Default Photo Challenge 177 'Serenity and Peace'

Photo challenge 177 'Peace and Serenity'. What does that mean to you? Where do you find serenity? I find peace and serenity near the water and in nature. I am so blessed to live in the country, houses away from a small lake. There are wooded areas and a cottage road that goes along the lake and in the early morning, I love the peace of the lake and woods as I walk.

Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at any time!
~HAVE FUN


My photos....... the first two taken this morning on my walk. As I was standing there taking a picture of the chairs on the dock, there were large (approx. 15- 20 inches) fish jumping out of the water near the shore! Lots of ferns along the edge of the woods too.
The next photo was taken at sunset at the lake, so peaceful listening to the waves coming in. I love the sounds of the waves coming in and the seagulls..... they can wash away the cares of the day.

I don't seem to be able to view the photos properly on my phone, but I'll try to find a couple of suitable shots to fit the theme while we're still on holidays!

Sabrina, vacation time should give you some peace and relaxation, unless you are travelling a lot. Where did you go off to this time?

We're in Corfu, Greece. It's really a bit early for a holiday because it makes for a very long summer, but since we didn't get away for a proper holiday last year with my MIL in hospital May thru' September, we were more than ready for a break. And while the weather can be a bit mixed, it's a beautiful time to be here before the heat dries everything up. Everywhere we go I can smell the honeysuckle and Jasmine, and the wild herbs up on the mountains.

Here a couple of holiday photos which I hope convey peace and serenity.
There were some quite windy days when there was a lot of surf, but there were also calm days when the sea was just gently lapping the shore.
