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.

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.

Cape Horn, Chile

Cape Horn

Cold, desolate and captivating!  We were awake before dawn to capture the sights of Cape Horn as we traversed the tip of the South American continent.

Twilight at the Marina

The stillness at the marina on Christmas Eve was captivating.  No wind, no boats, no footsteps; just the rightful residents paddling through the marina at sunset.  The scene left me breathless and thankful . . .

Crossroads at Dawn

Crossroads at Dawn-2

Standing on the beach at dawn is peaceful and reassuring.  I love how the “little fork in the road” leads to the horizon and beyond.  The choices and possibilities of a new day.

Green Lagoon of Lanzarote

Green Lagoon of Lanzarote

Lanzarote, Canary Islands
El Golfo and the Green Lagoon are among the most spectacular and bizarre landscape phenomenons I have ever experienced.  El Golfo is a volcanic crater flooded by seawater.  In the cove,  the sea water has become trapped in the form of a lake and turned a striking acidic green, due to the algae which lives there. The Green Lagoon contrasts with a black pebble beach and wind eroded cliffs and rock formations in the background.
