Ocean Isle Beach

Happy Thankful Thursday!

I have more to share from my week visit to Sunset Beach, NC. We saw an amazing sunset at the beach. Lots of birds and lovely beach scenery. On this day hubby and I walked on the nearby Ocean Isle Beach. 

Various shorebirds and gulls resting on a sand bar in between Ocean Isle beach and Sunset Beach. The birds were too far away to get a good clear shot.  This photo just shows that it was a large group of various birds.












These beaches were beautiful, nice clean sand and gorgeous views of the ocean and sky. 


I am thankful for all the good that is in my life and being here to enjoy a walk on the beach.
I am always thankful for your visits and your comments.


Thank you Michelle for hosting. Thankful Thursday

  1. Wonderful views. I only hope that we can somehow get climate change under control or these beaches are going to disappear. Even the increased frequency and intensity of hurricanes is already threatening them. It is pretty sad what we have done to this world.

  3. The last photo is my pick for favorite. And when you post one with your shadows I always think of the poem 'I have a little shadow. It goes in and out with me . . .' Happy Day.

  14. You have indeed captured the cleanliness and the beauty of the beaches. Nice shots.

    I have a question -- I think you used to host a meme. I have linked my yesterday's post to your meme but I can't find your meme in your page. Please let me know where it is.

    Thank you.
