I was going through some of my older pictures yesterday in an attempt to organize them a little bit when I came across this one that I took while on vacation this past September. There's just something about it that's very peaceful and serene.
I took this picture from the deck of the ferry I was on while returning from Block Island, a small island about 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island that has somehow become my ideal of a great place to live even though it's far-removed from almost everything. As a matter of fact,I have told Amanda that if I ever win the lottery that I'm buying a house out there and we're moving. She's good with that as long as we have internet and can get to the mainland for drawing supplies on a regular basis!
Maybe one of the big attractions is the fact that Block Island is far-removed (except when tourists descend like locusts in the summer) and that it's like taking a step back in time to when life was simpler. I could go for life being simpler and more serene.
