Photo Challenge: Wanderlust

 

Who doesn’t get wanderlust over Santorini?  I was lucky enough to go there last fall.  I don’t know that it’s my favorite place on Earth, but it was certainly a special trip nonetheless.  The winding streets, the steep cliffs, the amazing blue sea, the white stone buildings, the volcanic beaches, and the crowds during the day with the cruise ships passing through.

Photo Challenge: Earth

Of course I could have chosen a beautiful sunset or a charming landscape, but because tomorrow is Earth Day, here is a photo of the harm we do to the most beautiful Earth. 


This photo is from Belize just outside a luxurious resort and shows what life looks like on the other side of the fence where  sand isn’t being raked three times a day as if it were a much-loved Zen garden. 

I wish we combed and cared for every grain of sand like the Zen gardens.  They feel so false when this lay just outside.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

This week’s challenge is a photo of serenity the state of being calm, peaceful and untroubled.

Looking out at the beach from a hammock while listening to the palm trees in the breeze and sipping on rum and coke…is my idea of serenity. Dreaming of my next mid-winter tropical escape…

This week’s challenge is a photo of warmth.

The sea lions on Pier 39 in San Francisco warm themselves under sun while napping all snuggled together.  Although they do smell (more than a bit), I could delight in watching them for hours.
