After returning home last evening and looking at my pictures
I realized this road trip was much about flowing waters.
Starting in Spokane, Washington with the river flowing through
the center of the city, I was astounded by the pure power of the flow.
The power of standing just above on the bridge filled my heart with JOY.
Then there were smaller flows, but beautiful in their own way.
This was found in the Japanese Gardens in Spokane.
The immensity of the Grand Coulee Dam.
I couldn't even see the water flowing down that wall until
I peered through the binoculars.
Can you believe it spans 1 mile from end to end.
Here is part of the Columbia River that continues it's flow
all the way to my home.
The Chief Joseph Dam was not too far down the highway.
Then on leaving Leavenworth, Washington we had to pause
and enjoy the beauty of the flow in those beautiful surroundings.
This was a different river, Wenatchee River.
As we drove closer to Seattle we stopped to savor the Snoqualmie Falls.
Isn't it spectacular?
Oh the sound of so much water flowing nearby was capturing
our senses and such JOY to see.
So before heading home we stopped for some still water, some quietness.
This was at the Glass Museum in Tacoma, Washington.
It sits right next to a river too.
We picnicked nearby and enjoyed the quiet of the day.
But yes, there was flowing waters from a teapot along the way.
Another day I will share more of tea time on the road.
When you travel do you find sometimes a theme to the trip?
"the power of the flow" really resonated with me on this road trip.
Water invigorates my soul
The energy flows
It surrounds me
And I laugh with JOY.
We grow in it's arms
Our thirst is quenched
Life becomes the flow
and we rejoice.
