Life is a gift, given in trust – like a child. – Anne Morrow Lindbergh

I could not remember how many times I’ve read the book, Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh but I remember the times when her words consoled me and lifted my spirits. I even blogged about her a year ago. Kindly read  She Speaks For Me.

At times,  words are enough to make you feel happy and contented but there is a different kind of happiness when you recall  places that made so much impression on you.  I was reviewing all the pictures I took for the past three or four years using my digital camera and then I saw these series of shots that made me smile, pictures of Pundaquit Beach in San Antonio, Zambales.  That was two years ago, a few months before I found out I had colon cancer.  And the only thing closest to spending another journey to the beach was last December when we went to Maxine By the Sea in Lucap, Alaminos City, Pangasinan to have lunch. The place faces the famous Hundred Islands.

I would love to share with you the  lovely gifts that I found while I was uploading these pictures – peace of mind, serenity, happiness, an awesome feeling of bliss and a profound respect for nature.

I wonder how many secrets  you are harboring in your bosom,  I whispered something but you probably didn’t hear.

I love the play of light here, where ocean meets the sky.

And it gives you peace that you will never find in the city.

This is my favorite shot! I watched them steering the small boat, serenely gliding through..what a life!
