This Isn't the Desert! by onewing

This Isn't the Desert!

I am a bit late posting today because a friend has been here for the afternoon.

As there are no cinemas open at the moment we have been having 'movie afternoons' at home.

I recorded the movie Florence Foster Jenkins a couple of weeks ago from the TV on our DVD recorder and this afternoon we watched it. Enjoyed the movie, both funny and sad.

Thanks for all your lovely comments and favs on yesterday's Out of Africa photo. Here are the same camels paddling through the ocean.

I will catch up with your photos later this evening as I am just about to get dinner ready now.
An interesting and refreshing shot. It makes me want to be there

This has to be quite unique! And such good focus! fav

I like the reflections in the water on the strand.
September 6th, 2020  
Ooh ! wonderful -- I can not see enough of your camels in a trail across the sands - this time on their return journey - perhaps !! A super shot - love the blue of the sea , the crests of the waves and the reflection of the camels , adorable and a big fav :)

Lovely perspective, horizontal layers and detail Babs:)

I've been telling my son and daughter-in-law about these camels. They live in Sydney. Interesting shot!

Such a beautiful capture & reflections.

Great capture, love the reflections. Fav.
September 6th, 2020  
Just wonderful Babs, big fav.
September 6th, 2020  
All lined up. Super capture. I guess the fact that only a few are carrying passengers is a sign of the time we find ourselves in at the moment.
September 6th, 2020  
There are always 12. How fun that they are in the water! You won't see that here ;)

@ethelperry @30pics4jackiesdiamond @maggiemae @casablanca @beryl @pcoulson @happysnaps @annied @kjarn @sangwann @gosia @pusspup @pamknowler @pdulis @gijsje @pattyblue Thanks, it is lovely to see the camels back at the beach.

@lilh I am sure your son would love a trip up here when lockdown permits. Anna Bay is about 200 km north of Sydney.

@dutchothotmailcom You don't expect camels to have sea legs do you, ha ha

@salza This was taken last Monday and it was the first ride of the day at 10 am so that would account for only six people on the camels. I am sure later rides would have been much busier. They do have a constant stream of visitors.

@ingrid01 Not always 12, it depends on the time of year and the weather. Sometimes there are only 6 and other times 9 but as the camels have only just returned to the beach since lockdown I suppose they all need their exercise.

Like how the camels are all in a line! Really nice shot
September 6th, 2020  
Lots of nice lines in this shot
September 6th, 2020

Wonderful capture.

An amazing sight, we only get donkeys on the beach here!
September 6th, 2020  
Never thought I'd see camels having a paddle!

@onewing Babs, this is such a great shot! Love it!
September 7th, 2020  
Such an unusual scene.................Love the line up of camels!

I love your camel shots. This one is fantastic.

@cmp @k9photo @linnypinny @fishers @mittens @ludwigsdiana @seattlite @milaniet @loweygrace @craftymeg @happypat @samae @santina @mave @carole_sandford @elisasaeter @pyrrhula @radiogirl @louannwarren @elatedpixie Thanks. I am so glad the camels have returned to Birubi, I missed them during lockdown.

@francesc I used to love donkey rides on the beach in the UK when I was a child. We do see donkeys here but only in donkey sanctuaries these days. The rides on beaches are more exotic now I think.

@olivetreeann I've ridden a camel in Israel too. Great fun.
September 7th, 2020  
I just love this scene, with the wonderful line of camels but also the unexpectedness of it. Great storytelling.
September 7th, 2020  
Love the camels! Great shot!
September 7th, 2020  
Great shot Babs. I thought it was Broome at first. Well done to get all those camels out and about like that.
September 7th, 2020  
@taffy I wondered what the camels must have been thinking as they were paddling through the water too.

@edorreandresen I love them too.

@golftragic Yes Marnie tell people it is at Broome we don 't want too many tourists here mid Covid. Of course, you know where the beach is. Keep it to yourself, ha ha.
September 7th, 2020  
another great
September 7th, 2020  
What a fun, fun picture. It certainly makes one stop and look again. Have you ridden them before?
September 7th, 2020  
Instant fav.
September 7th, 2020  
@stownsend Yes I have ridden them a few times over the years whenever my grandchildren visit.
