Saturday sunshine and stormy seas

The sun came out today but we still had the cold northerly wind, which made for a very rough sea and spectacular waves crashing over the harbour wall. Despite the finger-numbing wind, Jana and I had a lovely walk on the beach.

The relative calm inside the harbour..........

........and the swell outside

Snow fell on the hills last night

Jana sitting, but not for long, because there are birds along the shoreline......

.........some redshanks..........

.......with a few turnstones mixed in

Looks like a bubble bath for these two

Taking to the air..........

..........wonder why?.........

........maybe they've seen the 'on point' vizsla?

The ones that got away!

We weren't the only ones on the beach today

This black lab was definitely a water lover

A jolly collie came past with mind set firmly on its ball

Six paps went out on the second shift
They got to go racing in the field by the woods

The reds take the lead

A passing snow cloud pauses briefly over Hopeman

The following two were taken on my third walk of the day

Pansy got to go out on her own with her ball for an early evening run on the beach. The tide had gone out so there was much more sand.

The wind hadn't let up though so still plenty of white water out there

Your wave shots are pretty impressive, hope you were standing well out of range. Loved the bird pictures too.

Hello there! What a kool blog you have & pawsome pictures of your dogs! My Mommy thinks Jana is gorgeous & her coat is in fantastic condition! We go for shows too. My Spotted sista has the same body as Jana. Very athletic & streamline. Sweet!

that first photo of jana is breathtaking! also, i am so jealous that you can take her for walks on the beach. i was watching several people with their dogs on the beach in oban and it made me wish i could magically transport my dogs to scotland... maybe someday :)

Amber and Nala said...

OMD....crashing is an understatement...those were some vicious waves! :) That sitting Jana pic is lovely! :)


Tee said...

Wow, that's some major waves going on!

Those shots of all of you chasing birds, running by the beach and racing each other are amazing!

So crisp. SO sharp!
