Imagine. . .

Always being the one to take the photos and video of any horseback ride....I have the horse that stands, walks straight and actully likes to  relax, as I focus upon something else...
...HA! This is me focusing upon the phone, getting it ready to take a photo or two-  I got caught! The mare was enjoying the walk home, after the 10 miles we walked.
 My sister actually did get me in a few shots riding...the one that was going to be the best was a video on the surf the second day of our Autumn beach Imagine now- in the "photo" below, lazy tides going out, me and the mare walking in them..her looking gorgeous, me looking on.....

I was going to make stills from the video...and have some nice photos..BUT...the setting on the camera did not get changed and this is it!! The above photo! I do like it, as it is not posed...we were walking and talking...I smiled alot as my sis had the camera on me for like 5 minutes..tehehe. Oh well.

 The mornings were so nice at the Bay Ocean House. The water and Sunrise over the Tillamook Bay are always dreamy. My sis caught me taking shots of the Bay, after feeding the horses.

We had  farm fresh Omelette's/ Greek yogurt and coffee from the 2 horsey mugs I brought.

  My sister told me that, "While I got mom's boobalas, she got her talent for cooking" which is NONE...!!
We had a fantastic sisterly time..I loved cooking for her and we never had to go into town till the day we left, as I brought along all the provisions.
We sat in the hot tub every night, and had several rounds of coffee through out the day.
For the rest of the time......

 looked at the ocean's tide, through the ears of our mounts~

Went head long into the winds~

Pondered the sands of time~

Followed the lead mare~got our feet wet

Stood for moments at a time, taking in the serene views~

Had smiles inside my heart for my she took a gander back to me, smiling as we left the shore for the dunes~

Of course for me, photo editing on my phone photo's, is always a treat!
Made this into an oil~

These few, I turned into a memory collage, for us both~

One never knows the number of his/her days or times of life. Yet, while having the times of your life, being consciously aware to have a thankful heart ,  we may celebrate God's goodness openly and with all~

Thanks for sharing these times with me!!!
