love in the rain by the sea













do you ever have one of those days that you look around you and say i have everything right here that i could possibly ever want well i had one. saturday the temperature was in the sixties , humid, rainy. i knew that this day would be one of the last of it's kind this year and thought we should take the dogs to the ocean and let them swim. it poured all the way there and rained hard once we stepped out of the car but the second we saw sophie run along the waves and grace play in the sand we knew we had not made a mistake. we spent at least an hour and a half on the beach but it was only the last half hour that i felt it safe enough to bring out the camera (covered in a plastic bag). I have to tell you we were soaked but the sun was desperately trying to come out and as it peaked thru the clouds the light was incredible, then as it disappeared the whole sky changed to this beautiful misty rain with a glow i could not describe except to say it was clearly a reflection of what i was feeling inside..happy to have all of them and this moment.

your dogs are so gorgeous. a day by the sea must have been such a great treat for them, dogs at a beach always seem so happy. that and also in the snow...

Your heart spoke through those pictures in a magnificient way Nadia. We took the dogs to the beach the other day and as I was watching my husband play in the water with them, I felt my heart swell up and bursting.
Both Grace and Sophie are adorable!

Nadia, I think this might just be my favouritist favourite post of yours so far! And that's saying something because they're all pretty amazing. This though is perfection. The rainy beach setting, the beings that enrich your world - human and canine, the light in these images and the way you've captured it all, the feelings conveyed visually, and the way you've expressed your love and appreciation of it all in words too... Beautiful!

Your dogs are beautiful. I wish my dog liked the water, but she just hates it. I live at the coast, and it seems so sweet to take her to play in the waves, but she thinks it's torture. Sorry Abby Dog.
As always, such beautiful pictures.

oh how i love to visit the beach on days like this...cold days, rainy days, not your typical beach days. your images are lovely and yes, I do have those days when I just look around and feel thankful and so happy. :)

These images just radiate joy and pure, unadulterated bliss. I feel infinitely more at peace just by looking at them!
