The Beauty That Surrounds

I feel very fortunate to live in an area teeming with natural beauty & to be in a community dedicated to seeing that this beauty is preserved. My sister & I took advantage of the unseasonably warm February weather this past weekend (56 degrees F) to walk down to the lake. It was a calm & beautiful day. Days like these can't help but ease the soul.

...he leads me beside quiet waters,
he restores my soul.
- Psalm 23


  1. Absolutely beautiful...so you live on the lake? i would love to live near water. gorgeous photos! i have an old friend from NC who is an artist and lives in seattle. her name is faryn davis and her website is www.fernworks.org

  2. I grew up on the lake, but sadly my apartment is now about 10-15 minutes away. Mom & Dad still live there & it's a treat to have it be so accessible.

    Thanks for the website reference; can't wait to check it out!

  3. Wow, lovely lake. Looks like you live right near my father. (You aren't in Tennessee, are you?)

  4. I really do feel priveleged to live in such a beautiful area. I'm actually in NW Washington State, about 90 miles north of Seattle. This area is such a gem!! Thanks again for visiting. =)
