This is dedicated to my daughter Jeannie who loves going to this place as much as I do.

Life’s A Beach a poem by RestLeSsD

Life’s a beach
Or so they say,
I must agree
On this glorious day.

A more beautiful place,
I’ll never see.
A more bluer sky
I’ll never see.

Being on the beach
Is a favorite for me
On the warm, soft sand,
Gazing at the sea.

Yes, my life’s a beach
On this glorious day.
And with this picture
It’ll stay that way. . .

One of my favorite places; on the beach on St. George Island. The island is in Florida, USA in the Gulf of Mexico just east of Apalachicola….

The original photo was shot with a Nikon CP8400. The people in this picture are my daughter & her friend. The empty chair is mine :o)

    What a wonderful work, Rhonda. Sand, sea and surf – what more could a body ask for? There’s a bit of envy up here in the still snowy and cold Ontario! :o)

  • Ah, that sounds brrrrrrrr.
    This was shot last summer so it’s wishful thinking… I will be there again this year so it’s an inspiration to keep me going :o) – hope it does it for you as well..
