Sun's Rays on the Ocean


On May 5, after getting back to our room from having dinner at the Boundary House, we sat on the balcony and watched the sun's rays hit the ocean --as it began to set in the west. Today I'll show you some of what we saw that evening ---and the next morning. The picture above is looking down the beach to the right. Isn't everything just gorgeous this time of evening? More pictures are below! You can thank George for taking ALL of these gorgeous pictures.





One of the Casino Boats is heading out to sea for their Sunset Cruise. They have to get 3 miles out in order for people to gamble.




The water looks so blue with the sun shining on it. This is looking straight ahead from our room. (If you have missed any of our other Ocean Isle Beach trip pictures recently, you can look on my sidebar and find the label which says OCEAN ISLE 2010.)




I love the way the sun is reflecting off of the fishing pier in this picture. This is to the left of our balcony.




Then, we got to see those gorgeous pink clouds in the distance --over the water. Awesome, don't you think?




AND THEN------------------ this is early the next morning when we woke up. What did we see????? FOG..... Isn't life interesting staying on the beach? One can see all kinds of things (sunshine, rain, fog, rainbows, clouds, etc.).... LOVE IT!!!!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Hugs,

All are beautiful Betsy! I can't pick a favorite between the first and last pictures. :)

amelia said...

Your pics are lovely! That's probably the only thing I miss being away from England is the ocean.
I would love to be walking on that lovely beach in your pictures, right about now!!
How come the beach is so empty?

Ginny said...

I've never seen fog on a beach. But my favorite picture here is the edge of the sand that's sun dappled, with the sunny peir. Two spectacular thing in one picture.

I love beaches, the sea, clouds and the sky. You have all those in this post.

Bird Girl said...

Everywhere you look and anytime of day or night is pretty as a picture! George did a great job showing us the different weather you enjoyed at the beach!

Denise said...

I love looking at the ocean at that time of the day. These are lovely photos Betsy.

Susie said...

Life is interesting on the beach. I love how light affects the whole scene.

Sunny said...

What lovely views you had!
I love living in the mountains but I sure do miss the ocean having lived near it for so many years.

The ocean never ceases to amaze me with it's moods and beauty.

Karin said...

Simply breathtaking! Have to go to George's blog and thank him for the pics! Have a great week!

Busy Bee Suz said...

George did a wonderful job capturing all the different moods of the beach.
Looks like a great view anytime of day.

Arkansas Patti said...

You are really making me homesick for Florida. What amazes me is how the beaches are so empty. You had them totally to yourselves. How wonderful.
I don't remember seeing fog on the beach. Just so peaceful.

Dorothy said...

How wonderful that you got to have a vacation at the beach! I love the ever-changing moods of the ocean. I could be entertained by just watching from a balcony!

Roses and Lilacs said...

It has suddenly gotten so hot here. That beach looks wonderful. Wish I could spend even just a couple hours there.

I always enjoy visiting here as I get to see your beautiful photos and leave feeling like I was right there beside you when you were snapping them.

Mary said...

I could stare at the ocean for hours....especially while sitting wtih my feet in the water :-)

After living in south Florida for years and then moving to Tn., I never looked back. Never missed it.

It is a very different lifestyle down there. J and I did most of our dating days going to the beach! What can be better than FREE! Swimming, talking, laying in the hot sun, in silence! The beach always reminds me of the early days of our relationship :)

Yet, I never missed the beach after moving here. Until recently.

Your beach pics confirmed it. We need a trip to the beach!!! And a babysitter for 5 horses, 3 dogs, and a herd of cats!

Thanks for another glimpse into your life, Betsy. And tell George,
great job on those wonderful pictures :)

I love the pink clouds! Like cotton candy floating along up there. Who wouldn't have delicious dreams after that sweet sunset?

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Blessings,Ruth

Jo said...

What stunning photos, Betsy;) I love the reflection of the pier the most but they are ALL beautiful. And to think that 3 miles out you may gamble LOL. Thanks for sharing this beauty. Blessings and Hugs. Jo

Good evening!
Beautiful photos!
Beautiful place!

Dar said...

Next trip to the ocean, I think I could fit in your largest suitcase...well maybe, duffle bag. Love the pink clouds and the pier and all that white sand.

Beautiful views of the beach! The fishing pier is my favorite, but George captured nature at its best in all of them.

Oh, Betsy, those are all wonderful views...cannot believe how blue the ocean was. Those last two shots are fabulous...

imac said...

Such a nice place to stay for a while.

Cheryl said...

I love the ocean at sunset! George has captured the beauty of sunset. I also think early morning is pretty too, even if its foggy. And yes, you two take the best trips!

nanny said...

George made some wonderful pictures....my heart is heavy thinking about the beaches of Gulf Coast....Hoping and praying BP gets their act together and saves this perfect area of the south!

Janie said...

Beautiful beach scenes, both sun and fog. I love watching the ocean's moods, just as I love watching the sky change over the mountains.

Daisy said...

Wow, that water looks so blue! Very pretty pictures, Betsy. Sounds like you had a great time. :)

Annesphamily said...

OK...you've inspired me now! I'm gonna get up early and go to the beach for a sunrise in the morning! Thankyou!

marmee said...

beach trips are some of my favourite times. i love being on the sandy shores and getting the smell of salt all over me.
wonderful photos.
happy may.

Small City Scenes said...

Excellent pictures, Betsy. The blues of the water are gorgeous. Our ocean beaches have fog lots of times. Kinda mysterious. MB

Betty said...

Your pictures are wonderful. I love the one with the pier.
Love Hugs and Good Thoughts ♥♥

Pam said...

Fantastic photos of the sand dunes beneath your balcony, Betsy. My favorite is the foggy scene you woke up to, it looks so mysterious.

SquirrelQueen said...

George's photos are beautiful. One of the things I love so much about the ocean is that it is always changing. The sun can be shining brightly and an hour later it's so foggy you can't see two in front of you. Your post is really making me miss the ocean.

Hi! Actually, I'm just new in browsing your blogs. Just saw it's link from my friend's blog site. I could see your positiveness and I love it. I wish I could write one like yours but I have to admit I don't have the talent. So I would just stick on reading your posts. Thanks for the beautiful posts!!!
