A Photo of the Week Challenge:

This view is one of my favorites. It was taken August 14, 2014 while on vacation in Outer Bank, NC.

My father and I would get up about 5:30am every morning (this is the only time I get up that early) to watch the sunrise.

On that lucky day I was able to catch this shot.

We need to be reminded sometimes that a sunrise last but a few minutes. But its beauty can burn in our hearts eternally.“– R. A. Salvatore

Wave Conqueror

My family vacation started Saturday and this year I decided to be adventurous and bring my grandson, Arai. Having a 4-year-old in a 7 hour car ride is enough to drive most people insane.  Somehow we both managed to survive and made it safely to OBX, Outer Banks North Carolina.

Arai had the pleasure of waking up at 5:30 am yesterday morning to go see the sunrise with me and Pop-pop.  He was amazed.  Although this was not the best view of a sunrise since 75% of the sun was covered by clouds, which Arai thought was a mountain.

I let him get his feet wet in the ocean but he had other plans.  When he was finished he was totally soaked from the waist down.  In this picture I am not sure what he was thinking but if I had to guess it would be that he conquered the waves.

A Flat Planet

Although the sun is “emerging” from the other side, it does appear that it is on the edge of the ocean.

This was taken while I was on vacation in Nags Head, North Carolina.

Through the Grass

The sunrise yesterday was not very dramatic as it was very cloudy and the sun decided to hide behind the clouds.

A Bit of Wilderness – Work Oasis

Today I decided to make a really short video so that you can see where I go to relax on my lunch breaks most days.

 

This lake could be anywhere in the middle of the wilderness but it is located at the end of a parking lot that holds hundreds of cars daily.

 

 

I am surprised that I do not see more people here releasing some of the work stress that we deal with on a daily basis.

Only the Tail

While on vacation two weeks ago I was able to see a “pod” of dolphins going in and out of the water.  Although this image is a bit grainy you can see the tail of the dolphin.

It was beautiful to see these creatures against the colorful sunrise.

Wanna Be Happy?

Driving into work today I was listening to the Steve Harvey Morning Show and I had the pleasure of being introduced to this new song by Kirk Franklin, Wanna Be Happy. 

This song hit a nerve within me in a good way.  It told me to get out of my way and let God do his thing. This song touched me.

Please hit play and I hope you enjoy Wanna Be Happy as well.
