It seems that there is a need for a little more peace and serenity in our lives. In all of our busy-ness these are so difficult to experience, especially with the craziness of the holiday season. I’m a firm believer in taking time to savor the simple silence that nature offers us. So with that said, here are a few photos of my escape from the calls of the shopping centers and black Friday sales. We won’t be back to the coast until summer and so I thought I’d chronicle some of the blissful beauty by the sea.
