OK. Maybe I’m not being completely serious with a topic that sounds like it might just should be that way :-), but I couldn’t help myself.
Celebrating both International Peace Day and the last day of summer, Jeff and I headed to the beach knowing full well that we would have our pick of places to plop our chairs. The beach is nearly void of visitors this time of year, and me, being the – ah – introvert that I am, find it most relaxing when I can hear the waves brushing the shore, sans the hum of human beach goers. Far be it from me to begrudge people their holidays, nor do I wish to take fun-in-the-sun time away from anyone. I just like the space and serenity afforded me when the real estate is less occupied.
I am a solitary man, except I’m a woman. (huh?)
Apparently, I’m not alone in my need to be alone. There’s this good ol’ boy.
Those of you that know me, know Rocky, my long-haired German Shephard. Well, this is not him. But it could be his double. Except Rocky would not be sitting as peacefully in the sand. Or anywhere else for that matter. But that’s another story.
Thanks to Cheri Lucas for this week’s topic. There are a plethora of posts that have been submitted this week, as always. Worth looking into. For more on Solitary, click on the WordPress logo below.
Only my old girl sits that still. Looks like a great spot in a gorgeous place. LOVE the beach. 🙂
That it is, Angelia. 🙂
Thanks for visiting.
I love the dog, I am a doggy liker, and good picture as well. Nice take Gemma…;)
Wasn’t sure if it was right for the theme, but then I am often confused about that 😉

great image Gemma…love that doggie, well I love all doggies
I don’t even know that guy and I love him, so I know what you mean. 🙂
It sure does look like Rocky took a road trip! There’s no solitude like solitude at the beach. I love it.
Rocky would be chancing after ever gull and every wave, but not sitting still. You know that. But this guy is disciplined! Rocky is full of, how should I say it? Energy? 🙂

Rocky looks more than content, to be alone.:)
This is not my Rocky, but he could be his double. He’s almost as gorgeous, though. 😉
[ Smiles ] That is a cute dog!
Thanks. For the most part, they are all cute. For the most part… :-).
Excellent post for this week theme my friend 🙂
I’m like you. I find joy and solitude being close to the sea with less crowd as possible. Solitude is a gift that most of us find hard to capture . If we did, it does not last that long. Today is a perfect time reclaim that solitude…and a beach visit sounds just about right.
Making every attempt to hit the beach as much as I can before the cold rolls in. Even then, you just gotta bundle up – a lot! :-).
