A Walk on the Beach

This was my walking buddy this morning. With memorial Day weekend right around the corner I decided I had better get a few walks in before the tourists show up. You won't be able to stir them with a stick by Friday.
I had the beach all to myself except for a lone shore fisherman. I walked from the middle of the island to the channel. Banks Channel connects the Atlantic ocean to the Intercoastal Waterway.
Across the channel is another small uninhabited island that the surfers, boaters and birds use. You can see lots of sharks there. The water is warm and the boaters tend to throw there bait and left over food out there.
Nice breeze, sunny and moving fluffy clouds. Perfect morning.

Beautiful blog - I've added you to my regular reading list. I live at Coogee beach in Sydney Australia and I love your photos. We just have stinging blue bottles on our beach, not as benign as your cannonball jelly fish.

Hi Elizabeth. I just found your blog from a link on Sandee's (Sanity) blog. I'm in NC too and live about 70 miles east of Wilmington. DH works down near Southport.

Your blog is beautiful---recipes, gorgeous pictures and awesome art! I'll definitely be visiting often.

Found your blog through my ATC yahoo group....love it! How fortunate you are....I'm so jealous of you're living so close to the ocean and being able to walk there everyday. We just got back from Destin on vacation...see my blog www.mustangsally-beth.blogspot.com You can see! Also, my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter live in Matthews NC. It's beautiful there. Beth

Hello Elizabeth. Your photo looks so inviting--I want to jump into the water! It's so hot here already--high 90s, heat index 104!! Someday I'm going to live near water and mountains. Thanks for your cooling photo.
