Living at the Jersey Shore

I can't imagine life without this...

The gorgeous beaches in Manasquan, New Jersey


and the inlet, only 10 minutes from home!!
It looked like this yesterday,
even in frigid temperatures, the boats come and go.


The seagulls fly overhead,


and willingly pose for pictures!!


The calm water brings me comfort!!


The Herring Gulls were floating,


and soaring!!


The view was breathtaking,


and full of surprises!!

Sharing with


Please stop by to view all the amazing birds from around the world!!

  6. Wow...those in flight captures are magnificent! But honestly...I don't like gulls...whenever I see them at the shore or boardwalk I want to yell "INCOMING" and dive :)

  7. How lucky you are to live so close to such a beautiful area. Our place is within walking distance to Lake Michigan beaches. There is just something about being near the water. Lovely photographs, Debbie!

  11. Wonderful shots Debbie. Your gulls are knock outs. The coast is very beautiful but chilly looking. The river has frozen here as of yesterday and the snow has been falling all day. Time for a hot tea and WBW!

  29. You are lucky, Hon!!!! Glad you appreciate it.

    We miss the ocean. Used to be able to visit Cape Cod, in autumn, in days gone by. But his sight does not allow much driving, now. And I am not up-to the big roads necessary, to get from here to there. -sigh-

    But we still enjoy our memories. :-)

    Mmmmmm, I have a *Grumpy* post today. Hope you have time to pop over and read it. :-)

    "I'm tired, tired, tired,
    of *new,* *new,* *new*..."

  36. Bardzo bym chciała mieszkać nad morzem, słuchać szumu fal, spacerować po plaży, oglądać mewy i szukać muszelek.Niestety nie mieszkam, ale wszystkie wakacyjne wyjazdy są nad morze. Piękne zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam.***
    I'd love to live by the sea, listen to the waves, walk on the beach, watching seagulls and look for seashells. Unfortunately I do not live, but all are holiday trips to the seaside, because I love them. Beautiful pictures. Yours.
