 I stood on guard with Jim as he took pictures of the surf with his new Nikon D90.
(You may be interested in knowing that the first home is a B and B
smack dab on the edge of the embankment.)

After realizing Jim was pretty safe,
I exercised by running the length of the beach.
I've noticed every 5th to 7th wave is more expressive and demonstrative.
(no rogue waves sneaking up on my guys today though)

These two shots above show you the beauty of these waves that I passed.
The second is a cropping of the previous shot.
(Just look inside that curl, really amazing)

I was intrigued with the edge of this wave.
It looks like hardened molten glass.
(Again, 2nd photo is a cropping of previous)

I was mightily drenched with these waves by the time I reached Ron.
No matter,
one shake and I was ready for more!
Love it!


  1. Sophie, tell your Dad's these are wonderful shots!

  2. Fantastic shots! -I can see what you mean about the molton glass effect- love the sunlight reflecting off the sea too !

  3. more unbelievable beauty...and the sea ain't bad either!!! stay dry and warm sophie, it still isn't quite beach weather... :)

  4. You be careful out there! Our coast has terrible undertows, so poor Tucker has to stay on leash. Jim did a great job with the photographs! The waves are beautiful.

  5. Sophie...wasn't the water cold????

  6. Look at how the ocean looks so blue, yet, in the curl of the wave, the water is green. Isn't it amazing what different light does to things? I'm glad you watched over Jim while he was than close to the waves. I think I need a relative of yours to watch over me when I go hiking, judging from yesterday.

  7. Great pictures..glad you were there to snoopervise
    Benny & Lily

  8. Did you shake on Ron?

    We love those water pictures and can almost hear the waves and feel the spray.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  10. Once again, fabulous pictures! And I love that you don't mind getting right in that water to test out those waves!!

  11. Beautiful pictures, sophie. We especially like the first one :)

    Wags, gin, Bud n Shadow

  12. I would love to be with you, there at the beach, Sophie! Look at all the wonderful cast-offs that the sea has laid out for you on the sand!

    Beautiful pictures!

  13. Truth be told! Ron took all these pics yesterday, great eh? He forgot to tell you that he too was soaked up to his knees!!! Just a little thing he left out!
    I was down the other end of beach almost getting hit by a couple waves.

  14. Oh to live by the ocean!!! So beautiful!

  15. Wow--those are really great photos!! I love catching good wave pics and try to count when the biggees come in. Unfortunately, we don't live that close to the ocean.....

  16. Absolutely beautiful! Thanks for taking such good care of your daddy, Sophie.

  17. Terrific photos. How does your dad like the D90. Mom just recently upgraded to the D90 as well but hasn't had time to really play with it much.

  18. Absolutely gorgeous. Those waves are like magical curls...

    Glad that no rogue waves were sneaking up on you!
