I spent a several lovely hours at a nearby beach today, with two of my good friends. It was wonderful to spend time with the ocean, and with my friends. I also visited a new age shop, admiring the beautiful items on display – lapis lazuli, malachite, Celtic design jewelry, handmade boxes – and learned about the Ringing Cedars series from the store owner. At the store selling fair-trade items from India, Nepal, and Tibet, I bought small Lungta (Wind Horse) prayer flags and a sketching pencil shaped like a branch for my father as a father’s day gift. I’m ignoring the fact that the day ended with me realizing I have a tremendous sun burn xD (I swear I put sunscreen on! SPF 50!)
As per my usual way of celebrating any event, place, or person, I had my camera and took far too many photos. Here are some of the better ones.
