Sunsets and More

Another "this and that" post. As promised, more sunsets - starting with a particularly special one.

In Remembrance

My beautiful grandma, Isabel Bongey, passed away on March 8th. I don't really have the words to express how wonderful she was or how much I miss her, so I won't try to fit it into the sphere of this blog. On the evening she left us, I escaped to the beach to watch the sunset alone. To think of her and picture her looking down on this same sunset from heaven, with her precious Savior, her beloved husband, and all the others who had been eagerly awaiting her arrival.

You are deeply missed, Maw Maw, but we celebrate your life and rejoice at your homecoming. Well done, good and faithful servant.

Sunset and Chicken

Last Friday Brent and I decided to do a little dinner on the beach after work. The plan was to be all healthy and get salads from the grocery salad bar, but one look at that and we quickly changed our minds. Plan B - rotisserie chicken which came highly recommended by the lady in the meat department. No side dishes, no forks...just chicken.

Hey, I didn't say this would be pretty.

Luckily we had this big body of water nearby to wash our hands.

This white cloud hung above the sunset. Brent said it looked like a shell, later we agreed it resembled fish bones.

Leaving Governor's Beach, I turned around to snap one last shot...

The Definition of "Comfortable"

Whoa - I wish this is what Walter does when we say "play dead," but no, this is just a regular afternoon nap. He opened his eyes once I started taking pictures, but don't worry, he didn't feel the need to move an inch.

Sleep on, dog.

Island living can be exhausting.


  1. Beautiful photos! Makes me miss the beach town where I grew up.

    And so funny, our dog does the same thing!

  2. So sorry about your Grandma, Katie. Glad you got to celebrate your memories of her and the promise you will see her again under those beautiful skies.

  3. Loved the sunset God gave you the evening Maw-Maw died. So glad you captured it. Beautiful, memorable...a gift from Him!
