Camano Island (March 16th)

A little spring in the air has brought some sunny days and some outside time. There were short outings to enjoy the spring air at Whatcom Falls Park…

Springtime colors are especially vivid…

And beautifully intricate patterns can pop up in the most unexpected places, like the back of a beetle!

For an extra-special treat, we took a day-trip to Camano Island to enjoy the spring sunshine on the beach!

It was a beautiful day with gentle breezes and sparkling water and all the wonder that comes along with this Pacific Northwest coastline!

God’s creation is always full of all my favorite colors!

Spring seemed to bring a coordinated color palette of golds and russets, in the maple blossoms…

Especially striking when set against a turquoise sky!

The familiar muted blues and grays and sea-greens and rose-reds of the beautiful beach stones were all there like a homecoming, and were even buried in the layers of the sandy cliffs, haha!

And especially fun catching something! Asher was thrilled to have the chance to handle this lovely little garter snake.

You can tell the snake is thrilled too, of course 🙂

A feast for the eyes, a feast for all the senses, fun, inspiring, relaxing, exhilarating, all wrapped up in a day at the beach with God!
