Never Turn Your Back On A Wave!

01102017_thirdwavetooktheshell_aopSO LONG, SHELL!

This is the last photo ever to be taken of this pretty little shell.

Can you see the 2nd wave in the background? Well, behind it was an even bigger 3rd wave. In a matter of about 15 seconds, I was knee-deep in a powerful salt water surge, wobbling to stay on my feet, while the shell was quickly confiscated by the sea.

I politely asked the waves to give it back, but alas, that shell was long gone, baby!

I know, I know: Never Turn Your Back On A Wave.

Oh well, at least this farewell-to-the-shell photo turned out nice. 🙂

Happy Monday, friends. ♥

Rescue Heroes Save The Day!

One of the many benefits of staying in Port Aransas is that when someone finds an injured marine bird or marine turtle, there is a non-profit organization called the ARK that will help.

This pelican appeared to have a broken wing, and was fighting against the rising tide trying to carrying him out to sea.

I quickly called Animal Rehabilitation Keep (ARK) at UT Marine Science Institute, and within 20 minutes, ARK founder Tony Amos himself arrived on the scene.

I believe this was his son who made the brave capture of the wounded pelican.

The ARK does so much good work on Mustang Island & St. Jo’s, and I’m proud that a portion of my beach photography sales from Amy Oakley Photography is donated to support ARK & Friends of the ARK.
