Remembering Moments – Cannon Beach, Oregon

30 Jul

I took these with my iPhone then edited in VSCO Cam (also available for android users).  In the silhouette photos I learned that I couldn’t click at the moment my 12-year-old dancer jumped.  When I did that, I ended up missing her jumps since they happened pretty fast.  Instead, I clicked just a second before and that did it!  It’s all about timing.  It would have been easier if I had the DSLR with me but I didn’t bring it.  The family was trying to travel light since this was a road trip in the Camry.

Lifeguard Station Demolition – Umhlanga Rocks, South Africa

The lifeguard station on our main beach in Umhlanga Rocks is being demolished to make way for a more modern one. In the foreground, bathers are showering off the sand, after their day on the beach.

Nailed it! – Long Beach, Washington

23 Jul

My best friend Jasmine and I have been trying to do this dang picture for years now. For some reason it took us up until this year to nail it. At least, I think we nailed it. The ocean in the background was the cherry on top, in my opinion. I think the hardest part of doing this is the fact that we always try when nobody else is around, therefor we have to use a self timer. That in itself is extremely difficult to time correctly!

There is a magic about the sea. People are drawn to it. People want to love by it, swim in it, play in it, look at it. It is a living thing that is as unpredictable as a great stage actor. – Cecelia Ahern

World Cup Fever – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

11 Jul

No wonder Brazilians are great at soccer (futebol), they start early and on the beach, which is much harder than on grass. This kid was already delighting onlookers with impressive shooting skills.

D-Day – Normandy, France

8 Jul

D-Day – Normandy, France


While my blog often focuses on visits to magnificent churches, buildings, and tea destinations, our desire to travel has been inspired by world history. With World War II as one area of interest, my friend Dorene and I visited the Normandy beaches a few weeks after the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Beginning with the powerful experience of seeing the museum, memorial, and graves at the American Cemetery, we then followed the path down to Omaha Beach. This descent brings to mind haunting images of servicemen trudging up the terrain in the midst of battle and the many who did not survive.


The cool and windy day left me unwilling to remove my shoes and socks, but Dorene, who shares her interest in World War II with her father, not only walked barefoot in the sand, but also lingered at the water’s edge, communing with one of the sites where the world changed 70 years ago.

Near Utah Beach is the village of Ste Mère Église. In the early hours of June 6, 1944, paratroopers were dropped here and at other inland areas in part to secure roads and bridges before the assault on the beaches. Along with using a dummy to recreate the famous moment when John Steele’s parachute got caught on one of the spires, the church in Ste Mère Église commemorates D-Day with two stained glass windows. A 16-year-old boy, who was 14 when the paratroopers arrived, designed this one.

The death toll during the next several months was high for Normandy’s civilians (20,000+). Yet 70 years later, the ever-present tributes to D-Day speak to the meaning of liberation.

Thank you for considering my submission.

Warm regards,
