@Art Monkey: Thanks, Art Monkey. :^)

Nice shot Kathe, the family and dog seems to be enjoying the sea side and the sand equally as much as you enjoyed lying down there and shooting them.. ;-) Good one pal.

@Rahul: Thanks, Rahul. Actually, the girl in black is my daughter. :^) The others are some people we just happened to meet that day on the beach -- grandparents with their grandson and dog. And, believe it or not, that's not a sea or ocean. It's Lake Superior (too cold yet for swimming).

Wonderful candid image of a beautiful area - well done Kathe! Excellent!

Nice photo, when my husband was growing up they often visited relatives in the UP of Michigan. To force themselves to swim in Lake Superior, they'd cover themselves with wet sand so they had to go in and wash it off!

@bookbabie: *chuckling* Yes, it definitely takes a brave soul (and nerves of steel, I think) to voluntarily swim in Lake Superior. I don't know how I managed to practically live in that cold water so much when I was a kid. I can barely stand to dip a toe into it anymore.
