Those who follow us regularly may recall a recent post I made, an ode dedicated to the love of my life, Mrs. Toad. The post titled “Celebrating 12 Years” talks about our anniversary and what it means to me, and notes that at that time we had one flipper out the proverbial door as we headed out for a weekend getaway. In today’s post we’re going to check out a few pictures we took during our stay at our favorite resort, the very same resort we honeymooned at and love to return to every chance we can.
As we arrived at Fossil Bay Resort for the first evening of our stay, we were greeted by the fleeting light of day as the sun set on the western horizon. This set the perfect tone for the evening and we then anticipated the sunset for the next day and got ready to capture it in all of its magnificence. It’s been said that no two sunsets are the same, and no where is this more evident than on the coast where the horizon seems to dip and disappear into the distance, seemingly forever. It’s hard to tell from this picture, but it was very, very cold this day as we stood on the deck of our private cabin and took in the special show nature had in store for us.
Immediately after capturing the sunset, we turned to see a misty coastline as the very last light of day accented the rugged and beautiful coast. Due to the lack of light, exposure times were long, making the churning waters of the powerful ocean tides a smooth and blue surface. If you look closely you can see the golden light of the sunset dancing off the windows of a house that is deeply embedded in the forest that surrounds it. A strong feeling of peace and solitude washed over us as the sense of time slowly faded, leaving us with the perception that we were the last two people left on planet earth.
The private hot tub on the deck of each cabin provides a wonderful break from the everyday. Hours drift by as we sat in the tub watching the ships and boats make their way to and fro. Some folks are fishing, while others pilot huge container transports full of goods. It’s much like a painting that is constantly changing, revealing scenes and glimpses that are only here for a moment, only to be changed once again as the light and features change.
As we head right into the new year, we are very excited about what 2015 has in store for us all. We’ve enjoyed a delightful break during the holidays, and just like a visit to the resort that comes to an end our daily activities come back into clear focus now. A strong sense of being recharged, a revitalization if you will, motivates us to embrace the new year and all the exciting adventures it has in store for us.
Thank you one and all for all your support, friendship and encouragement over the years. As always, we love to hear from all our visitors so please do feel free to leave us any comments you may have below, we’d really love that. And cheers to 2015!!
