Douglas Falls

Many of you know that I am taking a photography class.

Hubby and I took a drive to one of our favorite places, so that I could practice and catch up on homework.  We drove to nearby Douglas Falls Grange Park State Park.

My daughter, daughter-in-law, and niece are all beautiful girls interested in photography (and are becoming excellent photographers) and wanted to see what I was working on.

So this post is for them.

I was working on photographing water with different shutter speeds.  Here are the results:

More Vacation – Dungeness Wildlife Recreation Area and Refuge

I am back to the day job, but behind in posting vacation pictures. 

How would you like to take a late afternoon stroll here?


We are strolling along the bluffs.


It is a long way down!


A beautiful sunset in a magical place!


When the kids were young, we enjoyed camping at Dungeness Wildlife Recreation Area and Refuge.  This evening, we simply enjoyed our stroll, but in the past, we have taken the time to hike, look for crabs and other beach treasures, and walk out to the lighthouse on the spit. 

There is much here to fall in love with!

Marriage Enrichment Retreat

What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne


The older I get, the less time I want to spend with the part of the human race
that didn’t marry me.  ~Robert Brault


Love seems the swiftest but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century. ~Mark Twain


No internet, no cell, no tv; no distracting electronic gadgets whatsoever.

Just simple, fabulous quiet.

Hubby and I attended a marriage enrichment campout with several couples.  We had seminars and meals and chats together.

And lots of beautiful serenity.

We watched sunsets.

I stitched a little.  And read a little.

And watched the ripples in the water.

And watched the trees grow.

And now I am in email jail.

Was it worth it?

I did not want to come home.

Mt. Rainier Photos

“Pleasure is the flower that passes; remembrance, the lasting perfume. ” ~Jean de Boufflers

Hubby and I recently repainted our living room and the walls are looking a bit bare.  So we thought it would be fun to put up our favorite photos from our many hiking/camping trips to Mt. Rainier.

I’ve been busy editing and ordering prints that will soon be decorating our walls.

Enjoy the show!
