Seabird, Seadog

Chasing beach sunsets, I risk disappointment. The cloud cover might not be ideal; the tide might be too far in or too far out.

Chasing beach sunrises, I risk all this at an unreasonably early hour, to boot.

Sometimes it works better just to go to the beach and take what I find.

    On St. Kitts, once, long ago, we went for a walk along the beach and encountered a dog who dug for crabs. At least, I assume they were crabs. He found a mound of sand, and dug frantically until he was in the more-or-less horizontal hole past his shoulders. When he came out, he was crunching something. Looked quite like this dog. Did he eat crabs too?

      Jim – What a great memory. I did not see this dog eating crabs; I did see him retrieving a ball and leaping into crashing waves with exuberance.

    I like “wildlife” photos more than sunsets/sunrises any day

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Alison – I’m with you – many sunsets/sunrises are pretty but otherwise boring. But I do want to see what Ottawa offers me by way of these shots with, say, the Parliament Buildings. The trick will be finding a good place to stand.

    nice finds

      Jim R – Thanks, Jim. I tried to get video of this hound but was using my new camera and failed. He was really a delight.
