Friday Randomness

Wednesday was hubby's birthday, so we took the day off and headed for the beach. :D It was a beautiful day, the sun was out, but it wasn't too hot, and the breeze was nice and cool.

We had lunch at this place called 101 Ocean, and then spent a few hours hanging out on Anglins Fishing Pier and wanted to share some pictures with you.



Barnacles

What a yummy snack!!!!

I love looking out towards the horizon. Could watch it all day. :)

View towards land from the pier.

I love everything about the ocean ...
When I'm rich, I'd buy a place here. ;)

Our shadows being cast onto the ocean.

The crash of the waves onto the beach churns up a conglomeration of sand and shells.
It's hypnotic watching clear water become murky and clear up again,
all in the matter for a few seconds, over and over...

This was after 3pm, towards the hottest part of the day.
Even the birds were seeking shade. LOL!!

We really should do this more often. It's so good for the soul. :)

Happy Hermitting everyone!!!!! If you haven't sign up for IHSW, it's not too late! :)

Wow looks like you had an awesome day with some beautiful and refreshing weather! I particularly love the photo of you and DH in shadow. It kinda looked like a romantic "Titanic" moment. Sweeeeett!!! Happy birthday to your Hubby.

Lonneke said...

Oh, that looks so lovely!
Imagine, here it is fall with mist en grayness, and the leaves have already fallen for the most part, so not much color left.
I am sucking up the sunshine in your pictures! :)
What a nice way to spend a birthday!
Happy belated birthday for your hubby.

Pretty Pictures! I need to venture up there to your beaches. I think Ft Lauderdale's beaches are prettier than Miami's personally. Plus Ft. Lauderdale just seems much cleaner to me.
