I'm very, very fortunate, in that of my 35 years of existence on this planet, I've spent 26 of them living within 10 miles of the ocean.
Beginning with the rocky shores of Rhode Island
|Is it just me, or do those shoes look way too big on her...and I think they're definitely on the wrong feet? This was taken in 2006...Heidi was 4 and Greta was 1.|
|Why yes, my kids do go swimming in their Sunday Best dresses...doesn't everyone? 2008...Greta was 3 yo.|
|Is that a whale in the background...or just another rock? 2008...Heidi was 6|
To the beautiful gulf coast of Naples, Fl
|This is one of my favorite photos ever...I love the shadows and light and just the whole thing. 2013..Heidi is 11, Greta is 8 and John is 5|
I've spent plenty of time at the beach and in the ocean. I learned how to swim in the salty bay and grew up swimming among seaweed and seagulls. I love the ocean...the crashing of the waves, the smell of the salty air...even the annoying seagulls have their charm.
But, as much as I love the beach and ocean...I love the mountains too....so I just had to include this gorgeous waterfall photo from a trip to TN. Because, as much as I love the beach and the ocean...I also really love the mountains and hiking and beautiful waterfalls. Ben and I met on a mountain hike in KY (he was hiking barefoot) and I have fond memories of hiking through mountain streams and visiting waterfalls.
