Photo Challenge: Mine

In the movie How to Marry a Millionaire, the character Loco (Betty Grable) falls in love with Eben (Rory Calhoun) because he tells her all the surrounding area is “his” land. Actually, he’s a forest ranger.

That’s the way I feel about the places I visit. They are mine. It’s especially how I feel at the ocean.

I am a very rich person because I can go to these places – and that many people work to make them available to all of us.

  1. And I, Lynn (& Mike), rarely if ever travel to these places, but I find a similar sense of “ownership” enjoying your posts & photos…thank you!

  2. Beautiful scenery! That first photo especially is gorgeous! I feel a sense of ownership for some of these places too. Now if we could get everyone to feel that way!!!

  3. All three of the photos are of wonderful places so familiar to me. I grew up in the shadow of Mt. Tam in Mill Valley. I’ve recently had the pleasure of sharing the walk around the top with several friends. And Jenner: my husband and I have been doing lots of kayak paddling there this summer. We moved away for 10 years and couldn’t wait to get back to enjoy all these places!! Thanks for articulating what so many feel.
