Pacific Views

The ocean has always played a big role in our family and most of us still live within a few blocks of it. My daughter has been surfing for 15 years, both for exercise and the sheer joy of it. This mosaic is a collection of pictures of her, taken over the past 2 years. She took the picture in the center - it's of her favorite surf spot in our town.

Special thanks to my favorite neighbor Kevin, who captured the six action shots.

My sister surfs for the same reason...the sheer joy. I'd have to say, surfing in California sounds much more appealing than surfing the cold waters of the north Oregon coast.

It's 23 degrees here right now! Your mosaic looks wonderful! Have a happy week!

Great mosaic! It is 13 degrees here so your mosaic looks so warming. Have a great day!

I don't know why I didn't move to California back in the 60's instead of Colorado, maybe too far away from my daughter's grandmother, however my brother did. So my trips to the Golden West were so enjoyable!!!

If any foreigner was to ask where to go, I would have to say, see California...from the bottom to the top it's amazing, so much history and diversity!

You lucky girls!!!

My daughter's just learning how to surf! I can well imagine having a little mosaic of her myself one day - it makes a beautiful image.

The colours are so rich and yet altogether soft. Wonderful.

Personally, I worry about the sharks, I can't swim. I love to watch her swim though!

What a beautiful mosaic! Sure is a different picture of what we are experiencing here ~ high temperatures in the low 30's.

I have perused many of your past posts and have enjoyed visiting with you! Sweet place you have here!

Kindly, ldh

Your mosaic and beautiful ocean photos make me want to live by the water. I can see why that is your daughters fave spot to surf, it's gorgeous. Happy New Year, Kathy.

Sorry I am so late with my comment. This was such a nice mosaic to see on a cold winter's night!
