Beach Walk

Hi! I was gonna show you guys some quilty stuff, but on a glorious 70* Saturday in July I bet you'd rather go to the beach! C'mon...

Remember the boardwalk over the dunes?

It's a bit of a long hike on a hot day...but worth it! See how it goes aaaall the waaaay down through the dunes...?
This is how it ends in the summer.

It goes all the way out to the storm high tideline....[It gets removed and stored in the winter.]...

The photos aren't  out of focus, these were taken the other day when it was 94* and the white air is heat haze, heat fog!

Everything is monochrome...

even the sky and water are pearly grey with the heat...

On the other hand, look how nice and quiet it is again! The Fourth of July revelers are long gone....

A few returning sanderlings, below. Bet they think it's hot after nesting in the Arctic tundra above Alaska....

And my favorite pair of oystercatchers with [center] one big baby left to fuss over....see how he is still a bit brown not bright black?

Enjoy your weekend! Quilt pix next week, I need some opinions...so come back soon...



gone to the beach....


  1. Oh what a lovely trip to the beach! Thanks I miss it already. :) Kit PS: You take such great pics!

  2. Our skies have been "pearly gray" for days now. Very hot and humid. 70 degrees at the beach sounds fabulous! I like that collection of rocks and beach bits. I could crochet lots of covers for those smooth stones. :) Have a great day. Tammy

  3. Looks like a beautiful day at the beach. So different from my beloved mountains. Here, we smell pine and sage. There, you smell the unmistakeable tang of salt air, and organic matter that has washed up out of the water. With an occasional dash of diesel fumes, I imagine. Nice visit to the beach!
