365 Project – 232: From the tip of my kayak on Lake Crescent – Port Angeles, WA (August 20, 2013)

The wind had picked up and I wasn’t at all concerned about tipping over but,  I was concerned about keeping my Nikon D7000 dry while I took this shot! I protected my camera in a waterproof bag but, everytime I extracted it, the bow of my boat would veer away from center, ruining my intended composition.  At one point, I suddenly found myself  parallel to shore, with the waves crashing across my spray skirt and my boat scraping against the rocks. Quickly I raised my camera and clumsily stuffed it back into the safety of my waterproof bag, then turned back into the waves to try again to get my shot. This was probably one of the most stressful shots I’d ever captured just because of my camera-protective anxiety, but, I loved every second of it!!  🙂

365 Project – 177: Spiritually Fit Yoga (June 27, 2013)

My latest project involves launching a new blog and facebook page to share info about myself as a yoga instructor, my yoga schedule, and just anything I love that I relate to yoga.  After my recent teacher training with Baron Baptiste, I was fired up to get my business going so, with the graphic design help of my friend Kristen Johnson, I now have  http://spirituallyfityoga.com and a new facebook page is http://facebook.com/SpirituallyFitYoga.  Please stop by, check it out, and give me a *like* to help me launch this new business venture in Port Angeles, Washington. This is just one of many steps I will take to realize my dream of growing our yoga communityin my hometown.  I absolutely love yoga and am happy I have a dedicated space to share it with everyone!  Here are a handful of pics my hubby took of me in my backyard, using my Nikon D7000 . Enjoy!

365 Project – 153: Kids Marathon – Port Angeles NODM (June 2, 2013)

Yesterday was the kids marathon where kids of all ages descended upon Hollywood Beach on the Port Angeles waterfront where the kids ran their last mile together after acruing 25 miles over the last few months. Seeing the waterfront swarming with strong, healthy kids was a beautiful, joyous  scene! Kids having  fun exercising?? ♥♥♥♥♥

And, today is the actual marathon day and runners are getting a gorgeous day on the Olympic Peninsula during today’s marathon, half-marathon, 10k and relays along the North Olympic Discovery Trail.  Go runners go!! NODM marathon weekend in Port Angeles is the best!!

My hubby took these pics of me playing outside in Port Townsend during a recent yoga retreat. Yoga is my happy place, whether I’m taking or teaching class. But, doing yoga outside (sans rain!) is the best! 🙂
