In which I am not at the beach


I'm not at the beach.
I wish I was at the beach, but I'm not.
This is the last beach I was at: Rehobeth, in Delaware, in 2010.
Do you remember the wonderful plant name tags I found at Old Glory a few weeks ago?
And I said I wanted to make them into necklaces?
Well, one of them was actually stamped "Rehobeth" -- like the beach!
So I ran with it, adding beachy blues and glass and pearls -- and even a tiny seashell button!
Then I sent it off to my buddy Karen, who lives in VA.
She loved it!
I'm so glad.
But...I'm still not at the beach...

SOOO...Now you have to find a way to get to VA! I have many beachy secret spots.Hehehehe...Maybe next Spring or summer ;) the whole retreat will fall into place! I'm right there with you though, we have been to the beaches on our River and a few hours to VA beach ..but are sadly going to miss out on our yearly trip to our beloved Outer banks ;(
