brave the wave…

WHITE ROCK BC

On my way home from Seattle, Washington today,  I spotted this brave soul out in the waves at White Rock Beach. Although it’s not anything I’m even remotely interested in doing, I admire a person who puts down their electronic devices and heads for some real living on the waves. It’s something I need to do more often.

There’s just something so soothing about watching the sun sparkle on the ocean. I took some time out to appreciate the beauty around me today–a welcome break!

How can you tell I’ve been spending time at White Rock Beach lately? I promise. When the sun shows itself, I’ll get photos of all the trees that are starting to bloom and the crocuses that are poking up through the dirt. I’m crossing my fingers that the rest of Spring Break will bring loads of sunshine!!!! I’m crossing my eyes and toes too.

 

whistle blower…

Nope! I’m not standing on the tracks! I learned my lesson about two years ago, when I underestimated the speed at which a slow train is actually travelling. I heard the whistle blow, but couldn’t see the train around the bend about 5 blocks away. So I figured I had enough time to set up my tripod on the grass beside the track and get out of the way. Not so much. I literally jumped down off the side of the track just as the train reached me and felt the suction of air as it went past. A stupid, stupid, stupid mistake that will never be repeated. I’m actually hanging over the railing on the left side when I took this photo. Sadly, we lost a young woman jogger who crossed in front of a train on this track last year, just behind where the train is in this picture. It’s nothing to fool around with, for sure.

 

who loves ya, baby…

Canada! Who loves you, baby? I sure do. You’re my true north, strong and free. You’re a safe harbour and a protector of what’s right in the world. You’ve got great views and even better people! I’m proud to call you home, sweet home.

WHITE ROCK MAR 2014

 

I don’t normally post photos from my iphone, but this was just one of those shots worthy of discussion! White Rock has been a miserable, cold, soppy, soggy mess this week, so it was very exciting when the sun showed up for a spectacular slice through the sky for a few minutes before it set today. It was like a blindingly brilliant window into heaven.
