Astaak is the native name for the point on which I built my home. It means “the sun comes out.” It overlooks Abbecombec, which is the native word for a wide curving bay and also the name of the village below my home along whose beaches I stroll almost daily. Continue reading
Morning and evening in Clam Bay.
I once again took all my images and put them in a slideshow. Editing is hard!
The music selection doesn’t have anything to do with the imagery, I just hadn’t listened to Elvis Costello in a long time. Continue reading
I love the ocean. I love to surf. I love waves.
Getting back into surfing has been a challenge. More of a challenge than learning the first time, which was the most difficult thing I ever accomplished. It’s been frustrating and demoralizing at times to want to do it so badly and to just not be able to. I won’t give up. I can’t. Continue reading
