All Things Alaska – #3
White waves roar rolling
in on rock strewn dark sand shore
evening sky day bright.
Accomplishment – standing on Alaska beach
the impossible made possible.
To bask in an afternoon sun
when others are in dark dusk or night
to listen to the rolling drum like cadence
of white waves rising from deep blue bay
to gaze on the line of misty dark and
snow capped peaks
to know home is here in Homer.
Black dog chases gulls
galloping freely with abandon
joyful thrilling chase.
On Bishops Beach
first clear blue sky sunshine day
in over a week.
Old Believers couple
pose for photographs.
Young woman with hair uncovered
and white flower on side of hair,
photographer assistant wears
thin heel sandels
both in flowing colorful satin dresses
bright sea shells on the dark rock.
Speeding trucks, four wheelers
ATV turns wheelies in the sand.
Little girl splashes water with boots
dog chases stick
prances gingerly through water
Lovely words…brings back many memories of my childhood and teenage years! We lived in Kenai, Kodiak, and Anchorage for a time before moving down to Wrangell, and drove through Homer on our way to the Al-Can Highway.
Coastal Alaskan towns are beautiful.
Thanks. So very true of the beauty here.
Powerful images of nature, beauty, and everyday life all flowing together.
Thanks Carol, it is a wonderful flow.
That’s a summer walk filled with life – beautiful!
