I love the sea (photos + film)

 

 

 

I love the sea.

No matter how the weather is, whether hot or cold, windy or rainyΒ  I love to be at the sea.

Never before have I had the few days of vacation as needed as this summer.
In my last post I wrote that I had a construction site IN my apartment for 10 weeks.

Every year we went cycling by the sea, to a different place almost every day.

But not this time!

We took hours of walks by the sea, slept late, made no plans for the next day.
For a week we simply rested, enjoyed the sea, calmed our nerves.

Of course I took photos again. I think I have a million photos of the sea now, but still I take new photos every year hihi

I took this photo the first day. It was very cloudy and windy, perfect for kiting

Here my favourite motive at the sea, waves that break

We passed the bike to walk up the stairs to the beach.
No, that wasn’t our usual way to the beach. We went that way for the photos. As you can see on the photos, the weather was perfect

Beach 2018 - 05

Here you can walk up the steps in the middle of the dunes.
The brown is not withered but a special form of the plant Ericaceae. This plant can be found all over the dunes because it can grow on sandy soil and thus prevents the sand from being blown away.

And now the best look of all when you’ve gone up all the steps. Down the stairs to the beach.
When I was standing on top, I made a little video with my mobile πŸ™‚Β The noise in the video is the wind and the sea

I hope you like the view too ❀ ❀ ❀

Baby animals in the zoo (photos)

I went to the zoo – again. Now is exactly the right time to go to the zoo because you can see many baby animals.
Weather was not so good because it was very hot and humid.
But to see the baby animals was worth it.

This baby lion was the first thing I took pictures of today.

Lion baby

The tiger is not a baby but he has not let the lion baby out of his sight! Maybe he thought it would be his next meal hehe (and I liked this photo)

Tiger

Bear mommy never let her baby out of her sight. If the little one went anywhere, Mama would run after the baby

Mama bear with baby

I felt sorry for the little monkey. He was playing alone with the sticks the whole time. No grown-up monkey came to him once…

Baby ape

The scene with these monkeys was funny. At first I thought the little guy wanted to drink. But he bent over and over again and looked at the water. Maybe he wanted to know who the monkey was looking at him in the water.

I have no idea what the bird is called but these huge Feet!!!!! πŸ˜€

Bird with huge feet

This little calf must have been very young. It was very unsteady and fell into a small ditch. Luckily, nothing happened.

Say hello to spring (photos)

This winter was damn long and cold!

Until two weeks ago I left the house in a warm winter jacket.

And it was 77 degrees today.

Yesterday I drove past my favourite park and saw that everything was colourful.

A good reason to take the camera and take pictures on a sunny day.

I’m about to start with my favorite flowers: Daisies πŸ˜€

Spring 2018-01

The next two photos look like I changed the color. But the tulip field really looked like this!
Many other visitors of the park took pictures with their mobile phones because the colours red, yellow, orange were simply amazing.

I don’t know what kind of tree it is. But some of the trees with pink flowers are in the park and you can see the pink from afar.

That dandelion reminded me of my childhood. After school, I used to pick dandelion for my hamsters in the meadow.

Let it snow, let it snow (photos)

Β  I woke up this morning and it was all white outside. Snow everywhere!!

All I had to do was to find my woolly hat and gloves (it happens to me every year. One is surprised by the cold season hihi)

I took my camera and made photos.

On the beach – photos and sound

The last days I have been on vacation at my favourite beach ❀ ❀ ❀

One night I recorded the sound of the sea with my mobile. It was a little windy as you can hear πŸ™‚

I’ve taken lots of photos

The next photos are made by low tide

Say it with Shakespeare – Zoo photos

Last weekend we went to a zoo.  ❀

I made a lot of photos and when I saw this photo with the ape I started laughing because it remembered me of a scene from one of my fav writer William Shakespeare πŸ˜€

I tried to find Shakespeare quotes that works with my photos πŸ˜€

To eat, or not to eat: that is the question

Zoo-16

Well roared, lion ape!

Zoo-04

What a piece of work is a crane! How noble in reason!Β 

Zoo-13

I like this place and could willingly waste my time on it

Zoo-10

But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and you are the sun.

Zoo-15

Out, damned spot! Out, I say!

Zoo-06

They do not love, that do not show their love.

Zoo-03

O sleep! O gentle sleep!

Zoo-14

Do you think because you are virtuous, that there shall be no more cakes and ale?

Zoo-09

Self-love, my liege, is not so vile a sin, as self-neglecting.

Zoo-02

For which of my bad parts didst thou first fall in love with me?

Zoo-08

Fight for the last gasp.
