Somewhere Beyond the Sea...

When I share my beach walks, I'm usually aiming my camera lens to the sea [or focusing on birds walking the shore or flying high above me]. Today, I thought I'd be a bit different, and show y'all what is behind me...behind the beach and the Gulf. After walking on the sand, dodging the seasonal influx of seaweed, I walked along the jetty clear out to sea, to the very end, then I climbed the sand dunes this time; for a work out.  By the way, if you notice the cross erected on one of the dunes, I must tell you this is a scene that can be a frequent sighting.  People put up memorials for those lost at sea from unfortunate mishaps ...drowning or perhaps totally lost from being caught in those dangerous rip currents.


The dunes...



...and the sea:

    1. When there is some 'wave action', I enjoy it so much more than calm seas.

  4. I can smell the sea and am a bit homesick. You lost me at climbing the dunes. Impressive.

    1. I admit, I pay more attention to the water...and the dunes are so much a part of the surroundings.

  11. I think the closest I can get is to the ocean is Lake Michigan where there are actually some cool dunes but if it rains anymore maybe a body of water will move to my doorstep. Wonderful photos, I feel as if I'm there. So cool you see and photograph falcons.
