august break ~ day 25-30

i guess i fell off the august break band wagon... our oldest son was home on leave for several days and we spent it out at our cabin. beautiful weather, wonderful family time...

so good to see these two having fun together again...
so good to watch him soak it all in...
(cullan took this underwater photo with his new lifecase on his iphone, at the waterfall)
a rare family shot (minus thea : { )
duffy was especially happy

august break ~ day 11

i love this random sewer cover on a gravel path
through the woods to one of my favorite beaches.
in the middle of nowhere it silently rusts away...
not too random, as here & there through the trees
 you can spot overgrown foundations now covered with moss~
all that remains of part of some Naval Base buildings from WWII.

(excuse the blurry edge, it was rainy & cold)

Those who live by the sea
can hardly form a single thought
of which the sea would not be a part.
