The Pilgrim

The Pilgrim is a replica tall ship docked in the Dana Point Harbor since 1981. It is open for tours and you can even stay overnight. I did so as a kid and had a great time. Arrr matey.

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent – John 17:3

Lincoln Park Stroll

Here’s one from Lincoln Park in West Seattle taken last January.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world – John 16:33

Maligne Lake Monochrome

Here’s a black and white long exposure shot from Spirit Island on Maligne Lake, Canada. Awesome place.

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. – John 15:13

Sunrise at the Jetty

Sunrise from the jetty at the Dana Point Harbor. Before the jetty was built in the 60s, the beach here (Doheny) was a popular surf spot so much so that it was mentioned in the Beach Boys song Surfin’ USA. And that’s your useless fact for the day.

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. – John 15:7

Longmire Administrative Building

Here’s one taken of the Longmire Administration Building on Christmas Eve. Great area to snowshoe around if you don’t feel like driving all the way to the top. You can catch the Rampart Ridge Trail right near here.

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing – John 15:5

Winter in Snoqualmie

We attempted a snowshoe up at Denny Creek back in January but by the time we got there (around noon) the place was packed and we couldn’t find a parking spot. So, we headed up to Snoqualmie Ski Mountain and that place was a zoo. We ended up snowshoeing a little bit around the Nordic track. The kids had fun playing in the snow but it wasn’t what I really had in mind. We did however check out Gold Creek which is near where I took this shot. The Gold Creek area looked like a much better place to snowshoe around. Next time we need to get there a lot earlier. Live and learn.

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful – John 15:1-2

Lincoln Park Sun

Here’s one from a chilly January Sunday at Lincoln Park in West Seattle. You can’t pass up a sunny day in the winter.

“Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them” – John 14:21
