A glimpse of home, especially during long, hard winter months, warms the heart and the soul. It makes one appreciate what we have even more.

On this particular day, I was hiking along the north shore sea cliff with my dog Pokahu. I found this neat little ledge that I was able to get to, and started taking pictures. As I scanned the terrain for photo ops, I thought how neat it would be if I could get a shot of myself looking down with the cliffs as a background. I put the camera on the tripod and set the timer for 10 seconds and scrambled over to the pre designated spot. I think it took two or three shots to get the one I wanted. I lost my lens cap there that day. It ended up going over the edge.
