Sometimes it seems like we’ll never get there.
We walk and walk and walk.
We even do some climbing.
And then there is even more to do.
But maybe it wasn’t about going to sea at all.
Perhaps it was all about the journey…
…and feeling the sand on your toes…
and the wind in your hair…
Enjoy the journey.
The Little Plastic Bears will have their own website some day. They’ve been to Washington DC, the Grand Canyon and Grandma’s Bed & Breakfast! They never have enough space in their tiny apartment and vacations are essential to their well-being.
Here are a couple sneak peek photos from their ballooning adventure at the beach last summer. As usual, blue bear isn’t following safety rules. Good thing there is masking tape or he would have fallen out of the basket!

This fall, the Little Plastic Bears will have their grandest adventure yet. They are going to Japan! Stay tuned.
As the sun set, she carefully positioned the Little Plastic Bears on the ship’s deck. The HMS Endeavour, a British Royal Navy research vessel from the 1700’s was the perfect vessel for The Bear’s maiden voyage at sea.
Sunset Beach, North Carolina, September 2012.
Eventually, the Little Plastic Bears will have their own website, where you can follow all their grand adventures. In the meantime, you can enjoy their debut here.
We stayed at Sunset Beach in North Carolina for a week last September. We’ve visited plenty of times over the years but for the first time ever, we saw the kind of sunset for which the island got its name.
There are no words to describe the glorious colors and beauty. It literally took my breath away. Please click each image to see it large. At the top left of the photo will be the original size. Click that number link to see the full size photo. And then imagine this scene filling all the space and sky in front of you, with the constant and rhythmic whoosh as each wave washes ashore, frothed in color.
These photos were all taken the same evening. The colors stretched across the sky, from shades of pink and blue in the east to vibrant oranges and yellows in the west and changed by the minute. I can not believe that the beauty displayed on this earth is by chance, but rather by the artistic hand of the Creator of the Universe.
