A Word A Week Photograph Challenge – Run

Posted by Jody on March 11, 2014

“All the rivers run into the sea,
Yet the sea is not full;
To the place from which the rivers come,
There they return again.”

~ Ecclesiastes

“Land-based discharges of human-made debris comprise the largest source of marine debris in oceans world-wide (nearly 80%). The Plastic Debris, Rivers to Sea Project seeks to minimize the land-based discharges of marine debris. Just like ocean-based marine debris, land-based discharges of human-made debris are comprised mostly of plastics.”

Can you come out and play?

Posted by Jody on February 27, 2013

Play time at McClures Beach, Point Reyes National Seashore

McClures Beach

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in,

where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike.”

~ John Muir, The Yosemite (1912)

Greg and I came across this  little pink shovel in the sands of McClures Beach at Point Reyes National Seashore. Not one other soul was in sight on this lovely, peaceful morning.

A Word A Week Photo Challenge – Smile

Posted by Jody on January 29, 2013

Smile!

Elisa’s great big smile!

On this bright and sunny day Elisa and I were relaxing at Fort DeRussy Beach Park which is located on a lovely, relatively uncrowded stretch of Waikiki Beach (Oahu, Hawaii). Fort DeRussy Beach Park is a public, grassy area with plenty of shaded picnic tables. It was a great spot to set a spell and thoroughly enjoy our fresh & delicious pineapple fruit boats along with amazing views of the wide sandy beach and sparkling Pacific Ocean. ~Smiles all around!~

One of the must-haves for every member of our family on any beach trip is a big floppy sun hat (for the guys: this translates to a manly wide brimmed hat). Elisa always seems to do this best!!

What is a must-have on your list for a fun day at the beach?

A Word a Week Photo Challenge – Cloud

Just Another Morning in Paradise

Morning in Paradise, Waikiki Beach

Many folks who visit the Hawaiian island of Oahu just can’t wait to see the much ballyhooed Waikiki sunsets. And, yes, Waikiki’s sunsets really are worth the wait. But we morning people get to begin the day in paradise with another one of Mother Nature’s most unique and beautiful spectacles: the sunrise over Diamondhead. Sunrises on Waikiki Beach come with the extra bonus of having a peaceful, uncrowded shoreline almost entirely to yourself.
