Watching the Waves


One of my big stress reliefs lately is to go a body of water and sit and watch the water and the waves. I love watching the power of the ocean and the stillness of it at the same time:





Got some surfers out there





It may be simple but it is something that relaxes me.

  3. I'm the same way about water. It calms me and relaxes me. You're lucky if you live close to the ocean!

  4. Unless our weather is stormy our ocean is quite calm here between Vancouver Island and the mainland. - Margy

  5. I live by the ocean Patrick and never get tired of watching the waves no matter what the weather is like. I especially like it when it is stormy. Thanks for sharing your photos with us at #MLSTL and enjoy your week.

  8. There's something mystical about the seashore that takes away your worries, at least for a while. Lovely images.

    'My Corner of the World' wouldn't be the same without you this week!

  11. I think the ocean reminds us of how small we are and also shows the calm and the storm and that both are beautiful. Lovely pics Patrick.
    Thanks for linking up with us at MLSTL and I've shared on my SM :)

  13. Patrick, beautiful photos! I feel just the same about the ocean--the sight, the smell, the sound of it is just magical. We once stayed in a hotel on the ocean where at high tide the water came right up to the building. Being on our balcony was like being on a cruise ship. Unforgettable!

  14. I used to go to Pacifica for years to do the very same thing. Sit out on the rocks in front of Nick's and just enjoy the surf. Most relaxing.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Patrick. ♪♫♪♫

  18. I used to do the same thing while living in Greece. Just sit by the beach and watch the waves come and go. Sometimes I'd fall asleep to the sound of the waves, it was so relaxing.
