The Girl and the Sea

I’ve been looking through old pictures tonight. They are such incredible treasures, and I love having them all at my fingertips. There are so many I wanted to share, but I decided on this one. My brother took it in 2005 when we were taking a trip up the coast, all the way to Vancouver. He cracked me up for most of the trip by taking only pictures of the back of me, “for scale,” as he explained it, so everyone would understand just how big those waterfalls were. This picture is sort of a rarity in that you can see a tiny bit of my face. We found Mendocino foggy and cold, but the seascapes were gorgeous. It’s hard to believe that this was seven years ago. My, how the time flies. I’d like to think that in some ways I am still the same girl, in awe of the world around me. I hope I never lose that. And I hope I can take some more trips with my brother. He is one of the world’s greatest travel companions. And not just because he actually likes to drive, but because he has a limitless love for adventure, a never-ending collection of great music, and and the most unexpected hilariousness when you really need it, on mile 1,294. Love you, brother.
