Weekly Photo Challenge: Together

These kayaks belong to my husband and me. This picture was taken a summer or two ago when we docked in Half Moon Bay for a lunch break.

Ocean Kayaking is my favorite sport. I can’t explain it but it is a euphoric feeling for me to glide through the ocean waters, listening only to the rhythmic sound of the salt water splashing against my kayak, and sharing my day with sea otters, seals and seagulls who circle around me with curiosity. It is I who has invaded their territory, so I move with respect for their domain. This is a gift that reminds me of how small I am and makes me appreciate the wonders of the world. Sounds cheesy I know, but this is one of the things in life that centers me. What centers you?

(My apologies ~ not a great quality photo but I liked the image for the challenge.)

  1. I grew up not far from the beaches of Southern California. Surprising, then, that I’m not really an ocean person. But I love photos of oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, you name it. And all kinds of ocean craft. So, obviously, I love your photo.

      • LOL! Thank you for your kind words, it is your blog that inspires me so I very much appreciate you stopping by and commenting. I jet skied in Key West but have not kayaked there, it sounds fun. Heading up to Seattle to kayak the San Juan Islands is high on my list. I’ve actually seen videos of whales jumping out of the water feet from kayakers, That might be a bit close for me but from a little further away it would be heaven!

  3. I think your photo is a fine one, actually – but what got me is the notion you related of treading lightly as an intruder among the sea otters and their pals. If only everyone thought that way!

  5. Love the photo! They also remind me of Dutch wooden shoes, in a way. My pets center me. I love my husband in a million ways, but the critters get me out of myself in a way he can’t.

  6. Really like your photography. Good eye for design, I do believe you are a designer! With the opportunity to travel, having access to varying picturesque scenery, if you were interested, you could submit your work to photo stock companies, and probably do very well. They are looking for scenes that carry a message. Your photography is very symbolic! I have been doing some research and will probably submit some of my work. Thank you for visiting my website and looking at my photos of Main St. Station in Richmond, VA.

    • Thank you so much for your kind comments. Funny you should mention about the stock photography because it is something I’ve been considering as I already have been approached by individuals. What sites do you do this on? I know of Istock but I’m not familiar with these sites too much.
