Down Where The River Meets The Ocean


Another gorgeous day yesterday.....cool but hey, won't hear me complaining!!


There were half a dozen 'parasurfers' honing their sport, 
 zig-zagging up and down the beach front.


Of course this sport is dependent upon the wind and it was there in force.


The colours of the kites/parachutes are always bright against the blue sky.


Here comes a giant butterfly....ready for take-off!!

  2. Jim, these photos are beautiful! And that is definitely the biggest butterfly I've ever seen. What the heck are you easterners feeding them? :)

  6. Beautiful photos, Jim. The sun was delightfully warm here yesterday. Then came the cloud cover and there was a definite chill in the air.

      Sophie can attest to that!

    1. Hi Kathy. Sophie is so used to seeing surfers of all types on the beaches here that she is more concerned about her ball and chasing it!!
