Memorial Day in the US is the traditional start to summer, which brings throngs of people to lakes, rivers and oceans.
Perhaps, but not in 2020…
…as the threats of exposure and illness from the coronavirus keep people home and away from their favorite leisure spaces.
Even as most US states have opened up for some recreational activities, social distancing and closed parking lots to beaches, trails and parks may still keep people away.
This week’s Sunday Stills photo challenge theme is waterworld. If you are one of the lucky ones who can enjoy being in or around the water, tell us about your favorite water world. Show us in recent photos. Can’t enjoy the water where you live? Share your favorite water photos from your archives.
Did you know…? “About 71 percent of the Earth’s surface is water-covered, and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth’s water.”Water Science School
Our seasonal windsurf campground in the Sacramento River Delta opened this weekend with rules for social distancing in place. Not hard to keep your distance while sailing or paddling…in light wind conditions…
Or in 40 mph winds!
After a busy day on the water, we can enjoy the sunset,
…then wake to a new day.
Some more of my favorite places to play in and around the water.
From Northern California’s Lake Tahoe, Lake Natoma and Yosemite National Park…
…heading South to San Diego Harbor,
to Baja, Mexico in the Sea of Cortez…
…and Westward to the Hawaiian Islands…
We enjoy life and live in a Water World!
Please wear a life jacket. Or borrow one.
For Sunday Stills this week, show us your own water world and what you love about it!
May is National Water Safety Month. Please stay safe in and around the water.
Thank you to the servicemen and women who have sacrificed for our country.
