Angel Kisses!

Friendships
I have no clue, as to who these two women are! I do know that it was a joy watching them collecting shells, while strolling the beach, deep in conversation, seemingly not a care in the world, oblivious to my instrument of capture.
Are they just friends or sisters or sisters and friends? Why were they dressed alike or did they even know they were dressed alike? Twins, maybe? I loved the hats and their not so perfect silhouettes as they passed us by. "A nostalgic photo of days gone by," I thought. 
 Like the gentle rhythm of waves, friends wash in and out of our lives. They bathe us with kindness and understanding, some last a lifetime and some maybe not. True friends are the grains of sand that form a foundation, cementing our being. 
They are sent to us in our time of need giving us new perspective, when all seems bleak. A new chapter begins and  angels kisses have been sent our way! 
Viewing Boca Grande Pass, from Gasparilla, Florida, helped me reflect on friendships old and new. For granted, I shall never, ever, take my friends!

Perfect capture of these ladies walking, makes me wonder what conversations they were having and what awesome finds they were gathering along the beach?

Awesome photos, I did think the top one a greeting card at first...
I think they are twins. They are dressed identically it seems. Did you see their faces?

yes, to all you said about friendships! What makes life go round!

We're dressed in black because it makes out bottom look smaller!
Lovely composition and tones.

These are so beautiful!! You captured a great moment here. I could see this on a Hallmark card. The color of the water is spectacular as well.

Perhaps the water and white sand is the magical formula that draws us to linger in thought or take a stroll.

Beautiful!!!

What a lovely and thoughtful meditation on friendship Rosemary! Collecting shells on a beach is the most marvellous pastime. I value friends even more now that I am older.
