Waiting

Got up this morning at 5:50 to watch the sun grace us with its presence on another glorious day (pictures to follow later).

While leaving there is a store on the corner that has been there for years.  There is always an assortment of chairs on display, including this giant chair.

Throwback Thursday: OBX

Today officially marks 7 days away from the beginning of peace and relaxation.  I cannot wait!

Vacation will be in our usual location, Outer Banks, NC.  I have already begun reviewing some of the pictures from last year.  I will be able to see the sunrise again.

Here is one of my favorite pictures from last year.

WP Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds (2)

Dreams

For my second entry into this weeks WP Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds I am entering this lone Seagull that I have entitled “Dreams”.

When looking for a poem to go with my image, the very first poem that came up in my Google search was Dreams by Langston Hughes.  This is a coincidence as I named my image before I knew the poem.  So it was meant to be.

Hold Fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

WP Photo Challenge: Serenity

Serenity means peace, calm and untroubled.

Being at the beach is where I am the most at peace.   Watching the waves and tide come in is so relaxing.  It just washes my troubles away by allowing me to put most of them into perspective.

My grandson Arai also brings me peace (when he is not driving Mom-mom crazy). LOL

WP Photo Challenge: Minimalist

image

I took this photo while on vacation in Outer Banks,  NC (OBX), back in August of this year.

On one of my drives to nowhere,  I came across this little beach by one of the bridges that connect the island.

While exploding the area I came across these flip flops.   Some young lady (assuming) left then on the beach.

I belive that they are a good representation of this week’s theme, Minimalist

As always thanks for visiting and all comments welcome!

This photo was taken in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, August 2014 approximately 6:30am and I love it. I would use this as my Cover Art for all of my sunrise and sunset photos.

Roanoke Island, NC

Today is my last day here in Outer Banks.  Time to pack up and get ready for the 8-10 drive back to NJ with a 1 and 8-year-old (this is fun!).  I hope the traffic is light and we make it back in record time.

Since it is the last day I decided to take a ride and explore other parts of the Island.  I drove out to Roanoke Island.  Roanoke is where the first settlers landed way back in the late 1500’s.  (Click here for some history.) This was formerly part of Virginia.

I went to the William B. Umstead Memorial Bridge and there was some nice scenery just waiting to be photographed.

I like how the roots from this tree twist and intertwine with the next one. I wonder how old this tree was here before it died.

Another view of the tree.
