Mosaic Monday: At the Beach





"Life is better at the beach" -- it's true.  There are wide open spaces.  The air is crisp and clear.  The sound of the surf is a peaceful background as the wind caresses your face.  And it's even better when it's empty of other people.  ;)

Just a few of my shots from the beach at Carlsbad, CA, taken in February.

  9. Dear Mary
    I love those birds and the wide empty landscape of the beach and the sky - gorgeous! If I was a poet it would inspire me to put pen to paper!

  17. Beautifully invigorating images of the beach, indeed, Mary! I, myself, am away from our beachy loveliness right now, having just arrived in Toronto to visit my daughter and family for a few months! Hope spring will soon be in the air, as winter does not seem to be budging!

    Thanks for hosting and have a lovely week!

  18. Oh it so is! I always remember the time when I was vacationing at my late aunt's cabin 900 km away from my ocean front city and 200 km away from the ocean altogether, and we decided to drive to the coast. Oh my, the change I felt...the feeling of "home" at the sea...indescribable. You had to be there...in my head...lol. Much love to you Mary and I hope your week next week is fantastic and happy. :)
