About Me

I am a consumate crafter. I knit, quilt both sane and crazy, scrapbook, bead, mosaics and any other thing I can think of along the way. Someday I also hope to do real glass jewelery and stained glass but those have to wait until I have room and more time.

Beach and more Beach..

Day 2 dawned overcast and cool due to a ferocious rain storm that came in last night. Perfect beach day for me!! So I dropped the girls off at school and headed out to see how easy it would be to go to the local military beach. The bridge to the beach is being maintenenced and so you have to park and ride a bus, take a ferry and ride a little tram to get to the beach itself. But in reality, you can just park and walk to the ferry and then walk from the ferry to the middle of the beach in just a ffew minutes. So I planned on spending maybe an hour walking on the beach?? Well 3 hrs later and 2 pockets full of beach treasures I just had to say I was done and head back for lunch. Besides I promised the girls to take them to the same beach after school which was just in 2 short hrs. So I quick like a bunny ate some lunch, packed some dinner, played with the dogs, folded some laundry and headed back to pick up the girls. I did get them to walk to the ferry stop but after riding the ferry they just had to also ride the little tram all the way to the north end of the beach. The tide was a bit high so beachcombing was not as good as in the morning but I did still glean some great orange irredescent shells and a lot of sharks teeth. But no sand dollars darn it!!

So everything so far is going well except Maddy is not going to sleep right now and will probably be hell on wheels in the morning. Even more than me!! I haven't gotten lost even once, the dogs have not pottied in the house, the car is acting fairly nicely and the girls haven't seemed to miss their parents. I just keep wondering when the honeymoon will be over and the fun will begin!! See you all tomorrow...
