To explain my photo a bit, one of my "dreams" is to have a home overlooking the ocean. In my mind's eye, I have fond memories of - and can clearly picture - a small, wooden cabin on the side of a mountain, overlooking the wonderous vista of the sea before me; listening to the trill of birdsong in the tall pines and aspens and cottonwood trees that border my home along the sides and back... I can feel the cool breeze and taste the salty air and see the gulls and eagles flying over the shoreline... I am homesick for this place -- but in reality, I've never been there. It exists only in my mind... in my heart...
This week's photo is a representation of that dream. It was taken at 11:33 pm along the Homer Spit in southcentral Alaska on July 14, 2011. The body of water is part of the Cook Inlet, called Kachemak Bay -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kachemak_Bay -- This part of the state - the Kenai Peninsula - is my favorite part of all Alaska. Someday I hope to have a home there, but only as the Lord wills.
Hope you enjoy my photo this week -- thanks for looking!
