dreaming




Yesterday began as a gloriously beautiful day; it became bitterly cold and wet and windy by mid-afternoon. I am so eager for warmth! I've been cleaning our decks and outside spaces in hopes of being able to enjoy them sometime soon. These images from my archives will allow us to at least dream about summer. They were taken while visiting friends at Sunlight Beach on Whidbey Island. The black things in the water are sand dollars.

The upside of the rain and wind was that baseball was cancelled, so instead of eating sandwiches on the side of the field, we had a cozy fireside meal. And, Abbott was able to get his homework for the week done a day early.

I hope you are well. Happy Thursday!

I love the first photo, it's so peaceful and quiet, just like my favourite place in the Swedish archipelago... that feeling of a clear high sky!!!

Love the first photo, Lecia. Sheer pleasure.
That's a LOT of sand dollars. I remember a trip to Sea Island GA where we found a huge number like this.

I would settle for some spring now, but I'm also dreaming of summer!

I would love to sit in that outdoor space in the top photo. What an amazing place. Such beauty in your neck of the woods. The last picture made me feel like I was wading among the sand dollars. Such a relaxing and peaceful post. Thank you for sharing the beauty! xoxo

It sounds like it was a perfect day, even if it the weather didn't hold.
