I just returned from a beautiful weekend at the beach!!! The beach in the fall is wonderful! There are very few people on the beach, so it is very different from going in the summer when everyone is out enjoying the sun/sand. I had the beach nearly to myself when I went out for a walk. It was very quiet and peaceful.
When I arrived at the beach, I unpacked and then enjoyed a lovely walk on the beach. This is what it looks like from both directions during the off-season. Beauty – just as God created it! It was just me and the birds! LOL! They didn’t seem to mind.
After my walk, I went out to the porch swing and enjoyed some stitching time while there was still sunlight to work by. As you may be able to see, I’m working on my next Alabama Chanin style garment. It doesn’t get better than this – a glass of wine and stitching as I overlook the canal!!! I could hear the ocean waves as well.
Friday and Saturday I spent time teaching the Stranded Smockers and Stitchers Guild. What a delightful group of ladies! We all had fun and they were a great group to teach and we had a nice room for the class. These ladies work so hard to put on Sewing At The Beach each January – it was really nice to be able to spend time with them when they weren’t “working”. I’m so glad that they invited me to come and teach!
After class I returned to the beach house and enjoyed one last evening and morning there with a walk on the beach.
Sunday morning sunrise was just spectacular! With the temperatures in the 60ºs and the ocean breezes, I was able to just enjoy God’s creation. After seeing this gorgeous sunrise from the rooftop deck, I had to head to the beach for my walk and I knew the sunrise would be equally beautiful there!
I’ve returned home again and have unpacked. Now to decide on what to do for today and my next project. It was so wonderful to spend a quiet weekend away at such a peaceful place. Next time I believe that I’ll have my husband join me and maybe spend longer there! 😊
