Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows (Different views for different moods)

I love looking out windows at the vistas beyond. My home looks on the constantly changing, forever beautiful views of Puget Sound.  Looking through a window always reminds me of the security of being inside, and the potential of being out in the world beyond my window.  Here are a few of my favorites. Hope you enjoy!

I think I shared this first photo once before, in another post. However, it never gets old. This first window is the view from a bathroom window, in a small restaurant in Barbados. I wanted to lock the door and just stay there, where blue water surrounded me, the sound of waves lapping was soothing and close, and sweet island music played in the distance. Perfect to push away the cold, winter blahs.

Next  is a view from my car window crossing the US-Canada border at the Peace Arch, WA state-BC, Canada. I love this sculpture (read more about it here). It surprises me each time I see it, and sends my imagination in all kinds of directions. Birds play and nest in the complex, tangled metal, and my thoughts always soar through the open window of the structure and disappear for a few minutes. Huge trees, the river that rushes beside them, appear tiny, from so high above.
