Recapturing the peace

This place captivated me.......I am wanting to go back

The back of Phil's Fish a child at Christmas I discovered joyously the big wide ocean literally steps away.

Cat lover that I am, how could I not have captured the end of the walk we discovered one........

I caught this fellow in the early morning light from a distance. I couldn't figure out if he was studiously watching something, or dozing off in the warmth of the sun.....

After the dark night

I think God gives us this beauty in the morning because He knows it renews our hope.....

To get up and watch the sun color the it fill everything it touches with its glow

This one reminded me of a Raphaelite painting I've seen pictures of.......maybe a Cathedral ceiling somewhere in Florence.

God does good work doesn't He?

Bird Views

These brown pelicans flew, sometimes so close to the water I was sure they would get swallowed up in the waves....but they knew just how close to go

They were looking for food down below those waves.......

While these guys were looking just below the the waves retreated they would run around looking for air bubbles from the sand crabs that the sea had washed up.

Breakfast on the beach.....

I've looked at clouds

I've looked at clouds from both sides now.....

From up and down, and still somehow

It's cloud illusions i recall.
I really don't know clouds at all.......

Arizona Views

Tempe, around Mill Ave where all the college kids hang out

Bougainvillas love the fall here.......

So do the Saguaros.....they are like gentle giants.

A cat's eye view

Oh no, she is aiming that suspicious looking black thing at me again......

Must you do this during my nap time?

His foot is still relaxed.....

Okay, enough already. I am going back to sleep.
