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.

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.

The biggest super moon?

We had another Super Moon this month, and we’ve got one scheduled for next month as well. It’s a neighborhood thing to walk down to the marina, some folks with their evening beverages and me with my camera, to see what the moon is going to offer us. It was hazy in the distance and we joked that the moon didn’t get the memo that it was supposed to come out and SHINE.  It snuck up on us and by the time we saw it, it was exactly like this.

Sneaky moon.

We stood prepared with “Skin So Soft” on our skin to keep the gnats away, and waited. It slowly rose up and shone, getting brighter and brighter as each second went by. I took about 50 images, but I won’t bore you with vain repetition. I’ll just give you a nice, clean and bright shot.
Enjoy!

Let’s walk to the beach

Image

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?

Sunsets, flip flops, water, sky on fire

We’ve been in the house 5 days. We are still living out of our suitcases and that’s alright with us. As long as we’ve got our swimmers, a few dry towels and sunscreen the unpacking can wait.

My life, this life, my God who gave this to us. I’m blown away.

Sunset with Gazebo.

Scott had these new flip flops waiting for me since I arrived. Only shoe worn aside from running shoes.

I hope you enjoyed a visual peek into our evening. I’ll have more tomorrow!
