Sayabashi Bridge

This beautiful wooden bridge with a roof and arched like a sword, crosses the Kanakura River which flows through the town of Kotohira, Japan.

Tucked in for the Night

Amelia Island Low tide provided a peaceful, secure setting for this fishing boat docked on Amelia Island.  The pelicans were my companions as we watched as the sun set.

She’s Got it Right!

Some people just know how to stay cool and comfortable while checking email on the beach.  I just wanted to continue my early morning walk!  I like the sound of the surf more than the ring-tones and message notifications on my phone.

I wanted to linger for hours . . .

Unalaska or Dutch Harbor?

Packed Up for the Night

Unalaska or Dutch Harbor, Alaska is an enigma!  I loved this rugged fishing village on the coasts of both Unalaska and Amaknak Islands, connected by a bridge called “the Bridge to the Other Side”.  The island and the town are both named Unalaska. There is a body of water called Dutch Harbor and many people refer to the town as Dutch Harbor or simply Dutch. Technically, there is no town named Dutch Harbor.  Have I confused you???

 

Neighborhood Surprise

You never know what you’ll encounter during a walk in the neighborhood!

Sea Gulls

Sea Gulls

They’re not always boisterous and annoying.  When they’re absent from the beach, I miss their squawks, their begging for food and I miss seeing their synchronized flights over the ocean.  And then they rest quietly on the sand in a giant group, all facing in the same direction.  I like that; but it doesn’t last long.
