Oh my goodness...I live here!

So today I was out driving around with the kids trying to get them to maybe take naps...yeah right. Anyway, they always love going to "look at the ocean" so we drove down to the beach and this time I actually remembered to bring my camera so I took a few shots and as I was looking around I realized how beautiful this island is. I love it here so much and I remember when we lived on the other "brown" side of the state that all I wanted to do was get back to the green pretty side, but now I take it for granted. I love this place. The water and the trees and the green and I just always feel like I can breathe here. My pictures don't do it justice but I thought it would be fun to stick some on here anyway.



This is the property where I want to build my dream house. I love it out here, and next time I'll shoot a picture of the actual property, it's up the road and to the left, but I was afraid people would think I was a stalker or something!

Good pictures - they look like postcards. Yes, we do take it for granted. Had a friend visit from Utah and she was so excited to see the ocean. I am very happy to live in this area too, especially if one of the last plagues is going to be a drought! We will be doing just fine. Have to admit though, the gray gets to me sometimes - I need to up my Vitamin D pills :) Happy Veteran's Day

I love these pictures. But next time I think I'd love them more if you had someone else take it, with you frolicking on the beach in the distance or something. Because to me, that's what Oak Harbor is all about.

We really do live in such a pretty place. I think if I invest in a sun lamp, I will never have to leave ;)
