Sunny Days

So, I decided to enjoy the day outdoors today. What I plan to do is to go outside for walks on the beach and take my camera along with me.
I just want to soak up the sun as much as possible and enjoy the chilly sea breeze running through my hair.
Summer will be just around the corner once more. Again!

I thought I'd post something to truly bend the mind at all kinds of angles. A good and refreshing diversion after a hectic week at work.
I really need to step away from the computer and find some inspiration today.
What are you up to this weekend, dear friends?

Hope you have a wonderful one, my darlings! xx

Amiga,

A primeira foto é um show à parte... eu a chamo de penas ao vento... simplemente maravilhosa.
O conjunto de fotos é realmente refrescante... o mar... sempre o mar.

Beijinhos.

I love this post! Your first photo especially caught my imagination, as I am certainly missing my swimming pool in South Africa.

Summer is definitely on the way!

Sandra said...

I love all beaches first, then trees and wooded areas. what a wonderful way to spend a day. I feel like I was with you and can almost smell the clean air and sunshine

texwisgirl said...

i could almost hear the lap of the waves with your photos. just beautiful 'azures'. :)

I think you found some great inspiration when you took these pictures. The color of the water is gorgeous and it is so clear in your second photo. but I really like the three beach photos at the bottom of your post. They are all fantastic.

WOW!!

Have a great weekend!

Nevine said...

I'll be leaving in a couple of hours to go outside and enjoy the great outdoors myself! These are days of perfect weather, and very soon it will be too hot. But, too hot means... The beach! I can't wait for that... but that's later in summer, for me.

Your photos are so very refreshing, my dear sweet friend! And they make me look forward to a beautiful day outside and a lovely summer season.

I hope your weekend is just gorgeous! Have a good one!

Big hugs,
Nevine

Lovely seascape Betty.

KrippledWarrior said...

Thank you for the great pics, Betty. I grew up near the coast of North Carolina, and 22 years of Naval Service kept me in touch with the sea. I do miss it greatly sometimes. And that Jay-bird in photo #1 is having a bad hair day, huh? =)

Kelly said...

I'll admit I'm not a beach person, but your photos are gorgeous, Betty!! The varying shades of blue in the sea and sky are spectacular!

Family visiting this weekend which should be nice. Hope your weekend goes well, too!

Leovi said...

Please have a good Sunday you all.

Those blues and greens of the water look so serene.
It's raining over here (in CA) now.
Glad you enjoyed the sun, sand and sea!

I'm so jealous! I'd give anything to live by the ocean and go to the beach whenever I felt like it.

Someday....
