Birds View of Paradise

Posted on

Image
When I’m at the beach I often wonder what the birds think about us watching them watch us. This bird might be part of the gull family and then again maybe not even close, I have no idea. What I do know a bird like this one was very cleaver and resourceful and I didn’t have my camera that day to photograph the escapade, darn. I was napping one foggy morning and I caught glimpse of a bird getting on top of a beach chair and pecking his way into this brown paper bag and he pulled out a sandwich in a zip lock bag, he grabbed it and proceed to hide from his flock mates and tried to open it this went and this went on for quit a while before some kid ruined the fun and took it away and buried it in the sand. I though that butt head, what fun was that? Then the guy returned to find his bag ripped open and his snack missing 🙂 That was just as much fun. Now, I’m thinking what’s the bird thinking about all his hard work taken from him in a moment’s notice? I think he would be thinking… I’m gonna fly over and poop on that kids head! That would be justifiable pooping in my opinion or at least that’s how I wanna believe the story ended.

It’s Bigger then Us

Posted on

Another day is done and what better way to relax and find your sweet spot than taking your best friend for a walk on the beach. It’s not just man who finds peace and tranquility uniting with Mother Nature so does all of Gods creatures both pets and wild life. It’s an awesome feeling knowing that life on earth has rallied around the ocean and standing at any shoreline you know that Adam and Eve, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Caveman and Cave women, and all of life throughout history you are at that moment standing and looking out the same view the past civilizations and inhabitants had in there day. This is the same ocean from biblical times to Atlantis, the Mayans, the Romans, and Columbus all sailed on to travel, work, and explore it’s bigger than any of us, more vast than we can truly comprehend, it seems to be infinite, but is it? Of course not and if we don’t respect it and nurture it one day we might damage it beyond the healing point and then we will be robbing future generations the same awe inspiring vision we have all enjoyed and have been inspired by and have fallen in love with over the centuries.

A Walk In The Park

Another morning in the park as we rolled through the holidays and now New Years is almost here; I can always find a moment of peace in my backyard. I love my neighborhood park, my urban oasis, not sure the correct term, but Cottonwood Park is a awesome little city park in Dallas County that is very family friendly with activities such as fishing, picnicking, court sports, pool, and massive play area. This park has the feeling of the great Texas outdoors complete with wildlife and natural history, it’s also home to the world renowned Cottonwood Art Festival, artist from all over the country and the world return year after year to show their latest works of art, and it’s a great show. This amazing Texas Park offers some of the best Texas has to offer with plenty of things to do while soaking up the sun and scenery as you escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. This is where you can find me almost every day while I’m in Dallas; getting my daily exercise and meditation time in before the interruptions of my daily life kicks in. Stop and listen, your oasis is calling…

Wipe Out at Newport Beach California. This was fun not because I wish failure on anyone, but because I caught it on my camera 🙂 He was doing very well for several runs and then Mother Nature showed him who’s really in control the law of average’s, etc. Whenever you spending the day at the beach in the surf, it’s a great day!

California Boogie!

Posted on

Image

Its funny most people don’t know the difference between Boogie Boards (Bodyboards) and Skimboards, this pic is a Skimboarder but “California Boogie” made a better caption 🙂 The best So Cal Skimboard beaches are in and around Laguna Beach, but this was taken at Newport Beach. This guy on the next run wiped out, big! That photo I’ll post at a later date. Skimboards are fun because you attack or launch into the wave from the shoreline. All surfing is fun from Surfboards, Skimboards, to Bodyboards, heck you don’t even need a board, body surfing is also a blast. Anytime you’re having fun in the surf, it’s a Great Day!

West Lake at Sunset

West Lake is a freshwater lake located in the historic area of Hangzhou the capital of Zhejiang province in eastern China, not far from Shanghai. West Lake is enormous and beautiful, it has an open ocean feel to it. West Lake has influenced poets and painters throughout the ages for its natural beauty and it has been among the most important sources of inspiration for Chinese garden designers thought the centuries. Hangzhou is an area of great natural beauty and art. Even though Hangzhou is a big city, it maintains this out in the country feel, very relaxed, and slow paced. I would much rather spend time here than in Shanghai, but that is my opinion only.
