Beach Bum Bob

Whitney Beach on Longboat Key AKA Beer Can Island

For my birthday Bob and  I went to our favorite beach, a short 10 miles from home.. Make that a not so short but 23 minute  10 mile drive.. to Beer Can Island...

 for past post on Beer Can Island Click Here Scroll down, the label takes you to this post first, others are under it.


Bob loves the water, he headed straight out and laid down to float..




After nearly 3 dozen shots (guess what, they all looked just like these) taken my MS... Bob came out of the water and we headed down to the wooded area...


See The Look? I get that every time I aim the camera at him, just like our dogs, he hates my camera.


We walked down to the island part and he said I can't go any further because _________ to me and waded out to watch the schools of fish as they swam around the tree stumps..

. I had to walk alone....leaving him watching fish. I will let you in on the story tomorrow.

I really don't know why he wouldn't go further. My husband would never let me shoot and post pictures of him! Glad you had a nice time at the beach.

Rose said...

Oh, so I went and looked at all the pics at the other posts...still haven't a clue! But enjoyed looking at them.

Glad you went to the beach and out to lunch for your birthday. I'm thinking it was a great day! I think I love the water just like Bob. I could live in the water. These pics are great. You are so good with the camera. Jim says he wishes he was there, too. Can't wait to find out what the rest of the story is!

Looks like it was a gorgeous day for the beach. Sounds like a nice birthday! Bob and Baby both give you that look. lol :)

I just left a birthday greeting on your birthday post, which was lovely. Going back in time, so special. As is this post. I think I would feel right at home on Beer Can Island. And in that water.

Beer Can Island...now there is an interesting name. I get that look a lot too when the camera is in hand.

It looks like a lovely way to celebrate your birthday.
I always look forward to "the rest of the story".

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I have seen that same look more than a few times! Looks like a nice day and nice way to spend your birthday.

Deb said...

My hubby gives me that same look...so sometimes I have to do a little dance...or make funny faces...then he will flash his handsome smile...glad you had fun on your Birthday...

Ginny said...

O.K., I am really curious now!!! WHAT was going on? YES, I see that look! Had he not known you were snapping, or did he tolerate it because of your birthday? Too bad, he makes a beautiful and classic sight in the blue water with his beautiful hair.

Angela said...

I didn't realize you are that close to the beach! If it wasn't a 2 day drive to get to Florida I would drive down to walk with you and take pictures of Bob! roflol He would just die with two of us crazies taking pictures of him! hahaha

Blackberry Lane said...

Bob and Baby really do have the "look." If looks could kill!

Ann said...

Well at least you only get that look when you're taking pictures of Bob. All the pictures I have of Wade he's got his middle finger sticking up.

LC said...

I always enjoy your visits to Beer Can Island.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Chatty Crone said...

I would be mad at you too if you took that many pictures of me at the beach in a bathing suit! LOLOLOLOL no wonder he liked that way.

The beach looked beautiful and a nice day for your birthday!

what a great way to spend a birthday! Even with THE LOOK they are all great pictures.

George said...

I'm sure you use 'Beach Bum' as a term of endearment. I really like the picture of Bob giving you 'The Look'.

Cranberry Morning said...

Nice way to celebrate your birthday! I like the photo of just the head and the toes. No wonder he's named 'Bob.' :-) (a little joke there.)
Have a great weekend, you two!

Eva Ason said...

Yes that look says it all doesn't it? What a great way to celebrate your birthday :)

Mersad said...

I love how the sunlight catches the trees on the beach in the first shot. This is really a very photogenic beach! A really great way to celebrate!

He should be happy you have such a super hobby. But I suppose there might be moments to suit him and leave the camera behind so that only he is it. Your love for a camera is cometition for him maybe? Hehe
