Sunrise Strokes

My daughter found her passion in rowing for crew. Despite the early hour on a weekend, we support her enthusiasm to be on the water, working hard with a team. And I've seen a few beautiful sunrises I would have otherwise missed while sleeping in.

McClure's Beach
Point Reyes National Seashore

This is a favorite beach to visit when I need to escape the crowds of city life. It's seclusion and natural beauty provide a wonderful place to relax and let go of stress, as the sounds of the waves and fresh air envelope me. On this winter day, the fog rolled in and shrouded the scene in a soft blanket of serenity. 

Thank you +Mary Gotsi  for encouraging  me to stay engaged with G+! This is the beach I mentioned that is well worth the long drive and short hike. Though I left my camera at home, and ignored my phone all day as I soaked in the view for memory, I also remembered to take a quick shot on my hike out.

With no traffic around and sunny hills of green grass and yellow blooming mustard before me, I took the opportunity to take a picture while riding my bike this weekend.

Chi Chi Sticks
Chinese Fortune Sticks

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kau_cim

After a meal to celebrate an occasion, my wife's family would bring out the Chi Chi Sticks and everyone would have their fortune told. She was recently re-united with this ancient set and the tradition was revived on Saint Patrick's Day, which happens to also be her birthday. Each player must carefully shake only one bamboo stick from the can. A number on the end of the stick corresponds to the correct fortune to read. The book has seen many years of use, but the fortunes seem to still work.

For +Know-how and traditions by +Jean-Louis LAURENCE.

And for +Jules Falk Hunter who has a similar looking, but very different game called Jack Straws, that I confused with my wife's game. I wasn't even close, except that they both inherited the game from their grandmother! Jules, I finally got around to taking the picture I promised!

Here's Jules' game of skill, taken by a skilled photographer:
