This week, Cee has asked us for some pics showing sand and dirt. Here are a few that I’ve found to show you.
This one was taken in Morocco, where there was quite a lot of sand and dirt underfoot. These two guys obviously didn’t want to get their feet dirty.
I think this is a rather funny pic of me in Peru. It looks like a standoff between me and the local women. They took this opportunity to try to sell their wares, and were actually quite formidable, not taking no for an answer.
There was beautiful white sand in San Pedro, and also lots of bicycles.
A sand sculpture still under construction on my beach in Umhlanga Rocks, with an important hastily written message for passers-by.
It’s quite strange how people get the urge to dig when they get to the beach. I bet he’s not nearly as keen in the garden at home. 🙂
These white lions are well camouflaged against the sand and dirt of the South African Game Park.
This is my favourite way to see the sunrise, as a beautiful backdrop to the sand and the sea.

All so wonderful. I find the first two photos really interesting.
Thanks, Inga. Yes both these places were very different and interesting. 🙂
Now that’s the kind of dirt I like to dig my toe into. 😉 That white sand beach in San Pedro … Bow.
Me too, Rommel. The very best kind. 🙂
All fabulous photos for the challenge. You always have the most interesting photos. You’re eye see wonderful unforgetable memories. The subject doesn’t matter they’re all great.
Thanks so much for your lovely comment, Issy. 🙂 xx
A world of sand and dirt. Awesome!
Thanks, Gemma. 🙂
who knew sand and dirt could be so awesome… 😉
Thanks, Heather. Glad you enjoyed these. 🙂
Not afraid to dig the dirt – I dig your dirt!
Hahaha. Thanks, Col. 🙂
Great all of them! I like the beach best!
Thanks so much. 🙂
These are all great sand and dirt photos. I like the beach ones the best, but then I love the beach!! Thanks for playing!
Thanks so much, Cee. My pleasure. 🙂
Loved the photos. It’s ages since I visisted Umhlanga Rocks – seems like a lifetime ago.
Thanks, Sandra. You would probably find that it’s changed a lot since you were last there. 🙂
A wonderful set of photos. Loved your stand-off with the Peruvian women. It’s reminiscent of “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” 🙂
LOL. I like that, John. 🙂
great pictures, as always, Cynthia! thanks for yet another world tour! keep ’em coming. they are beautiful!
Thanks, so much, Lola. Sylvia 🙂
Thanks for the strolls on the sands … and the last one is my favorite.
Thanks s lot, Frank. 🙂
Splendid photos AD !
Can’t help feeling sorry for the donkey
Always love to see your beach shots in SA.
Me too, but I guess that poor donkey knows nothing other than being a beast of burden. 😦 My beach shots fill me with nostalgia when I’m not living close to one.
All of your photos are great ! … And your last one is breathtaking !! … So beautiful, and i totally agree about the way to see a sunrise … // Maria 🙂
Thank you so much, Maria. 🙂
LOL! Looks like you had quite a standoff there Sylvia. Great shots and selections hon. 😀 *hugs*
Thanks, Sonel. Glad you enjoyed. 🙂 Hug to you.
Great photos AD… love the sand castle art… seen quite a bit in Margate, some of these guys are absolute artists…
Thanks, bulldog. I also love to watch these sand sculptors at work. 🙂
Love the photos. I wonder……did the local woman manage to sell you anything…LOL
Thanks, Linda. Yes, they weren’t leaving without a sale. I bought two necklaces which I still have. 🙂
Hahaha it looks like those Peruvian women have you cornered!
That’s exactly how it felt as they advanced towards me. 🙂
Nice photos, Sylvia – re the top one: where I live now you would most likely see 5!! people on the donkey (or motorbike), father,mother (holding tiny Baby in arms), and 2 other children squatsched between parents!!!! What did you buy in Peru? 🙂
Thanks, Carina. I bought a couple of necklaces from these women, and some brightly coloured woven table mats, which I gave to my mom.
Wonderful photos, Sylvia! All of them perfect for the theme, and yet all so different.
Thanks, Naomi. Glad you enjoyed these. 🙂
Lovely pics one and all (agree with everyone about the one where you’re cornered in Peru)! I think I moved to the left coast just so I wouldn’t have to get up so early to see the sun kiss the horizon…. 😀
Thanks, Gunta. I also prefer a sunset to a sunrise, for the same reason. 😀
I love the feel, colour and texture of sand! A great post – as usual….

Thanks, Rebecca. Another very true quote. 🙂
All the beaches look very inviting. Love the shot of the one in San Pedro.
Thanks, Colline. 🙂
Those are nice “sand and dirt”…
Thanks so much, YC. 🙂
Great photos Ad!
Thanks, Georgia. 🙂
LOL on the 2nd photo!
Yes, it makes me chuckle every time I look at it. They had me right there, and there was no place to retreat to. 😀 I bought a couple of necklaces.
Fun photos all, Adin, especially the one about you vs. the local women. 🙂
Thanks, Imelda. 🙂
These are great! Loved the standoff!
Thanks, Suzanne. Where could I go? I was dead meat. 😀
