Between the tides

Gladly the cold wave seems to be gone, so it was nice to come back to the sea shore.

on dirait un échiquier qui se perd dans la mer
they would say a chessboard which gets lost in the sea

Gorgeous JM! Was that rock cut for something or is that natural wear from the waves? I love the photos :)

Hilda said...

The water looks very deep here. Are the waters there good for scuba diving? Just curious — I don't dive. In fact, just looking at your photo gets my heart a-thumping!

Great capture...

I love the colour of that wave but brrrrr I bet it's cold!

Really beautiful water as Hilda say.
I'd like to jump into the sea too.

LOVE the moss on the stones. Just a gorgeous set today JM. Your weather looks perfect to me, It's in the 40's F here and everything is bare. Thankfully we have a sunny bright day. cheers!

Both the before and after photos are fantastic. That water is soooo blue. Wow. Are those hewn stones or natural? They're beautiful.

I'm here to catch up on some of your posts, and you clearly live in a magical place. The art, architecture, gardens, and sea all combine into a balanced, human-scale setting. Those houses must be in high demand!

You live in a beautiful world, JM. Looking at your blog is a always special. And you're so generous with your compliments to everyone on their blog, you're a a real treat!.

Tanya and Willow,
the pattern on the rocks is just erosion.

Hilda,
yes, you can do scubadiving here, but it's no big deal for me. Tere is nothing like the coral reefs! :-)

Thank you all for your kind comments.

You can scuba dive here too, but I garee it just does not compare. This does remind me of the shoreline around Peel here.

Nice photos to look at on this cold day here in Tennessee!

Jules said...

So much more peaceful but it still looks very cold!!! Love the rock formations.

Marie-Noyale said...

Is the water still at a good temperature for swimming?
It looks like it...so tempting!!!!

Tash said...

Very cool square pattern on the rock. We have the ocean so close by and just don't go there as often as we could/should. Your post is a wonderful reminder of the beauty of the shore and to take advantage of it. I'm so glad you do.

I just love the water. Even here the rivers that flow into salt water are governed by the tides. People look at me strange when I say--"oh the river is low--the tide must be out", They think only the ocean is bound by the tides. Nope!! MB

Jules and Marie-Noyale,
from May to October you can see everydody swiming at the beaches but now I guess it's freezing!

Hilda said...

You dive? Then you really must come to the Philippines! You can't miss Palawan or Tubbataha Reef. As I said, I don't dive, but my sister and cousins do.

Low tide, looks like an old roman road.
