13 Wonderstruck Moments

These are forever stuck in my brain. Fortunate me for having seen them. :-)

  • The first sight of Venice, all full of light, wonder, and history, as I walked out of the train station.
  • Snorkeling among the fish off Maui.
  • The sunrise splattering unto good friend Jennifer and me.
  • The sunsets at Ocean Beach in San Francisco.
  • The red rose in bloom on our balcony as the First Husband was dying.
  • The sparkle-sparkle pink notebook I received in an office Christmas gift exchange.
  • Puuhonua O Honaunau National Historic Park on the Big Island of Hawaii where in ancient times warriors made their way to the Honaunau Bay shores to seek refuge from battles they lost.
  • Thunderstorms in the Southwest. Oh my!
  • The Grand Canyon.
  • Driving through a granite walled mountain pass. Anytime.
  • Driving over the Mississippi River.
  • Newborn babies. Tiny fingers, tiny feet, unconditional love.

It's Thursday 13. Come check out other bloggers' 13  with me. 

Update: I'm also linking up with I Like Thursday, hosted by LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color. Be sure to check out LeeAnna and the other bloggers. 


  1. I have babies and Grand Canyon in common. Lot's of other stuff.... let me think! Maybe swimming in a phosphorescent bay in Puerto Rico.

    1. Ooooh, I like the idea of swimming in a phosphorescent bay.

  2. Awesome likes. How about that secret sunset you just happen to spy when you look up and you were busy? What is it so awe inspiring about crossing the Mississippi? The Grand Canyon, one of my favorite places on earth. How about a spouting horn at the coast during a stormy sea? My mom just shared picture as they were doing a wee get away at the Oregon coast.

    1. Yes, yes to the secret sunset, Siouxzq! I got goosebumps crossing the Mississippi, twice. I suppose it was because I read about the Mississippi River so much in history books and saw it on maps when I was a kid that to finally see it, was simply wow!

  3. Those are great moments to remember.

    1. Writing the list, I realize how I have traveled more than I thought. :-)

  4. "The red rose in bloom on our balcony as the First Husband was dying." I think that will stick in my brain too. Wonderful list.

    1. Somehow that blooming rose helped make the First Husband's passing a serene and tranquil process. Not surreal (that came later), but real.

  5. Wonderful moments and memories. Take care, enjoy your day!

  6. These make me happy.
    Coffee is on and stay safe
