Tuesday at the beach

I knew it was high tide.  But I've gotten some great beach writings done even when it was high tide.  So I gathered everything up and went to the beach. I could hear the surf when I got out of the car, but again this did not deter me.

Came over the walkway & saw this.
Umm, where is the beach?  There should be about 20 to 30 feet more sand there.

I look down the beach.
Ok, maybe I can walk down that way & find a place to write. 
Just so you know what you're looking at, the water is up to the bottom of the dunes.

I walk along the bottom of the dunes.  Every 4th or 5th wave reaches the bottom of the dunes.
And even if I could write something quickly, this is what it looks like at the bottom of the dunes

Who wants THAT in their picture???  I don't!

So I made it as far down as the next set of stairs (see 2nd picture) and decide to go home.  

The ocean got to me before I could reach the stairs and I was soaked up to my thighs!

High tide was at 8:38 today and these pictures were taken about 9am. Over the next few days the tide will be later so hopefully when I go back tomorrow, it will be much better!  We'll see!  


  1. I'll let you know when I can feel my feet again. Thankfully I had taken off my shoes & was wearing capris.

  2. Sorry you weren't able to snap the photogs you were hopin' for, but your pics are still awesome. How nice must it be to be so close to the sea, very. Hope the week pans out better for you, your pics, and the kiddo. All The Best!
