Today I’m participating in Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme photo challenge. This week’s theme is “peaceful”. It’s taken me a few days to get to this challenge because I was thinking about the types of photos I would use. I settled on a water theme because I find water very peaceful in many ways, whether it’s still or moving, quiet or loud. I hope you enjoy my choices!

Standing in front of the ocean is peaceful and refreshing at the same time.
What’s under water can be very peaceful too. That’s why I like visiting aquariums. One of my favorite underwater animals is the seahorse. I love how seahorses peacefully swim from one plant to the next.
Sea jellies look very peaceful and I love looking at them. However taking photos of sea jellies is not very relaxing, as only a few usually come out OK.
As noisy as they can be, I love sitting by waterfalls and enjoy their peaceful and stress-free effect.
Animals in ponds often look very peaceful, like this painted turtle who moved and swam very slowly and quietly.
I want to finish this theme with a photo that illustrates a beautiful, peaceful sound (out of the water). This is my brand new wind chime in my garden. I just got it this weekend after searching for the perfect wind chime for years, the one with the most peaceful sounds to my years. This is it and I love it!
