You're being lead to your spot on the beach by a very kind gentleman whose job it us to tie that thick terry towel around the back of your chair.

Star - Life with a Horse

When your horse follows you without being asked,
when he rubs his head on your head,
and when you look at him and feel a tingle down your spine...
...you know you are loved.

~ John Lyons

A lovely horse is always an experience,
it is an emotional experience of the kind that is spoiled by words.

Love Imposes Rhythm on the Ocean Tides

beach photography, inspirational quote art

I took this photo one evening as I walked along the beach.

It's so easy to be at peace watching, and listening to, the ocean waves gently rolling onto shore..isn't it?  Easy to release our white knuckled grip on life's concerns and allow them to be swept up in the coastal current and washed out with the tide.

O, To Be Under a Blue Beach Umbrella

If you're a beach bum, then you'll love this beach photography of one of the regulars along the shore ~ a blue beach umbrella

On this stunning day, the beautiful turquoise water was so clear I could see the sand and shells gently tumbling along the bottom with the warm coastal current.

Between the peaceful sound of the ocean waves gently rolling up onto the sand, the calm horizon of the sea, and the abundant sunshine bathing me in warmth, all I needed was the ideal spot to lay back and relax.
