A new Thematic Photographic theme is posted for the week. For the next few days we are looking for happy subjects, which really isn't very difficult, and definitely fun!
For me the beach is a very happy place. I don't get to visit the ocean beaches very often, but when I do the camera is usually at the ready. Last February we were at Virginia Beach on a blustery day. The water was cold but this little boy was quick footed and stayed a step ahead of the waves. The dog was much braver and frolicked in the surf. He was fun to watch, going out to meet a wave then swimming and leaping as if he was trying to beat the wave to shore.
