This was a lovely post! I too collect rocks (and other bits and pieces). Whenever we travel I end up bringing home bunches of rocks, shells, etc. I wonder what the baggage handlers think! I always think of them as treasures. Thank you for sharing your words and pictures.


such beautiful pictures...and what a wonderful way to spend the day. I am missing my time at the beach collecting treasures so much right now. xoxo thinking of you!


What a wonderful post! There is something magical about trees and it shows on your old cedar photos.


I collect rocks and sticks too! I have them in bowls around my home, sometimes with a little tea light among them.
I sometimes find little pebbles left for me by the faeries..
want to swap a rock? I am serious :) but just a teeny one, not too heavy. it's ok if you don't want to of course, it is just a thought :)
I love this post, Katie, I felt like I was there with you.


You are like that strong cedar. And isn't home the most wonderful word in our language; like aum.

Looks like Paradise to me. I cannot wait for warmer weather so I can explore the lake again. It has been so cold here this winter and with the wind blowing off the lake...well, in April you need long underwear and a hood. I long to live in Washington. It feels like home.

This was such a beautiful post and adventure you took all of us on. I could just imagine all the little forest faries watching you.

Wow! The photo with the tree and the moss is almost magical!
