"Seas" The Day

Some days you just need to be at the beach...
salt in the air - sand in your hair.

There is nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, 
no matter how many times it is sent back to sea!

Low tide, blue skies, tan sand, small splashes of white laced water...
for me, the beach is not a place...it's a feeling.

A feeling of love...

and a pocket full of happiness...
because on this 18th day of March, the ocean gave back many of it's treasures.

Spring officially starts today, is it looking like Spring where you live,

or is winter still hanging around?

We are expecting snow!

Mourning Doves

These two were up to no good when I spotted them on the deck rail.
I ran for the camera and when I got back, they appeared to be smooching.
By the time I opened the window and was ready with the camera,
they were acting like they did not know each other.

They did not "bring back that loving feeling"!

My Mourning Doves always visit in the evening, these pictures were taken at dusk.
Mine always appear chubby...
In my bird book it describes them as "sleek", a gray-brown pigeon-like bird.
The have the most amazing "coo-ing" sound,
the bird book describes it as 
"ooahoo oo oo oo"

They eat seed off the ground and love to visit the bird bath.
