My temporary professed brothers and I headed to the Marie Joseph Spiritual Center in Biddeford Pool, Maine, for a day of recollection on Oct. 27-29, 2017. It was relaxing to get away from academics for a weekend.
After Mass on the 28th, I ventured with my camera from the retreat house to a rocky beach nearby. I had hoped to photograph something cool on the beach. I found nothing, but the crashing waves were soothing. I closed my eyes to absorb the sound.
Walking back, the fall colors were past peak and the trees looked drab and gray. But I peered down and saw this splash of color.
I snapped a few pictures before heading back. God still surprises me.
