From the the ocean white with foam

We have been away from our Island for a bit leaving the sea for the mountains. Specifically, Blowing Rock North Carolina.  Traded in the heat of an Amelia summer for the coolness of the mountains, about 7 1/2 hours drive away.

                                           We left the sight of a beach sunrise in Amelia .....

...for the beauty of sunrise in the mountains with its cloud rise as the forest exhaled its breath. This was the view from our deck in a lovely rented home.  Different manifestations of the beauty of nature.

                 From the majesty of the ocean swells to the sweet lullaby of a mountain waterfall.

As Americans we are blessed from sea to sea with bounteous vistas of all kinds where we find repose and peace from daily worries and work.  Here in Amelia, we are not far from the mountains either in N. Carolina or Georgia or from ocean views.  We both were born in southeastern New England, not far from New Hampshire mountains and not far from the ocean in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  We are grateful for all of the blessings of the past, present and our tomorrows.

                                             It is always good, though, to come home.....
