Inspiration and Replenishment

My Beloved and I have been on a mini-vacation and plan to return home today. These photos were taken from the enclosed balcony adjoining our bedroom of the place we love to stay when we’re in the Monterey/Carmel/Pacific Grove Area. We could see, hear, smell, and feel the invigorating and cleansing power of the waves throughout the day and as we slept. We’re grateful for the many blessings we experience daily, including being able to live so close to such beauty.

  1. How beautiful and peaceful it is to look at the ocean…… Diane

  2. How wonderful. I love the photos. Ahh the ocean promotes such healing and I find myself longing for the beaches in Peurto Plata in the Dominican…

      It’s a small world. We had a wonderful day in Carmel yesterday before heading home. Scones and tea at the Tuck House. Walking through a garden shop and browsing a book shop with a lot of character. Exploring a shop with a lot of fun items. I think it was called Artisana. Walking the picturesque streets, stretching our legs, and enjoying the weather. I hope you had a great time too.
