~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #57: Taking A Break ~

Being the in-house barista and omelette-chef in our home, it is always a welcome break to be treated to brunch. 


When we stay on Long Beach, we often go to Bailey’s Bakery & Cafe in Nahcotta.


Some folks consider walking a chore, an inconvenience. Not me! To walk anywhere in nature, and especially along the shoreline at Long Beach, is one of my favorite ways to break away from the 24/7 routine and renew myself.

Even ardent walkers need a break now and then!


Jello likes to rest in the shade, as we finish our walk at the dog park!

Being among friends in a relaxing atmosphere with no immediate demands, is an interlude I cherish.


In the above photo, Creighton and our friend Stephan solve the worlds problems, while enjoying wine at Beach Haven, Orcas Island.


I love this photo that dear friend Jocelyn took when Creighton and I visited her at Priest Lake. Here we are toasting being together at Elkin’s Resort.

    Jello is definitely the star in this one Lindy 😊. And my husband’s name is Bailey so I loved your opening shot of course! All great choices for this week’s challenge.

    Hi, Lindy. Dogs definitely know how to take a break! I think they’re masters of it. 🙂 I love your silhouette shot and the glasses.

    Superb. I’m the home barista, but I do sunny-side up. (Yeah, Jello! You go dog!!)
