At the Beach

FL14sep13-9384

When I think of the beach, I think of blue skies, balmy breezes, green sea oats and soft sand under my bare feet.

I do not think of gray skies, frigid winds, dried sea grasses and frozen ice and snow on the beach.

One day perhaps summer will return.

  1. My friends in Yorkshire refuse to even ask about my local weather and if I bring it up, they “don’t want to talk about it” They were at -2°C today for a high. But when it’s 105° here and you have the lovely ocean to go to……I don’t want to hear about it. 🙂

  2. Enjoy the beauty of balance – seeing the beach in a grey cold condition will bring greater satisfaction and appreciation for those sunny summer beach days 🙂

  3. You need to spend more time on the beach in winter, it’s great! No people, no bugs, and it’s easier to walk on frozen sand than it is the loose sand of summer. Besides your photos show that it’s still beautiful, no matter what time of year it is.

  4. Let’s hope so, but I fear that most of England and Wales will take a long time to drain. More horrific rain and gales expected any moment. In fact, I think they’re just arriving. Where has the sun gone? 😦

  5. Warm weather on its way. Beaches and Blizzards, a post I did for next week. It seems the weather is warming for this weekend, it might bring back the Polar Bear club. I would love to get their photos one day. I like your snowy beach. It shows we have a bit longer to wait.

  6. I love the green in the grasses (again!) against the contrast of the golden looking plumes, the sand, and the blue sky and ocean, really great for sure.

    Then the green is replaced by the ice/snow, the white!! But I like this. Just like my comment on your next post, I like seeing the beach in the off-season. I definitely appreciate winter and the downtown it affords us but mostly because it makes me appreciate the rest of the year that much more. By boyfriend always likes to point out that winter is really only 3-4 months. I can’t wait to see what comes after this intense winter.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Somehow I think green is your favorite color. Green is a wonderful color to love. it is the color of hope, and was my mother’s favorite color as well.

      So far I haven’t had too much downtime as I’m always off doing something. Although I am catching up on a lot of computer work. 3 – 4 months?? Let’s see..November, December, January, February, March, sometimes part of April. What do you think?

      • Believe it or not, green is not my favorite color! But I find it hard to pin down just any color – although I’ve held a deep love for purple all my life – because it always depends on the context. Green is great though, especially mixed with blues and reds!

        That’s great that you’re getting so much computer work done, it can be SOOOOO tedious I know. If kindergarten served me correctly, I think that’s more than 3-4 months. You’re going to feel a great deal of relief I think with each bit of catching up you do.

        🙂
