Merry colours

Christmas Eve…

A song of rainbow colours as the sun sets

At three in the afternoon.

What better way to celebrate than by taking a swim

(If you’re a dog)?

  4. I have a human friend who dips herself in the ocean even in winter too. Me – the idea would never even occur! Love the colours in your photo but I think I’ll stay on the beach, thanks.

  42. Oscar reminds me of those people in the Polar Bear Club who swim in frigid waters for FUN! It looks like he’s enjoying the sunset before he dives. Since the dock has no snow, I’m wondering if it snowed there yet?
