Beach Weekend





Hi! Come to the beach! It's lovely...in a softly overcast kinda way...


I've been working late every night, making sure my quilting projects are ready to go! I get a lot done, sitting here in my somewhat shabby chair...




Just me and the little guys!
Sometimes I return from a walk and find my beach bag searched and strewn across the sand. I no longer bring snacks if I am planning to walk or beachcomb.




Remember him?




He's always right beside me.....




And he often brings all his friends!







 
Black backed gulls and a very large flock
of newly arrived from the Arctic Circles:
sanderlings
