"There is no frigate like a book,
To take us lands away." Emily Dickinson
Everything looks so peaceful, except for the crab.
and the buzzing of the greenheads, the giant Jersey flies, which attacked me!
I'm so glad you have a blog because I love your pictures!
Ok, I admit it, I live for the praise! ;-)
The scenery would definitely make going out to market more enjoyable
Just beautiful! Thanks for sharing! Gee, the travel bug is sure biting me right now.Danielle @ Royalegacy
As always, amazing pictures. So GLAD I am making crab cakes tonight!!!
Just beautiful... I could seriously do with some scenes like these, but I guess your photos will just have to do.
Those blues and greens are breathtaking! I forgot how lovely the Jersey Shore can be. Have not visited for 8 years -- must get back there sometime soon.
To me you have captured the essence of Summer...I always feel I've missed something when I'm not by the shore, and this Summer I haven't been. To Toronto? Yes, but not the ocean. So lovely.
Or, of course, lake! :)
Your Jersey flies must have relatives on Long Island because they are annoying us here, too :) Always stunning shots. I love the steeple picture.
So peaceful looking. Do you live at the shore or is it a summer beach house?
I guess it depends on how you define 'at the shore'. I am close..
Those are some lovely shots!!http://www.homeofohm.com/2012/07/wordless-wednesday-1-big-fluffy-storm.html
I was thinking how restive... then the poor lilcrab ... better days for sure.
Very lovely shots. I could envision myself standing there overlooking it all. What a beautiful place!
That looks different than my boring market.http://joycelansky.blogspot.com/2012/07/wordless-wednesday-cousin-katys-super.html
Poor crab. I had days like that. At least I still have all my limbs.
Lovely captures of the greens. Sorry to see the crab though.
Lovely scenic views. It's nice to see some green. Everything is so brown here with our lack of rain.Ouch about the flies. They are nasty away from the shore too. They were biting mercilessly while I was taking photos of dragonflies at the marsh near my house.
Beautiful! It makes me want to step into the photo to enjoy the lovely scenery!Mirjam @ A Bookworm's Treasure Trove
Beautiful photos!I played too. Mine are here and here.
poor crab, he was something's dinner ..
Nature in the raw is seldom mild..or something like that.
Beautiful! The first shot with the seagull is my favorite.
Beautiful photos old crabby looks in a mood lol :-)Have a lovely rest of week :-)
lovely views. i love the steeple photo.
Beautiful and serene views!
Either it is low tide or the water level is low- kind of like it is here.Have a great WWPOSH
It was very very low tide.
I love that you do appreciate your surroundings. Mr. Crabs looks like he is no more.
I think Mr. Crab went off with Mr. Seagull..
This looks a lot like the town I come from, and even though I love living in the city, your gorgeous, peaceful pictures make me miss home!
Oh wow, these are stunning pictures! Makes me wish I was at the beach instead of stuck at home in front of a computer ;)
I wonder if it is low tide. The crab looks like it is "fish out of water". So cute the shorebirds are walking in a pattern of the wave.
Lovely series. How lucky you are to live so close to the sea.
I love all the birds in a row. Great photos, Caite!
Gorgeous summertime scenes :)
Beautiful photos! Love the grasses blowing in the breeze... Send a breeze to the Midwest :)
sorry, we need them here!
Photos are beautiful but the crab really has seen better days. Well I guess that's the circle of life and next time you go out near water please take me with you! I stumbled upon your blog from the Wordless Wednesday Link party and I love the layout!-MilynnLove and Whimsy
sorry about the word verification, but the spam is out of control..still, I LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!!
