Marineland - “Behold, God is My Salvation”

“Behold, God is my salvation;
    I will trust, and will not be afraid;
for the Lord God[a] is my strength and my song,
    and he has become my salvation.

Isaiah 12:2

'Song for the Sea'


Song for the Sea
by J.R.R. Tolkien

To the Sea, to the Sea! The white gulls are crying,
The wind is blowing, and the white foam is flying.
West, west away, the round sun is falling.
Grey ship, grey ship, do you hear them calling?
The voices of my people gone before me?
I will leave, I will leave the woods that bore me;
For our days are ending and our years failing.
I will pass the wide waters lonely sailing.
Long are the waves on the Last Shore falling,
Sweet are the voices in the Lost Isle calling.
In Eressea, in Elvenhome, that no man can discover,
Where the leaves fall not: land of my people forever!

This song, sung in "The Field of Cormallen," most fully expresses Legolas' longing for the Sea and the journey to the Uttermost West. The "Last Shore" refers to the shore of Eldamar. The "Lost Isle" is Eressea, which was broken off from Middle-earth and moved to the Uttermost West as a transport for Elves by Ulmo and then left there as the eastern most island. "No man can discover [it]" because it was forbidden by the Valar.

Gathering of Clouds that No Man can Climb

I have a fascination with clouds.  No two are the same and they fill the sky with wondrous shapes and images.  Driving over the bridge to Marineland, clouds were gathering and building a tower to reach the heavenly host of which no man can climb except through the son.

A Pensive Moment for Maria

Captured a pensive moment of Maria enjoying the waves, seagulls and ocean breeze.  It was place a to be alone, a place of beauty, a place of peace, a place to embrace nature.  A beautiful picture taken at the beach on Marineland.
