More Beach Beauty!

Sunrise at the Beach
On a cold winter day,  I'm going to share more photos from our trip to Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina on Dec. 3-6, 2013.  Above is another sunrise photo.   I loved seeing all of the sunbeams.


Lots of FOG on the beach
One morning --it was very very foggy --but we still enjoyed our walks on the beach.



George on the Beach on a Foggy morning



One more 'foggy' photo --showing our inn (Islander Inn)



Betsy at the 'big house'
If you have followed my blog for several years,  you will remember me showing this huge home --when they first started building it.  It's all completed now,  so do you want to visit me here sometime?????  HA HA ---I could only qualify to be a housekeeper here!!!


An Angry Ocean one Day



Beautiful sky at sunset on 12/5



George at the Beach --on a sunny day (quite different from the foggy day)



The Fishing Pier at Ocean Isle Beach
We always take a ton of pictures of the Fishing Pier when we go to the beach.  I like this one because of the reflections --and also that gorgeous sky!!!!  Clouds at the beach are so interesting.


Another picture of the Girl who LOVES the Beach



One of my favorite Sunset Photos!  (Look at the colors even along the shore. Wow!)  12/3



Two People who Love being at the Beach
I posted this photo before ---but wanted to end with it today ---just to show you how much we truly do love the beach and each other... We'll be back there hopefully in May!

I'll be taking Wednesday and Friday off from blogging to enjoy VALENTINE's DAY with the Love of my Life... Hope you have a great week--and a Happy Valentine's Day to ALL... Show LOVE wherever you go!  I will be back on Monday,  February 17.

Hugs,

Gorgeous photos, Betsy! This looked like a wonderful trip. I haven't been to a beach in over a year, but we are going to the Outer Banks in NC this summer! I'm excited about that!

Linda@arichtapestry said...

It's always good when you can spend a few days away. You can relax and enjoy the different weather conditions, beautiful sun, sand and sky and each other's company. Another break at one of your favourite places in May sounds lovely. Have a wonderful Valentine's weekend.

Ann said...

beautiful beach shots. That is some thick fog you had there. I'll be down to spend some times with you in that great big house. How does next week sound?.....lol

Valerie said...

Beautiful photos. I especially like the pier with the reflection! Reminds me of our time living in Virginia Beach.

I love the beach, too! Such nice pictures. And the only way I would want to live in that house would be if I HAD a housekeeper!! Ha! HA! Enjoy your Valentine! :-)

linda m said...

I love your beach pictures and love the beach. I wish I lived near the ocean so I could visit it once in a while. It is so peaceful and relaxing just sitting on the beach. Hope your Valentine's Day is the best ever.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

I do love your favorite sunset photo, Betsy; but I think my favorites in this set are the "angry ocean" and the one right after it of the pastel sunset colors and the two people walking along the beach. Another great set of images.

Sandra said...

I like that angry ocean shot. we don't see waves in the gulf like that. a beach is always beautiful.

Rose said...

Beautiful views, Betsy. I hate to think what the taxes and cooling bill would be on that house!

Have a Happy Valentines day with your sweetie!

Donna said...

Happy Valentine's Day!

Tabor said...

You love everything...waterfalls, beaches, travel and yard roses. No problem finding something to keep you happy!

Shug said...

I love how you always find the "BEST" in everything you do...I'm pretty sure that you and George added much sunshine to the beaches on this trip...
Can't wait to hear what the two of you do for Valentines.
Have a great day....and stay warm

What gorgeous moments on the beach!

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

the beach is so pretty! You have some great photos of it, sunset, fog, I join you cleaning that big house:) Enjoy Valentines

Nellie said...

This winter is a good time to think about times at the beach! We have had much colder temperatures here than in the past few years, and we've had more "teasings" about possible snowfall. Enjoy your time away! Hugs, Nellie

David said...

Betsy, I especially like the foggy beach photos! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Small City Scenes said...

Such beautiful shots. I love the sky and sun shot with the couple on the beach. and the one with the long pier. but I do like them all.

Sandra said...

Hi Betsy!
Beautiful beach pics! I can definitely see how much you love it there, the pier is gorgeous too and the foggy pics, I do like how a beach can change with the weather! Happy Valentines Day to you and George, have a wonderful one! x x x

Grandma Bonnie said...

How truly blessed you are to have a wonderful and loving husband. I can see why you like the beach so much with such beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Happy Valentines day!

Dr. Kathy McCoy said...

There's something so mysterious and wonderful about a foggy beach in winter. I love your pictures! You always give us a sense of truly being there with you!

Kay said...

Absolutely stunning photos, Betsy. I love fog!

Ercotravels said...

Beach life, one of the exotic experience!! One have a dream to get the experience of beach life...
Fantastic photos, Nice post..

Beatriz said...

I had never imagined a beach as well, in the harsh winter, with snow around and much fog! We don't have a weather like this here in Brazil.The beach is always windy and warmth with almost 40┬║degrees Celcius!!!
Much love and peace to you!

A big, big hug!

These are gorgeous photos and you and George always look great. Enjoy your week and Happy Valentine's Day to you both.

Lynda said...

I love the many moods of nature since it shows the variety of God. The angry ocean is a pretty picture and it reminds us of HIS power. The two sunset pics are among my favorites and definitely the one of you two!!! Any day a person can be at the beach is a good day - - - some better than others but all good.

Cheqna said...

Hi Betsy,

Beautiful collections of photos..and I especially love the sunset, the sunrise and reflection.

That big house? Can I visit you there even if you are the housekeeper? ;-D ...hehe..

Enjoy your break and have a great celebration with George.

:-)

Busy Bee Suz said...

I love that you and George have your special place to visit each year. Such a great spot to enjoy the peach.
I especially love the photo of the two lovebirds.
XOXO

Lovely photos Betsy!

Pat Tillett said...

A beautiful place and great photos of it! Yeah, maybe I could live in that house if I was the limo driver...

By seeing the photos it seems that you had a wonderful time. All the photos are beautiful.

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

enjoy your time away. i love the fog & that sunshine shot on the beach is amazing!! i bet you get a good tip when you clean that house. i have been a housekeeper in the past & it was hard work but awesome tips!! happy <3 day! ( :

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I have never seen it that foggy there. Interesting. Happy valentines day!

Dee said...

Dear Betsy, lovely photographs as usual, but I'm wondering about this storm in the South. Last evening on the national NBC news, the meteorologist said that the snow/ice storm had the potential to be "catastrophic." I'm wondering if you are experiencing that now. Please take care. Peace.

Beth said...

Gorgeous photos, Betsy. I am always uplifted by the love and happiness shining in yours and George's eyes and smiles. You show that good marriages are possible and many need to know that. You're fortunate that you both love the travel and to the same places. Mike is not much of a traveler and definitely to the beach.
My favorite pics are the angry ocean, the fishing pier, and the joyful one of you and George together.:>)

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I will take the beach beauty ANY day of the week. But most of all, here on your post, I enjoy the smiles!!!

Jeevan said...

Awesome photos from sunny, as well foggy existence! I am sure you enjoyed both the seasons there... Hope u have lovely time with George along celebrating Valentine’s Day :)

Chris Rohrer said...

I'm glad you guys get out to all the various locations. Hope you stay warm and don't have too much snow. Be safe on the roads! Happy Valentine's Day! Chris

Retired English Teacher said...

I could use some beach time about now!

Chatty Crone said...

Okay did you get a hair cut - looks nice.

Yes you and George do like the beach - it looked a little cold - but love keeps you warm!!!

I enjoyed the photos!

We are melting here in GA - how about you?

Andrea said...

It's always nice to see your photos during your travels, but i always remember the sweet pictures of the two of you with similar shirts and totally radiating with happiness, contentment, peace, love! A wonderful life! Nothing more to ask, you're so blessed! Happy Valentine's Day.

Marie said...

Fabulous shots! I know you had a great time there. I love seeing the two of you...happy and sharing life!

Twilight Man said...

I have been dreaming of such vacations like yours to be able to relax with a book and enjoy the ocean's breeze with a panoramic view!

Well, USA is too faraway and I just found the closest wide beach fronts are available in Australia! In Malaysia, we have short sandy beaches and most of the waters are polluted. Ewww!
