Winter Crepuscular Rays


Standing on guard is something I have mastered
especially because Mr. BlueWhistleBall has joined me....!


As an opening in the clouds appeared  I wandered down the boardwalk 
to the beach for a search....a sniff search!
The waters appear to look like platinum or aluminum
with that opening above.


The skies changed just a bit and the rays of light...
became a bit more evident.


My attention was fully engaged
by something hidden under the snow.
I have x-ray sniffer vision, you know.
I was here the other day and I found a tasty morsel.
Shhhh...don't tell anyone why my stomach
was grumbling all night long....shhh!


 I know my guys are excited with sky, water and rocks,
but gees give me a break...
couldn't there be once
 just once
a juicy succulent piece of seaweed, 
unfrozen that is!

  2. I know how you love winter, Sophie, but methinks you will be happy when that seaweed is fresh not frozen!

    Love the sunbeams, Ron!

  5. OK, maybe one of your dads could just drop a special something for you to find? You should hint to them that you would like this!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  6. Amazing photos, once again! Sophie, you have quite a portfolio of images. Have you been contacted yet by a modeling agency? :) I don’t remember Mr. BlueWhistleBall. Is that a new toy you got? Make sure to stay warm on your adventures!

    1. Mr.BlueWhistleBall came in on the scene last year sometime. We found him and he actually whistles when you throw him~~~Sophie enjoys him a lot~~~~only thing is he doesn't float~~~~a non-floater thus the ocean swallows him up....we lost his twin in the river last spring. Sad occasion it was! :-(

  7. Sophie, I can see you use the " Roget's Thesaurus" or ask your Dad about the wonderful word
    " crepuscular", perfect description. I am going to wait until I can use it down here .Wrap up well, still lots of cold days for you. Cheers to all at your place, from Jean.

  15. Crepuscular. Sophie, are you an English teacher because that is a very big word? I thought you were a doodle with x-ray sniffer vision. It seems you are multi-talented. *whispers* Eat whatever morsels you find even if they make your belly grumble. I sniff out and eat "bunny chocolates" from the grass all the time.

    1. Hi~~~~~Ivan & Aston!

      Sophie is so good to me.....she seems to know where to stand when I need a pose!!I always thought that I'd need treats to "con" her, but nope she just uses her ESP and performs very willingly. Did I ever tell you I really love her!!

  18. Hi Sophie! Such beautiful pictures. Platinum water sounds so cool! I always taught my third graders the word "crepuscular" so I'm thrilled you used it. Mr.BlueWhistleBall? - I hoped nothing happened to Mr. Orange. I'm quite fond of him and have been enjoying his adventures with you!
    I'm catching up on your posts. I don't want to miss even one! Belly rubs to you, Girl!

    1. Mr.BlueWhistleBall ~~~ Mr.Orangie ~~~ Mr.Bionic are safe and sound on my bed....I never know who is going to join me on the walks....MBWB doesn't swim~~~he's a sinker, MO has it all together~~~~MB is bright and shiny especially in the sunshine but again not a floater! SOooo I wait beside the car while a decision is made as to who is joining us. I like Mr. Orangie the best because I can CHEW the b'geesus out of him....mmmm!
