A walk along Moonstone Beach near the little seaside town of Cambria—tucked in among the mountains of the Central California Coast—provided my husband and I with plenty of photo opportunities. Here is a picture of some seals resting amid the waves, which repeatedly crashed against the rocks. The way these animals seem so oblivious to the constant water spray reminded me of the verses in Psalms that I have attached to this picture.
It’s been a while since I’ve blogged! Life has been busy.
Because I have no new pictures to post, I decided to dig up photos from a trip in 2007 to my favorite place on earth, Yellowstone National Park. This park is loaded with geysers and hot springs of all sizes and colors. The one featured here is the Grand Prismatic, the largest hot spring in the United States.
Notice the hill behind it. In the summer of 2000, I joined two other girls and climbed this hill to get an aerial view of this colorful hot spring. Alas, this was before I had a digital camera and that picture is tucked away somewhere in a scrapbook.
But, the colors of the Grand Prismatic are still amazing, even from ground level!
A friend of mine posted Philippians 4:8 on FaceBook this week, and I just loved it! It’s perfect for today when so many things are happening so fast and it’s easy to get discouraged. Also, my husband and I have been reading through Philippians during the past few days and this verse jumped out at me, again! I had no choice but to pair it with my favorite hot spring.
Point San Luis Lighthouse near Avila Beach, California. This restored lighthouse can be reached either by trolley or guided hike. My husband and I chose the guided hike, along the Pecho Coast Trail, where the ocean was on our side for most of this 4-mile, round trip excursion. The water was a mixture of blue and green and was simply stunning, as it sparkled in the late morning sun. We were blessed to watch two dolphins playing in this water just below the first cliff we climbed. What an amazing way to spend our morning!
