Nature

I love all the nature here at the beach.  Everyday this week Ive walked out to the north beach, dragging my family, to try and get pictures of the dolphins.  The first day , my camera battery was dead.  And since then, Ive seen no dolphins in the deep channel.
 Here, taken yesterday,  is my very nice husband humoring me.

 But today was my lucky day.  We saw lots of dolphins all day , especially when eating lunch at the beach restaurant.  So we went up this after noon as low tide approached and there they where. WhooHoo.  I dragged my sister, my niece and my daughter there too.  I really wanted them to see the dolphins in action.  I think they thought is was cool at first but then just boring.
 It took two hours but I finally got the shot I wanted. I think I was driving my sister crazy. LOL

 This is called Strand fishing. The dolphins herd the fish onto shore and  then eat them. Then they slide back into the  water.




How great where those??  LOL  I have lots more but none as great.

And why do the golfers insist on looking for their balls in the water hazards?  Here are two good reasons to just loose your $5.00 ball and get a new one.




And here is what Stephanie was doing while I was trying to get the dolphin shots.

 Its in Japanese and says Pray for Japan. (I think).

And of course , here is another great shot of Miley. LOL

AMAZING! I'm with you, I could sit for hours and watch animals and never get bored. Sometimes, especially when I see pictures like that, I really wish we lived close to a beach :) Thanks for sharing!!

The dolphin photos are incredible!!! And I agree with you, I'd just buy a new golf ball! Those guys can have whatever falls in the water.

OMG...those are stunning photos of the dolphins. I'd have waited all day with you to see those! I'm sure I'll never see anything like that in person, so I'm really glad you shared them with us. Amazing. Just amazing.

SO cool, I love you dolphin shots. And I'd say those alligators are a good reason to stay off the golf course altogether.

Kathy said...

W O W!!!! Those are the most amazing pictures, I would have given anything to be there for something like the dolpins, that is so neat. I love the picture of the two reasons to accept losing your golf balls, hehehehehe. What a fantastic day!

Beautiful photos!! I can't imagine actually seeing real wild dolphins and gators. Wow.

Sophie said...

Wowee, those are some beautiful photos! Your beach looks like a fab place (especially with the dolphins), and I bet pretty Miley would agree!

The pics of the dolphins were fantastic, so worth the wait. I wouldn't want to be anywhere near the gators. The cranes (?) were gorgeous. I love nature! Great pic of Miley on the beach. :)
