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…
Wave ripples in the 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.
Great photographs, thanks for sharing!
Thank you. It is hard not to get a good photo with the beauty one finds at the ocean’s edge.
I am sure your boys are much like mine and that you came home with half a carload of those rocks!
🙂 However did you know?
Sounds like just what I need now too. Beautiful!
The ocean for me is like a trip to a spa for some people. My idea of relaxation and regeneration.
What fun! I enjoyed looking at your photos.
Our dogs look so much alike! They are beautiful. 🙂
Thank you. Black labs are the cutest, aren’t they? 🙂
Such beautiful photos, and so glad Haley got to tag along.
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.
So beautiful — Your boys, pup, scenery and writing.
