Love for the ocean


"The biggest sin in the world would be if I love my love for the ocean."

~~ Laird Hamilton



[Note: If you click on the photo above, it will enlarge. If you enlarge it, you will see a dark speck in the middle of the photo, slightly above the horizon. This tiny dot is not a speck of dust on my lens, but a Gulf Fritillery or Monarch butterfly. I mentioned recently that the island has been covered in beautiful butterflies -- Monarchs have been migrating -- and this is a testament to that fact. Even at the beach and out in the Gulf of Mexico you could see them. So, 'note to self', if you are planning a visit next fall, check the estimated arrival of the Monarchs!]

In SD, we get the Painted Lady Butterflies...one year it was so awesome! There were thousands that were blown out to sea by the Santa Ana's...and I happen to be at the beach to see therm all flying back in from the ocean! It was awesome! (I wish I had my camera!)
