By the Sea, By the Sea

Weeks seem to be flying by quickly this summer.
Autumn is only 35 days away.
It was hot and humid for a bit this summer but over all not bad at all and now it is pretty cool for this time of year.
I took these photo on Thursday afternoon around 7:00 PM which is tonight as I write this.
It was a lovely day with a nice, cool,  salty breeze blowing.      I kept having to clean the camera lens.
It was slightly hazy out over the bay and ocean so I couldn't see the lighthouse today.
Once again I am joining with Debbie's Friday Foto Friends, and to Skywatch Friday,  ,Friday Photo Journal
I took these with my Canon A560 digital camera in my neighborhood and a nearby neighborhood.

I hope you enjoy looking at these photos.

In the distance you can see the barrier island and Sea Side NJ. The ocean is on that side.  Sea Side is not like the TV show "Jersey Shore" which was horrible.

The strip of land in the distance is the Barrier Island . It is narrow and the ocean is on the other side of it.

sitting on the dock watching the tide roll in...

Remember that song by Otis Redding?
 "I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time…"

The neighborhood has this sign up. Not sure why but,there it is!. Geese in the background.

The house behind me was playing lovely Broadway tunes. Very nice while I was walking around taking photos.

Having all your ducks in a row, even if they are geese.

Love this place

Here are some videos I took as well. I am a terrible videographer but I hope to get better as I learn.


  1. Oh how relaxing, smiles. Hope you have a beautiful weekend, friend.

  2. The new header is sooo pretty !
    Your photos and videos bring me to a very happy place...
    Thank You !!

  3. Your photos are always lovely. Would you recommend that camera for a beginner? I take all my pics on an iPhone.

    1. Thank you so much. I don't even know if they make the 560 anymore but it was a great little camera. I've had it for a very long time now. It cost about $300 and something but I had a gift certificate to help. I know that the Canon Rebel series is very nice.
      Canons are easy to use and the Rebel series has accessories like lens etc.
      The video on my Canon A560 is not the greatest though as you can see from the quality of these videos.

  4. It's so beautiful where you live. You are blessed to live so close to the water. Have a great weekend!!

  5. Your photos of the water are like a breath of fresh air.

  6. That was so lovely! I enjoyed the background music on the videos! Was that someone actually playing the piano in a house near you? It was perfect! Your sunset was stunning last night also! It must have been many of us have posted pictures of it, from all over the country! That is really wonderful..when God paints His masterpieces for all of us to enjoy at the same time!! I love that!!!

  7. What beautiful fotos and I so enjoyed the videos. know how much I LOVE your header! You are so talented!

  8. Yes, I see what you mean, those Canadians do get around :)
