Monica, Thank you for the picture!
Ladies, I am keeping you on your honor to keep things peaceful for the next week.. Going to be traveling a bit and just not sure I will be able to post. Here is a picture to keep it going while I am gone.
Columbia River Gorge
The pictures are fantastic. Thanks for posting. And double thanks to those of you who note the location of the photos so that I can plan my next 5 vacations!! That really helps.
georgie, I love the Columbia River Gorge!! For years I had a Sierra Club calendar page tacked to my cork board at work with a photo from there. Later when I married DH#2 he took me there and I was in total heaven!! That place is so calming and soothing to me!
Looking at the Virginia countryside from Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.
I am not a great picture-taker but- A winter fountain with bubbling water and plants in NCAL Great place to site and contemplate
Public park in Oriasi Town, Aomori Prefecture, Japan
The Pacific Ocean seen from the east coast of Japan near Hachinohe. I can sit and listen to waves breaking all day. I find it very peaceful to listen to.
Sea of Stars on Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives.
Ruth, what a gorgeous picture! There's so much light in this country, we hardly ever see more than 1-2 stars.
Wren, The only thing that keeps us from seeing a sky full of stars here are the couds that darken they sky all too often. We are surrounded by vacation homes and vacant lots. No street lights--so very peaceful and beautiful.
Oh my goodness Ruth. Thanks for the ocean & stars.
Ladies- LOVE the water theme of the recent pics!
grammaB- yes the Gorge is such a special place of peace for me!
Kathindc- fabulous picture of the Pacific in Japan. Hope to get there someday.
Ruth- really love that shot. Water is so calming.
Wyo- finding a special place to meditate sounds like a plan for me.
Thank you ladies for posting beautiful peaceful pictures - I'm not sure you would call where I am peaceful, but in my heart it is. Will be gone playing with these two and working from their place until next monday, when I travel home. If I can get a pretty evening picture through the trees here, I will otherwise, you all keep up the good work! Remember - this is peaceful, not outwordly, but inwardly

GMA, your grandchildren are beautiful. Just looking at those smiles warms my heart.

Along the Highline trail Glacier National Park
Beautiful. I like that there are trees, but not so many they block the view of everything else.
This one is my personal photo for me to use and remember, Holland
I love these, ladies! Keep 'em coming!
Ruth - I'm guessing redwoods? Where was this taken?
