The Beach Walk

 Today I decided I really needed to buy myself a new pair of trainers - my mum and dad gave me some money for my birthday so that was their treat to me. 

Thanks Mum and Dad :))
So I walked into town had a look and found a good deal on my shoes. 
They are Sketchers Pro TR Shape Ups.  
Apparently they give you shapely legs!! 
Well, I'm all for that. 
We will just have to see how long it takes. I'll keep you informed and if they get really shapely and lovely I may even post a picture. 
Don't hold your breath though, lol.
Anyway, after I purchased my shoes I thought I'd walk home via the beach. 
 It was quite a nice day and really warm in the sun.
I'd brought my wee point and shoot with me so I snapped some pictures.

I love watching the waves coming in - it's very peaceful.

 There were plenty of birds there as well, I think this one was enjoying paddling his feet in the water :))

There were some wind surfers out too - you can just about see one in the distance there.

Here he is a wee bit closer.

 I really enjoyed my wee donner (walk) home it was very pleasant and relaxing:)
One thing I have noticed is that the brambles are starting to appear - I think that means that autumn might be just around the corner. 

Where did the summer go?

No walk for me today. Hurricane Isaac is raining on us. I'm not complaining, we sure do need the rain. The beach is one of my favorite places to go, but we are landlocked here. It's at least a 10-12 hour drive to the beach. We make do with lakes. Are those the shoes with the rounded bottom? I've seen them advertised. I'm interested to see if they work. Beautiful shots.
Gorgeous photos! lucky you living so near the sea - SO beautiful :)) a lovely place to work

Hi Ellie,
Thank you for stopping by and saying hi!! love your beach photos! I was raised on the ocean in St. Augustine, Florida and love watching the gulls float in the wind and checking out the saragosa seaweed for little creatures.
Glad we're at the end of summer - ready for a change in temperatures!

Lovely seaside shots, Ellie. I love all those little wavelets and the sound they make! I like the movement and the colours in that last shot!
Those new trainers sound ground... Miss Shapely Legs Ellie!
Have a great week!

Wonderful beach photos. Looks like a peaceful place indeed.
Oh I know where did it go, must be lovely to be able to go and walk on that beach.

Hi Ellie, please can you tell me the make and model of your point and shoot camera? You always get good quality photographs with it and it looks like it would be a useful addition to my ever growing wish list.

Great photos!

Summer is disappearing all too fast, Ellie, and I sure wish it would stay for just a bit longer.

These photographes are beautiful. It looks like such a wonderful place for a walk.
