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.
