Happy Thankful Thursday!

Happy Thankful Thursday! 🙂

These are some images from our little getaway to Ocean City Md Feb 4-6th.  We stayed at a Doubletree hotel on the beach and we had a nice partial view of the ocean. 

Our "partial" view of the ocean from our hotel room and balcony. The sky and view looked beautiful.  



More of our partial view, Ocean City Maryland beach. 



We saw a few Ruddy Turnstones at the inlet and there were some Long-tailed Ducks.  I was missing the Purple Sandpipers, not seen on this trip. 





A few Bufflehead ducks.  


Looking back at the Ocean City fishing pier. 




Ocean City jetty 


Hubby's favorite thing is to watch the waves crashing on the rocks. 


The temps were in the 40's this day and there were surfers catching waves. 


Ocean City Inlet sunset. 




 Sun is setting and lighting up the amusement rides.



More of the sunset at the inlet.


I see a small line of birds in flight, maybe cormorants or ducks. 



A pretty sunset and some jet contrails. 



FYI, I changed my comment form so I can reply. If you ask me a question I will reply with an answer or I will thank you for commenting and for your visit.  I will see how long this will work, when weather permits I prefer to take walks outside and I have less computer time. 

 
I am thankful for each day I see the sunrise and sunset.  
Each Day I am Thankful, Grateful and Blessed!
am thankful for all your visits and comments.

  3. Purple Sandpiper is a rarity here, a bird I seldom get to see, so I would have ben disappointed too. The World Wood Carving Championship is held in Ocean City, MD each year. Have you ever been to that? I am sure that some of the work on display must be incredible. The Canadian Nationals are held in March each year and I have the pleasure of being one of the judges for the second year in a row, and some of the prize winning carvings will go on to compete in Ocean City.

    1. Hello David, No I have not been to the World Wood Carving Championship. It sounds interesting, I will see when the next one happens. I am sure the wood carvings are beautiful. Thanks for the comment, enjoy your day!

  25. It looks very pretty. I bet it's chilly this time of year.

  26. Stunning orange sky. I like the way the balconies jut out toward the water. Nice job catching the surfer and all are great shots that make you feel the spray and hear the crash of the waves. Arcade and amusement ride shots are among my favorites.

  27. Gorgeous, Eileen. So nice to have the beach to yourself, too. Love how the sun hit the amusement park and the line of birds flying in the sunset. Truly sigh-worthy! x K

  32. I certainly agree with you about being outdoors & less computer time. After my heart attack my eyes opened up & I realized the world is passing me by sitting at the computer all day!! I limit myself to one hour, blogging/visiting. Now...for your post...beautiful, every bit. I've been to Ocean City, and enjoyed it. I'm with both of you: sunsets, birds, & crashing waves.

  38. Hello Eileen,
    a really great view from your hotel room :-)
    I find the stonecraft photographed very nicely but I am impressed by the Bufflehead ducks. We do not have these in the Netherlands.
    The photos you have taken of the sky and his beautiful orange gilt are really fantastic. I really enjoyed it.
    Greetings and a very nice weekend,
    Helma

  39. The sky is amazing...so lovely on a winter day! And the birds...I’d love to see a bufflehead. The waves crashing on the rocks reminds me more of the Oregon Coast ...the Pacific Ocean is so much wilder than what we see here in ?Florida of the Atlantic or the Gulf. I guess your part of the Atlantic is more scenic. Have you guys been to Oregon? I remember your Washington State trip ...and I guess the ocean there is the same pretty much )).
