Martinique Beach Pt 1


Our trip to Martinique Beach was a mind blowing experience!


The waves on this outcrop were hanging off the rocky edge.


I figured I needed to dunk myself very quickly
with the temperature at 17 degrees Celsius.


I noticed Jim was headed for the rocky outcrop.


So, I snagged Mr. Orangie and fell into line!





This is just a sample of why Martinique Beach was so spectacular today.
These waves look ominous but it's actually an optical illusion.
You'll see some mighty wave action again tomorrow.

  5. I'm glad that's an optical illusion because those waves look taller than Jim.

  9. Ha! It looks real enough, to me! I was thinking Jim was going to get soaked and had better leave his bag where it will stay dry!

  14. 17 degrees is way too cold to get in water--even if it is beautiful.

  16. That looks just great - but 17 degC?? that's would be a tad cold in the water.

    All fab photos, but particularly love the action one of Soph with Mr Orange.

  21. i have been wondering for a long time sophie, if you have to get a bath after going to the beach... and if you get sand in daddy's car.. do your cute lil tootsies get muddy, girl? i bet you are a hot mess after your wonderful romps on the beach..

  22. Such a gorgeous place! The shots you guys got of the waves and Sophie's mud slinging :) were incredible! Was there any tide pool life in that rock outcropping?

  23. How was that swim, Sophie? Did the water feel warm and wonderful? You look like you enjoyed your time at the beach. And is Jim walking around with coffee? Too funny!

    Gorgeous photos! I do love that action shot of you and Mr. Orangie.
