Back to the Bergs

April 11, 2019

I thought I missed them – my winter icebergs that I love. You can see them in full size on my post from a couple of years ago. And I was really sad. Then realized I had no right to feel sad. My reason for not getting to the beach to see the icebergs was because I was too busy playing on the slopes in the east. But nature had a gift for me. The last day on the slopes was April 7, and on the 11th I headed to the beach and got this visual treat:

And it wasn’t a moment too soon — the party was breaking up.

And then they were gone.

Finale

I had two super treats to wrap the day on the trip where we encountered the end of the bergs for the year.

  1. Look how nature took the love I feel for my man and celebrated it with a heart over his head at one of my favorite spots:
Heart over Chris' head
Heart in the sky

You can see it a bit better in this pic, but Chris looks a bit goofy. Can’t have it all, I guess 😉

Heart in the Sky

and my other treat –

2. One of my favorite things in life is taking a walk when the birds are tucking in for the night. I love the sounds of nature at dusk. Just take a listen and relax with me.

Meditation Day 20

If you must be heard, let it be like the babbling brook,
laughing over the rocks.

If you must be seen, let it be like sunlight
giving warmth and comfort to all.

If you must be acknowledged, let it be as the eyes
behold the skies in all their glory.

If you must lead, let it be like …
