The Bold, Beautiful Waves of the Oregon Coast

The Bold, Beautiful Waves of the Oregon Coast

What is it about an ocean beach that we’re drawn to?  There’s something about visiting the ocean shore that’s amazing, right?  The sound of seagulls and crashing waves, walking barefoot along the shoreline, breathing in the salty sea air, and of course we can’t leave until we get our picture with those big beautiful waves behind us.Continue Reading

It’s simple but addicting too…you draw a line and then let the little scarfed sledder ride your line!  Easy, right?Continue Reading

St. Louis and the Arch

St. Louis and the Arch

I was in St. Louis recently for work. I had a few extra hours before I needed to be at the airport to head  back home and my hotel was practically within spitting distance of the Arch, so I couldn’t not go check out this big, fun, monumental thing.Continue Reading

A Steller’s Jay Makes a Stellar Splash

A few weeks ago I happened to be walking by our front window and noticed this guy in our bird bath. I thought for sure by the time I was able to get my camera and tripod out that for sure he would be gone.Continue Reading
