    Oh my gosh you are so creative! Each week I can’t believe what you come up with! Love it! I love, love, love all animals too. Each and every one. Dogs are my favorites though! I love the ocean also, I grew up in Hawaii (no longer live there) so I took it for granted. There is nothing more peaceful than looking out into the ocean.

    As a life long New Englander- yes to scallops! I love them baked New England style, I love them sautéed and golden on both sides but not over cooked, but mostly I love them deep fried with lemon in the summer, preferably from a beachside shanty.

  13. I love the ocean. I never get to go but if I could I would live near the ocean. I love books and blogging and views. We have several things in common. I love getting to know more about the person behind the blog. Thank you for sharing.

    I love this Lynne. We have a lot in common. The funny thing is my husband’s middle name was Albert, his father’s name was Albert and my second grandson has Albert as his middle name. Also, my DIL has a brother named Albert. Not a common name these days though. I love that picture of you, you look so happy. I will keep praying that your eye issues clear up soon. I always love getting to know more about my blogger friends. Have a great weekend.
