52 Photos The Possibilities are Endless

52 week badge
“In this moment, there is plenty of time. In this moment, you are precisely as you should be. In this moment, there is infinite possibility."  ~Victoria Moran

Sally's assignment for this week:  There are many things around us that hold so many possibilities, a child's face, a seed of a flower, the tools pictured above.  This week pay attention to your surroundings and your daily activities and show us what holds endless possibilities for you.

This assignment was particularly difficult for me.  I needed something I could see or touch.  And here it is Saturday morning, gray skies, and even if I did think of something there would be no light  with which to get a good photo.
So I decided to show a photo that I took on one of our favorite family vacations to Northern California.

Here we are in the Beautiful Redwoods of Northern California in front of a behemoth of a tree.  I'm pretty sure my mouth was open in awe the entire time we were there.  I remember each time we got out of the car and slipped just three feet into the trees, it was like we were in another world. It was a hushed quietness that surrounded us, and it was like we were the only ones there. 

We have lots of nephews and nieces, and when my husband and I were married we decided we would take each of them on vacation with us when they turned five. The kid on the left is our nephew, and the other three are ours.

So what does this have to do with the assignment?  I can think of nothing better than seeing this beautiful U.S.A and all her amazing sights. The Possibilities are endless!

As always, I appreciate your visit here. Please check out Sally's Blog to see the other participants.

What a lovely interpretation of this week's challenge. We do have such amazing places to visit here in our country and the possibilities are endless when it comes to their beauty! Awesome shot - my mouth would have been open the entire time I was here, too! ;-)

When I lived in Seattle in the late 80's, I wanted to travel the entire West Coast - but I only made it as far as Oregon! The trees in the Northwest are NOTHING like the trees in the East! This is a wonderful picture, and I love the memories it brings you!

Your picture reminded me of when I took my girls to the redwoods and many other places back in the day.Now I am taking my granddaughter to visit the USA. Great interpretation of the challenge.

My goodness, that is a huge tree. I've always wanted to visit that part of California and see them for myself. Thanks for the reminder. :)

I've always wanted to see the redwoods... maybe some day :) I especially love the idea of spending extra time with your nieces and nephews. It seems to me that the siblings I am closest to, I have an extra special fondness for their children as well :)

Children are the natural progression of our endless possibilities and what we hope for them. Lovely post.

Oh so true! We just moved to southern CA a few months ago from MI and are really looking forward to what we can see while we are here on the western end of things. The giant Redwoods have been on our wish list for a while. Now maybe we can get there. It has to be magical to say the least:)

What I like most is your tradition of taking your young family members with you at a certain age! If I was invited by an uncle or aunt I would feel really special myself!

I just love your tradition of vacationing with your nieces and nephews. What a way to really get to know them.
