Saturday by the Sea


This morning, the sun was shining, so the beach was calling. When I got there, the road was lined with cars from one end to the other. Every surfer on the West Coast must have been there. 



The waves were spectacular. A cacophony of hoots, laughter, joyous shrieks and happy dog barks
filled the air, counterpoint to the roar of the waves.


When a photo opp like this walks by, one must be swift with her camera to capture it. The surfers watching them pass seemed to appreciate the beauty as well. 







I like to play with my camera at the edge of the water, trying to capture the changing patterns on the sand as the waves withdraw. So I was standing there, back to the ocean, when suddenly a big wave rushed in, filling my boots, soaking my jeans to the knee, and almost knocking me down. I emerged nonchalantly, cane tap tap tapping, pretending the immersion was intended. LOL.



I came home with my heart singing (and with a jelly doughnut for dessert tonight.) I tell you, life doesn't get much better.

  1. Oh, the ocean. How I miss it, even just 'my' Semiahmoo Bay, looking across to Birch Bay and Point Roberts. Hardly the wide open ocean that filled your boots, Sherry, but I miss it.
