It’s been pretty full on this week, busily wrapping up summer learning programs, then switching gears and attention to the swiftly approaching school start up. Why, the work is coming in waves…


Waves, you say? Oh look, below this paragraph is a clip of some waves! Yes, we see what you did there, PlaidCamper, well done. Thank you. The snippet of video was taken on our visit to South Beach a little while back. I’d tried and failed to capture the broad sweeping expanse in a photograph, the wonderful bowl of sand, ocean, sky, trees and distant mountains we could see from where we were sitting. I simply couldn’t capture it in a single snap, so shot the video instead.

Waves in sound and vision…

Having played it back a few times, I found I really liked how it captured the sound of the ocean, the steady roar of the sea. The waves were moderate, but the wind was quite calm – usually, all I hear when I take a video is the rustle or roar of the wind, and me clumsily clonking the microphone. On this clip the wave sounds are quite clear.

In other news, temperatures here took a tumble as the week went on, and we’ve even had some welcome rain, another sign the season is about to change. I’ve seen a couple of big bears along the grass verges the past few days. They look healthy and very intent on packing on some extra pounds before winter. I drove past a very impressive pile of purple bear scat yesterday, so the bears must be doing ok on the berry front. I decided against taking a picture. Or a video. I mean, as if I’d even think of doing that…

Seasonal delight

So there you are, a brief post this week including a brief clip of waves in sound and vision. And not including a photograph of purple bear poop. That could’ve been a good one. It was for the bear.

Thanks for reading and watching, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

  1. The ocean is composed of water,the majority of humans (all animals actually) is made of water and the majority of your beer is made of water as well.
    So being by a babbling brook or listening to the waves crashing is really a connection to ourselves.
    Water is a very unique force


  2. One summer I stayed at my boss’s place to relax from work and socialize with co-workers. She had a lot that was on the shores of Lake Ontario. Listening to the waves was great, and so pleasant to fall asleep to. I did not see the video until I commented and then, yes, I opened it and enjoyed the waves. thank you for that and as summer draws to a close, here’s to new beginnings.


    1. Yes, here’s to new beginnings, particularly the beginning of the end of this interminable pandemic. Have to hope that’s the case, and here’s wishing you well as we transition into the new season!


  3. Another round of storms just ended and it was wonderful to take a moment and enjoy the wonderful waves and video!! Purple is my favorite color and I’m very happy you chose not to share the berries! Another great sports weekend, Tottenham in first place and Roma is playing great! Hope you have a chance for a few extra days off before the new school year begins!


    1. Thank you! Definitely going through a purple patch on the verges and trails, being very careful where we step!
      Looks at Spurs go – can it be sustained? Nah, look at Everton go, clearly gearing up to make a sustained charge for the top. Ok, ok, we all know Man City will romp away with it by March, but might as well dream while it is early in the season. Could be worse – Arsenal, anyone? Ouch…
      Have a good week!

  4. Thanks for taking us along to the sea with you, pc. I really enjoyed the photos and the video was a great treat. The sound of the waves, the shimmering light and such a long expanse without a single human — dreamy. The beer looks delicious, and I really like the bottle cap design, oddly enough. Many thanks for this pleasant and serene visit.


    1. I’m always amazed (and delighted, in my people person mode) when we are at some of our local beaches in high season and find them empty of people – lucky timing mostly!
      The bottle cap is such an appealing little design – so happy you noticed it! And the beer is very good!
