For my birthday week, we’re renting a house in Bretagne (Brittany). It’s one of my favorite regions in France and although I’ve been here a few times before, it never gets old — there’s still a lot to explore! We’re out by Quimper this time, and aside from the rain on New Year’s Eve, we’re having a nice, relaxing trip.
With 2013 upon us, I figured pictures of the ocean were fitting. Water washes away the old and reveals something new. It’s refreshing, calming and awe-inspiring.
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved the ocean. I’m not a big beach goer, but something about the ocean draws me in. Even seeing rough surf during the winter makes me feel at ease. I love it all — where I grew up going to the boardwalks and rides of New Jersey’s beach towns, and places I’ve visted such as the rocky cliffs of Ireland’s coast and the tropical waters in the Caribbean.
