Whoa! I was about to step on this camouflaged dead fish.

"Mom, look I found this sea shell", says my daughter

A gorgeous sunset!

A gorgeous sunset!

Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone.

Its time to go home, Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone.

These pictures were taken at Sanibel island in December of 2011.

This is my entry for the weekly photo challenge: SEA

Whenever I visit the sea, I think of it as a Supreme, Enigmatic Abyss. In the pictures, the dead fish that were washed ashore were due to sudden drop in night-time temperatures according to local authorities.

Something to ponder: Each species plays a unique role  in maintaining the fine balance of the marine ecosystem right down to the itsy-bitsy plankton. So, are we playing our part?

With Labor day gone, summer is officially over in the United States. Did you visit a river, a lake or sea this summer in your part of the world? Did you see any unusual activity, fun or otherwise? I would love to hear from you in the comments below. Thanks for stopping by.

For those of you who would like to see some very unique ocean pictures please visit my recently written blog post:

  1. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing.
    We had unseasonably cool water temps at the Jersey shore earlier in the summer. And then there have been almost 80 dead dolphins that have been found along the New Jersey shore this past summer. Scientists have not found a definite reason.
