CASHMERE GREY ~ RYTHM & CERULEAN BLUES ~ DEEP MANDARIN ORANGE


My day!
My sandy, driftwoody, bouldery 
24 hours on the beach ~


run the colour spectrum 
from soft muteds to rich exuberants


 Right now I'm helping my new friend
who just happens to be ruddy red
offsetting the soft greys of the ocean and sky


the titch of baby blue streaks across in the distance
as the lone surfer waits patiently
(oh my they do have patience)


swooping past like aerial artistes
these birds dive-bomb 
looking for insects
before heading south


Then from out of nowhere
the blues
grab your attention and draw you in even further.


 More birds clamour for position 
with lift off and landing gears
ready at any moment.


My life on the beach erupts into more JOY
than I could ever imagine


as the vibrancy of reds and oranges 
reflect Mr. Orangie,
making it so much easier to see him
and to zero point snag him
once again.


I trot towards the sun
expecting but a brief moment of
"Ooohs and Aaaahs"
from the onlookers.


"Come on along!"
This is one of those times 
that you can feel the colours
feel them coursing through your veins. 


Thanks so again for putting up
with my DOODLE NONSENSE.
It does take plenty of us to make the world go 'round.

    1. Oh that is so refreshing to hear, because my Dad sometimes thinks that too many surfing / sunset pictures can be

      "OK enough show us something new".

      It's just that this time of year is so surfing beach and sunset oriented that it's best to catch the pictures when one can!

      Thanks for the feedback!

      Sophie for Ron (who's finding the cold air is starting to infiltrate again ~~ winter is fast approaching)

  5. Magnifique !!!!! #8, can I please have this for my screensaver? but in saying that, it was way TOOOO hard to choose. You are a master at putting the sea, stones, and Sophie in the pictures, and words to fit. Make the most of your stunning Autumn days.Hugs to all, Jean. p.s. all OK down here once again.

    1. By all means Jean ~~ I know Sophie would love to be popping up on your desktop every day. You can see the JOY in her gait as she cantors down the sunset beach.

      So good to hear "all's well in WhoVille"!!! My attempt at being humourous and concerned at the same time.

      All the best to Hugh and remind him (as if you haven't 1000 times) that he must obey the powers that be because physical exercise and de-hydration can be a nasty thing!

    1. Boulders are like trees here, they are everywhere!

      Which is a very good thing as Martha Stewart used to say.

      So many colours and sizes. When my Mom was alive she would visit and we would walk the beaches and dunes. She then would start pointing out ALL the white rocks that she absolutely needed for her garden. We were so strong in those days and very obedient. SMILES!!

      I still use the round rocks as doorstops etc!

    1. This cyber-world certainly helps with the inability to witness things first hand, in a good of course!!

      You have your mountain and plains which I so love to view and would love to climb again some day!
