Down by the River
There's a lovely river that runs near the beach house. It snakes through pastures, a small pine forest and the dunes until it reaches the ocean. Our house is situated in a little settlement nestled between the mouth of the river and the ocean.
When things got too chaotic for me, I would take my camera down to the river. Always peaceful and it never looks the same way twice. The river mouth changes constantly, and the water level fluctuates dramatically depending on rain and high or low tide. Sometimes a mere creek, other times a deep, dangerous and fast-moving current.
This lovely path runs north from the bridge until it reaches pasture:
Looking south towards the mouth of the river and the ocean:
Holy cow, that top pic is GORGEOUS. I want it for a book cover, I think... ;)
