I am Still Here

Since my summer break ended last August 10, my posting here had slowed down terribly. But I am happy that at least I can still manage to write something after a very tired brain :) Despite my busy schedule, life continues to be great, thinking positively.
Watch Out Fish, Egret is Here
I am still here, I still have time to walk to the beach after a long day before the day ends or at the weekend. I still have time to search for birds around while I pass the lagoon on my way to the beach.
Egret, Looking Out for Something to Feed?
Diverse Bird Species @ The Lagoon
( heron, flying pelican, grebes)
I still have some time to wait for the fish giving me a surprise mighty jump!
Jumping Fish @ Lagoon
Though vacation has long been over, but I still can manage to release the day's stresses and join the birds in their party.
Partying Birds
And as I get closer to the beach, I feel like the birds in the lagoon are inviting me to join them, but sadly, there area is restricted, where not anyone can trespass. The lagoon is for them only, and for other wildlife!
Resting Gulls
But then, some of them are too social, they also want to join us at the beach :)
Egret Trying to Find Fish :)
I still take some time to swim and help the birds look for fish :) . Yesterday was a great one, saw a lot of fishes. I still have the time to happily take my board, and go out to enjoy some rides. 
Surfer Riding The Wave
( I don't surf, I boogie ride or body surf )
Flock of Pelicans Approaching
Despite my busy schedule, despite having too little time to make my presence at The Joys of Simple Life, I am still here, finding the time to enjoy the sea, the sand,
Sandy Squirrel :)
and the sun!

Riding more waves before we finally say goodbye to summer.
Happy Labor Day Weekend, everyone!

  16. Ride as many waves as you can. Have fun to the last moment of summer is gone. This is what summer is all about.

    That little fishy was a great surprise.

  17. At least you can body surf. I don't know how to. I think surfing can be a dangerous sport isn't?

    I saw egrets when I visited Sandakan (East Malaysia) in April this year. Beautiful birds.

  18. Beth, you have an award to pick up in my blog. Hope you'll like it :) I know you're kinda busy, so you are free to just take the award minus the paper works...hahaha!

  19. Your picture of the lagoon with the birds looks so beautiful and relaxing. And the squirrel with all the spots is so cute, and the sunset colors are marvelous, wow!
