This boat was shipwrecked on the beach in 2013. According to this article – https://islandfreepress.org/outer-banks-news/11112013-shipwreckedsailboatsonpeaislandaredrawingthecurious/ – the owner tried to rescue it. Since this picture was taken in 2017 – I’m going to assume the owner gave up
This week we are asked to share photos that depict a quiet moment in our lives. One of my favorite places to go is the beaches on Hatteras Island. Even in the summer – these beaches do not get crowded.
I also love the quiet of the morning where I can go around my yard with my camera and coffee and look for insects to photograph.
We are fortunate to live on a neighborhood lake where we can sit and enjoy the waterfowl go by and hear birds chirping all around us. It’s a huge reason why we have not sold a house that has grown too big for us.

Tina has invited us to share our photo interpretations of all wet. The first one is my husband on the verge of wiping out. Even though he is already wet from surfing, the wave will hit with some force pushing him off the board and into the water below.
Next is a robin having an awesome time taking a bath.
Last is one of my favorite shore birds getting ready to take the plunge into the sea.

Cee asked us to choose items from a picture this week to represent in photos. I chose fishing. Here are 2 photos showing different methods of fishing. Both of these were taken on Hatteras Island, NC.

This week we are looking at simplicity through our photos. Here are a few that I feel represent this weeks topic.
Simple pleasures (and not terribly high in calories)
A walk on the beach which I could do everyday if I lived closer to one
Watching the birds in our yard. We are soooo excited because this year we finally have bluebirds in one of our bird houses
Spring blossoms always bring a smile

The theme for this week is chaos which is certainly timely. I hope everyone is staying safe, practicing good hand hygiene, social distancing to curtail the spread and staying up-to-date with reputable sources like CDC and WHO. I used to work in a hospital clinical laboratory so I can only imagine the chaos they are experiencing. I was working there in the 1980’s when HIV hit us but I think the difference today is that you can get your information (or misinformation) in an instant. Anyway – I decided to use pictures of the surf and surfing to visually describe chaos.
Just look at the chaos in this water coming to shore
Surfers certainly understand the chaos of the waves (note – no surfers were harmed in the taking of these photos and all are family)
At times, the wave chaos gets the best of a surfboard. This is a photo of my husband during our time in Rincon Puerto Rico. His Puerto Rico surfing days were over for this trip!

Dogs and kids at the beach having fun
This picture brings back so many memories of these 2 dogs who are no longer with us. Bronco (the lab) raised Pippin (the Jack Russell). They were so good together. This photo also brings back the memories of film photography using point and shoot cameras, however, I’m glad I made the move to digital!!
Several of our family members surf and I stay on the beach taking photos. I have many pictures of them waiting for the perfect wave. It’s really cool when a pelican flies nearby one of them waiting for the wave.
