Photos


On the Jungle Cruise ride at Disneyland, the boat goes behind a waterfall. The guide says, “Now here’s something you don’t see every day – the backside of water. I, however, do see it every day.” Corny joke but I always laughed. Somehow it was even more funny that every guide said it every time, on every ride. They not only saw it every day, they said the same joke every day, all day long.

Here’s something I don’t see every day – the beach. I took this photo while in Australia. I walked on the boardwalk every morning, enjoying the beauty of the ocean, sand and even some wildlife.

What about the things we do see every day? I don’t live near a beach, but I am only a few miles away from a beautiful, 10,000 foot high mountain. I enjoy looking at it and am thankful for the natural beauty around me. What do you see every day? Do you long for the beach when you have a mountain in your backyard? Let’s appreciate all we have and see it for what it is: a gift from God.

You just never know what you’ll find when you go for a walk. This must have fallen out of the tree. I didn’t have my camera so I went home to get it and came back for the photos. Fortunately the batteries in my camera lasted just long enough!

This little guy seemed to like this rose as much as I do – he stayed on it for most of the day. He, or she, is the usual color. Beautiful, don’t you think?

As I came around the corner of my patio, I was stopped in my tracks by this little – rather big – praying mantis sunning himself on the block fence. He agreed to pose for me a couple of times before taking off.
