Weekend Wanderings!

We actually had weather that was nice enough to go outside. It was so nice to get out and enjoy the fresh air without freezing to death. It was still a little chilly, but with gloves and a hat, it was the perfect day to enjoy a few hours on the beach.

Of course Bean loved getting out too, enjoying his favorite activity, rock pushing. And, the freezing water temperatures didn't seem to bother him, he kept running in the water too.

It was also the perfect day for beach combing. The tide was going out and with less people going out in the winter, I found a nice amount of sea glass. Some is shiny and the tiny bits are being collected for art pieces. I am thinking of trying some mixed media pieces.

Sunday was another nice day and a great day to take Nick out for some exploring. He loves going on trails and leading the way. He decided to mark the trail so we wouldn't get lost.

He was excited to see the tower at the end of the trail, at first he started running, saying playground, lol. But even though, he was just as thrilled when he found he could go up the tower and enjoy the views from the telescope.

We headed across the road to the beach and enjoyed some time, beach combing. Nick was grabbing rocks, so it was slow going. The tide was still going out, but this beach has steep slopes so the rocks get tumbled and I even found some nice smooth rocks for painting.

We walked down one side of the beach to the rocks, a nice spot to stop and enjoy the views. The clouds are superimposed with photoshop, it was all washed out from the sun glare.

A beach bench, made with found materials.

We ended the day at the park, down the road. I knew they had bathrooms and I had to go, lol. Nick loved the fun equipment and digging in the dirt. It was a wonderful weekend, but Grandma is beat, so today was a rest day. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and now it is time to catch up around the house and work on some projects.

Looks like a lovely day Debbie. Those beach shots are wonderful.

You got quite a stash of glass and rocks to have fun with.

Hope your weather holds,

I really love to beach-comb and have a nice collection of sea glass too. (though I have never done it in winter)
I love Nick's eagerness to get out and explore. (and your willingness to take him).
