exploring we will go

 A while back we made the promise to each other to always make time to seek adventure as a family (you can read about it here). Exploration and going outside is a big part of our daily lives and once in a while I like to share a little peek into our adventures.


We are lucky enough to have a really cool shipwreck in our neck of the woods, crazy right?!? Back in 1906 the Peter Iredale, a four masted, steel vessel ran aground on the beach near Fort Stevens.

 The sea and weather has broken the ship down to its bones and over time it gets covered and uncovered by the sand. Currently a lot of the vessel is very exposed (more than I have seen over the years), especially at low tide- its truly an awesome sight to see!

I love your pictures of this shipwreck. It seems the weather is much warmer there than here in Normandy ;-) Spring is approaching but we are under the snow ;-)

Beautiful pictures. Its always fun to see your adventurous outings. it took me a while to find lucy in the first picture. Her fedora is so cute. :)

Beautiful pictures! We used to go camping at Fort Stevens in the summers when I was a kid. We'd always go out and climb on the Peter Iredale.

I love your adventure photos! They are so inspiring, especially since you have your little one along with you. I assumed that your area was much warmer than where I live because you're out all the time, but a quick search proved incorrect (I'm in Baltimore). Do you think you'd be willing to do an outfit overview on a Fashion Friday of what you wear to keep warm in the winter while walking? Thanks!

WOW, this is so much fun, even Lu loves it!. Neat to see all the architectural contrast of the steel & the blue sky :). I LOVE it when you take us out like this. TFS!.

With DH's new haircut, what does DD use to hang onto when on Daddy's shoulders?

Gorgeous. I just live up here in Seattle and I've never seen this beach before.
When your little one reaches the teen years you can still go exploring together, you'll just need to do a little bribing with food and/or gadgets. ;)

Great photos!!! I love shipwrecks!!! Your photos are all great, but I have a soft spot for the very first one with each of you peeping in your own little hole...

And you had it all just to yourselves!!!

You really picked a wonderful place to live, or rather you are very good at finding original and dreamy places to be right near home!!!

Keep on amazing my eyes!!!

So nostalgic seeing the wreck. About 10-11 years ago we camped at Fort Stevens and rode our bikes out to this beach. I have photos of my son exploring it. He was about 8 then. We enjoyed many summer vacations on that coast. We need to come up again soon. Thanks for sharing this.

What wonderful adventures your exposing Lucy to. She is a lucky little girl to have two talented, adventurous parents...and to live in that wonderland you're living!!! Of course, you and hubby are very fortunate to have such a beautiful little person to share your lives. Thank you for taking us on your journeys; I never realized how beautiful that part of America really is - I love your photography. This shipwreck it unbelievable. I looks as if it was sculpted just for sightseers!!!
