Sharing Ocean Snapshots...

Friday morning, we enjoyed a trip
out-of-doors to the ocean.
It was such a beautiful, autumn-like day!
A perfect day to spend at the beach...

And even better sharing it with friends...

The waves were large and loud,
and as the sound of thunder crashing...

The mamas and the younger ones

took a long walk down the beach...

A few delights from our Creator
that we observed and enjoyed along the way...

A half eaten horseshoe crab...

Perhaps not the 'prettiest' sight, but very fascinating! ;o)

This sandpiper and its little friend

walking along the beach with us

The sea oats are always lovely to look at and listen to!

We walked until we reached the pier...

What a sight to see the ocean waves crash underneath!

friend's daughter stepped into this picture
and I thought it was just perfect!
Look at that wave coming! lol

All of the younger children under the pier

Our three youngest...

Up against the wall...

It sure got bright!

On our way back...

Time to play in the water!

Even the older ones...

In addition to Ally's head bobbing in the ocean,

we were amused by the osprey that kept flying overhead.
In the back, a Marine was sitting and waving to us!


It was a beautiful day spent out-of-doors,
enjoying the handiwork of our Creator!

How fun! I miss the ocean so in Texas, the sea is so far away and not as pretty as the ones in California :(

Looks like a wonderful day. Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures. My family and I are heading to the beach next week - looking forward to it. Your post made me look forward to it just a bit more.
Have a wonderful day of worship, Sunday.
In His love,

These are such great pictures. I have to tell you that I have some George Winston piano music playing and it was almost like a beautiful movie listening and seeing your pictures.

You know I always love your ocean photos. That is a great picture of you - looks like a BIG wave getting ready to sweep you off your feet :). Thanks for the day at the beach!

"We need to visit the beach. We need to visit the beach." I guess I need to keep reminding myself to plan a trip to the coastline.

Your pictures are always a lovely reminder of God's beauty in the awe of the great oceans.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Thank you, ladies. We just love going to the ocean. We're thankful the Lord has blessed us with being so nearby.
