The View From My Chair (and a video)




Come
sit
awhile
with
me.















Breathe in the stillness

Listen to the waves

Inhale the breeze
Exhale the clouds.....but not before you honor their power
They'll soon pass us by
Talk to a seagull guarding his turf
He had some wisdom for me.....
Sandy toes I do not care
Scold me scold me if you dare
Curly waves
windy waves
tangled hair
I do not
care



It was windy and just perfect enough weather to want to stay out forever in my chair.
I hope it plays since it took me 2000 hours to upload it you enjoy the sound of the healing peaceful ocean. And thanks for reminding me about the sunblock. It was so nice of you to spray my back. Whew. I'm glad I brought you along.

See you tomorrow with a scary encounter on the shore with one of nature's clawy beasts! How dare he try to bite the Queen! I was not amused.
Neither was he.
Luckily, I filmed the whole thing.....right up until the scream.
Stay tuned.

NOTE: The only photo enhanced image is the next to the last one that is a bit darker. The rest came straight out of the camera. The sky was just glorious and I was thrilled to be able to capture it.*Photography credit: Mimi Lenox**

arggggggggggggg I need the ocean...but your pictures are wonderful...though I do not see the video, but that could be a work thing

Mimi Lenox said...

Vinny - I do see it so it must be your work thing. I have several more videos and pictures to upload over the course of the next couple of days. I KNOW you need the beach. Soon, my friend, soon!

Boy that ocean sure is loud or was that someone breathing heavy?

SOunds windy too. I am looking forward to more videos.

Jamie said...

That ocean sounded strong and powerful not peaceful, but that's the way I like oceans (among other things)

Linda said...

Darn! I got an error message and couldn't see the video! Which totally stinks because I love the sound of the ocean as well as all of your pictures. I am especially enchanted with that last one as seen through your sunglasses - very, very cool!

I could use some nice relaxing time at the beach with the stress I've been under lately but I think it's getting better ... at least I sure hope so!

Mimi Lenox said...

Pam - Yes, of course that was someone breathing heavy. Bwaaahhaahaaa.
You are too funny.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jamie - That's the way I like it too. Wink.

Mimi Lenox said...

Linda - This has been a stress-buster for sure for me. Incredible trip. Really.

Mimi Lenox said...

The last I checked the video was working for me.....Uploading more for tomorrow. Please somebody let me know if they are not working for you.

Thank you :)
It was nice visiting your ocean for a change! The wind and the waves sound the same but the view is different.
Can't wait to see your scary encounter video!

Red Shoes said...

Wow... very nice... I need to make a trip to either the mountains or the beach before the Fall Semester starts...

Hmmm... beach... mountains... beach... mountains... beach... hmmm...

I hope you are having a wonderful break...

Red Shoes! I know what you mean!!!
So I solved it like this: trip to the ocean in September, after the kids are back in school. Trip to the mountains for the fall colors in late October!
Mimi, LOVED your pictures, and more than that, just knowing you were in a peaceful, spiritual state of mind. All except for the clawed creature of course! Can't wait to read about that!
