Cee’s FFC: Sand and Dirt


This week, Cee has asked us for some pics showing sand and dirt.Β  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.

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. πŸ™‚

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.

  1. A wonderful set of photos. Loved your stand-off with the Peruvian women. It’s reminiscent of “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” πŸ™‚

  2. 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.

  3. 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 πŸ™‚

  4. LOL! Looks like you had quite a standoff there Sylvia. Great shots and selections hon. πŸ˜€ *hugs*

  5. 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? πŸ™‚

  6. 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…. πŸ˜€

  7. I love the feel, colour and texture of sand! A great post – as usual….

    • Yes, it makes me chuckle every time I look at it. They had me right there, and there was no place to retreat to. πŸ˜€ I bought a couple of necklaces.
