Treasures Untold

On the shoreline she offers her soul

Some may see her as broken

But there is one

Her beauty infuses into the depths of another

Claiming the energy of the natural spirit and the treasures untold 

The one

My Version of Picasso

Some-time(s) everything comes together to just happen. That moment and realization of that is profound. “It” stops you and infuses a peace, a joy, recognition of a special place, time, and feeling. Often leaving you bewildered and curious, beyond measure or understanding. That inspiration and motivation that life is amazing and beautifully unique to me!

Visiting the museum on the weekend of the Decoy Auction, 2013Oct, had a chance to capture a couple images, of thousands, that represent the history and culture of the area, the people and the culture of the Core Sound. (

As I am not the expert, so here is a link to a reputable website with cultural, arts and historical reference and details:

Sunday Shorelines

Ever have one of those lazy Sunday afternoons? The kind where you don’t get out of bed until after noon, throw your favorite hole-y jeans or shorts and a t-shirt on, you meander down to the beach for a walk along the shore?

The air is cooling, as it is fall. The Atlantic waters hinting a touch of warmth. Shells threaded down the shoreline. The walk is refreshing and calming. Sandpiper, gulls and pelicans actively seeking food. Late vacationers sprinkle the sand wondering where the sun has gone.

The ocean and her shore keep us balanced. Water, sand (earth), air, species – it all coexists, ebbs and flows with time creating its majestic beauty and memories. I am grateful and seek to have more “lazy Sundays” in my life!

Sea Foam

Is it the breath of the ocean? The foam that remains painting the shoreline…filled with the remains, the breath…

Lori Harris Photography

According to derived from sources such as the offshore breakdown of algal blooms. These compounds can act as surfactants or foaming agents. As the seawater is churned by breaking waves in the surf zone adjacent to the shore, the presence of these surfactants under these turbulent conditions traps air, forming persistent bubbles that stick to each other through surface tension.

In the Sands of Time

Ever turn down a road and realize you really do not know if you are headed in the right direction? And then, you happen upon and discover something interesting, historical and cool? Or you have drove past it a million times and never really paid any attention?

Well, today I did all of that! The Topsail Towers are erected along the shoreline in Topsail Island (On the boarder of Surf City) North Carolina.

Abandoned yet profound and glorified by the Carolina Blue skies and the stunning blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

I wondered and pondered who might have lived or worked in this building, and contemplated why they are up and down Topsail Beach.
