Watery Wednesday

This week we are enjoying a nice leisurely stroll on the beach with an old friend.

But first we have to stop for a tasty treat.

This has to be one of my all time favorite things to do, letting the water lap over my feet and feel the sand between my toes as I look out at the ocean. Maybe I will wait until it gets a little bit warmer though.

Great shots. I like feeling the sand and water between my toes. If I'd seen these earlier I think I would have be at the beach right now. :-)

VALKYRIEN said...

Lovely shots! So great to see the sun sparkling in the waves! And the wind blowing gently through the birds feathers in the second shot - that is a great photo!

What a happy talking seagull. ;-)

Jan said...

Wonderful, Denise. I agree with EG, you were so lucky to find a talking gull.

Mojo said...

Oh yeah. I'm SO ready for some beach time. I need some new photos after all!

Be a seagull
Follow the time passionately
Find within you the very freedom."

I love the sea and walking on a beach and no visit would be right without a seagull!
Lovely photos.

I love walking at the edge of the beach too where an occasional splash of cold water reminds me that yeah I'm on the beach!!!!!

Bim said...

Thanks for the lovingly captured seagull on a beautiful beach.

Will said...

Great photos. The gull looks almost regal and the froth from the waves forms a wonderful backdrop.

You just never get tired of watching the gulls, do you? Thank you for this photo, I don't get to the beach very often these days.

I especially like that last shot~ wish I was there on that beach!

Karen said...

Great photos!! Love the chatty seagull :-)

I really miss the beach.

In New Zealand, I lived about a 10 minute walk from the beach. We used to spend a lot of time there..

Hi Denise, if I could put some words on the third photo, I would say, hey, I better get my pal and invite him to the waters!

This is great watery series of photos! Photos are even more beautiful enlarged because I can see more small details like gulls and the foam of the small waves How much I would love to take a stroll along that sandy beach! Thanks for sharing these lovely photos.

What a delightful post!

Sharon said...

Beautiful shot! I went to the beach last Saturday, hoping to get some seagull shots but I didn't see even one! Now I know where they were:)

Margaret Cloud said...

I also like to stroll on the beach, wish we would warm up a bit. I get a kick out of hearing the chatter of sea gull's, they sound like they are laughing at a joke, nice pictures. Thank you for coming by, have a nice week, which seems to be flying by.

antigoni said...

Very beautiful photos, Denise.

Diane C. said...

Lovely post! It's been years since I've walked on a beach. It looks wonderful!

Tulip said...

great capture of seagull bird. very nice photos.

Tarolino said...

Beautiful captures of the seagull in the sunshine. Most excellent photography as is the pictures of the Bulbul above. A funny looking bird with an equally funny name and to me unknown.

Tammie Lee said...

This is a fun series of images!
