This isn’t really good bye, it’s ….

2009 12 03 098

Bloggers come, and bloggers go.  I have always felt a bit of regret, a loss when someone just stops blogging on their blog for whatever reason.  A why? A how come?

A Sibilant surf is finishing up it’s run, there will still be my other blogs, blu oom, 

and Muddy Boot Dreams.

For some reason I did not configure this blog properly when I started it, and I just don’t have the time right now to properly post, so I have decided to let it wash out to the sea.

I am not going to delete this blog, I like the idea of it hovering over the surf out there on the web, maybe someone will come across it, and enjoy the photos.

So this isn’t really goodbye, it’s see you on another blog another day.

Many thanks to everyone who followed, and left comments. I did appreciate it.

Gone fishin…..summer break

2010 07 12_0491

I don’t hit the beach very much in the summer months, it’s just too crowded for my liking.  

And so I have decided to take the rest of the summer off from Sibilant Surf.  Thanks to everyone who so kindly reads, and comments.  Look for me when the weather is cooler, and the beach not so crowded.

I will still be posting on Muddy Boot Dreams, and Bluoom.

I had the beach almost all to myself this morning. 

Just me and a few feathered friends.  Beautiful to watch them soar on the wind.

Sunny Daze

Oh the joys of warm sunny days at the beach when you were a child.

Responsible for absolutely nothing but sandcastles, and crabs.

Tranquility – and a good place to visit.


Royal Hudson Torch Relay Day1

Although this is a photo from early February of this year, the beach still beckons.  If you are in the neighborhood, make sure you put a visit on your list.

The weather, frothy, with a touch of sun



I’ve been deep in the archives cleaning up that overloaded hard drive of mine. 

Blurry eyed, and seeing double, but I am finding some fun shots. 

This must be from a winter storm, reminds me of a weatherman saying “Yes, today the weather will be frothy, with a touch of sun.”

The far side of the Ocean


2010 05 14 004-1

You know us homebody kind of bloggers, we don’t really like to leave our nests.  And some of us don’t like to go out in the evening, unless it is for a good cause. But I thought you might like to see White Rock beaches other half, the sunset.  I actually got myself off of the couch, and drove down to the beach to catch this the other night. 

It was well worth it.

This post is for Connie, at the The Far Side Of Fifty. 

It’s always nice to have you drop by to say hello, and see if there is a new post. Although lately there hasn’t really been a new one.

Geographically we may not be on opposite sides of the ocean, but blogging brings us so close, we could be neighbors.

And this post is also for all of you blog readers out there.  Thanks for visiting, whether or not you have to cross the ocean to do so.

A peaceful walk, a soothed soul.


2010 01 08 042-1

Got to wonder why we, [well, me!] put such silly restrictions on ourselves sometimes.

When I first started this blog, I made it too difficult to publish from, and many times I can’t even publish your comments the first time, because of the way I set it up.

Silly me, I’ve learned from my mistakes.  Changed as much as I can. And am learning to live with the rest of it.

Yes it is called the Sibilant Surf, and yes, it is supposed to be a Ocean photography blog.

But so much of where I live, here near the ocean, is estuary, and saltwater marsh.  [A partially enclosed coastal body of water].

I was being rather selective in which photos I was publishing.  But realistically,  how many shots of the sunrise do you want to see?   I generally am down at the beach during the mornings, not the evenings.  It’s too crowded, to expensive, [.75 cents per 15 minutes] and I don’t seem to have the time lately.

So I have opened up my options, lengthened my viewpoint, and relaxed my hold on what is correct.  I am happy with it, and I hope that you are happy with it also. 

I think that although it won’t be a regular posting, the tide has come in.  And look and see what treasures it has uncovered.
