Haiku: Eyes so Blue

two whippets in black jackets walking onto the beach from the dunes

eyes so blue
the child’s first glimpse
of the sea

  1. Beautiful as always, Xenia. My first glimpse of the sea was at age 31 along the Oregon Coast, and I felt like a child when I saw that vast expanse of sea. It really does change a person. And I love those distant snowy peaks in the photos! Splendid! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Mike! Seeing the sea for the first time is such a special feeling and it does change you as a person. We have so many people visit here who love to sit and gaze at the water and I remember you sharing a beautiful photograph recently from your first visit to the Oregon coast – and what a glorious coast that is too! πŸΎπŸ’›πŸΎ
