Carlin Dog Park in Jupiter Florida

It was my husbands Birthday and he said “Lets spend it with the kids And that’s exactly what we did! Initially we were going to rent a seaside bungalow, then thoughts with our dear friends up north, however time was of the essence, needed to coordinate with family ASAP!

This can be difficult due to work schedules and already knew my son was working this weekend; Erica and her boyfriend also working late and it was too last minute for Lisa and Lisa, Mom is fragile and can’t take the late nights (Bill loves to fish till the moon rises) and Peter and Kateri work all the time so ELENA HAS TO SHOW UP!!!

Elena, my daughter the Entrepreneur. . .”Guru”  brilliant child of ours, self employed and thankful she will meet us halfway!! My other children are in Ontario, therefore visits occur when it’s time to defrost!!!  So down the trail to the beach we go! Made a little video for those who like to watch the ocean

Love watching the dogs play in the surf, today would remember to bring the good camera and capture them while they romp and play.  This little guy ended up being my favorite, he was fearless watching over his human mom!

His sister was a lean Rottweiler and gosh she was a strong swimmer, all so playful and you could see they were thoroughly enjoying themselves.

If you never visited would encourage you to do so. It’s so peaceful; just take I95 Jupiter Exit, go east as far as you can go, till it ends at A1A and bare right, travel 4 miles, passing the Reef club and high rises, past Carlin Park entrance and you’ll hit a barren patch. This is where you’ll see the Sea Grapes and get this, NO METERED PARKING. A magical place indeed.

The day was incredible, the surf totally wild and the moments captured would be remembered for a lifetime

and it just may take me that long to remove the sand from my body

I think my grandson got a kick out of watching the waves toss his Granny around!

It reminds me of what my dad use to say; “Surfs up Snots Out”  He would have enjoyed this day with us. It’s almost three years to the day since he left us.

 So serene, this day presented us with so many things to be thankful for!

The gorgeous weather, invigorating surf, friendly dogs, natures wonders, gentle breeze and warm sun… yes

Even a caught meal, blue fish, 4lbs 22 inches long!

Thank you Father, for my awesome family, for Your wonderful creations, visitations seen and unseen, for the knowing just how much You love us Yes Father thank you for Your Grace, which sustains us, refuels us, GRANTS US SUCH JOY!!!

Oh Father to this be the Glory and Honor and Praise, forever more of on Earth as it is in Heaven..yes to this, the simple pure unadulterated Nature of YOU! Thank you for making us fishers of men, thank you for letting me recognize Your Nature in my Spouse, a miracle indeed Thank you for Honoring his request, opening up yet another portal of Grace, oh Boundless Almighty One, a humble bow and tears flowing thank you.

About Brenda

"Brenda adores the birds. She is enchanted with their grace, their beauty. It was the birds and being out among them that gave her the peace she so needed and forged a new passion She uses a camera to capture those incredible moments, to savor them and share them with others. For her the camera was freedom. Brenda spent her life healing others, and dealing with incredible pain and despair. The world of birds and nature and photography was what she turned to in order to see the beautiful side of the world" -Eric Curtis Cummings
