I ♥ the Beach: It's True!


I ♥ the Beach

When I found this amalgam of 3 shells joined as one by Mother Nature, I instantly thought "It's a heart!" On second reflection, though, it looks a little like one of those lonesome cattle head skeletons, hanging on a barbed wire fence out in the Wild, Wild West.

We're headed home to DC today. I'm a tad sad to leave the sand & the surf, but happy to be going home to nest, if only for 2 days. Headed out to see Ella Numera Una in the Upper Midwest next week. Methinks Wisconsin's "almost" Spring-like weather will be a shock to the system!

Cate at Show My Face sponsors 6-Word Saturday each week. My 6 words are in my title. You should visit over there and share, too!

My family loves the beach too, I don't think we could ever live away from it (we're in Va. Beach). Happy SITS Saturday! We keep a bucket of shells by our front door at all times to help us remember during the winter that the summer and beach will be around soon!

Oh I love the beach too! I grew up in Southern Calif. and spent so much time at the beach. Now I live in the midwest and only see the beach on occasional vacations...but I shall never stop loving it!

Happy Saturday!

You should always go with your FIRST thought. Hearts vs. cattle skulls...yes, first though is always better.

Your beach vacation is ending?? *sads* I'm not sure what the midwest is like in March but maybe pack something other than flip flops...

Tara R. said...
