my new addiction

I have always had a fascination with all things dealing with the sea. Perhaps it started when I spent many summers in Salem, Massachusetts with my grandparents. Hanging at the beach and then when I was older going on many whale watches and harbor cruises.

Here is the boat my sister, nephew and I took out of Gloucester on the "Perfect Storm" Ride. Yes that is how they advertised it. :)

And there is my love for lighthouses... I believe this came about from my faith as I have grown up hearing the phrase that Jesus is my Lighthouse. As I have grown older, I know this is true and the beacons of light hold a more special place to my heart.

I have said this to say...... My new addiction is all the wonderful nautical, beach and ocean blogs out there in blog world. It's a whole new world I never knew existed. Here are a few of my favorites.

So please check out my new addictions and let em know what ya think....

God bless, Deb

Debbie - I love lighthouses - even though I live far away from the beach. (There is one or two on the Texas coast, but I'm a good distance away).

I bought a calendar for my office this year that has pictures of lighthouses and scripture. I can look at it from my windowless office, enjoy a beautiful scene, and remember the True Light.

Blessings to you today!
