I don't want to rush winter along too quickly.  I love its barren tree branches against its dark sky, its stormy wild ocean, and its foggy misty forest.  But this weekend of warm sun was a wonderful gift to keep us going - appreciating the present but with an eye toward warmer and different adventures, and the new life that will soon spring up.


  1. Oh man, I wish I lived close to a beach. Love your photos!

    Side note: Don't forget it's a leap year! 366 days to enjoy in 2012!

  2. Thank you! Oh wow, you're right - hooray for an extra day to enjoy! It's so great to be close to the beach as well as the mountains. Oregon calls you, JG.
