Friday Shoot Out - Water

Ahhhh, water. The essence of me. A fish, my friends! A lake is not big enough, it takes an ocean! I'm an ocean fish.
This is Rio Del Mar beach in Aptos, CA. It's a wonderful beach on the Monterey Bay. It's where we lived, took the dogs to run, and filled up on peace & sea air.

I realize that this is supposed to be mostly all pictures, but here we are in the middle of the desert now...and I've spent all week looking for water for the Shoot Out! This is a dry time of year for us, although we have had some clouds go through that spit a few drops overhead along with a bit of thunder. Not monsoon yet; I can't wait to show you monsoon!

I can show you pictures from last year's monsoon though!

After a couple of days of good rain in the summer, the waterfall starts running on the mountain!

And runs down the mountain... Then there's what happens when a good downpour hits the yard!That's the courtyard, flooded!

Hail on a nice summer afternoon.

Every once in a while, we'll get a bit of precipitation in the winter, but not much.

That's about it for the desert! Have a wonderful weekend!

Great photos! I was laughing at that 'flooded' photo - you can see the raindrops adding to it!

You have a beautiful Golden too.

no rules so if you want to post just one photo with a complete story or just a photo no words OR a doz photos with just a doz words is okay - you do with style and that counts.
