Martinique Beach Pt 3

Since so may of my loyal followers expressed
such amazement with the surf and beach pictures last week...

I thought I`d nag Ron to show you just a few more from another angle.
Needless to say, my boundless energy was heightened with the pounding surf
so I took full advantage of the deserted expanse.

This is a small cove nestled at the beginning of Martinique beach,

which has a handful of cottages/winter homes nearby.

From their perspective, the waves put on a pretty good show,

and today, we were beyond ourselves watching the continuous onslaught of wave action.

Some of the structures are the simple Cape Cod style,

while another is more modern, situated in a very precarious position.
You can see the stone wall being erected and the back hoe sitting to the left.

I think I would prefer living back from the shore,
since Mother Nature has been mighty active/destructive this passed decade.

While you enjoy these typical Nova Scotian beach shots,
I`ll take a shot at Mr. Orangie.


  1. With all the exercise your people give you, Sophie, you must be in superb physical shape!

  2. Love the fact that, even with all the beautiful ocean wave shots, Sophie's focus is on the big orange BALL! Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

  3. Again I will say the wave action pictures are amazing. I am with you with wanting to have a house that is a bit further from the waves. Mother Nature has a way of teaching someone a lesson about getting too close.

  4. You are just making me so jealous, Sophie. Now I really, really miss the beach! =) Funny you mentioned Cape Cod because I'm originally from Massachusetts. I love the Cape! Tell Ron those are some amazing beach shots. Was this taken midday when the sun was high? Just curious.

    Looks like Mr. Orangie accompanies you to the beach more than any of your other toys. Lucky!

  5. Thank you! What amazing photos and such power and beauty in those waves.
    And, glad to see the orange ball there Sophie! :)

    Sweet hugs,
    Sierra Rose

  11. Yesterday, I got kicked out of your blog as I tried to comment. Several time. I really tried hard! Just letting you know. I loved the post though. And this one is so magnificent and must have had you longing for a dip in the ocean.--Inger
