was a very sweet thing for them to do – 👩‍🚀🤍

  2. Good one Yvette. I did have to laugh at those poor folk locked out of their car by their dog. That certainly is a big blue building. Thanks for joining in 🙂 🙂

    1. Hi BB
      We felt so bad for the folks locked out
      We saw them go from super angry to then trying to woo the dog to hit the switch (while they waited for help to come)

  3. It must have been frustrating for that couple who left their dog in the van. I guess that in the future, they will remember to take the keys with them.

    Thanks for participating in my challenge this week. Yours is a great collection of images on the subject of water.

    1. Hi Johnbo – I agree so much that they likely will never let it happen again / and will be quite mindful of having the key with them
      And thank you for hosting this week – 💦💧

  4. It is so cool to see Blue Origin building in Merritt Island Fl. I am looking forward to see them put the rockets into orbit like SpaceX. After seeing video how rocket are made and rocket designs recently, I appreciate more about these company efforts put into design and building rockets. There is no easy feast all around.

    1. Well said YC
      ☀️
      And while all this is super great – I just hope we are also making sure we all stay healthy and secure
      I was just watching part if a show called “China’s Silk Road” and maybe I am still “primed” from the WW2 shows I watched – but the Silk Road seems a little scary
      And recently had a student elaborate on his view about some of China’s goals and how they are setting a foundation in Europe
      So with that said – space exploration is awesome and we were I FL when they sent satellites 🛰 up (that was a cool sound) but let the world please not forget other important things – especially with issues of security and not missing what is in plain sight

  5. The current heat way has me wanting to visit the New Jersey shore but everyone else in New Jersey has the same idea. The beaches are crowded and the shore traffic driving is tiring.

    1. whew – that sounds like stress and maybe too much stress for right now – and for us – we do try and go to the beach in the off times – like we stayed away around the Fourth of July because of th traffic and crowds you mentioned – (and thanks for the comment)

  6. No treats for that doggo for sure. Those palm trees lining the beachy areas sure are picturesque and what a wonderful beach these two couples are strolling along, one couple are barefoot and the other couple are barefoot as well, but carrying their sandals, (which hopefully don’t end up dropped on the sand and left behind).

    1. Hahaha – love your notes about hopefully they do not leave the sandals behind!
      And appreciate your comment Linda – and the first time I saw that particular launch area was 1990 and the road (route 50) comes right up to it and then you have to turn either left or right. Many memories along that road –
      And hope your week is going well

      1. I thought of that forlorn sandal in the prior post right away. I did see the Kennedy Space Center when I visited Florida in 1972. I remember touring the grounds, but not much about inside. We were in Florida visiting family friends and went on a three-day Bahama Islands cruise. The Blue Origin buildings are all abuzz I guess with the upcoming launch on the 20th. It was/is a short week and I’m grateful for that Yvette – tomorrow is Friday already. Hopefully your week is going well too.

        1. Hi Linda – I think there are things going on all the time with the space coast – last time we were there some company sent 88 satellites into space (heard the sonic boom) –
          Or something like that went up
          And your visit in 1972 sounds like a lot of fun

        2. Yes, you’re right and yesterday everyone was abuzz about the spaceflight and today Virgin Galactic’s stocks are slumping big time. Kind of surprised me Yvette. We took a few pictures outside of the space capsules that h ad returned to Earth and were preserved for posterity.

        3. Yes, to see how it all started as to space exploration. I enjoyed reading the recaps of man’s landing on the moon during the 50th anniversary two years ago. Both the moon landing and Woodstock were the big highlights of that year plus the demise of the Beatles.

  7. Nice collection for the theme. Each photo shares a story but I feel sorry for the ones with locked door. Easy to judge but I think it must have happened so quickly.

    1. Hi / the locked doors happened very quickly and right in front of us – we saw them distressed and felt bad pulling away while they waited for the help to come
      Thanks for the comment and hope you ha e a good day
