Well, we made it to and from the coast. That's my fella there. He's a good fella. We've been travelling together for some time now. The surprising thing is how much we still enjoy each other's company.

It was good to get out without the kids. We did a lot of walking, and chatting, and looking at shops, and taking pictures, and eating rich and fattening food. It was a wonderful weekend.

In our wanderings, I came to a realization. I think I know why macro photography holds such fascination over me. I think people don't spend enough time. They don't pause, like a child would, to enjoy the little surprises hiding in everyday life. Somewhere in the journey from child to adult we lose the ability to wonder. This world we have been given is a gift. It is time to slow down and enjoy it. Look at leaves and puddles and bubbles. Smell the ocean air. Have a long conversation with someone you love. Eat some new foods. Thank God every morning that you are awake and alive and all is well.

Thank you for taking the time to look. Be blessed this week.
