why i disappeared || sand from the dunes

Wednesday, August 24, 2016


just look. JUST LOOK AT THAT. the water horizon curves to the shape of the earth. IT IS SO BREATHTAKING. Pictures just don't


do it justice. You can totally feel the power of our God when you stand on top of those dunes and just stare, breathless,


at this...amazingness.





oh, yes. well. Some of you may have wondered why I haven't posted for over a week. Well, I'VE BEEN ON VACATION. (yes I


didn't tell you *hides* sorry)





BUT I bring pictures. as a peace offering.





This has been on my bucket list forever. To see the real blue water that seemed only something in the pictures. ITS REAL


PEOPLE. REAL. SO BLUE.





Okay, so see the first photo there? Okay. Looking down, I said to Bree, "Oh, it's not that far."





But then I saw the people. ITS SO STEEP. Often, people have to get rescued. RESCUED. *freaks*





A while back Julia, Bree and picked out some glass jars for the purpose of sand for our trip. So when Julia and I got there


we started filling our jars with sand and stones and such, (Bree forgot hers. :P ) You should totally do this..I mean, I HAVE


SAND. FROM THE DUNES. IN MY ROOM.





p.s. climbing dunes is the best



have you ever climbed sand dunes?


have you ever just seen something so beautiful you are just breathless?

    1. lol. Thanks so much! That's the one my sister snapped really fast before we left--I had it envisioned in my mind on how I wanted a picture of it. Of course, you could probably get a good pic of anything at the beach. ;) xD

      well it's a good thing you like chocolate because if I just found out now that you didn't or something..like..goodness. I think I'd have to stuff chocolate in your mouth until you like it. *grin*

  9. "New and old at the same time, and the bluest blue ever..." <– that's the Doctor talking about the TARDIS, but it also kinda works with that INCREDIBLE sky and ocean!! My goodness, they're pretty! :D And to think that ocean water is the same water that's been there... for years and years and years.
