Our Vacation View


While we were not very far from home on our vacation, we got some glimpses of nature that we don't usually see--or take the time to see--when we're at home.

This heron carried some sticks for his nest all the way across the pier where we were, then dropped it just a few feet from his nest on a piling.  It was so sad!  We all felt so badly for him!

Some pretty cherry blossoms


Sunset on the river


At the beach front across the street from our rental house


Another sunset


The sky practically blew up with color.  It made for some beautiful pictures!!


Another of the beach front


This just proves that when you slow down and take the time to look, there is beauty all around you.

Whoa, the sunset is just stunning! It's a great thing that you've found some time to go out and explore nature, which, as you said, offered an unusual view. I hope it somehow relieved you of your stress and made you appreciate nature and life. :)
