I’m fighting the wanderlust today. I’d love to be back in Port Townsend, exploring that town and the surrounding Olympic Peninsula. I get lost in the images in Paris In Color and long to visit that city. There is a list of place names I have been hearing lately (Italy, Bali, Kenya . . .) that sound exotic or beautiful or fascinating and, as Liz Lemon would say, “I want to go to there.”
Then I stop and take a look around. I am lucky enough to live in a place that lots of other people dream of visiting. When I think of the various sites that are available to me within a day-trip of my driveway, I can’t help but feel lucky. The grass is green right here.
These images are of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse near Half Moon Bay. I love lighthouses.
I decided to convert this image to black-and-white. I don’t think they have lighthouses in Kansas, but this cottage with that sky reminds me of the Wizard of Oz. Do you see it?
Do you have favorite local places you like to visit when the wanderlust strikes?
