  1. Nicely done Kathy! You must have a water proof camera to be so brave as to take it out on the water with you. I can smell the air from hear and the hush as evening settles in… thanks for the paddle:)

    Oh Kathy, reading the words of Taps almost makes me feel like I am back at summer camp! It may be 40 years later, but seems just like now (yesterday being too long ago). The pictures are beautiful and words come back like it’s campfire all over again! They are never lost.

    Thank you.

    Kiah has had a great vacation at home with family and friends. She may not get on that plane to go back! Call when you get a chance. I have enjoyed all the pictures of her trip.

    Simple and beautiful…..just like you and Kiah! And I’m with Erin….those few words brought back so many memories of all the summer camps I’ve been, too. Camp Capers in TX, Camp Menehune (little Hawaiian gnome-like guys) and Camp Molokeia in HI……much fun, summer friends, steps along my faith walk…. :}

    Gorgeous photos. They are all beautiful but “Returning to shore” captivated me.

  10. Susan D. says:

    P.S. – for some reason, the very first photo is my favorite. It entices with its possiblities, and looks like a lovely present placed there by the Waters ….

  11. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, “returning to shore” is my favorite.

  12. How serene. Must have been lovely to quietly skim over a calm body of water capturing it all for us to see. Nice end to your day.

    Thanks all you! It was a magnificent evening. I didn’t tell you the Stories though. Here is a synopsis of what happened. I bravely–yes, Terrill, bravely–took the camera in a waterproof baggie plus a waterproof bag. Then, at the end, I fell out of the kayak while trying to get out! It was So funny! The camera survived. John taught me the basics of kayak rescue. It was so funny… And, thank goodness, the camera survived. Thanks everyone for coming by and commenting and enjoying!

Thank you for reading. May you be blessed in your life...may you find joy in the simple things...
