Beach Cove

A family trip to Terranea Cove yielded some great photo ops and a lovely, relaxing time of just enjoying God’s stunning creation.IMG_5647A short hike along the beach brings you to a little nook of cliffs sheltering an active corner of the ocean.IMG_5656IMG_5659IMG_5660IMG_5672IMG_5680IMG_5685IMG_5691IMG_5708Looking out over the wider oceanIMG_5694IMG_5719We clambered through the rocks and over the cliffs, exploring and having fun.

IMG_5728The rocks we climbed up, down, and over!
There was a very cool cave that the sea would rush into and out of. We couldn’t explore further into it, but it was just like a smugglers’ cave from the movies!
I sat above these moss-covered rocks and watched the waves repeatedly cover them. The waves, both beautiful and powerful, impressed us with their reflection of our Creator God.IMG_5779IMG_5783

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;

Then the channels of the sea were seen,
The foundations of the world were uncovered
At Your rebuke, O Lord,
At the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.

He sent from above, He took me;
He drew me out of many waters.

The Lord lives!
Blessed be my Rock!
Let the God of my salvation be exalted.

~ Psalm 18:2, 15-16, 46 ~
