Running with Shadows!

My favorite part of summer is a trip to the beach.  I taught summer school this year, so my school year was longer, and all I could think of was...ahhh...the ocean.  So, on the last day of summer school, my kids came to help out and 10 minutes after saying good-bye to the last little 1st grader - we took off!!

I love taking beach shots of my kids.  Today I'm hooking up with Hey Harriet for Shadowshot Sunday!

Here are my kids and I at the Carmel Beach in California.  It's a gorgeous stretch of cool, white sand.  It's also a very inviting place for dogs - notice the little doggy paw prints!

It's usually overcast and foggy in the summertime, but we picked a beautiful day for a visit!

Hope you've been able to get away this summer!  I'd love to hear about your favorite beach!

Thanks for visiting today - and don't forget to check out the other lovely "Shadowshots" with Hey Harriet!


  1. Marvelous shadow shots for the day! I do love the beach and the one at Carmel is beautiful! Looks as though everyone is having a great time and that's the best part! Hope your weekend is going well, Cathy! Enjoy!


  2. Why, I'd recognise you and your kids anywhere--as long as I saw your shadows! :-)


    Imagine a shadow could talk
    In whisper or rumble or squawk;
    Just what would it say
    To make you go, “Hey!
    You’re just a chip off the old block!”?

    Shadows abound here and here

  3. Carmel Beach is a very beautiful beach and you had sunshine...yeah! Wonderful shadows you've captured. Hope you enjoy your well deserved vacation!

  4. Magical summer days at the beach. The best time of the season.

    My shadow this week is of a horn cleat [what you use to tie up a boat at the dock]


    Hope your weekend has treated you well.

  5. Lovely summery beach shadows! I can't wait until winter is over here and I can enjoy the warm weather again. I miss the beach :)

  6. Summer beach shadows -- they make me feel the sand between my toes and the warm, or maybe hot, sun on my back. Thank you!
    May I have two favorite beaches? Any spot on Lake Michigan along the Third Coast with its mile of sand dunes and Miner's River Beach on Lake Superior.

  7. Me thinks one of those shadows might be longer than yours.

    My favorite beach? Cayucos - without a doubt. Morro Bay runs a close second.

  8. Beautiful shadowy photos!

    My shadows, hope you can visit and see. Have a great week ahead!

  9. I wish I could have been on the beach with you!! I also enjoyed your previous post about all things bacon!!
