Photo Hunters - Salty


Salty


I have two pictures today. I just could not resist! The first is obvious. A bowl of salty peanuts. Who can resist a bowl of salty goodness? I eat peanuts like they're going out of style.








The next one is one I took while visiting one of the many stretches of beautiful Texas coast land. I just so happened to see a bird and was able to take three consecutive shots of it, with the last one capturing it taking off in flight! Ahh, look at that lovely water. Can't you just taste the salt in the air?

Peanuts - yeah, yummy, provided it's only salt, with NO other spices. But the bird photo - it's a really great shot! Thanks for stopping by :)

That first pic makes me thirsty!!!
Being from Canada, my American geography is very shaky!! I am ashamed to admit that for years I thought Texas was landlocked. Not until I boarded a cruise ship in Galveston, then I realised!! :) From what I have seen, Texas is an amazing place.

Peanuts are always tempting, though it is a problem with my dental work these days. That ocean shot with the bird is just lovely!

Do those peanuts have other spices on them as well? I like cashews and almonds better but if you put honey with the salt or cinnamon and sugar with it... then, love the peanuts too.

I buy salty peanuts in 5lb cans at the grocery store. We love them, but I'm the one mostly eatting them, lol. That is great how you caught the bird in flight. Beautiful picture. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
