Got a good reason For taking the easy way out


...and the wind blew a gale!!!

Shortly after the calm sea on our cruise the entire trip, after being home about a week, I decided to go walking along the Gulf Shore at Packery Channel. The wind was fierce, the sea rough...

[these are not black and white photos...just a gray day]









...in a small alcove, out of the wind a crab was feeding!

  4. How did you keep from getting blown away while you were out there taking pictures? I imagine that bird in the second photo down on the left is flapping his wings double time.

  7. Awesome shots of the angry sea. Kind of matches the angry look on that crab with huge claws! Wouldn't want to bump into him in a dark alley. :)

  8. I feel the strength of the wind whipping the sea and the spray filled with sand is making my legs sting. Wonderful and exhilarating feeling!

  10. The sea is WILD!!! Your photos really show all the excitement of the waves. You can spot absolutely anything!! The crab looks so well hidden. He is maybe a Blue Crab?
