March winds on the Sanibel Island Causeway

© Copyright 2008 Tink *~*~*

On Wednesday, i showed you a calm, peaceful sunset as viewed from a Sanibel Island causeway beach. Here’s what that same beach looks like when March blows in like a lion – complete with haiku!

After seeing friends,
I stop along the causeway
beaches, reluctant

to leave the island
just yet. The punishing wind
rips through pines and palms.

Whitecaps advance and
break in rapid succession
on the sandy shore.

I get my shots and
quickly get back in the car,
bones profoundly chilled.

  1. Those are nice, Tink. I think I was there for a minute, it reminded me of being on the causeway to Key West. Come up here, it is chilly again for a couple of days. I think it is headed your way.
    Happy Sky Looking, I have a picture of our little lake today.

  2. I would give anything to be on a beach right now, but instead I’m stuck in Ohio where the weather cannot decide if it wants to stay warm or get colder!

  3. Ths skies are beautiful, a cloudless day not necessarily the best sky. The Gulf offers lots of nautical clouds to make the sky interesting. And whitecaps on the Gulf – I don’t know if that’s common. On LI Sound, you never see them…

  4. I remember when we lived in FL and people would come for a visit in the wintertime. They always wanted to go the beach-I would tell them it was freezing but they would want to go anyways, most times I would just wait in the car until they were throughly frozen.

    great photos & haiku

  5. Great post, tink! It must be scary when the wind whips up like that on an island…

    Also The Irish Spring commercial – I think the idea is to shower with Irish spring, put on the green underpants (which Irish Spring may or may not send to you) and for the rest of the day you smell like Irish Spring a soap that has a very strong scent… Look u0p Irish Spring on the web and see that there is a lot of discussion about the scent… HA!

  6. Sorry to be visiting so late, but I’ve been ill and haven’t done much of anything for a week or so. I’m doing what I can to catch up today. I do love the way you’ve shared your lovely photos with haiku this week.
    Hugs and blessings,
