Live in the Sunshine, Swim in the Sea {out to see}

art by Katie Daisy

We are enjoying every moment of the sunshine, clear blue skies and the beautiful gray-blue of the summer sea here in the Puget Sound area! The weather has been glorious and we are trying to take full advantage while the sun is warm!

This past week we’ve spent most of our time drinking in the salty air, whether splashing in our local waterfront fountains by the marina or taking in the breathtaking waters and cities of Victoria and Vancouver, British Columbia. Embracing the moments of summer, one by one.


Soaking in the beautiful sparkle of the sea and imagining what adventures await …

just across land and sea…

Standing in awe of inspiring history and architecture.

Taking the time to stop and savor the laughs along the way,

while dreaming of what beautiful green grasses and lush flowers lie just beyond the white arbors.

Smiling and embracing it all.

From captivating views that literally took our breath along the way.

… to crossing friendly borders to explore the beauty beyond.

Human babies and fur babies all learning to live life to the full and savor it all, whether near or far — life is what you make of it.

By land or by sea. Home or away. Embracing the joy of living and being together.

Continuing the adventures and dreams that started so many years ago on the shores of Puget Sound, for a young girl out to sea.

Are you embracing your summer days?

  3. I’m incredibly fortunate to live near the beautiful Inner Harbour and Empress Hotel you featured in your first few shots! My neighbourhood is surrounded by water on three sides and the amazing Beacon Hill Park on the fourth. Ah, heaven!

  4. Oh wow! This is wonderful. I MUST show this to my son. He has been talking about moving to Vancouver, and this might help convince him (not that I want him to move that far away, but it sure looks like a gorgeous place to live and/or visit.)

  6. Gorgeous! YES, I’m embracing summer; we’ve had spectacular, not-too-hot weather as well. School starts in 2 weeks so my hubby goes back to work; I’m almost in panic mode! Gotta fit more beach time in!
