Hello all! I am here to share a little bit of fashion, scenery, and a brief updates this fine Tuesday evening. My parents and I went on a one-night trip out of town on Sunday, and I of course brought my camera. I hope you enjoy these scenes of the beautiful California coast.
Around lunchtime, we arrived in Crescent City. We dropped by Safeway to grab a bite to eat, then headed down an inland road. After stopping for a picnic lunch we arrived at a trail-head and enjoyed a short hike. Above you see a view of the creek where we sat (or photographed) for a bit.
That evening we enjoyed a pizza dinner and then enjoyed some coastal scenery. It was a beautiful time for taking photos! Fog prevented us from being able to see the sunset from our hotel room’s picture window that night, but I’m glad that we got to go to the beach at golden hour.
My outfit is comprised of a few familiar items in addition to a new peasant top. You see, my mom was sweet enough to go shopping for me the other day and found some great items! This floral top is one of them. It has a flowing shape, so I belted it and rolled up the sleeves. Worn in this manner, it looked better with my skirt.
The next morning saw us visiting a lighthouse. The white and red building is on an island not far from the shore; the road to it is covered with water part of the time. After visiting the lighthouse we visited a marine mammal rehabilitation center, ate lunch, and did some thrifting. Then we were back on the road!
Now for a bit of a life update in case you’re wondering why I’m always so busy (and not very good at commenting on blogs…). To begin with, I’m still up to the usual things, which include my childcare and housekeeping jobs, church, Bible and book studies, and volunteering at our local pregnancy care center. In addition to that I recently finished test-driving the curriculum for the Bible Bee, since I know the lady in charge of the curriculum the this year. That study (which was good, by the way!) took up a fair amount of time, and meant using the computer quite a bit. Attending jury duty for five nonconsecutive days took up some morning hours recently. To round it all off is the occasional social event or friend visit. And then there's eating, sleeping, and internet....
Enough about me...tell me about you!
Have you been on any out-of-town getaways this summer?
Have you ever done Bible Bee?
Been to jury duty?
Do you not fear Me?’ says the Lord.
‘Will you not tremble at My presence,
Who have placed the sand as the bound of the sea,
By a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass beyond it?
And though its waves toss to and fro,
Yet they cannot prevail;
Though they roar, yet they cannot pass over it.
