Goodbye, Summer.

Summer and early morning walks on the beach go hand in hand for me. As we say goodbye to summer, come with me for one last stroll along the Rhode Island coastline. We’re walking along a piece of coastline only a mile or two east of where the SeaMount series is set. Breathe deeply. There’s a tang of salt in the air.

  8. Hey Anita!
    Love the pics, I love taking pics as well! LOL PhD camera, I’ll have to tell my family that one!! I’m currently saving up for a slr digital camera, but most likely I’ll just leave it on auto 🙂 Looking forward to this second book! God bless you, I broke my heel last Oct. moving a fridge and I’ve never been so thankful I can walk and walk without pain! Thank you Jesus! Reading was a great pastime while I healed and I’ve probably read Out of the Wilderness maybe 3-4 times, thank you for sharing your gift of writing. God Bless you and your family 🙂

    • Oh Joan! Can’t imagine the pain of a broken heel. If my feet aren’t happy, I’m not happy! I purchase my shoes a smidge on the large size so there is no pinching or squeezing. Pinching and squeezing makes me grumpy. 🙂

      I’m so happy you enjoyed Gray’s story and have reread it. (3-4 times- holy cow! 🙂 )

      Watch here for the announcement of INTO THE DEEP’s availability. I’m looking at the first part of October. Yay!

      Have a great day.
