Ocean Waves (Take 60 Seconds To Enjoy)

I took this video of the ocean waves coming unto the sandy beach (some seaweed included).


60 seconds of pure calm and peaceful tide. 


Today, they finally took down the purple flags that indicate dangerous marine life, so we were able to go in the ocean and really enjoy. 


The rhythm of the ocean waves, the sun tanning our skin, the warm relaxing water, and the people playing and laughing (and some kissing).  


Thank you Hashem for this wonderful day and the beautiful world you created for us to partake of–blessed are thou!

Turtle Tank

Turtle
I took this photo while kayaking yesterday in Maryland.



Turtles are one of my favorite creatures. 



The challenge in photographing them while they sun tan on the tree trunk is that when you get to close they simply dive into the water. 



This one turtle was a little older and larger, and was basically fearless. 



We paddled right up to him and  he held steady there.



So awesome–turtles live in and by the beautiful water, have a tank-like protective armor, and are basically peaceful loving.



While I never got into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I think the real ones are all that. 😉
