Sounds of the sea

Scrunch scrunch scrunch
A shell!
Look at this one!
Let's dig
Sand in the fingernails
I'm going to build the BIGGEST sandcastle EVER!

Splish splash
Lots of rock pools
Look at the crab!
In there!

Up on Dad's shoulders
Now I can see ANTARCTICA!

Pretty pebbles for my collection

Fish and chips
One more dip

Feeling sleepy

I'm not tired really

Dad carries me back to the car

not tired...............


Warm blanket in back seat
Pebbles in my pocket

Not .............. tired..........................................

Kiama January 2014


  1. Sand in the swimmers can be such a bear to put up with too.

  2. Bonjour chère amie,
    Vos photos dégagent une belle plénitude... On ne peut qu'être contemplatif devant un tel spectacle.
    merci pour ce séduisant billet accompagné de jolis mots.
    Gros bisous

  3. gorgeous shots and I giggled at sand in my swimmers...

  4. William - especially that kind of gritty sand!

    Martinealison - Thank you. I must admit I did get a bit contemplative by the water when I was taking the photos.

    Lynn - yes sand in the swimmers was a bit part of my childhood. :)

  5. Such wonderful verse to accompany the photos. Very creative indeed!

  6. Ah...great trip to the beach :) I especially like the see Antarctica line, being a Northern Hemisphere person!

  7. Thanks Carol. ^_^

    Nothing beats a day at the beach Melissa. In Australia one must be 6 years old or less and perched on dads shoulders to see Antarctica :-D

  8. I very much enjoyed this. You bring back memories and make me remember the joys of childhood.

    Thank you for following my blog.


  9. Thank you, that's what I was hoping to do. And you're very welcome :-)

  10. Debs thank you so much for stopping by to visit! A holiday by the water sounds so good right now!

    Feature: Decorate Fearlessly

  11. Happy post! And love your photos. They're wonderful! :)

  12. Karena: A holiday by the water is always so calming.

    Mary: Thank you. I tried to combine memories of my own childhood and times at the beach with my husband and daughter :)

  13. You've captured the spirit of time spent at the sea splendidly here. As much as I do dearly love living in a town that's sandwiched by two big lakes (with plenty more to be in the surrounding area), sometimes this Vancouver born gal does still yearn for the sea. It's been many years since I was last at the oceans, but have plans in the works to remedy that later this year (fingers crossed).

    Big hugs & joyful Easter weekend wishes,
    ♥ Jessica


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I do appreciate each and every one and will do my best to reply. I do apologise for the comment moderation I've been forced to put into place thanks to Mr Dark's spamming. It was not so much the spamming that bothered me - it was his appalling grammar.
