Seeing Red





  Mrs. Matlock’s seven week  Rainbow Summer School is now in session~ and since this is Summer School, I thought I would join the fun for Summer Sundays :-)



This week’s color of the Rainbow assignment is Red~ I thought I’d share some Red  we’ve seen while boating on the Lake.


I’m looking forward to summer school:-) My poor husband/boat captain is going to tire, I fear, before summer school is over~every time I say: “I spy something ROYGBIV. . . Stop so I can take a picture. . .”




 Lots of red in boats. . .




Jet Skis & Vests. . .



Boat Covers. . .



 Reflections. . .



Tires repurposed as bumpers. . .



I see eyes and a smile on this red boat~




Kayaks. . .





I have a friend named Rett~  I wonder if this is her cute boat?





 Love this nautical style house with red roof. . .




Watch the boats go by, while sitting in a red swing. . .





. . . or  red chair~





Follow wake courtesy & obey the signs, please~




Gas is cheaper on the road than at the marina, if you want to fill up your cans. . .



Observe the rules for fueling safety, at the marina.



The gas-jockeys at the marina will be happy to assist you. . .




 You may need some snacks while you’re on the water. . .





And in case of a Red Alert at Maguire Nuclear Station, you can find your Nuclear Emergency Preparedness Guide, here.




Here’s wishing you no Red Alerts wherever your are :-)

 Visit Jenny Matlock for more journeys down the rainbow~

I’m also joining The Tablescaper for Summer Sundays~  for what Summer means to you :-)

    Beautiful photos, you really found some great examples of red on the lake. I LOVE the red roofed house! And the Joker boat cover made me smile. Great choice for Red day!

    I just knew you would have something special to share! Had to laugh when I read Roy G Biv. As a first grade teacher this was standard memory assistance. ;-)

    I love all the red objects you found. The red porch swing would be wonderful to sit in and observe all the red things near by.

    Oh dear – got all excited about your white post and put my red comment there – colour blindness???? Oh well, I’ve subscribed now, so I won’t be missing anything more.

    Hey Lake Neighbor,

    Love your red post, and especially the last picture – it cracks me up! I finally get to see water (other than the pool) this weekend – headed to Morehead City in a couple of hours for a weekend of R&R!
    Enjoy the lake this weekend!

    That is a lot of red.
    Beautiful lake on a lovely day.
    Great post.

    Those photos really make me want to go to the lake!

    I love that red chair…need one on my front porch I think, maybe with some geraniums…

  20. July 29, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    Beautiful pictures of red!

  23. July 29, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    That’s a good catch that the one boat looks like eyes and smile, lol. I love the roof on that house that red color really adds a beautiful touch to that home. You found a lot of great red things on the water. Good job.

  24. July 29, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    Oh, this really makes me think I should run away to a lovely lake…just for a weekend.

  25. July 29, 2010 at 11:46 pm

    You did a most fabulous job of sighting reds all along your watery trail. I am so impressed and I
    truly loved your pictures.

    What a fun and super colorful post! LOVE it!

  28. July 30, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    Those are some fun red pictures. What did that ROY etc stand for? Just curious? Now, I think I need to go swimming.

  29. July 30, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    AWESOME red pics…great boating post :)

  30. July 31, 2010 at 8:11 am

    Oh! Wonderful REDs here! Can I come along on your color photo hunts? How relaxing and fun that would be…it looks gorgeous on the water.

    Blessings & Aloha!
    (hubby and son are sleeping, so trying to finally get some blog reading done, visit and reply to comments left on my past two posts!) Thank you so much for stopping by…please come back any time.

    Oh Mary…what FUN you’ve found, all in RED!!! I WISH that “Retta” boat was mine. We’ve owned them before but they’re a great deal of upkeep & DH just can’t do it anymore.
    Thanks for the shout-out. I just subscribed to your feeds so I don’t miss any more of your cute posts like this one.

  32. July 31, 2010 at 5:23 pm

    What a fun, fun, fun RED post.

    I am still laughing about this: I spy something ROYGBIV

    That is still making me smile!

    Your “spying” was great!

    Was a fabulous Red link!

    Once again, great water shots with reflections I adore. So much red on the lake. Wow, what a colorful place.

    Great shots, this is what summer is all about!

  35. August 1, 2010 at 9:58 am

    Oh what a creative post! Love the water, boats, fun and yes, RED!

  36. August 1, 2010 at 10:31 am

    What a delight to see picture after picture of red on the lake. I loved it all. Even though purple is my favorite color, I love red and pink right after that. Red on boats is really beautiful. You created a great post.

  37. August 1, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    You found an impressive amount of RED. You don’t think of red as a water color. I love the reflections.

    Thanks so much for being a part of “Summer Sundays”.
