We spent the day at the beach yesterday.....this flag was just behind where we were sitting. I just had to get a picture of it waving in the wind!
She's A Grand Old Flag...She's a high flying flag and forever in peace may she wave, she's the emblem of the land I love!
The home of the free because of the BRAVE!
This little fella, so cute. I plucked him out of the water and put him up on the rock so I could get a real good close up "action" shot!
Mr. P...."you better not be taking a picture of me to stick on your blog Miss!!" ~ who me, no, I just want to get a picture of you ~ LOL!!! SHHHHHHH don't tell him he is stuck out here in blog land for all eternity!!!
I combed all of the rocks for more starfish and shells. I love to collect shells!
This is the beach side of the causeway, I walked all the way to the end of it ~ BEACH SIDE mind you!!! Some times I was chest deep in the water and sometimes I had to SWIM!!!! But I did it, I had the pockets of my board shorts loaded with shells...then I had to walk, tread, swim back ;D
These guys put on quite a show, a fishing show that is! They were diving head first from way up high right into the water and coming up with tiny little bait fish! I was amazed watching them, quite a skill! I never catch anything but seaweed!
The view across the water, this is Gooseberry Island it's actually at the end of the causeway and really quite pretty. This is where we took Bailey out swimming this past spring, remember I shared the pictures with all of you? Well anyway, I just love coming out here anytime of the year! It may sound silly but my favorite time of the year is late fall through the winter. So desolate and beautiful, quite a place to sit and think! I spent many a winter day out here this past winter walking and thinking about Billy and Justin Simmons, (his momma is very dear to me) and looking out over the water praying out loud to the wind, hoping the my prayers would be carried up up up...seems like all of our prayers are being answered! Continuing to pray for "our" other Justin and his safe return and for all of our troops still fighting!
Until tomorrow, Be Safe & God Bless!
