Life is Good

This hasn’t been a day filled with exciting adventure.  In the sense of activity, it’s been a rather ordinary day.  However, this day has been filled with something far more valuable and important – a sense of wellness, and of the incredible beauty and wonder of where we are, who we are, and our ability to recognize how special that all is.

What did we do? Figured out some financial matters, some travel matters and technical tidbits.  We went exploring and out for lunch.  Then we came home.  Now, in all that, let me see if I can convey, through our pictures, a little bit of the magic.

Starting with where we left off yesterday, going from sunset to moonrise:

To waves crashing on the rocks:

Our footprints as we walked together on the beach:

And discovered an unbroken sand dollar:

And watched a surfer catch a wave:

While we felt the wind blowing through the grass on the dunes:

And experienced the calm peace of the harbor:

Yes, it’s been a special day.  Thanks for joining us.

What lovely photos. Sometimes a less busy day can be the best. It really gives us fulltimers to stop for a while and smell the roses, or the sand dunes in your case! I hope you continue to enjoy the beautiful Oregon coast.

We feel the same way! Most days Randy & I look at one another and are amazed that we get to live this life. Every day isn't an exciting adventure, but it's our adventure and we are grateful for it!

Thanks for sharing your heart with us. :)
