Great blue pics but the one with the two children in the backyard pool sent a chill down my back - I have an almost identical photo of my two girls in the same pool and I swear, at first glance, I wondered how you got hold of my photo. My photo would have been taken around 1979 in Canberra.

wow that's a lot of blue Maria!
Great photos. Isn't it interesting to go back over older photos.
The Isle of Capri looks rather nice! cheers Wendy

That is a funny blue theme set. Love it. Happy blue day.

WOW! You had a lot more blue to find - I really had to dig to find blue photos and then I got to thinking... isn't the next color Indigo? What am I going to do - I don't have any.... perhaps creativity and fresh pictures will have to be my way next week. :)
