Thursday’s Special: Traces of the Past

Paula says: Traces of the Past is a recurrent photo challenge that happens every month (one month in colour as part of Thursday’s Special and the following month in black and white as part of Black & White Sunday). You are free to choose whatever traces of the past you can find. It does not have to be a distant one, or rich in history; it can be something personal, or it can even have a human form. Just make sure to post for it before next Thursday and to link to this blog. Happy Thursday!

Stately old homes in towns on the New Jersey Shore. Traces of the past well preserved.

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

Waking up, for starters, and then watching the sunrise over the ocean as I did on Monday. 

Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world…..

Home first, then the beach

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)?

Lauri- she lived 2 houses away and we were inseparable. By the time we were teenagers we went separate ways, hung out with different crowds. We reconnected a few years ago on Facebook and got together which was really nice.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. Watching this video of a 5 year old who loves to surfboard

Another day at the beach and more antics from the local seagulls. This guy actually went into someone’s bag that had been left unattended and made off with a bag of chips. He dropped it and someone returned it to the bag, but he went back and took it out again. I couldn’t stop laughing watching him persevere.

What made you smile?
