Friday Foto Finish Fiesta

Here you go Carrie. Wish I could just hang around all day like these guys. Until the kid in the blue shorts tried to pry them off the rock. What a tool that kid is going to grow up to be.

Dontcha feel sometimes that life is like clinging to the rock against the pounding waves?







The beach is a place where a man can feel - he's the only soul in the world that's real....

I love the analogy about life. I so completely agree.

MereinSC said...

i love your quote about the beach... i'll be writing that one down.

nice blog btw.

Laura said...

How pretty is that starfish! I have never seen one naturally like that!

SuzyQ said...

Ah, what I wouldn't give to live near the beach instead of land-locked Indiana! Love the quote!

Just The Girl said...

Cool picture...

Lori said...

Eww, slimy starfish... great picture though!

Judy Haley (coffeejitters) said...

Wow - you just summed up my life

great picture

Heather said...

Sigh...I love the beach.

I've never seen a real live starfish like that before. It looks like he was a big one!

Lula! said...

As Heather said, I've never seen a starfish like that--one living, that is. Oh the beach...it's where I long to be, and more than one week out of the year!

Swirl Girl said...

WOW!

Thanks for stoppin in y'all!

By the way - it is actually two starfish on that rock.

Just two homies in their hood...

Romi said...

That is cool. Love the starfishes.

We have a large purple starfish on the BC coast called a Pisaster.

I wonder if The Who could have worked in a line about 'Natural Pisasters' when Jimmy was sleeping on the beach?

Angie said...

That pic is awesome! I've seen your name all over the place, so I'm glad I finally stumbled on your site. Very pretty! :-)

Brittany said...

Is it horrible I also called the kid in the blue shorts a tool out loud as well?

Rhea said...

I AM that Starfish, tryin to hold on tight today. Some days are just rough.

I loved hearing the wind and the waves. Thanks for the video clip.

Jennifer said...

That starfish looks like how I feel some days!! VERY cool pic!!

LiteralDan said...

That's a great comparison, for better or worse. The starfish doesn't look too happy about it in that shot, though, so I guess that makes it a sad one.

Veronica said...

Love the starfish photo! The second photo looks like the perfect beach to play "From Here to Eternity" you know like the movie...you lie in the sand embracing your SO and the waves crash over you...very romantic.

Debbie said...

WOW! I have never seen a real starfish. That is so cool.

Caroline said...

That is a great picture! BTW, I am liking your new look - this is my first time seeing it. You've probably had it for like 10 weeks or something. It looks great!

Insane Mama said...

Is that Leo Carillo? One of my favorite beaches and a place where tenter and I go camping ALL THE TIME!
When kids grab starfish I feel like smacking them! And their idiot parents that don't tell them to stop

Swirl Girl said...

Yes insane ma'am. That is Leo Carillo State Park!

Maybe we've seen each other there before and didn't even know it!

I was just there last weekend, too!

Colleen said...

such a neat analogy because, yes, there are days that I feel like I'm hanging on there's some tool trying to pry me off to knock me back into the surf. gorgeous pic, too
