Beach Sand Scrub

The recent spate of high surf has robbed us of our pretty little sandy beach.

Not to worry, though. This happens every few years and the sand will be back all nice and clean in a few months. This scrubbing of our beach is actually a very nice service provided by mother nature. Thank you.

 THIS is why you hire a professional photographer!

Do you think shots like these happen by themselves? No way!

Although I took these snapshots yesterday at my friends' wedding, they were all carefully staged by a professional wedding photographer (whose name I do not yet know) while I cheated and shot from behind her.

All I can say is, WOW!

Surf Shots

 Surf was too high and the water too murky for a safe ocean swim this morning, so what to do?

Go photograph surfers, of course.

I'm loving the super zoom feature of my newest teeny-tiny point-and-shoot pocket camera.

Popping Mushrooms

Our mornings are spectacular, but recently we've been getting some pretty solid afternoon downpours. So, mushrooms have been popping up all over the place.

Support from Below

At least four Spotted Eagle Rays kept me company during my ocean swim this morning. Which was good, because I really needed the emotional support. 

I have been working hard at a big photo shoot this week and have not made the time for any exercise. Today's swim was a struggle, but having an escort was really encouraging and made a big difference.

Greatest Job

I've been streamside all week taking photographs for the landowner.

I have the world's greatest job!

Goofy Wedding

Part of the fun of walking the beach is never knowing who or what you'll see.

This morning was a very goofy wedding where the guests were strongly encouraged to dance along with the silly music.

And there was this guy who stayed in his head stand for the entire time I was on the beach.
