Stinging Nettles a.k.a. Jelly fish that hurt you

Image

This has been a GREAT summer, super mild temperatures and NO stinging nettles, at least not in the water that we swim in. I took these shots farther inland, at the Wharf. Aren’t the pretty little devils?
Yeah, their sting is THAT bad.

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.

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!
