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

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.

...the last one is the winner for me!

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.

reading your comments at the beginning, I was thinking how Bob and I and you of course, never get tired of sand/surf/birds/beaches. and sunset/sunrises. no matter how many times we go we love it.

“Thankful for all the good in my life” . . .
Loved hearing that Eileen . . .
All the blue, beach views with birds in the distance made this post a favorite!
Thankful often is the little things . . .

Always love seeing the beach, since we don't have much beach here along with the exotic birds--exotic to me, at least. Alway aa treat to visit you.

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.

I love the soothing sounds of the surf and the calls of the sea birds. Glad you had such a nice time together.

Time is really moving way too quickly. Do you think January and February will go as quickly? These photos are just beautiful and almost hard to believe it's the last day of November!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

It looks like a great time. I love the shadow selfie and what looks to my landlubber's eye, a fishing boat.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Beautiful - lovely beaches. I love the boat - my dad fished with the same kind of boat in Southeast Alaska many, many years ago.

Patti said...

Beautiful beaches! I love finding a large group of birds--and then trying to identify them...

Sussi said...

Lovely beach and photos! I love the sea.

Phil Slade said...

Beautiful beach and ocean photos, Eileen. I lived near the Atlantic Ocean for most my life and miss it at times, so it's nice to see it in photos.

great sky and beach :) And a weird boat at the horizon. :)

At first I thought that was a low flying plane and then realized it's a ship of some sort? Beautiful shots. I was always thankful for walks along the beach! Have a great Sunday, Eileen!
