and fear of the future.”

Otis is so cute!

Great, thoughtful quote about being a foreigner. And Charlotte Bronte's is excellent also.

Lovely clouds.

I hope today will be happy for you, Cloudia! Aloha.

Love the dog's approach to flopping onto the beach. I don't regret the past, I just remember the good times too much....like that amazing Sexy September Sunset. Stunning! Mahalo, DrumMajor

Say hello for me to Mr Otis. Otis is a familiar name - there is an elevator company. But Mr Otis really elevated my mood! :-)

Quotes - leaves one pondering...

I really need to take the Oursler quote to heart.
I do exactly what he says not to do.

Ash said...

Lovely photos, as always!

Hope you are well, Cloudia. Love the Fulton - I'm sure he said that with me in mind. Ha!

Lovely name for a dog. Oh yes, Cloudia, how well I remember the song!
I thought Otis was a spotted dog until I realised it was sand.

Not only does Otis not regret, he seems to exult in the sun and waves.

Hattie said...

What a happy dog!I love running on the beach with a dog, as I did in Oregon. But the Big Island beaches ban dogs, besides which I have no dog right now.

Filip and Kristel said...

hm that can not be good so much sand on his face.

Greetings,
Filip

Jolly!

Thanks, each of YOU :)

Oh for sure, when I grow up I still want to be just like Otis! If I met Otis, I'd give him a big hug. Gosh he's cute.

I love Stevenson's quote. Isn't that so true?

Is that sand on the dog or is that his coloring?
