Now what could this surprise possibly be at the beach?
He appeared from behind the mountain range and oh, I can just dream about me and my camera up there to take photos of the scenes below.
You can see Part 1. Here
We were strolling along the beach and totally unexpectedly this gift appeared in the sky. No need for him to drop down, as I got him comfortably on the zoom.
Come and have a look.
This was where I got the shot in the picture above and ever so gracefully he came in to fly along the beach.
This is a Powered Parachute (PPC) and I have the details about it at the end of this post.
I was surprised, but I bet the little Pied Kingfisher was more surprised about this monster size bird flying over his fishing spot.
This is what it looked like at the back as he came past.
So I thought that this was the last that I would see of him as he flew off.
But no, he returned from his journey along the beach. This time much higher and further out.
So lovely to see the cloud columns behind him and it has to be magical to be up there.
Finally he went back over the mountain range and he was gone.
So yeah, being down at the ocean has many benefits such as breathing the raw and salty sea air and the smell of the ocean. A unique delight to ones mind, soul and senses.
A life at the sea reminds me of life as it was meant to be, unfettered and untamed by the power in the water.
Uncontrollable in it's own power that even mankind's inventions such as harbors and "protected" bays cannot control, as when a storm is up, the sea simply storms all over it.
Such a power is what each of us can only dream of, but in my mind it is the serenity of the sea when it's in a good mood that soothes my soul.
Don't forget to also watch Part 3.
Here's a teaser and I will post it tomorrow.
We hope that you have enjoyed this post as much as I did in my time out there.
