Good Day to you all at ePz.

Thank you for all your great comments, messages and votes following yesterdays upload of my Squirrel.

Todays image was captured yesterday during a brief and blustery outing to the beach.

I hope that you all have a great day, for me well I shall just take the day as it comes.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

The sea looks pretty wild and rough, Nathan, but at least the sun was shining on you, more than I can say it is doing here Smile A fine capture, have a good day. Carol

A short extract from 'Sea Fever' for you this morning Nathan, which goes well with your captivating image. Have a good day - John. Smile

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
