The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O Lord, endures forever ~ do not abandon the works of Your hands. Psalms 138:8

White Rock beach

(click on photos for a closer look)
Okay, so if I told you this photo was taken in some romantic faraway place....Laguna Beach.....Puerto Vallarta....or Daytona might just believe me.
But right here just 20 minutes drive from my home is the lovely beach community of White Rock.
This was the place that both of Bob's parents were raised. They lived across the street from each other, fell in love and on December 31, half way through Rosie's grade 12, they were married in the 1st United Church office in Vancouver. They eventually subdivided the Cook land into 10 lots and sold them for very little....Dad said they didn't make hardly anything by the time the dust settled on the deal. The property was south of Buena Vista Drive on Cook Street (named for G-ma's family ) now re-named Kent Street. Oh, to have just one of those view lots now!
We spent a terrific afternoon on Sunday with my bro and SIL. We walked all the way down from their house to the sandcastle competition on the beach. We caught a gospel concert, had an ice cream cone, and walked back up the hill (paralysis set in the next day). As I was taking photos, my brother said "Blog this...three months almost to the day....this guy, a heart patient, walked to White Rock and back"....pretty amazing. We are very thankful for the great progress that Ken has made.....he's almost back to normal, and able to complain (always a good sign!).

Hope you are able to take time to walk in the blessed
