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.


  1. Nice! Something about waves like that will leave me staring in awe for hours. And what a great action shot of Miss Sofie.

  2. spectacular is one word I'll also use to describe, that's two!

  3. Magnificent photos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you for sharing, with this ocean-deprived blogger.

    Now a request, please. [You know how "Olden Aunties" are... Never satisfied.] I'd love to HEAR the waves. Could you please take a wee cam video? Then I could hear them? Thank you!!!!!!!!!

    Gentle hugs,

  4. Wow - what a wild and gorgeous windswept beach!

    Love that pic of you in action, kicking up the sand... Delightful.

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

  6. Nice action shot of you and Mr. Orangie!

  7. Please, can I come stay with you? Nova Scotia looks spectacular!!

  8. Hi Y'all,

    My Humans love the sound of the surf. Great pictures.

    Y'all come by now,

  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!

  10. Ahhh we could smell the salt air!

  11. Would love <3 to video + sound but guess what we don't have any video camera yet...I know...WHAT are you behind the times or what!

  12. So beautiful....oh....Sophie and the scenery!!!

  13. Great action shots ! fantastic waves-can`t believe Sophie enjoys dunking herself in that cold water though ! brr !

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

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  15. Wow, Sophie, those are some waves!

  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.

  17. I don't think I'll ever tire of looking at your beach photos!

  18. Wow! Every photo is spectacular. And, the action one of Sophie turning to grab her orange ball is just amazing!

    What a stunning world you live in!

  19. I swear I felt those waves splash on my face!
    Oh the waves are so close, and so beautiful


    WONDERFUL ACTION and EMOTIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY, Ron......FABULOUSLY refreshing and energizing and invigorating ( especially for me....after a spring-flu )...!

    ....SUPERFANTASTICATHLETIC SHOT of snagging Sophie after her Mr. Orangie....with so much energy and power and flying sand.....FANTASTICACTIONpowerfullandelegantshot...!!!!!

    Jim was looking for...? In the end he found it...??? He looks soooo tranquil and relaxed and cool in front of the splashing waves.....WOW!!!

    Ciao ciao amici laccaille & elvira

  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.


This 'DOODLE' is looking forward to your comment....don't be shy...all I do is SNIFF & LICK!
