Sorry I am posting less frequently. I wish it was because I had gone fishing but no we are busy moving. As mentioned previously where we live is complicated and now we have decided to move back into our condo in Charlotte. However, we plan to continue to spend time at Seabrook as well. Once things settle down I’ll start posting regularly.
My wife asked for a sandy beach photo she can use as a print for a coffee table tray. I took several but none were just right. The most challenging request was to have the photo be mostly sand and only a little water or sky. While trying to satisfy her request I realized the horizon was what allowed my camera to auto focus. I need to study my camera settings to see what sort of autofocus options exist. I’m not interesting in manual focus but I am interested to see if I can shift the focus point from the center of frame to different locations.
Today’s photo shows the Pelican’s Nest restaurant and bar at the Beach Club on the Island. We are out of season so Pelican’s Nest is closed. However we bring take out, from the Osprey Cafe, and enjoy the view from the tables at Pelican’s Nest.
Today’s photo shows one small part of the beach club on the island. It is interesting that just outside the club you have more sand and you are closer to the waves. But what you get with the club is the bar (smile).
Also, you get two swimming pools, two restaurants, massage service, and towel service.
This is a common beach scene on the Island. This was taken as the tide was going out. The palm trees and building in the background is the beach club complete with two swimming pools, a wedding venue, beach chairs overlooking the ocean, and the Pelican’s Nest restaurant and bar.
We are headed back to Seabrook and look forward to walking on the beach. The sign shown is one of several which mark public access to the beach.
The CDC has advised that travel should not occur over Thanksgiving and to limit gathering to family living in the same house. So we have chosen to spend our holiday on the island with takeout turkey from a local deli. Just the two of use. It is our way to avoid a gathering.
