Week 30: Day at the Beach

Now, I know what you're thinking: "Don't you live in Utah?" Yes. Yes, I do. And we drove a surprisingly short time to get to this lovely beach in IDAHO. Perhaps you've heard of it? Bear Lake was discovered a bit by accident for us; my husband's family goes there every year in the summer to enjoy the soft sand and warm surf. (And, yes, Bear Lake really does have both!) I just love how the beach brings out our true personalities.

There are those who sit around, eat some, and attempt to keep mostly un-sandy:

And, then, there are those that just love everything about the shore so deeply that they become one with the sand and waves.

Week 28: Baby Amulek

This here is living proof that if the baby is cute enough you CAN take good baby pictures with even the crappiest of point/shoot cameras... (Isn't he just such a little dolly!?)

And, okay, I have to admit that I just love the way babies make themselves understood, sometimes:

Week 27: Visual Love Letter to Seattle

Seattle=green. As evidenced by this view through my friend's kitchen window.

The Gum Wall (Yeah...gross, right?)

When in doubt as to whether or not you are in the correct restroom, please check your chromosomes. Yes, seriously.

A view from the inside of the Seattle public library. (We're sort of nerdy. Even on road trips.)

Some lovely peonies at the Pike Place market.

Three of my experiments with low light at Golden Gardens.

A spider-web at Gas Works Park

The fantastically beautiful reading room in the Suzzallo Library on the University of Washington's campus.

A view through the campus' sunlit cherry trees.
