Back to the Beach

Last fall we took a little trip to the beach - for us, that is 4 states away (or more... who counts right?)

we spent a lot of time on the docks and at the shoreline - we met the sailor of this boat, and he was preparing to head to a regatta in southern California, and travel down the coast to Mexico.



He was really cool to talk to. He told us all about his preparations, and the supplies that he had to take. You probably can't see this, as neither did I -  but in that cabin  - he has a complete kitchen, with  a refrigerator and stove! 


(above) is another view of his boat and the Rock!

I love the clouds in the sky and the drama that they add to the view!


This was a fun trip - and it was warm where we were - sadly we left the kids behind .... and they had to do chores in the snow ... I shouldn't laugh -  but, well I did!

Estin and the 86'd

My Husband and I got to go on a REAL date!! ha ha - one the didn't have a kids sporting event! and it was a lot of fun!!

In Greeley Colorado - there is the Moxi Theatre in Downtown Greeley - and


was playing. They were opening for Josh Ward.... but we went to see Estin.  The bass player is a friend of ours and we wanted to see if he was any good!  ( Just kidding... we knew he was)

I decided to take my camera to see what shooting in a dark environment might be like - and you know what? It as hard!

But I had fun, and I think I got a few shots that I liked. 



This is the whole band - and I learned that I am not as tall as I thought I was!!

Estin :

The Bass Player - Colton









This one would be my  most favorite,


Thanks for Visiting!!

Marine Corp Base Quantico - Marine Museum

Have you ever been to the Marine Museum at Marine Corp Base Quantico?
If you haven't - that is truly a destination to head over to.


We were going to go for a few hours, and ended up staying the WHOLE day!
It was amazing!


Just in case you didn't believe I was really there (haha!)

This is the center Rotunda


The aircraft on Display are astounding!!


There is a section of the Museum dedicated to each war that the Marines were called in to - and I do not have a favorite - but the Iwo Jima area was amazing!




This is the flag.... It still gives me the chills to see it again



The whole story is there on the walls for all to see.

If you ever get a chance to go to this museum - I highly Recommend it
( and may have another post all about it soon)

Visiting DC



I LOVE the Architecture in Washington DC
there is so much to look at
and if you play the angles right
I think the photos can be so dramatic

There are days that I think I would like to live in this cabin ;-)    I might need to add a door tho!
