Last day of August

You'll notice I did not title this post Last Day of Summer. In our homeschooling household summer doesn't end till the autumnal equinox. Doesn't mean we're not shifting gears, we are. But when the day feels like summer we live summer.

Whereas we usually head to the mountains on the weekend, today we lived summer at the ocean with a visit to Reid State Park. I'm sheepishly admitting this is the first time we've been to the ocean all summer, and most likely our last. The kids loved it. And I loved it - the sun, the surf but mostly capturing it all with my new camera.

    Thanks. I am having SO much fun with my camera it gives my stomach flutters just to use it. To capture moments the way my eye sees them, what a gift. Renee

    These are incredible. It's amazing what a new camera can do, eh? Did you ever mention what kind of camera you got? I'd love to know, if you don't mind sharing.

      I don't mind sharing. I wrote a post about the whole camera story here & here. The short of it is (but read the story it's good), due to a generous gift from my parents we purchased a D300. I'm kind of sheepish in admitting it since this is thee nicest thing I've ever owned, and it's pretty much mine, all mine.... I'm in camera heaven...

    Don't stop breathing please - I like you as a friend smile. Thanks Casey, those are very kind words. I'm glad you all indulge me and visit this blog where I share my life. I'm just amazed anyone wants to listen!
