A Happy Friday post from the Ocean!

in OCD2 months ago (edited)


"No ways! No, No, No" he said. "I am NOT going into that big waterbowl!"🤣

Time to laugh a bit, as the Hive price is up and Gold has just shot through the $2000 mark.

I spoil you with a special 3 part post on this happy day, so take your time and look at the photos!


So, his mom picked him up and all that he could look at is that big water bowl 🤣


A gentle put down, but just kept on staring at the big water!


Ah! A compromise, as he could only walk in the wet mess that the other dogs made!

End of Part 1.

"Health is the new wealth!"

"Happiness is the new rich!"

Part 2!


One of our local surfers in action here!


And here we had a guy taking off with a Kite!


A one handed glide across the rough of the waves!


Airborne, as he simply cleared this rising wave!

End of Part 2!

"Inner peace is the new success!"

"Kindness is the new cool!"

Part 3!


Yikes! Time to make a very quick u turn here!


Ooh! That is very cold Atlantic ocean water!


We gotta get out of here, as this is a nasty place!


Finally, he told the cold water what he thinks about it 🤣

And That's All Folks!

My first love is to place positive posts, as we all have to wade through the dark waters in this life.
At times the troubled waters seem to almost engulf us, but we are always offered an escape exactly the same as the two little dogs here had. Compromise, or flee.

Should the waves of our troubles become too big and scary, we can simply fly clear over them as the guy with the kite did so effortlessly. Of course he had the help of a kite and just so we have the help of our hope and our faith.
We hope that everyone here on #hive will have a great Friday and a good weekend!

And That's All Folks!

Thank you Liz 😍

Always 🙂❤️

#posh & #poshmark share:

That bloody scenery is enough to get a smile on my face!

Hahaha, thank you and I hope that you will have a happy weekend dude!

Fantastic images @papillioncharity.

Thank you kindly @dandays!

I really want to try kite surfing before I get too old. It looks like such a blast!

Hahaha, then you will have to get a move on, as I am already too old hahaha.
Time waits for no one my friend!

3 in one - I think all 3 parts would have made great individual posts 😀
My favourites are the first photos of each part - the U-turn is cool 😉

Cheers and !BEER

Hahaha, I so wish that you could have seen it with your own eyes Hannes.
Luckily people don't see or know that I have the zoom.
I decided to crop the lady out of the the very first photo because she looked totally exasperated, trying to pull the little dog towards the sea lol.

Yes, I could easily have made 3 posts, but time constraints and this slow PC would have meant most of my afternoon gone.

Btw. I got a very unusual shot today. Two Terns and an Oystercatcher together in flight. Of course the Terns are much faster than the Oystercatcher, but amazingly they slackened off to keep pace with him.
Never seen this before!

Here's the shot! The black one is the oystercatcher


Cheers and thanks!

Haha, yes, that must have looked so funny, and a zoom can be very handy in such cases 😉

I can imagine her face when she tried to pull the little dog 🤣

Looks cool, like a friendship across different kinds of birds. I haven't heard such of birds and that's surely very unusual to see, but of other animals I have heard of friendships though (cats and dogs 🤣).

Cheers and !BEER

Oh yeah, but I never try to embarass anybody lol.

The thing is that Terns can fly from here to the USA and the Oystercatcher can't.
In fact the Oystercatchers are on the rare endangered list and these two Terns seems to have made friends with one. That's why I said that it's an unusual shot.

Cheers and thanks!

Aha, now I understand better. Poor Oystercatcher must stay alone at home while the others fly on vacation, but maybe they take him with them on their back 😉

Cheers and !BEER

I heard that there is a protective colony of oystercathers, where they can breed not far from here at another seaside town Hannes.
The town is near the place where we found the Penguin colony and we will go and have a look if we can find it.

No way that that oystercatcher in the photo can ever get overseas, inless of course if he can stowaway on a ship. Lol.

Cheers and thanks!

It's good that they protect the endangered birds. I'm sure to see a post of this colony from you soon 😀

Cheers and !BEER

Oh yeah, after viewing the oystercather community and we will also make a turn at the penguin colony again.
From there we will go on a bit furter to do some whale watching.

Cheers and thanks!

Amazing clicks

Thank you kindly!

awesome shots by the ocean, I to was at a beach this morning but early to catch the sunrise before breakfast, my wife and I went together and it was a great way to start the day :)

Thank you and I think that you will get your usual excellent shots over there JJ.
Where are you wxactly, so that I can work out the time differences between your place and South Africa?
Great also to hear that you take Lulu with you on the walks.
Blessings to you guys!

I am in a city called New Bedford in Massachusetts the sane time zone as NY

Lulu has had a full recovery from her condition it’s amazing really our prayers were answered and she feels blessed and is loving life

Ah! I just told Marian about Lulu and please tell her that we praise our Lord for her improvement.
We are +- 6 hours ahead of you guys. We are 7:36pm now and you guys are 1:36pm.

So good to talk to you again my friend.

Blessings to you guys!

I thought about you to a lot while I was offline great to be in contact agai👍🙂👍

Oh yeah, you remember that you guys are on our prayer list?
I kept watching for your return, thinking that we would have to go over there to search for that old tattooted thug, but you slipped in through the back door and I only saw your shared post on the blog of that Austrian mountain goat, @johannpiber

Good to have you back happy and breathing my friend and also for bringing the great news of Lulu with you.

Blessings to the both of you from both of us!

Ohh yes I know that and you are on our prayer list my friend, sorry for sneaking in the back door, but that's always been my way sneak in and out quietly :)

Hahaha, you certainly haven't lost your humour.
So good to smile together again and I think that you are slowly getting to grips with the retirement life, as I knew you would.
Just a tip, if you get bored, don't tease the missus, rather find something to do 🤣

We say a hearty Good Night to you guys my friend!


Thank you kindly!

Nice beach, surf and kite :) Seems like a good time !

Thank you and we always have a good time on the beach my friend.
Except of course when the storms rage here in the "Cape of Storms" lol.

One day riding the wave the next everything crashing down, only thing to do is get up and keep going, perhaps a bit of that very cold water would do the trick!

Not visiting as often as I had hoped, still battling along now waiting for booster to be installed due to extremely poor cellular connection. Have a wonderful weekend Stephen.

Such is life Lady Joan and all that we can do is to try to stay afloat.
A bit of that cold water would result in a comittee to be arranged to incestigate the cause hahaha.

I suppose with the lockdown, the installers are inundated with call outs and work, hopefully they will get around to you guys soon?

Hope that your weekend is also going well, apart from the battle with the IT.
