Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

A Big Thanks and a Woof-Woof To Wally and Delores

If you've read my blog much at all, you're aware of my love for the beach. Our Pacific Northwest beaches, as you can see, are rugged and beautiful...full of driftwood, seaweed and grass, rocks and shell. And though in our travels, Kelly and I have been to some of the most beautiful beaches on the planet; including Waikiki, Kailua, Paradise Island, Oahu's North Shore (Bonzai Pipeline), Cannon, Cocoa Beach, and Shi-Shi--some of my fondest memories have been made at Birch Bay; right here in Whatcom County. As a child we went there often...we picnicked, gathered shells, dug clams, skipped rocks and swam in it's salty waters. I still go there to play... to weep... to pray... and to relax.

 The wonderful thing about our Northwest beaches, is that there is always something interesting to look at.
 The water.
 Sea life.

Today we had a wonderful day at Birch Bay. Some very kind friends; actually family by marriage; have a home at the Bay. They graciously consented to let us take our dog Koda to their beach for a swim. It's a perfect place for our lab mix to work off some energy.

What a glorious day!

We had a great time...and so did Koda. So Wally and Delores;  Kelly and I want to say thanks...and a great big Woof Woof from the Koda dog!

I love rugged beaches. Beautiful shots of Birch Bay. Glad Koda could frolic at the beach and burn off some energy!
