#atozchallenge – W for Water

It was long overdue! I haven’t been for a walk along water for a long time. And I craved it! I so needed it! So yesterday I packed my son and the dogs in the car and drove to my favorite beach for walks.

The moment I stepped out of the car I knew it was the right decision. It was windy and colder than I thought it would be but the air was fresh smelled and tasted of fresh saltwater and my energy level spiked immediately.

It’s little things that sometimes give you the most. Just like a walk along the beach, listening to the waves, watching the water and feeling one with everything…

Cee’s Which Way Challenge – March 10th, 2017

When I watch ships out there on the horizon I often ask myself the question how many times sailors must wonder which way they are really going and if it is the right one, no matter of their navigation systems. Especially centuries ago when they were out on their discovery journeys, navigating with the stars. I ask myself how often they found themselves questioning if the way they have chosen will actually get them somewhere and wondering what they will find when they arrive.

Sometimes the way we chose is clear, with a clear goal in sight. Sometimes it’s not. But no matter if this is the case we still never truly know if we will actually end up where we want to be or if life will through us a curve ball that will guide us to an entirely different outcome…

This challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

Rare


I love to walk along the beach and when I found little “treasures” like the ones in the picture it makes me even happier. I find it’s one of the rare gifts of the ocean.

When I was a child my best friend and I usually scanned the beach for shells like these, we dove as deep as we were able to if we spotted one on the bottom of the ocean. And each and every time we found one or were able to get one from under the water we felt like having found a treasure.

Besides stunning me with their amazing beauty they also remind me of the time spent over summer with my friend and whenever I find one of those shells they put a smile on my face and make me think of her…

More Shark Facts – Did You Know…

… That there are more than 465 known species of sharks living in our oceans today?

Sharks belong to a family of fish that have skeletons made of cartilage, a tissue more flexible and lighter than bone. They breathe through a series of five to seven gill slits located on either side of their bodies. All sharks have multiple rows of teeth, and while they lose teeth on a regular basis, new teeth continue to grow in and replace those they lose.
