Impressions in the Sand

May weather is always unexpected and every changing.   Leaving PA and traveling south I encountered ever changing weather; from rain to fog to crystal clear skies.     It felt like a breath of fresh air as I crossed into the land of freedom. I have always played it safe, but this truly challenged me.   I…

Lines in Nature

Another day into the woods as spring opens around me.   We run through our days without acknowledging what is happening around us.  Today as I stepped forward into the woods I was struck by contrast of the wood to greens.  The growth of spring has exploded around me with buds and baby leaves surrounding me….

Maggie @ the Beach

I love watching children play in the sand.   The freedom of exploration and movement, the delight in their senses well the same can be said for a dog at the beach. Everything is exciting.   The sand, rocks and water all create a delicious field of adventures.   Catch a wiff of a passing dog, remnants of…

Wanderpup @ the beach!

Here’s a dog who thinks she is a person.   There is never a day that you can get out of the house without her running to the door. I can remember my kids always wanting to go for a ride ~ well my kids are grown and gone, Maggie now races me to the door!…

Avalon in February

Life is full of road trips and the winds took me a beach in New Jersey.   The sky was clear and the winds calm for this time of year. The area is usually full of hustle and bustle in season but this day it was empty.   The temperature was just a bit too cold for…

Fall @ the lake

The beauty of nature surrounds us, we just need to take the time to breathe and take it in.    There is a magical place not far from home that has a balance of water, trails and tranquility that soothes my soul.      On a glorious morning in mid-October, the sun is peaking through…

Natural Beauty

The water has a natural attraction for me and when you add the beauty of a horse on the beach.   His calm presence almost if posing for pictures was breathtaking. As the day came to an end and this majestic creature was walking up the beach.     He was not bothered by my camera, not…

Rocks and Waves

I am so at peace with the ocean.   When you add the element of rocks or in this case boulders my heart sings.  Challenging  to climb and find the top with no one saying STOP!       I could sit on top of the monster wall – silently watching the waves crash.  The fine mist…

2nd Chances

Its not every day we get a second chance.   These two beautiful souls found each other and chose  to take a leap of faith. Love is alive.   Surrounded by family and friends at sunset by the sea, they said “I DO”.   A connection of the heart is something we all strive for and they found…

Beach friends

Little do we acknowledge the presence of those animals that are always at the beach.    These creatures are beautiful when capturing there essence. The beautiful white creature is elegant, calm and ever present.   It followed me that morning.   I perched myself on the grass and it approached.   Within three feet of…

Rugged and Relaxed

Needing the break from the hustle and bustle of life retreating to a place of sun and sand in December gives the mind and body a chance to rejuvenate. The weather was 85 degrees, the water temperature was low 70’s ~ perfect for an escape.    Sandmen adorned the beach and the sea gulls were…

Cambridge

Cambridge is a little town in Maryland.   Its beautiful with the boats at the dock but the sea was rough. Love exploring, seeing nature pure and simple.    Water has no boundaries and when the seas get rough, the water finds it own path. And the ducks thoroughly loved this weather!
