Odd and Interesting Things

Last Saturday, in search of an owl
Wayne and I spent about an hour walking around
on the beach of the Saskatchewan Landing.
The water is very low and of course, still frozen.
But we did see some odd and interesting things!
Odd: One lone sandal sitting on top of the snow?
I can understand underneath, but not on top.   
Interesting: A split rock with
all it's pieces aligned.
Interesting: One lone leaf looking a bit like
a stingray swimming at the bottom of the water.
Odd: Is this a rock?
A bit of petrified wood?
I didn't touch it.
Interesting: Lots of pieces of wood weathered by
water, sand, wind and sun.
Odd: A boat sailing across
the prairie grasses.
Odd: A rock shaped like a skull.
Can you see it?
Interesting: A little rock shaped like a heart.
Odd: A piece of driftwood
looking a bit like an old dinosaur skeleton.
Interesting: A little yellow shovel
waiting for a wee hand to come and play with it.
Interesting: Wayne was walking ahead of me
and he appears to have left me a message.
Odd: Wayne still has some coffee left.
I would have thought it would be cold by now.  
Interesting:  I asked Wayne to take a photo of me
walking down the beach as I had
taken so many of him.
Odd:  Stanley!!!  I meant take a photo of
ALL of me walking down the beach!
Odd:  Where does Stanley's hair stop
and the white sky begin?
Odd: It appears neither one of us
knows where we are kissing.  That would be because
I had to photoshop our photos together
and our lips didn't line up.  ;)
We got a dump of snow yesterday with
predictions of more snow today.
It appears winter has not passed us by quite yet.

Have a cozy Sunday!

Dearest Catherine,
The weirdest is that one sandal... Where is it coming from? So out of place and even more so, out of SEASON..,
You had a special time and some very interesting photos to share!

Cat said...

Those are great pics!!! I love the heart shaped rock, I hope you kept it :-)

TexWisGirl said...

you're too funny! i'm guessing a dog carried that sandal around, then dropped it. :)

Christine said...

I understand that that snow is heading our way. Yuk :(
I hope you go back in Spring and dig that split rock out, it would be great in a flower bed. Imagine the moss that could grow from it. My writing muse is in a coma these days. I think it's called the Winter Blahs.
Have a Happy Sunday Catherine

Brian said...

Great photos! Thanks for taking us along with you!

The Smiths said...

Thanks for letting us tag along on your walk....It was fun and relaxing...You had some interesting finds but I love most that you two looked like you were having a ball just walking along seeing what there was to be seen....

Wonderful photos. V

Tracy said...

Cat-what a fun post...I loved it and well, Wayne was taking a photo of perhaps HIS favorite part of you...that is so funny. I love the heart shaped rock as well as the one that is split in 23 pieces...

S. Etole said...

Terrific walk on the beach. Thank you. It's snowing like buckets here today.

Susan said...

Some very odd and interesting things. Cute what your husband found interesting, he obviously thinks you have a cute rear end! :) I love the post, so cute and entertaining. You and your husband are so darn cute!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Lovely collection of photos, Catherine. Driftwood and odd stones usually catch my eye as well.

The butt shot--well, no hidden meaning in this, you understand, but your butt looks great, at least in jeans. So no wonder he took a shot. LOL.

BTW, you've changed your header photos. Or I've just noticed they're different. I think. :-)

Winter is back here too, sad to say. I had been pleased to see snowdrops and crocuses up a few days ago, but it's way too early for them.

I went to our City greenhouse this afternoon, though, for an early taste of Spring. Heavenly!

Catherine, what a fun and delightful post!! I so love the beach in any season and I won't say AGAIN to you how I feel about snow! :-) I hope you've had an enjoyable Sunday!!

Linens and Royals said...

Amazing photos, I loved them all. My favourite is the frozen water, wish my lake would freeze up like that. If it ever did I,m sure that would signal the end of the world.

Lin said...

I love little treasures like those you found here. Amazing what you see when you just slow down a bit to notice.

Stanley cracks me up. :P

Ann said...

You did find some odd and interesting things. Always a pleasure to walk on the beach.

BeadedTail said...

That was a fun outing with you and Stanley! I didn't find Stanley's photo of your tush odd but perfectly normal for a guy! You two are so cute!

Romance Reader said...

Loved your weird and intersting things and such lovely photos. Thanks for sharing!


LĂșcia said...

I'm glad you had a good time with Stanley in this beautiful place!
Did you bring the heart shaped rock home? :)

Linda R said...

I love seeing what you found on your walk.. So many cool items.. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Hugs, Linda

I love this post, Catherine. That last picture is truly awesome. I can feel the love between the two of you... LOVE it!!!!!

YES---we do see all sorts of things when we are out in nature --and paying attention... You captured some great pictures. YES---I see the skull. NEAT!!!!


Reena Walkling said...

That was fun to walk with you. My fave is that sailboat shot!

SweetMarie said...

This was a lot of fun! I enjoy walks like this. You two are so sweet! If I'm walking away from hubby and I turn around quickly to say something, I always catch him looking up from my butt! THH!

God's Little People said...

Well, hello girl!!! Yes, I'm back.
What a CUTE set of images - the lonely sandal made me smile (how mysterious is that!??). Your photoshop'ed image is really cute - I really do love your warm sense of humour. Wonderful images Catherine... oh, and I loved the images of Banjo and birdies. Beautiful.
Big hug,

Nancy Claeys said...

Wowie -- that was a strange ride. Great shots and such interesting objects. :)

SD ~ Dawning Inspiration said...

Stanley's shot cracks me up... (no pun intended)...

Fun and interesting walk. You two are too cute!

Tamago said...

Oh I love love love this post. You found lots of odd and interesting things. What a fun!!
One sandal on the top of snow is really odd...why not under and why just one?? The boat sailing across the grasses cracked me up! It is way too odd :-)
How sweet of your husband to leave such sweet message! You are so cute together :-)

The Purr Diaries said...

I love that you guys go searching for owls! :o)
The area you live in is so beautiful! x

Deborah said...

What a lovely day full of wonderful things to see ... and who could blame Stanley from taking that shot, that's one neat behind! :o)

Jen said...

Great photos! Love the one at the end (too cute ;o) I could spend hours wandering around the beach taking pictures. Oh wait! That's what I did do in the woods this weekend. *laugh*

Chatty Crone said...
