Beach Boys and the Pier in December

He is going out with his surf board and looking for the great waves


If everybody had an ocean
Across the U.S.A.
Then everybody'd be surfin'
Like South Carolina-i-a
You'd seem 'em wearing their baggies
Huarachi sandals too
A bushy bushy blonde hairdo
Surfin' U.S.A.

Read the full lyrics of the Beach Boy's song here


Playing ball at the beach on a sunny December the 18th afternoon....


There are a lot of activities going on...


Waiting for the big catch


Always have a look back to the scene: Folly Beach is so pleasant also in winter time!

After the heat of Sudan and now the cold of Switzerland, I should go and look for a place with nice, warm and sandy beaches.

Merry Christmas to David and you.

Anna said...

It has been another great year my friend. All the best to you and your family.

THANK YOU!!! Michigan is an icebox right now.

Happy Holidays, dear friend. :D

Was the shot captioned "Playing ball at the beach on a sunny December the 18th afternoon...." taken on the same day/same time as the image "Under theMy Wordless Sunday #45"? I DO LOVE THIS TYPE OF IMAGE!!

It's great to see the angles and your consideration of elements... for example, the "shelter" at the end of the pier is perfectly framed - one foot to the left and the roof may have been cropped off!

Great beach shots also - That's one massive beach you have to enjoy!

Susanne49 said...

Hi Manz,

yes, our beach is long and beautiful! I love it in winter time the best. In summer you cannot find a nice place in the sand,there are too many tourists.

Thanks for the nice comment, very much appreciated!
