"Fun in the Sun"

I love summer! Don't you?
One of my favorite things about summer is that
our family spends an entire week together at the beach.
Below you will just a few pics of our fun in the sun.
Grandkids are the best subject for pictures anytime,
but especially at the beach. 
The first picture is a bracelet I made with a 'fish/beach' theme.


Fun in a tidal pool about 18" deep.

Boogie boards behind the kayak.

Resting in the kayak.

Two extra kids in Kayak - met them on the beach.

More fun in the tidal pool.

Our youngest 'grand' - a pure delight!
Hope your summer includes some "Fun in the Sun."
Blessings, Mary P

Duck, NC is a quaint beach town on the 'Outer Banks'
of North Carolina. We spend a few days several times
a year in Corolla, NC just ten miles north of Duck.
When we were there in May, I noticed several of the
little shops in Duck had perfect beach store fronts 
and signage. With trusty camera in hand I began
 to snap some pictures and thought I would share
 them with you here. Included are some other sights
from this very special place. I will share some 
actual beach pictures soon in another post.
 Enjoy your quick 'unnarrated' tour!

LIFE IS GOOD, isn't it?!
Have a happy & safe Summer. I plan
to be posting weekly, so check back often.
Blessings, Mary P
