See Beautiful - July



When it starts to get hot here, the hot air from the desert sucks the cool air from the ocean inland in the mornings just after the sun comes up.  We used to call it fog, but now it's called the "marine layer."  I love how from above it looks like waves breaking on shore.  


Below is what was going on to my left as I was taking the pictures above with my iPhone.  Another kind of beauty - happy dogs!




It looks like Riley is sticking her tongue out at Otto.  She's got him wrapped around her paw!

This is a blog hop.  Show us the beauty!  Thanks, Sugar!

We love that 'marine layer'. It's cool. But happy dogs have to win every time when it comes to beautiful.

I love how it looks like the ocean is lapping at the flanks of that mountain. Those photos are incredible!

I also love seeing Otto looking soooo happy!

Early morning fog brings out something primitive in the soul...it is both beautiful and magical...as are happy dogs!

'Marine layer' is a bit dull, is think. In Aberdeen the coastal fog is called 'haar'.
Beautiful, anyway.
Toodle pip!

Oh you will not believe this, but yesterday I was out in the town and met a young lady and her ... ROTTWEILER... he was a big, beautiful boy and had been playing in the sea so was all wet and sand and keen to cuddle - and I came looking to see if you had posted lately. Nothing yesterday but here you are today!!!

These are beautiful pics indeed; here at Dunoon the 'haar' comes in regularly but I am always IN it, never above! Have a fantabulous weekend. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

Those are wonderful pictures!

The Boston Lady said...

Since I've moved here I've wondered why they call it the marine layer. It IS fog, isn't it? LOL. Love the happy dog picture! Ann

Marjie said...

Is fog supposed to be more amazing just because it has a fancy name? Looks like a great day for a walk, and Riley is having a great time taunting Otto!

Kirsten (peacefuldog) said...

So sweet! I love "marine layers" too.

animal lover, quilt lover said...

I am going to visit you and the others as long as i can!! BUT this old puter back again, b/c the lightening killed the good one, it will be faster I'll probably be gone

We like going for walks when the marine layer is there in the morning. We met a very nice Rottie named Ooshe. Not sure of the spelling but it means Bear we think in German. She really liked meand baby Louie.
