a beach diary dec 13th thru the 31st 2015

i spent 309 wonderful days living by the sea in 2015 :-) was a fabulous last couple of weeks with book club progressive dinner, bday, xmas, scott off for 11 days, loads of swimming, hikes, shopping, eating, chatting, whale watching, wildlife loving and just all around funning!

keeping with our seaside xmas, the furry ones were not forgotten...


ended up at homegoods the day after xmas, had noticed this all winter, thought it was just to stark and fake looking for my liking...


a little day after xmas crafting was all it needed at 50% off...


smudged on some darker paints for contrast, added a little rope and modge podged sand from the beach. just how i like it, toned down, natural and earthy for next years table~


the boys watching as i work


hiking in the neighborhood...




still can't get to our private beach with my vertigo and a narrow goat trail at the end :-(
astounded at the change of our beach, what was once a large gracefully curving dune is chopped clean across the face

the tractor used to drive out this road, the sand is scoured 4 feet away...
the sands may come and go just like the sunsets, but it always makes for such a rich and varied life living by the sea~
feeling blessed for another year living my sea dream
