A Word a Week Challenge: Roof

This week’s A Word a Week Challenge: Roof came during our annual week at the beach.  We stay at Pawleys Island, South Carolina, in a house one row off the beach, but we have a good vantage point from the widow’s walk on our roof.  My husband and I spend the “golden hours” (as I’ve learned to call them from the WordPress challenges up on that roof) so I’m sharing a couple of pictures from my little bird’s nest “up top.”

If I’m there at sunrise, this is the view I get from that widow’s walk.  I look beyond two rooflines toward the ocean at daybreak to jumpstart my day.


When I look back, I see another widow’s walk with an owl decoy standing proudly to guard his “estate” at Pawleys, the oldest seashore resort in America.


And if I direct my attention to the marsh, I look at the roofs of the porches on the docks stretching into the creek.

    You can see a lot from a roof, including the one on your own home. It’s just a matter of having a reason. 🙂

      Love getting up in the morning during our beach week and either going up on this roof or heading out to the beach. Either way, sunrise is awesome! Thanks for reading and commenting!

  3. You are blessed to wake up each morning so close to the sea with the golden sunrise to greet you with a welcoming warmth and joy. Beautiful images. Thanks.

      You are right. We are very blessed. We travel when we can afford to — to see the world but also to do it before our good health runs out and we can’t anymore! I love the blogs like yours because they help me see what I can’t get to!
