What was it giveaway winner!

I admit, I knew what it was, but not what type. So I looked it up and found out it is just a juvenile seagull, simple as that, lol. He had beautiful markings though and a nice wing span.

This is what he will grow up to look like. Though this guy looks a bit rough around the edges.

I used the number generator and number 9 is the winner, Carol of Firecracker Kid Primitives!
Carol, email me with your choice of an epattern or booklet. I also noticed I am close to 400 followers, guess it is almost time for a follower giveaway, so once I hit 400, I will be hosting a giveaway.

Have you made anything new for fall or Halloween? Check out This-n-That's fabric blog, they are having a contest, so check it out and get your entry in.

On Sunday it was so nice, we decide to keep driving and go to the breakers and lighthouse at Judith Point. It was a lot more crowded, and the road is narrower with all the storms, but with a jeep we were able to find a spot in the back lot.

We climbed up a hill that has beautiful views of the area and an area with benches to sit and enjoy the views.

We sat for awhile and I noticed that there was some room opening up at the lighthouse, so we headed over and was thrilled to find out that the gates were open for the coast guard house and we could go out onto the lawn and walk around.

Did you know that the Coast Guard Coordinated the evacuation from Manhattan and that it is known as one of the largest evacuations in the world's history. Here they guard the coast and rescue people who have no sense and stand on slippery rocks;)

This was such a beautiful place to just sit and watch the surfers. We won't mention that the area is surrounded by rocks, but I guess they know where they are.


And this guy was catching a nice wave. Perfect place to spend the rest of the day.

Congrats to your winner! What a lovely area, Debbie, but do tell us more about the evacuation of Manhattan, I've never heard of it! Can't believe those surfers....but then the ocean terrifies me anyway, as much as I love it. Too many things in it that can hurt me, lol!
