The beauty and majesty of this world I am surrounded by continually amazes me. This is Sombrio Beach, less than an hour north by car. Below is Witty’s Lagoon, within walking distance. Think I’ll go for another walk soon.

As the first wet day of fall rolls in I am tempted to look back on these glorious summer days when the fog rolled in but didn’t eclipse the sun (at least for too long). More pics here.

In Your Heart 1

Heart’s Desire
