After our talk
I went for a walk
By the edge of the rolling sea
Seeking peace of mind
And what did I find
God's grace descending on me.

Mind fully focused
Eyes downcast seeking pattern
Shell meditation

A few pictures and reflections from Oct 2 - Oct 17:

Ladyfish - fun to catch but not to eat. We used it as cut bait to catch the redfish below.

Bill's first redfish of 2016. 22 lbs and 36 inches. A good start to the season.

Evangeline's first encounter with the beach.

Allison and Owen stayed busy playing in the sand and surf.

Rays peeping over
The edge of a bright new day
Triumphant glory.

Proud Heron strutting 

Willet and I share
Sunrise, beach walk and breakfast
With seagull or two,.

October 1 - Arrival

Soft sand, softer breeze
Caught in the glow of twilight
Peace slowly descends.

Big Creek and Cosby trip

Bill and I enjoyed two days in the mountains, on the east side of the the Smokies. Henry and Jane joined us for a hike at Big Creek. We spent the night at Cosby Campground in the park and hiked to on the Gabes Mountain trail to Henwallow Falls the next day.

July 4 Family Celebration

What a joy to have family and "almost family" gathered to celebrate.
