boardwalk

IMG_5417

boardwalks are common in many alaskan villages, especially ones without roads (the tundra freezes in the winter but is soft and mushy in the summer...sometimes dangerously so)  


similar to a main street, a lot happens on these board-roadways

this is perhaps one of my favorite pictures...a purple bike and your dog


does a girl need anything more? (photo taken at midnight!)

the boardwalk makes for a firm foundation, amidst tundra cotton, when offering piggybacks

meet and greets happen on the boardwalk!

i snapped this photo of kids' shoes as we all played because when all is said and done, we're all basically the same  {every kid had on similar tennis shoes!}  


no matter where we live or what we eat or what language we speak we are, deep down, simply...people.  


I love when God reminds me of that.

Wonderful photos, Cathy! I imagine that boardwalk is a necessity with that mushy ground. Love the photo of the child, bike and dog.

Why is it, that the whole time I am reading about the boardwalk, along with the lovely music, my mind is singing "Under the Boardwalk". Fun song. Seriously beautiful photos, and I like the tennis shoes pict, you speak the truth, we are all His creation in the end, waiting for salvation and HIS love.

These are really beautiful, Cathy.

I love the concept of the boardwalk, and it makes a beautiful backdrop for your pictures.
