Simple Sunday – Weekend at Kalaloch

This was the weekend.  Every year we go and when it is over, we find ourselves planning for the next time.

This was Haley’s first trip to Kalaloch, and I suspect, her first trip to the ocean.  She loved running on the beach and even climbing the driftwood.

She did not appreciate the wetness of the water, however preferring to stay far away from the ocean’s edge.  Not very Black Lab of her if you ask me.

There was lots of sand…

We found a treasure trove of flat rocks, perfect for skipping…

And the sunset.  We only got to take in one, for the sun set behind thick misting gray clouds on our second night.

It was amazing.  It was humbling.  It was recharging.

The ocean is my place.  I feel grounded when I stand by its shores.  My emotions are raw, my reflections deep as the view of forever presents itself before my eyes.

      Haley had a GREAT time. Even though she is not a water dog, she loved running on the sand and sniffing all the great smells on the rocks and driftwood.
