thanks.. :)

k9,
yep .. on one of nc's most southern, family oriented .. no hotel highrises .. beaches ..
it's one of the beaches that faces south instead of east ..

dianne said...

Beautiful photo Foamie!

I can just about smell the sea air, feel the sand beneath my feet and hear the waves as they crash upon the shore! :)

HLiza said...

The last time I was at the beach..I didn't really walk and walk..I just sit and click click..and handling the little feet unfamiliar with sands.. The thought of walking haunts me now..and the endless beauty my feet will encounter..

I guess it is the Atlantic ocean.


I always use earplugs in concerts. It is not so fun, but I don't want to lose more of my hearing.
Bruce's swedish was not so bad, but only four words: Göteborg, hur mår ni?

Gothenburg, how are you?

Pink said...

Allan said...

Hi, I'm new here and just wanted to say that is a wonderful picture...and thank you for the visit!

Aunty Belle said...

Ah...did'ja come back too soon? Looks ter me like ya'll oughta hang out thar' fer a spell.

Foamy, that is really a fine shot--evocative...now I wanna read that book ya'll mentioned.

boneman said...

so are haikus new?
not too many use that form.
Or is it secret?

X. Dell said...

I don't know if it's peace, but it's certainly tranquility.

foam said...

allan,
it was my pleasure visiting your site ..
:)

foam said...

belle,
well, i'm not familiar with the book, but i reckon since prism read it, it must be a good read.
nah, on my own i would have stayed longer..
but too many cousins, in-laws .. it was a good time but also time to part ways again.

boneman,
haiku is an ancient japanese form of poetry. there's all kinds of sites on it.

x.dell..
and sometimes it wasn't even tranquil ..

mean dovey cooledge said...

beaches suck! have you seen the size of sand fleas?

**¤ ¤** said...

oh look! ..
a chicken ..
i love bbq chicken ..\
goes good with beer..
come heeeeeere, chick, chickie d chick ...

Ruela said...

bbq???


YES ;)






Cool pic foam.

Eric R Ström said...

Jag mår bra.

You can say du to me.

Hur mår du?

Wie geht es?

;)

benjibopper said...

I love a good haiku, and this one goes so well with the photo.

mean dovey cooledge said...

im not worried about your barbeque.
i have salmonella.

foam said...

ruela..
the chick has salmonella .. we will have to exterminate it instead ..

eric ,
Hur mår du? :)

thanks, benji .. the haiku was inspired my the photo ..

dovey ..
i reckon extermination is called for then ..
don't worry ..
it will be quick and painless..

boneman said...

no, I think the hen is slightly confused.
She thinks you're Ella and sahe has a salmon for the bbq crowd.

boneman said...

shoot, I lost my concentration coming up with the joke.
And, worse yet...I didn't hear anyone laughing, either.

Thjat there are haiku sites all over is about right.
On my sidebar is a site called SPARROW and they have a contest every week.
On Wednesdays.
I'm running neck and neck with fourth place last time I looked.
(oooo fourth place....)

Your's was pretty cool. Thought maybe you should give it a shot next week.

(did I mention it was on Wednesdays?)

boneman said...

HA!
hahahahahahahahaha
(laughing seems to be contagious)
hahahahahahahaha
Which reminds me, it IS contagious.
Prove it for yourself next time you're in a crowded building. Start laughing uncontrollably and watch how many join in on the fun.

'Course, you want to avoid doing this in hospitals, though, as the guys from the seventh floor will come down and fit you with a new jacket.

/t. said...

foam,

i like to
think of it as
a hearty & manly laugh :)

(and you do do it justice!)

¤ ¤ ¤

/t.

foam said...

boneman ,,
oh, so that's why these big burly guys come with the white jacket that ties in the back when i laugh in hospitals ..

especially since my laugh sounds
not quite male and hearty like ;

/t.'s laugh ..

but more like the wicked witch of the west .. :)

Cynthia said...

I can just hear the waves and feel
their delicious moist spray, the scent
of the water enveloping me, yes,
so peaceful, beautiful photo.

foam said...

cynthia,
hello again .. :) i still can hear the waves. it's a sound that lingers for a long time.

Indigo said...

indigo incarnates

thanks for the blog visit today. I am emotionally doing better today. the physical body is giving me trouble. I've been dizzy most of the day. It's probably psychosomatic and thus will pass. Still, it's a drag.

But things are getting better :)
