Lifeguard Station Demolition – Umhlanga Rocks, South Africa

23 Jul

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,

Walks In Life – Anilao Batangas, Philippines

Walks in Life

 
October 24, 2009 when my husband and i got married… October 24, 2010, our supposed to be first year anniversary, my grandfather died 2 days before our anniversary. Since i spent most of my childhood life with my grandfather, It was such a tragedy for me… Midnight, October 24, my husband’s grandmother died.. It was such an emotional day for both of us… My husband i are were both at lost… we had to part ways to be with our families… Because of the tragic turn of events, we were not able to celebrate our first year anniversary and worst, we had to part for a while…
 
The next year, October 2011, we once again did not celebrate our second year anniversary. It was the first year death anniversary of our grandparents… two years, happily married… But we never celebrated our life together… The next year… 2012, we did not wait for October again… We decided to celebrate our First, Second and Third Year Anniversary… April 2012, we went for a 4 days ultimate get-away… I will never forget this day of my married life…
 
 
This photo reminds me and my husband of the walk of our married life… Some tragedies may come but we need to move on with life… Taking every step slowly and sometimes taking a step ahead… We never know lies ahead of us…But we must always put in mind that in every step we take, we must always put God in the middle… As our faith will help us through…

Wharariki Beach, North West South Island, New Zealand

This is my foot on Wharariki beach, North West South Island, New Zealand. I was there with my beautiful wife on honeymoon for six months camping. It was epic. We have returned to our native England and miss New Zealand very much.
