September Pictures - Each moment of the year has its own beauty, a picture which was never before and shall never be seen again. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown,
for going out, I found, was really going in.
-John Muir

Here, on the beach, I escape everything worrisome, petty, & mundane.  In the late afternoon, as the waning fall sun begins it's slide, yellow and orange light wash over my "Sanibel-stooping" body as I pick up shark's teeth and shells.  It's actually the Englewood squat because after all I'm not on Sanibel and sadly  I am not on Manasota Key either due to the red tide algae bloom.

  The red tide seems to be waning to the south of Sarasota but on Manasota Key and to the north up to Nokomis Beach there are lots of dead fish washed up on the beach.  The irritation from the airborne algae is still causing beachgoers to hack & sneeze.  Click on the Mote Marine link on my sidebar for the latest conditions on your local Florida beaches.

Sounds of the wind or sounds of the sea
make me happy just to be.
-June Polis

Lose yourself in nature and find peace.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth
find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
-Rachel Carson

The happiest man is he who learns from nature the lesson of worship.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson


  1. I love each of your quotes and your lovely photos! I'll copy the quotes in my journal tonight. We spent the week on the beach. It wasn't a shell seeker's delight...but it was the ocean and I felt that same feeling of rejuvenation. (I'll have some pics up tomorrow) Sweet hugs!

  2. Gorgeoous photos Kaybe. If you tell me you took those with your your iphone I am running out and upgrading mine!! Hope to find some peace at the beach this week.

  3. Thank you - just beautiful - both the images and words!

  4. We're wearing coats and hats up here already. Your shots of the beach look SO nice and relaxing.

  5. Such beautiful pictures!! and quotes. :)

  6. Ahhhhhh! Beautiful! I took some great beach pics this weekend, too....and have some of a heron! I love to out there surrounded by nature, seeing and smelling the sea. No red tide where we were :)
    Thanks for the Englewood beach views! Beautiful!

  7. Great quotes paired with great shots...a good way to spend time when red tide keeps you from the beach.

  8. Pictures & quotes are so beautiful, Karen! Wish I could be there right know... Thanks for your get-well wishes, your pics are the best medicine ;-)

  9. Beautiful photos and great quotes. You blend the two like a strangler fig to a cabbage palm.
