New Beachcombing Norm

Ah.....Michael is home and we had a great afternoon with him. We picked him up, ran to the chapel to "work on a few things," came home, picked up Jared and then went beach combing - which means we showed the local tsunami damage to Bre.

Road to the Miss Veedol Swim Beach - gone

Mountains of sand has been taken from the harbor - and the work continues 3 months later.

Acres of pine trees along the shoreline are dying....sad.

As debris fields move to shore there is no telling what you'll find....we wonder if some of this will find it's way to OR and WA by next year.  We find less sea glass. 

Pipes used to be buried about 5 feet under

Spot where the sea wall was breached

House beams on the beach

Dresser fronts 

A rice bowl Mike found filled with the glass I found today.

Smiling as I remember, Renee. I wonder if her pedi has lasted....think I'll have to go get a new one soon....but I like looking down and remembering a friendly afternoon. 

Yeah - we'll try ANY road....Bre commented if Homer, AK was the END OF THE ROAD....this must be the BEGINNING OF THE ROAD! 

Choosing Joy!

It's sure interesting to see the Japan landscape three months after the earthquake. No one even talks about it anymore (Joplin tornado and flooding took the headlines!) But I remember Mt. St. Helens, and all the new vegetation that sprouted almost immediately and the healing of the land as time went on. Japan will recover, even if it's different.

I like Lois's comment about the healing of the land. I think people are most often the same--after something traumatic, a gradual healing process begins.
