A Beach Day

Today was nice...
cold wind blowing but bright sunshine and the snow is almost gone!

Last weekend we had a bit of a thaw! One morning I  looked out at the ocean...and saw  one solitary intrepid sailboat scudding across the frigid ocean! Amazing.

And today was so  perfectly sunny and bright, the sky stays light til almost 6 PM!---well, instead of going fabric shopping I decided to walk on the beach....just me, alone. But not lonely...only the sanderlings (sandpipers) for company.

Back home at sunset for some hot peach tea and a bit of blogging!

And just look at these waves! Surf's up, Kansas style! From my friend Melody, who had another blizzard this week....
