Lens-Artists Challenge #57 – Taking a Break

Once a year, go somewhere you have never been beforeDalai Lama 

Tina allows us all to take a break this week, and I am just back from a lovely break together with my family. The best way for me to enjoy life!

We went to Denmark this weekend, the whole family, and watched the Danish wake-board championships together with many enthusiasts.

The weather was great, and the competitors skilled.

The only means of transport needed in summer!

Afterwards we decided to go for the sand sculpture exhibitions – and they were spectacular too. But, what I enjoyed the most, was being together with my children.

Find what brings you joy and go there. –  Jan Phillips

On coming home this afternoon, I walk in my garden, among the flowers, listening to the late summer fluttering of tiny wings.

The Painted Lady is watching me, closely.

When she turns around, I admire her intricate outfit. And I feel good.

  1. What a gorgeous post, AC, with gorgeous images. Those sand sculptures are amazing. I agree that the best way to take a break is to spend time with family. We see our son next month! I’m excited.

  2. We nurture them, and then they’re gone! And that’s how it’s meant to be. But it’s oh, so lovely to be around them again. Even just for a little while. 🙂 🙂

  3. I could take a break with that butterfly anytime. Lovely photos of your vacation with family. The sand sculptures look intriguing. 🙂

  4. It sounds like a lovely trip to Denmark and weather to match. Was anyone you know competing at the championships? Love that last photo of the butterfly in your garden. Simply beautiful.

    • So happy you enjoyed it – but there were no one we knew competing. Emma, my daughter, once used to go kneeboarding and David is a skilled skateboarder. They loved looking at the tricks.

  5. Oh my goodness A-C, this post is simply the best ever!!! What a terrific break you had. I am very envious of your time with your children, and those sand sculptures are simply amazing. Your gorgeous butterflies almost (but not quite) get lost with so much to love in this one!

    • Well – I am most certainly happy you liked it! We had some great days together, and now I am having another lovely break – in my garden. Hope you are well too.
