Getting To Know Me


Yesterday morning we 'three amigos' were at the beach.
It was very sunny and calm there...about 6C.


As what happens when 'we three' walk the beach, we each go our separate ways.


Sophie, our dog, proceeds to inspect pretty much everything she encounters
while of course carrying her buddy, Mr. Orangie' and taking the occasional
dip in the ocean to cool off her belly.


Ron is off doing what he does best....looking for that illusive photo op.
On this particular day he was focusing (literally) on rocks.


Me, I was looking out to sea watching the glitter of the sun on the waves
as they quietly rolled in to shore.


And along came this seagull.

    1. He did, Joanne! We know we are very lucky to be only a 5 minute drive from the beach. We spend more time there in the spring and fall/winter....less people and of course cooler!! I know...we are crazy like that!
