''Winter is a time of gray velvet weather drifting towards us.....Colors are softer, sounds have more depth, the pace is gentler. Instead of resentment at the lack of sun, snuggle into the gray velvet quilt and make yourself a cup of tea.''
Hi everyone! Isn't the above quote so beautiful. It perfectly captures the soft grey winter days of February and March at the beach.
The thermometer finally snuck above freezing this weekend and more importantly the howling winds died away to a gentle puff.

sweet, faithful Gully! I forgot his bread, too bad.
It was the time of the new moon/ very low tide. It's fascinating to see the ocean floor, usually under water, underfoot as you swim!
Below millions of tiny mussel shells. I suppose Gully has dined well and would have disdained my old bread, anyway.
Snow lingering on the north sides of the dunes. And my deck has 3 foot drifts still.
More snow tomorrow? I shall bake bread and oatmeal cookies. It is winter---February---let's embrace it....
Here is the rest of the quote from the top of the page. The writer says it so perfectly:
quiet time for solitude, contemplation, reading, long conversations with
friends. Colors are softer, sounds have more depth, the pace is gentler.
Instead of resentment at the lack of sun, snuggle into the gray velvet
quilt and make yourself a cup of tea.''
