Every gal needs a vacation, don’t ya think?
So I headed to my favorite Florida retreat on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico….
We basked in the warm Florida sun, got our toes in the crystal white sand, ate our fill of ripe tropical fruits (papaya, mangos, pineapple, coconut) and local veggies (avocados the size of footballs– I kid you not–and fresh local tomatoes plus my favorite right-out-of-the sea shrimp and fish that I had filleted right before my eyes. What could be bad with all that?
We left a part of ourselves there on the sand in my favorite kind of self portrait, our shadows in the sand. My wish to all you beach lovers past and future is that “you always keep a shell in your pocket and sand in your shoes”.
Beauty surrounds me here from the swaying palms to the soaring ospreys fishing above the gulf. But what inspires me most is sitting on Sarasota bay at sunset with the thousands of birds going to roost and the glow of a fun filled day setting on the horizon.
But it’s not all play here. I’m working on an exciting new blog that will provide you with all those useful hints and tips that will surely make your fiber arts experience more fun and more rewarding. So be sure to check back in the next few weeks to see what I’ve got up my sleeve. Florida has a way of inspiring a gal, don’t ya think? It’s been great fun!
