Weekly photo challenge: love

We had to check it out.  This amazing place called Two Lovers Point in Guam.

And he is the love of my life.

Thankfully, we didn’t feel the need to jump from the cliff, as described of the two lovers in the legend of Two Lovers Point. 🙂

Looking for a few good books

I just finished reading a really good book.  The title of the book is “The Secret Keeper” by, Kate Morton.

It’s a novel filled with mystery, suspense, and love.

The characters in the book are very well-developed by the author. Even when I wasn’t reading the book, I would often find myself thinking about them. Wondering what would happen to them next, and trying to figure out why they were doing what they were doing!

There are several twists and turns throughout the book, and the ending actually surprised me!  I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I was sad to have it end.

I always have mixed emotions when I get to the end of a book. I have a sense of accomplishment because I finished it, but then I have the daunting task of searching for another good book to read.

I think this just about sums it up for me….

Start a new book

However, I won’t let this stop me for too long.  And I will find another good book to read. My love for reading is just too great to keep me away from another adventure.

So now I’m off … in search of a few good books!

Weekly photo challenge: Surprise

It was a beautiful day at the beach, no surprise here!

As we were eating breakfast outside on the patio, we saw this young man set up his “band”. It was a pleasant surprise to hear the music he was able to make with a Home Depot bucket, 2 tambourines, and a ukulele.

He whistled and sang, and strummed a few happy tunes.  He graciously remarked “thank you” as the people passing by dropped money in his hat that was sitting on the sidewalk.

I think everyone got a little surprise that day!

The people, by the music, and he, by the people’s generosity.
