I'm Baaacccckkkk!!!

I'm back from the beach! Got in last night, but was so tired and still in vacation mode that I just went to bed. I'm "trying" to get back in the swing of things. The beach was gorgeous, the house was fabulous, and the weather was beautiful. You really couldn't ask for more. It was hard to get up this morning and drag myself to work...UGH! But, I came back with great memories and photos to share.

The morning view from our porch - AMAZING. You could literally throw a rock from the porch and hit the ocean, and that's at low tide. Also, under the pier...looks like trees are growing in the sand.

This weekend I was inspired by Jurate Bang's photos, and aimed to get photos that captured small moments. I love how the bowl and glass picture turned out...a lovely beach breakfast. The sand picture was one of those happy accidents...I took the picture by mistake and ended up with a nice surprise. Oh, and we flew a kite and hung out on the hammock...little joys.

And, of course, some beach wildlife photos. A sandpiper bird and a crab ready for action. Crabs were all over the beach...it was an amazing site, and they were so fun to watch.

I'm starting to feel rejuvenated and re-inspired, and I hope you do too. I'll get back to normal posting hours, and catch up on e-mails. How was your weekend?

I was going to say something about the tiny feet you have, but someone beat me to it. Well, with the photos you shared of your great capturing moments at the beach, I say your tiny feet goes well with your big soul.

Welcome home Pleasie.

Robin said...

Gorgeous photos! I rented a house once in Nags Head with the ex's entire family. The beach was beautiful, the house was stunning, and the time with the family was, um, not nearly as relaxing as your getaway looks.

quaint handmade said...

oh, i love your photos - the one of the crab is so cute and turned you into a wild-life photographer, too.
