oh let's be adventurers!

Wow, it has been a while since I've blogged!

During the month of October,
my family and I ventured on a trip down 
the west coast of the United States, 
from Seattle, WA to Huntington Beach, CA.

The trip was a healthy mix of vacation, art and ministry.
and we had a really special time together.

If you have seen the Oregon coast, 
the Redwood forests,
or the Big Sur in California,
you will likely agree with me when I say that 
"spectacular" seems to be a weak word to describe those places.
Perhaps, "awe-inspiring, heart-stirring, magnificent and dramatically spectacular"
would better describe the beauty that sits on the west edge of the continent.
Okay, okay ... I'll stop.

In truth, I am always so drawn to the ocean, 
and I miss it when I've been away from it for too long.
The sheer majesty, the relentlessness of it
communicates deeply to my soul.

I saw a t-shirt once that said,
"adventure is a family value".
I think I'd like to get that t-shirt!

Here are a few of my favourite scenes.

May you be inspired.

May your days be filled with joy and inspiration!
