Saturday on the Bay!



I really needed to get out and do things today, no matter how I feel.
It was a beautiful day, not too hot and nice breeze. So, we went to the cove.
It was hotter in the sun than I realized and it did tire me out quick, so instead of paddling in the coves, we went straight to the breakers. The breezes are so much nicer on the open waters and the views were spectacular today. It was so nice to get out and breath in the salt air, was so glad I went.

I do long to go out on the bay, splashing into the waves with my kayak, there is nothing like it. I will just have to a launch in the bay, then I can enjoy a paddle without having to paddle too far.



It was low tide today and lots of shells on the beach. I saw this conch in the water and pulled it out to look at it, then realized it was already occupied, lol. I thank you all for your wonderful comments and good wishes for a quick recovery. I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy the goodness and beauty that God has given us to enjoy.

Hi Debbie, Glad to hear you are starting to feel better. That Lyme disease is such a tough thing to deal with. Nothing like a day on the water to lift your spirits.

Being land locked I do miss the ocean air and it is a requirement to stand on the beach at least once a year! Growing up on the ocean my favorite times are a 30 knot wind blowing in my face!

That looks like a lovely way to spend a Saturday, Debbie!

Your pics look wonderful! I'm guessing you're in the NE. We're on the beach in Wilmington NC so I hear where you're coming from! Life is good on the beach...and everywhere.
