Ushering in a New Year

by the sea
Whidbey Island
spending the night at Point No Point light house
away from phones, internet
out of touch with the world
in touch with nature, life, loved ones

I hope your new year is full of the people and places you cherish most


  1. so glad you got to ring in the near year surrounded by your favorite things... isn't having quality time communing with mother nature and the family the best? Cheers to you and another year filled with color, light, creativity and plenty of island hopping. joie

  2. Oh Beverly I'm so gladd you've took me along to Whidbey Island. Man do I long for that place. My heart aches. Those images are stunning my friend. You've got it in you big time to take wonderful pictures.

    When I see the boys strolling over the beach I close my eyes and still imagine us there...remember. My vases are still filled with those beautiful drifwood pieces.

    Sweet hugs and thanks for the memories.

  3. Happy New Year, Beverly. Your photos are wonderful, as usual! All the best in 2010.

  4. Wishing you a wonderful 2010 - the photos are just beautiful what breath taking views - I would love to see Whidbey Island some day - maybe I should make it a resolution!

  5. Oh my, the beauty and serenity of these just takes my breath away! So glad you immersed yourself in nature and family and may that joy carry on right through the year... and beyond!
