Picture Perfect...extravagance

  extravagance
  1. The quality of being extravagant.
  2. Immoderate expense or display.
  3. Something extravagant.

My extravagance, the sea.  I love it.  And I always end up in the water. Clothes and all. I did this just this week, as you can see from my avatar and back ground. My friends and family use the words weird, strange, and a few others, along with extravagant. LOL

I love the feel of the sea.  I always feel like I'm free to just be me there.  I laugh, dance, play, just do whatever I feel like at the moment.

Once when I was at the beach with my friends, SGOTM, I watched the moon as we walked down the beach.  It just seemed to be following us.  Glowing across the water.  My friend Jean just looked at me and said, " Go ahead, just don't go too far".  I was off.  Playing in the sea, under the moonlight.  No worries, no cares.....just dancing with the sea.

  16. While it's a nice idea in theory, the seas around this area can be very cold even in summer. Good shot :-))

  25. I have the sea on three sides of me but it's too darn cold to go running into right now. And it doesn't get much warmer. Interesting take on the theme.
    Thanks for your visit.

  32. lol - thanks for the visit -- I gave Cokes up twice, once to lose weight (insufficient change just took my joy away) and once because I was buying the caffiene propaganda (that's when I discovered my true 2nd fav is plain water) so now i just say it's my vice of choice!
