A Sea & Summer to remember....

Linking up to:  Completely Coastal

Taken from the beach of the Four Seasons Punta Mita Mexico

"I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it's because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it's because we all came from the sea.

And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears.

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came."

The beaches in Punta Mita, Mexico are on the top of my favorites list. I am linking this up to Cindy's I Owe it all to Him's weekend party on Favorite places.  

This beach is heaven on earth..with lot's of shells, coral and driftwood.

Gorgeous! I am loving the pool! I have never been to Mexico, though I am trying to talk hubby into going this winter (he has been quite a few times). Sounds like I would have a great time shelling here!

Hi Debbie,
I just found your blog today and I am so glad I did! I love the pictures, as I am an ocean lover, but live very far away! I just finished reading about the Katrina rescue workers you wrote about an the animals. It is hard to believe five years have passed. I am so thankful for the rescue workers and those who adopted so many animals. I am also a lover of dogs. I am going to order the book and can't wait to read it. Thanks for such a beautiful blog to visit! Shannon :)
