My favorite downtown view

Image

When thinking about where I live, I have a few spots that visually really bring me peace. The church on Market with the huge stain glass flower, the view of the sunset from my backyard or of the moonrise from the marina. This one is also one of my favorites. It’s the view from the bridge nearest the yummy Corner Bakery.

We go this way when we take Noah to work, or when we are driving to visit Scott at the Wharf. It’s a lovely little spot to stop and take a snap. I’ve shared it here before but I felt this shot got a clearer image than the last one. Do you see why it’s easy to be at peace living here? I love it, and would love to stay for the rest of my life and to stop being a “come here” and start being a “stay here”. We will see, only time will tell.

I can see how God would look upon a sky like this and say “it is good”. Did you know however, that the one day He didn’t say “it is good” was the second day or “yom” when He separated the sky from the earth and the outer realm outside our atmosphere? Interesting little tidbit. Just call me the queen of useless information today.

As the sun goes down over the water.

The sky catches fire, and just around the corner I see a glimpse into eternity.

The darkness comes to eat the light. The water sits still.

Let’s walk to the beach

After being inside a large portion of the day because of rain and wind, things finally cleared up and the sun came out. It’s still blowing a good bit of wind, but it’s cooler and not humid so we are enjoying the windows wide open.

Jack and Sam joined me for a walk by the Marina and to the beach. DSC_0476 They really tried to convince me to swim with them. I declined but I assured them that I will swim with them tomorrow! DSC_0468 It’s fairly rare to see the waves crashing up on the bulkhead, it seems to do it quite a bit in the winter but only during storms during the summer time. At least, that’s my observation after a year of living here. DSC_0463 DSC_0461What did you do today?

Watching and waiting

Tonight my eyelids were heavy, they’ve been heavy since four this afternoon. I’m not sure why I’m so tired, maybe it’s the heat. We have a hurricane coming up our right/east and a cold front coming up our left/west. I lain in bed relaxing and listening to preaching, when Sam came in and asked me to come outside and watch the storm out across the water, he said the clouds were lighting up like crazy.

He was right! I’ve never had luck with photographing storms, and I am in no way claiming these as good, but they were the best of what I got. It is a pitch black night with a sliver of a moon covered by clouds, so I was surprised to get anything. I’m pleased! Lesson learned, take time with the kids, and take your camera!
