Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon


The picture above was taken during a Light House tour along the shores of New Jersey. If you’ve been a long time subscriber, you’ll probably remember the blog I wrote about where during this boat trip, we got caught between three terrible storms. Looking left of the horizon, you can see a storm brewing. There was lightening everywhere and the boat was rocking side to side whilst battling the huge waves. It certainly was an adventure; even the captain of the small boat said he never seen anything quite like that during any of his outings. I was positive we were going to become a real life “Gilligan’s Island” crew after that day. It was nice to sleep in my warm bed that same night because I was soaked from head to toe for several hours.


This was taken at a park by my house. You get pretty nice sunsets there.


This little tree just happened to capture my attention.


Oh, look! It’s a random photo that has nothing to do with Horizon! I wanted to include this picture anyways in spirit of the “Gravity” movie review I did earlier. This was taken at the Kennedy Space Center down in Florida. You can see this astronaut when you enter the facility.

Some vacation pictures

Hello friends,

Here are some pictures from vacation as promised. I was using my mom’s camera as I forgot mine at home.

This was shot during the dolphin and whale cruise. Can you see the two fins by the boat?

We were ending our cruise when I saw these clouds. They just looked so majestic.

On this cruise, we saw a gorgeous sunset which resembled a pacman. The dolphins had moved on as we cruised  back to land.

On the boardwalk at Ocean City. I love the lights of the ferris wheel as the sky gets darker.

Here are the friendly pirates I ran into while shopping at the gift store.

While walking around the village where the Pirate Festival occurred, I came across an old red barn house. The leaves framed the wood.

I love this picture. This was to the left of the red barn house. I love the hint and peekaboo of Autumn leaves.

These were hanging up and I just liked the texture of it. The colors intrigued me as well.

“Come hither sheep!”.   I was trying to bond with the sheep when the mysterious pirate with the unique accent walked up to me.

Adventure Boy and his best friend. AB liked being the shepard and bossing his little pet around.

“Haha! Now you’re the little pig!” AB’s friend joked.
