Ahhhhhhhh........


What a wonderful couple of weeks...
This was the view through our bedroom window...what a way to begin a vacation!
Just steps from our patio...the boardwalk to the sea. 
Each morning, we were greeted with a different sky scene...always beautiful...always a gift!
We were even treated with TWO complete rainbows...an incredible sight!
The beach was really crowded....
And the waves were PERFECT for surfing and body-surfing.
(See the shrimp boat trawling behind the waves? We ate fresh shrimp 
almost every day!)

There are not a lot of shells on this beach...but those I found were GORGEOUS!
Sunsets were colorful over the marsh...
On our last morning...the sea was saying goodbye until next time...
I really hated to leave!


I came back refreshed and inspired.
Now it's time to paint!

Now that's a "crowd" I don't mind to have on the beach! Sea and sky watch is the best, especially from your window or your porch!

You should get a lot of inspiration from all those wonderful colors.

Glad you had such a great time, Jane! Yep. Fall is on the way...time for another show? We're leaving Iowa on October 6...

Jane said...

Yes...another show is in the works for Nov 5. Hopefully Shellbelle will join us again...and a young photographer (Ms Bake-it's dil) is going to be sharing some of her photos. Becky has been quilting up a storm, but seems to sell her work as fast as she can get it made. I have a LOT of painting to do...

Beautiful photos! We just went to Jekyll Island and there weren't a lot of shells there...but I found several sand dollars which was a thrill! ♥

Jane, there is something about the passion that comes through in your words and photos that always makes me want to visit the SEA. What a truly lovely time.
