Ahhhhhhhhhh, Summertime Pleasures. . .

While I don't really enjoy fishing, I do enjoy going barefoot and wading in the water. I am glad I live near the Columbia River because it is two hours to the ocean which I wish I could visit daily but never learned to drive. One day, I will find a way there again . . . in the meantime, I can dream when I see scenes like this.

Huumm, walking barefoot in the fresh water..I share this kind of simple pleasure!
You can also dream about french Provence, with the lavander near the little boy!..

I went out to the garden barefoot just a little while ago in a light rainfall. I love the feel of the grass on my feet. I like to wade in a clear tumbling spring. I once did that in the Rio Grande. Just the edge. The water was so cold and clear.
I wonder. Could you not maybe take a bus to the Ocean for the day? If it is only 2 hours away.

Pick him up and go to the sea - there is nothing like salt water!

Oh yes! I am saving my money for such a trip. I want to take the bus and stay overnight in a hotel and get up early in the morning and collect sand dolkars off the beach.

They moved the bus station to Oregon and I have to locate it -- used to be downtown here. I have taken the two hour bus ride before. But first, I have to save my pennies for camping with Kathy, fixing crashed computer or buying a new one and buying a new camera. Then I can think of saving for it so it might be next year before I can . . . sigh

Me again - I hope you make it!
Thank you for the nice comment. It is a panorama of five overlapping (wide angled) photos taken near the top of one of our own mountains. I live on the other side of a fjord behind the third mountain. You can barely see the bridge that is in my header from the other side if you look at the enlarged version.

Fishing is fun--when nothing bites and you can relax and enjoy the day.

I didn't realize that you never learned to drive Paulie.

The statue is very cute. I love the water too. It's been a couple of years since we've been to the beach and I'm starting to get the itch again. We have a pool in our backyard, so that takes care of my need to get in the water for the most part. I just miss the expanse of the ocean.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
