Beach Fences

Hello, from Carolina Beach...I finally made it!
Do you remember back in January when I was only going to Carolina (Beach) in my mind?
Well, I am posting this as I'm listening to the lovely sound of the waves crashing against the shore!
I'm soooo excited to be here!



We arrived yesterday afternoon and drove a few miles down the coast to Fort Fisher
while we waited to get into our room.


I just love the rocks along the shoreline and this great fence.


I came back this morning to get a shot of the sunrise.


The sky was a brilliant pink, it was 81 degrees and about 90% humidity at 5 AM...
...muggy is not quite a strong enough word to describe it.
It was all I could do to get any decent photos due to the lens fogging up.



One of my favorite things about Fort Fisher are these wonderful trees...


...I love the way the wind and waves have shaped them through the years.


Back at the beach walkway from our condo.


An afternoon thunderstorm came through and cooled things off considerably...


...we were SO thankful for this!


And this evening, this friendly guy let me walk right up to him as we walked the pier.


It's back to the real world after tomorrow :(
Oh well....

I'm linking up with Tex at the Run*A*Round Ranch for Good Fences.
Have a great Friday!

  2. SO many great fences at the beach. I especially like the photos of the wooden posts, with the rusty chains and the rocks. They make a beautiful combinations. I like the pelican, too.

  11. You once again have captured beautiful images. I know right where you are. One of our last vacations with my parents while Dad was still living was right there. Lots of good memories. Seems the humidity is so much worse in the early morning … maybe it's the dew, what do i know.

    1. Thanks, Dotsie! That's so cool to know that you have been right there! We love going there...it's close and not so commercialized like Myrtle Beach or other more popular. Enjoy your weekend!

  12. HI Debby! I'm so glad that you had some rain, and cooler temps. I am spending this week with a friend in the very south of the state, and there has been a heat advisory which will last until Tuesday! Very hot. Very humid.
    Your photos look so great though, I want to jump into the ocean! I can see why you like it so well, and the sunrise photos are spectacular. Love the pinks and the softness of the sky.
    Enjoy your last day, and say hi to the pelican for me!

    1. Ceil...the only relief WAS to jump in the ocean and if was heavenly! We had pink skies in the morning AND evenings...I guess that explains the storms....beautiful though, in between them and we really welcomed the one that left a refreshing breeze behind!

  15. I'm so glad to see that you were able to have your dreamy beach vacation! You'll have lots of lovely memories to reflect on when you return to reality.
    Thanks for sharing these beautiful images with us! I'm glad you weren't able to share that humidity with us too...although we have been having some of our own, so no worries. ;)

  17. It's a little easier facing the 'real world' after being at the beach though! Something about the ocean calms and renews us. Beautiful photos my friend! Lots of good fences! Enjoy your weekend! Hugs!

  18. Hahaha, these are great! The pelican one made me laugh. They are so comical looking. This series would be great for one of Miz Vee's note card parties later on.

  22. Oh my, what breathtaking photos of a beautiful place! I love each image for different reasons. The third from the top makes me smile; it has a very happy vibe to it, while the 6th is pure drama, mystery and movement. Enjoy your time there!

  27. Gloriously beautiful photos, Debby! I've never been to the East Coast, but it looks like the sights are just as pretty as those on my side of the country! Hope you had a wonderful time. But, having just gotten back from a small vacation ourselves, I understand how difficult the *re-entry* process can be!! So, wishing you a good week!

    GOD BLESS!

    1. And I have never been to the west coast, Sharon...I will say that there is quite a difference between the east coast and the Gulf of Mexico on the Florida pan handle. Ever been there? The sand is white like sugar and the water is aqua...beautiful. I do love the ocean, no matter where I see it...the vast and powerful water just takes me to another place and I feel the presence and power of God more strongly than any other place. I am back to work now (we only stayed for a few days) and the time off was great! Blessings, friend!
