A beautifuly temperate late afternoon, it was clear the evening would be warm and balmy. At four-thirty I phoned my husband at work and said, "Let's skip dinner and meet at the ocean." I packed up some granola bars and snacks, brought him a change of clothes (I knew he'd want to dive in) and we did just that.
It was light when we arrived
while the sun set
and the sky darkened to an orange glow.
I know I can be much too impulsive. The fact that this photo was taken at the same place on the same day, but in early morning hours, reveals my fault all too well.
But some of our best memories are made when we stop to notice a lovely day and just...live. As we drove away from this place, pleasantly tired, my five-year-old mused, "God is weally, weally amazing, isn't He?"
He certainly is.
