PSF - Whatcha looking at?

Welcome to this weeks addition of Photo Story Friday.

I was so excited when Cecily asked me to co-host with her this week because Photo Story Friday was one of the first meme's I ever participated in! So if you haven't participated before jump on in.....the water is warm (despite what the follow pictures might suggest).

On with the show!

While the peeps whip out their camera's and snap shots of the stormy seas.

(Give us a break.....we don't see weather very often.)


The seagulls stare at us and wonder what in the heck we are doing..............

hanging out at the beach without food for them to steal!

Ever since I saw the movie "Finding Nemo" I can't look at a seagull without imagining them saying, "mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine."

I love those photos but I am not sure if I would walk along that brige while the waves are so high

Oz Girl said...

Wow, I'm in awe at how big those waves are in comparison to the pier. Breathtaking. I'm sure it's even more impressive standing there on the beach as you hear the waves roar!

Love the seagulls... and the seagull narration. Very funny! :-D

Cecily R said...

It makes me laugh that you say you don't see weather very often rather than weather like this. I guess things are pretty consistent in your neck of the woods. :)

I totally agree with you on seagulls! Those birds should thank the makers of Finding Nemo. They made them into a MUCH more likable bird with far more personality than they probably deserve.

Your pics, as always, are fantastic.

Lauren said...

Those last two pics of the seagulls are hilarious!!

And those waves...incredible!!

Raise Them Up said...

Wow! I loved that third picture! But the Nemo thing had me giggling. Thanks for that. :)

I think I agree with Wayne about staying clear of that bridge.

Emily said...

Wow...those are quite some waves!

Jen said...

Wow, those are some waves!

Robyn said...

Great shots.
I had to laugh at the mine mine mine.

Kelli @ writing the waves said...

Wowzers! Those are quite the waves! I'm still smiling about the "mine, mine, mine." haha! Love Finding Nemo!

Mom24 said...

Your pictures are so beautiful! Makes me miss the beach. *sigh*

Chris said...

I could handle "weather" if it only dropped by occasionally.

I'm so glad to see you co-hosting this week. This was the meme that launched me as a blogger, I have a great affection for it, and for the friends I've met through it -- including you!

I love those seagulls.

Jenners said...

I think those waves are worth looking at. Congrats on your debut as an official hostess! : )

Krystyn said...

That's one crazy intense storm 'a comin'! You really captured the waves.

lisaschaos said...

lol. Those are some waves! I would have been out there too! Funny gulls!

Momisodes said...

Wow. Those really are some serious waves.

Is that Mission Beach? I think I recall that Cafe at the end of the pier.

Angela said...

Love the first wave shot! And I think they say "mine mine mine" too!

Casey's trio said...

Ha! We've been enjoying our own stormy weather in our hood! Crazy waves huh?

Elaine A. said...

Woah, those are some major waves! Love the seagull who talks. hee hee...

~Melody @ 6 Feet Over~ said...

Holy crap! Those are some waves!!

Gorgeous (and funny) photos!

~melody~

blueviolet said...

I could marry you for those pictures. Bam, they're good!

cat said...

Oh the sea, the sea - I'd love to be there right now. Great pictures.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Hey, Michelle. I enjoyed this about your weather. I have to say it never occurred to me that you don't have "weather very often."

Steph said...

That's weather! Goodness!

Kelly Deneen said...

Beautiful shots, but those waves scare the crap out of me!! Mine, mine, mine, mine, mine! bwahaha!

Killlashandra said...

Actually I think all birds just think mine mine mine when they see anything that even resembles food. ;) People take pictures of the rain here so I don't blame you for photographing stormy weather one bit.

Ryanne said...

I so hear the mine mine mine in my head, and then I hear it escape my mouth. There is a bit of a disconnect at times and I don't realize that others might find that weird! Great pictures of the stormy seas.

Heather @ Not a DIY Life said...

Great pictures! I love the raw power in the crashing waves. I'm such a beach bum - one of my favorite places in the whole world.

Thanks for co-hosting and for sharing!

Misola said...

Great photos here on your blog. I had to laugh about your comment to the seagulls 'mine, mine, mine' ... I'm sure they are always thinking that when they find something to eat. Here at the german coast they are really greedy.
I like the idea of Photo Story Friday. Maybe I'll join it, too!
Hugs, maike

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

Congrats on co-hosting!
Those are some big waves! I love how you captured the people capturing the waves.

Alicia said...

Michele!! Those are all awesome pictures!!!!!!

Mama Zen said...

That first shot is amazing! So much power!

Run DMT said...

Those pictures are AMAZING! I say the same to seagulls! LOL

Sorry I'm here late, but I am thrilled to be participating this week! Come visit me! :-)

Genny said...

Michelle,

I've never joined in for this, but I need to! I've always loved these posts. Cecily's photos are awesome too--like yours.

Happy Friday, and I look forward to hopefully having you join in for Talkin About Thursdays next week.

Genny

Barbara Manatee said...

wow...that's amazing. I've never seen anything like that (in real life..not just in photos).

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you enjoyed cohosting!

American in Norway said...

Beautiful photos! Thanks for popping by.

The Blue Zoo said...

I always think "mine, mine, mine" too!

Honey Mommy said...

I love that picture of the seagulls the best! I always think of them saying mine too.. but then again I don't see them very often!

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

Wow those are some big waves! And I agree about seagulls. And I can't see a clown fish without counting to see how many stripes he has. Three?! Oh that must be Marlin!

Amanda D said...

I came over from Cecily's blog. Love the pictures of the stormy weather. It's looks like a photographer's dream!

I've looked around here and I'm sure I'll be back. I love all your pictures!

Heidi said...

Beautiful pictures of something with such great force! I can't believe that one wave, it's huge! I love the "mine" thing. I swear that's what they are thinking!
Great story this week. I'm slowly working my way up the list this week, but I don't think I'm going to make it all the way through like I usually do. Thanks for stopping by to visit!

CC said...

your weather has been nuts! I'd be taking pics soon. I hope everyone was safe (sometimes ocean gawkers end up getting sucked to sea!!!)

Momma@Live. Laugh. Pull your hair out said...

I would definitely be one of those people taking pics considering I never see the ocean!!!

Baby Herzog times two said...

I heard you guys were getting a ton of bad weather. So crazy!!!

The Blonde Duck said...

I think the same thing--mine, mine, mine!

Live.Love.Eat said...

I often say that line from the movie, especially when my son isn't sharing. Those waves are narley dude.

angie said...

SO cool that you were the co-host with Cecily, whom I LOVE. Of course it had to be the one week I didn't participate though. :)

LOVE your shots.

Lindsay said...

Man - those waves are ginormous! :-) And seriously I LOL about the "mine mine mine mine" comment - I say that all the time around here when the kids are being whiney...and then we all laugh. :-)

RhondaLue said...

I think my kids are related to seagulls because they say that all of the time too! MINE MINE MINE!

lol, AWESOME PHOTOS!

scrappysue said...

Jessie said...

Just checking out photos when I saw the pigeon with a bubble over his head talking :) Love it!
