Back on vacation. As the weather here is hotter then the island I chose a cooler shot..

Here are 3 children (not mine) that My daughter watched playing on the beach for quite sometime ... No sand buckets or wimpy shovels for them.. Nope just big, long, hard sticks... Oh and you should have seen them have a go at it! Well that was until a stray stick came in contact with some flesh and bone of another then it was OVER!

They did kept us entertained for quite some time! LOL

Being a Mom I do have to give my trio credit. One morning I was getting coffee and watched all 3 help Mom get 3 chairs from the walkway and dragged them down to the beach... Not one complaint was heard the whole time setting up camp for the day :)
Had to crop a lot of the BG out.. it was some beach chairs and garbage cans... not very eye pleasing...

I like this "panoramic" view.
Wonderful mood.


Love your composition on this one Tricia! Nice balance to the pic, they are facing inwards! HA! The little girl pointing the stick at the two boys is priceless! LOVE IT! Really good work, wish'n I was there!

Hi Tricia, I really like this scene of kids playing on the beach - great composition.

Hi Tricia
beautiful the concentracion of the kids.

Hi Tricia,

I really like this beach shot. The kids all in their white t-shirts, with sticks, and hats too.. The background boulders are really nice (not used to seeing those). The action of them playing, the waves, the sand color, all make for a pleasing composition.

thanks for sharing this "Island Postcard"! Lisa

Beau momant capté!
J'aime bien le forma non standard choisi pour cette prise.
Belle harmonie Bravo!

Hi Tricia.
Very nice photo with a lot of joy and action. Love the colour of the waves. Nice composition and frame.

"Wish I was there" kind of feeling I'm getting here.
Good work on removing the garbage and dragging the chairs as well as making a lovely picture!
The colour of the Caribbean Sea is gorgious!

Tricia, TFS,

The beach shot is great. The children look like they are having a great time, you caught them in action.

Aah wat een schattig plaatje! De golven heb je ook heel goed en helder op de foto gekregen! Mooie compositie en crop.
Goed gedaan!
