As chilly it could have been it looked more like a good day for flying kites. Some years ago my life was in a sea resort and I did just that when not beach season. Even in the beginning of June in Kinnakeet, some days winds could be fierce and temperatures might dictate the need for jackets or sweaters for a stroll on the sandy beaches. Even so, there is a beauty in the dunes, grasses, waves and the things or creatures that might be flying. It is a rarity to have such a close up look when a bird comes as close as this beauty. Was I going to be attacked? This one got very, very close.June 6, 2012 Like Add a Comment

You feel insignificant and yet thrilled at the majesty of it all. And at the end of the day, the sun sets, and it just fades away...April 25, 2012 Like Add a Comment
