Ocean shoreline abounds here in Puget Sound, and yesterday time was taken to walk the beaches, and to take in the beauty of the islands, the marine life, and the wonderful ocean air. While walking amongst endless pieces of driftwood and washed up logs, I came upon oyster beds, and to my delight blackberry bushes ready for the picking. Oh, they were so delicious! Towards the end, my hands were stained a crimson red and my legs and arms were stratched a time or two from the thorns of the blackberry briar. While I walked, I sensed a time of changing, as some leaves had turned and appeared to be ready for falling. While the sunshine is still warm and vibrant, I sense that Autumn will soon be here.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
