Beach Vacation

Last week for my birthday,
my dear hubby planned a trip to the beach.
The Oregon Coast.
... A place that we love and have shared so many
beautiful memories ...
The weather was sunny all week and the sky was glorious!

I must stroll near the ocean at least once a year

The heavens declare the glory of God
and the firmament showeth His handiwork

The sunsets were amazing. The rays of light shining down
between the clouds onto the ocean lifted my heart to God in praise.

I took photo after photo of the sky
and yet even more of our Afghan Hounds on the beach
... and sleeping afterwards. But I will save those for another day.
It was a wonderful birthday week!
