Cannon Beach in August

Banner3333333threehearts2Well, our annual family vacation to Cannon Beach was a wonderful retreat and much needed.  We had fun doing some things we haven’t tried before and we had the pleasure of witnessing a wedding right out front of our condo on the beach.

The sunsets were amazing and as usual the Pacific Ocean was beautiful!  I took lots of pictures to share with you 🙂  Our first night started off with Matthew and I picking up Fultano’s Pizza for dinner – MMMMMM Good!IMG_4398  Matthew and I did some window shopping while waiting for dinner…

IMG_4465  WOW!  The sunsets were like that every night – dramatic and beautiful.

IMG_4469  We took walks together and alone with God.

IMG_4557  The waves and the sand looked like sprinkled gold while we watched “The Preacher” that married the happy couple, feed the seagulls in the air.


IMG_4562We watched the seagulls fly…IMG_4574   and those big, cool birds flowing so gracefully with the waves…


IMG_4578  Everyone played and enjoyed the warmth of the sun late into the evenings…

IMG_4580  Matthew, Naomi and I tried out the fun bikes – and yes, they are fun!  But lots of work too 🙂



IMG_4674The sky was beautiful during the day and glowed with the oranges of the sunset  and finally the moon in the night.
It was as perfect as Cannon Beach always is.

IMG_4675  I found myself looking into the sky often, thinking that those would be the perfect clouds to rise up and meet Jesus on…

God’s Beautiful Earth



We set out again to travel the earth, well, the small portion we live on anyway.  We had to stay within the confines of a few days’ travel, but that’s okay, since God’s beautiful earth is so amazing, wherever you are.

Even though it’s early November, the skies were blue and it was a gorgeous day for traveling. Our destiny was south, so we headed north to get there. That’s how we always do it. A trip that would only take 3 hours at the most, always ends up being 6 to 12 hours for us. There’s just too much to see on this beautiful earth and we don’t want to miss it.


There is a gorgeous lake along the way.  We are not sure of the name, but we always look forward to seeing it.  The mountains surround it and it is always calm, just like glass.


Ruby Beach was as beautiful as she always is. Pebbles glistening in the sunshine and the waves rolling in from the Pacific Ocean.


Just me and my Hon- and the November sun – with the Love of God through a kiss and a hug.  I love this life!
