W is for Water
W is for Water
Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink! That’s what it’s like when you go to the ocean unless you like salt water! Since we live near the ocean, I had to write about W is for Water for the A to Z Challenge.
We have lived in the North Myrtle Beach area of South Carolina since 1994 and the only time we see the ocean is when we are measuring a condo for window treatments for one of our clients. Back when our girls were young in the 70’s, we would drive down from upstate New York and plant ourselves on the beach the entire vacation. That was before hubby got stung by a Portuguese man of war, which causes severe pain to humans, leaving whip-like, red welts on the skin that normally last two or three days after the initial sting, We have not been in the ocean since then except a few times with the grandchildren in knee deep only.
It’s very soothing to watch the waves, sometimes they are soft and almost like slow motion while other times they swell up quite large. Usually the large waves come in when a storm is near. We were installing draperies when I shot this photograph from the balcony of the condo.
These are two of my favorite shots with the sea gulls in the ocean water. I love how I was able to capture the sea gull, his reflection and shadow in the top photo.
The water also makes a great backdrop for taking portraits. This is our oldest grandson with his beautiful girl friend and with the ocean water in the background, it doesn’t need any editing.
Another beautiful water place is the streams and rivers that run through the Great Smoky National Forest. This is a total opposite of the ocean but it is still very soothing to sit on the bank and listen to the water flow over the rocks.
What is your favorite water spot, the ocean, a lake or stream? I’ll end my W is for Water with a video I took of water of the stream bubbling over the rocks. Such a beautiful site to sit and listen to the relaxing sound.
I hope you enjoyed W is for Water for my A to Z Challenge. What was your W word if you are doing the challenge? Tag me so I can ready yours!
This is my V is for Vegetables which we wouldn’t have if it wasn’t for watering the plants!
