more beach birds

Not exactly sure of which ones, but I suspect these little guys are some sort of sandpiper.Seven_Devils-4714

A closer look…

I’m off for a “procedure” that I’m not looking forward to…. hope everything comes out alright. 😀

I thought how unpleasant it is to be locked out; and I thought how it is worse, perhaps, to be locked in.

    • The procedure itself is a piece of cake, it’s the prep the day before that’s the biggest pain in the butt! (Literally and figuratively speaking.) 😉

    • Thanks, LuAnn. All went well and I’m glad I don’t ever have to do it again. Same as with jury duty. Which brings up the question… what about jury duty for you vagabond folks?

      • So glad to hear all went well. As for jury duty, I have wondered that myself. So far, we have not been sent any notices. Not sure how that would be handled.

  1. Ah, I am glad the procedure went ok. We have inherited intestinal cancers that mean I have to have that done every 5 years now and dread it. The prep is also what I dislike most. Very unpleasant. It’s good when it’s over though and you can relax for a view years. Love those kelp bulbs. I think I’d enjoy popping them underfoot. It would bring back pleasurable childhood memories for me. Great pics, Gunta. 🙂

    • I must say that my previous procedure was 21 years ago and the prep was a bit worse than this current one. Regardless, I’m sorry you have to go through with it so often.

      I love the kelp bulbs, too and enjoy popping them. I’m glad they brought back some fun memories for you.

  2. Beautiful images as always. Hope nothing arises out of the procedure. I’ve got a colonoscopy & gastroscopy coming up late in August also. Seems they are doing these procedures more & more regularly these days, although I did have a blockage 18 months ago and 5 days in hospital which prompted my procedure this year.

    • I just had to colonoscopy and everything was fine. It’s the prep beforehand that makes me put off the procedure for the extra decade. They certainly do tend to recommend more frequent intervals these days. I can’t help but think it’s just a way for the medical people to make more money. (A bit cynical, I know!)

      • I had my first one in 2004 in response to my food intolerances to check for celiac disease etc and I’ll never forget the prep (as I was seriously unwell at the time). Don’t like having to get up early in the morning for it either. I’ll be awake all night worried I won’t hear my alarm clock to get up early, so will be exhausted before I even get to the hospital.

    • Those little shore birds are impossible to ID. The “procedure” was a routine look at my intestines that they recommend every ten years (of course I put it off for 21) but all is well… If I wait another 21 years, I’ll be 82 and it won’t be worth the bother…. 😀

      • I don’t know why I didn’t just say that to begin with, but I was a bit groggy this morning. Still not a morning person! Then again it DID get me some sympathy! 😀
