open spaces.

yesterday fred and i went on a boat excursion that left from the west coast of the island at puerto de tazacorte. we spent 4 hours way out in the atlantic. we came in close to shore to peek in pirate caves and swim for a while...but spent the rest of the time venturing out at sea. it was the most beautiful day...the sea was so calm and the water was so warm. the sun was smiling upon us :)

"either we are adrift in chaos or we are individuals, created, loved, upheld and placed purposefully, exactly where we are. can you believe that? can you trust God for that?" -elisabeth elliot

I've known that Thoreau quote for awhile...love it. :) The pictures you posted of the water and surrounding land are beautiful. I am sufficiently jealous.
