By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols, but the Lord made the heavens.
During the summer, we enjoy escaping to Semiahmoo. About a half hour drive from our home brings one to a beautiful county park overlooking Blaine Bay and Mount Baker to the east and the Puget Sound to the west. There is a great walking trail or you can walk out on the beach. It is so fun to be able to head over after dinner to catch a sunset on nice warm days. This summer we also discovered the fun of low tide. We enjoyed a mid-day lunch adventure and enjoyed observing starfish, sand dollars and other sea creatures, watching amazing eagles and other birds. We were able to sneak in a few visits over the summer. Part of the time, the harbor seals were right close to the walkway and enjoyed giving us a show.
