a good day for the beach

(Mukilteo Beach on Puget Sound)

I gave myself a mini escape to the beach a few days before Christmas
not to catch any rays (the sun went down at 4:00)
but to look for stones
isn't it an amazing place?
I never tire of it - no matter how cold it is

(not much sand - but lots of great beach stones!)

and now I've washed and dried the stones I collected


and painted them too
(another thing I never tire of - perhaps the most relaxing art project ever!)

I am ever amazed at the little creatures you see in your rocks.

I love your little faces and feathers, yes, I never tire of the beach either, love it in winter too. Except today it is only 18F so it's a bit frosty for sea spray. xox

Love the allure of wet rocks much like seashells each with their own charm color and shape

I spy a gorgeous "turquoise" heart stone in your second photo

what a perfectly wonderful spot any time I'm sure!

Happy Happy New Year to you and yours dear Kimmie!

I love your painted rocks. I've seen them before and even picked up a nice little round flat rock to paint something on. It's still sitting on my dresser 3 months later, but someday.....
