Turquoise Blue

Wave breaking on rock at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, Big Sur, CA.

The white sand beneath gives the water this wonderful color.


Today is 9/11. I grew up in and around NYC. Everytime I think about what happened seven years ago, I just want to cry. So many lives lost in anger and hate and so many more lives changed forever.

Never forget.

Such beautiful water and the colour is just stunning John, the water breaking over the rocks seems to signify the tragic anniversary of so much devistation, my thoughts are with all of you there who have known or lost someone in the 9/11 tragedy, I imagine it will be something none of us, especially you there - will ever forget.

The water is so beautiful. Such a gorgeous color. Mesmerizing.

I will also never forget. I think we all lost something that day even if we didn't know anyone personally who was affected.

Where I live it is almost impossible to not know someone who was not directly affected by the tragic loss that day.

This totally reminds me of the beautiful coastlines we saw while on our Mediterranean cruise last fall, John, and our time in Australia back in April. I LOVE the sea and views like this! Spectacular!

Deepest sympathies for the trauma of 9/11. While we can gaze at a still clean Pacific and find a spot for ourselves to feel happy and safe, there's hope for a better future. Beautiful colours in this one.
