Photos of the Week: June 25

Oh, sweet summer sunshine!

Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Beach time! Miss O is very good at collecting crabs. Apparently, she wanted to look at a dozen of them up close before letting them go. Thank goodness they didn’t end up all over her face or down her clothes…

A foggy morning view and a sunny morning view of the Space Needle.

Fountains and cotton candy – nothing better!

I was given the gift of a float in a sensory deprivation tank. It was just 10 inches of water, a bag (or so) of Epsom salt, me and my thoughts. At first I thought, “I’m going to do this for an hour?” and then I fell asleep. I was hoping for a conversation with God or major epiphany and while that didn’t happen, it felt like I’d been rebooted like a computer.

How was your week?

  1. Those beach photos are just so calming and adorable! Never heard of a sensory deprivation tank before. Very cool and it sounded very relaxing! Have a nice weekend!

  2. For what it’s worth Wynne, this ole duffer would suggest you continue you continue to ‘soak’ in the sensory saturation of your precious children’s uninhibited joy before ‘structured’ adulthood all too soon diminishes it . Afterward there will be time to soak in the sensory deprivation of empty nest Epsom salts.

  3. There was a tipping point for me when My kids kept me young. Now kids make me feel older. You are not there. However, seeing pictures of the kids makes me feel younger. how does that work?? Fun times.

  4. LOL, love me some Epsom salt baths! Never tried it with that much though! Your daughter may be a future Marine Bio;ogist with her fascination for sea life?!

  5. It’s wonderful that your kids have so many interesting spaces to explore and feed their curiosity! Kudos to you for floating in a sensory deprivation tank. I prefer rebooting in the outdoors, far from confined dark spaces πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, Natalie! I wondered about claustrophobia too. I have it mildly but the tank is big enough (and in the one I was in you could leave the door open if you wanted) that it didn’t even spark a tinge of it.


    1. It certainly is a memorable spot on the skyline. My daughter was in a camp at Seattle Center last week and it was fun to be in the neighborhood for a lot of different views of the Space Needle!
