Aliens...I tell you!


This soft, brown, salty carpet of seaweed appeared on the shore
after Super Storm Sandy passed by...
and yes I am standing in the middle of it.


This camouflage moment is truly uncanny, 
see how 
I match the colours on the beach....


and behind me the surfers took full advantage of Sandy...
I guess the perfect waves were the attraction.


But here is the gist of my story today...
I found a 3-legged creature's footprints
made of stone or perhaps they turned to stone.


I'm outta here...just plain creepy.


I ended up on MacDonald Hill and
this is what I saw below....


a lone paddle surfer either learning the ropes or an introvert...


and a doggy and owner watching the tide 
coming in around them...
*watch out*
 super wet ain't half of what's going to happen to you!


But folks,
my mind keeps trailing back to the boardwalk..
~~~I tell you~~~
Aliens have landed 
and 
we better head for the hills!

    1. Seaweed Invasion of the MONSTROUS KIND!!!! Seriously super storm Sandy did a lot of churning!

  11. I like aliens, Sophie! From a safe distance! The ET kind. Not the kind of alien that went after Sigourney Weaver.
    Smart dog - when in doubt RUN for the hills! If all else had failed, you could have hidden in the seaweed.

    I'm still worried about that dog and owner walking on the sandbar with the tide coming in! They probably had to do some scrambling in the cold wet.

    Ron, your photos are compelling as always. I loved the dreamy one of the surfer and the waves and the blurry one of Sophie running for the hills. iPhoto is not doing it for me any more! I'm going to have to step it up. Your photos are so artistic and inspirational.

    1. Sigourney Weaver and squishy disgusting phlegmy aliens....ewwww! Now if it was an X-File alien...I could handle that.
      The lone person with the dog was being surrounded by water...do you think I should have stuck around! I've been in that place before and yes...didn't notice the water creeping up on me!
      So happy my pics inspire you....I used editing systems to create an effect that I need...I LOVE DOING THIS>>>>it's my world now....thanks for your kind words.

  13. Dear Sophie,

    I love stinky seaweed. Did you smell some good smells? I am glad you made it through the thing called "Sandy" safe and sound, and that your beach is still there for you to enjoy. Beware large, three-legged stone monsters!

    Licks,
    Cobi

    1. Trick photography...Sharon...the lay of the land is such that the waves only go so far as they crash...Sophie knows this now and isn't nearly as wary as she used to be. MacDonald Hill had some great views that day....Sophie got herself into some trouble on the hill...DEAD FISH>>>>>BATH TIME!lol

  20. Spooky stuff, Sophie, but you don't need to run away. Samson says all you need to do is growl. Like he did when the blue moon brought some strange things to life. Do you know how to growl? Maybe you don't, sweet doggie that you are, but you should practice for emergencies, like three footed aliens.
    Ron: Thank you so much for your comment. I am thrilled when you and Jim like my photos, because you two are just so great at it.

I'm a Growler from the Nth Dimension......you should see me protect my guys....you see I look out my kitchen side window and I can see the vet's place and all those doggys coming and going....I send out a beware growl just to let them know who's boss. You see I always want to be in charge...and it works. Now for 3 footed aliens I HEAD FOR THE HILLS>~>>~~~...I outta here!!!
