Sky Watch 6

This is it the best I can give ya...we had rain for 4 days at the beach. Last night the sun tried to peek out towards sunset. For maybe an hour and a half, people ran out and tried to take in a moment of beach ambiance. Sorry for the bad photo's, but this really was the best sky shots I could work up =/ Of course if I were a photographer I maybe could have figured out some technical or artsy angle...


Read on if you are a regular blogland friend and want to hear my updates...


But the great thing about a rainy week at the beach is all that real rest and relaxation you are forced to take =] It was such a great time for my husband especially. We joined some friends at the beach and the guys did a lot of hanging out together.

First there were the morning walks, followed by long stints in the hot tub. That took them all the way till noon. Then we had lunch, maybe a nap following. Girls went shopping in the afternoon, boys...Shooting and Killing movies...allllllllllllllllllllll afternooooooooooon. Now if and when the rain stopped, there was heavy activity on the beach ;]



Some of you more astute blogger friends...may have figured out the guy in the maroon sweat shirt is no other than the Strider guy himself...there he is reading that book he has been blogging about :0)


We did have a really good time, thanks to our friends for letting us tag along. My hubby on the right really did decompress and that was absolutely worth every second of our trip...and of course reconnecting with some really great friends!

If it rained four straight days here, I would surely go out once it stopped! Great sunset pictures. At first I thought the kite was a bird! =)

My SWF pictures are posted in these blogs:
Jenn Was Here and Shutter Happy Moments. Hope you can hop by if you have the time. Happy weekends to you!

Those are great shots. I love the beach no matter the weather and you certainly captured the stormy feeling. Love the rest of your blog. And that picture of your husband and friends is priceless. What an adorable grandbaby you have! Thanks for stopping by to visit me!

LOL! You tag line of "heavy beach activity" with all of us sitting was really funny! Lucky and I were having coffee this morning and she told me she got lonesome last night. When I asked her why, she said, "I miss my friends!" We did have a great time. Thanks again for coming along.....it really made the trip for us.

I think the photos are fine. They tell a story and that's always good. Plus, they reminded me I bought a kite a few months back and I haven't taken it out yet.
:-) My first trip to your blog and I instantly smiled at that beautiful baby! She's just too cute!! Thanks for the visit.

Hi sweet gardener friend!! Your pics took me back to those "young" goneby days at the beach under a cloudy sky.... memories, ah... what's life without yesterday's memories....

Have a lovely weekend, and keep us posted on your garden's progress.

Hugs

You complain about your photos? They're great and inspirational where else could you ask such a deep and meaningful question as: "is it a bird, is it a plane nooo, it's SUpaman!!!"

Glad you had a good relaxing time.

Lavinia said...

Oh I love these photos with their cool, soothing oyster tones and the pearly quality to the light.

I read about the beach holiday on Strider's website....I love a beach no matter the weather .....

Thank you!

MARIA said...

On the right site I see beautiful, sweet baby!

Rainy walk and relax is not bad.
I prefer rainy day than hot day.
In my country we have hot days now.
So I feel comfortable here with you and yours.
Thanks for relax, and God bless you!

What a way to spend time at the beach! At least you don't seem to be terribly daunted by it.

Catherine said...

Beautiful sky watch captures...very peaceful looking! Send some of your rain clouds my way please! :)
Enjoy your week, happy sky watching!

I'm glad you had a good time - they look a little cold. Little T doesn't look like she's having any trouble sleeping.
