Oh the things you can see

Oh the things you can see if you




From our summer vacation to the Blue Ridge Parkway where we discovered lots wonderful things along the many trails we took.

At Wrightsville Beach on the East Coast of North Carolina

I took a few hundred photos and will be sharing more in the coming days. The parkway itself was beautiful with huge mountains, wonderful stone bridges, towering trees, glassy lakes, fog, and breathtaking views.
And just as beautiful were the trails we took which led to waterfalls, giant boulders, lush foliage, little streams, and even more breathtaking views.
I ruined a pair of shoes on these trails and it was totally worth it!

And since we live in Kansas, it's always feels good to see the ocean, to put our feet in the sand watch the surf rushing in.  Wrightsville Beach was beautiful, clean and amazing!

I guess we all take for granted the unique attractions of our own backyard, Alice... I live in view of the ocean but rarely walk the beach. There are wonderful vistas where you make your home that you must take for granted as well!

Oh, you've captured some wonderful-ness! I'm constantly looking down at the wonder as well. I like that you spotted some very cool bits that others might have missed. Beautiful!
