The Eye of a Storm .

Yesterday we went to the jetty for a walk. The sun shone at the beginning of our walk but as the walk progressed, the sky began to change before our very eyes. We were walking into the eye of a storm.

Blue skies , with heavy clouds and mountains as a backdrop still astound us.

Those sprinklings are birds quickly filling their bellies with their favorite crustaceans before the storm arrives.

Can you see the solitary heron?

She was also engaged in filling her belly with tasty fare.

There is always time to make time for a meet and greet before a storm descends.

This is Roxy and she and Duffy are perfect playmates.

Duffy , " These winds are getting stronger but onward I march ! "

The clouds are doubling up. And beauty surrounds us.

Issa , " I'm not afraid of a few clouds ! "

Nature , in a state of unrest . Still breathtaking .

The eye of the storm has closed in upon us.

Duffy , " I think we should head back . "

Issa , " It 's time . I hear thunder . "

Have a tropical Thursday.
See you tomorrow!

  1. What lovely pictures of the sea and the beautiful blue sky. What a shame the thunder storm came along and curtailed your walk.
    luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. Good thing Issa and Duffy know when it is time to leave because of an on-coming storm. Hope LP and Daddyman are hanging on to you tight! AW does not enjoy a 'good' storm...I must have had a 'sheltered' childhood. Ha ha.

  3. It is almost hurricane season where I live (in south Florida), so big storms are skerry!


We always love to hear from you!
