Oh yeah, Xanadu -- a place I'd like to be...
Hope you are having a great X day!

Lisa J said...

Oh man, I don't know about the X things...Never heard of "Xanadu", but I think I need to go check a few of them out...Between you and the beach pictures and Ann with her From the Front Porch pictures, I think I have found some pretty special Xanadus.

And here I was so worried about X. Of course you came through with something perfect!

Lovely. I want to be on that beach-- and clever choice for abc weds.!

kim-d said...

Yup. I, too, have the "Xanadu" earworm now. But that is okay because I always rather liked that song. Not anywhere near as much as I like the pictures, though. Oh, how I wish I was on a beach somewhere...

Laura ~Peach~ said...

Kacey said...

Love the deep green of the breaking waves in the first shot. Idyllic it is.

Oh i feel a song coming on! Great idea for X & beaut pictures. I didn't know that's what 'xanado' meant, so THANKS!

"Where Alph, the sacred river, ran ... down to a sunless sea."
Thank you for the beautiful image and reminder of "Kubla Khan"!
Honeydew and milk of Paradise for you,

Merisi said...

Sorry, forgot to mention that Authorblog's David sent me over here! :-)

Granny Smith said...

Everybody's idea of paradise! AND a word from one of my favorite poems. "In Xanadu did Kublla Khan/ a stately pleasure dome decree...". And this post is a pleasure.

Makes me want to go back where there are beautiful sunsets and no husbands, kids or grandkids. Oh where or where are the peaceful days?
