Gregg & I took a beach walk on Saturday morning.
We walked a long way, towards our town. It was a lovely, quiet time together.
We found all kinds of great stuff on the beach: an old green wine bottle that is half-covered with barnacles, beach glass, shells, part of a rake, a basketball, a float, driftwood and an old oar, among other things. Gregg carried the oar back, and he (the guy who usually detests house projects and craft projects) made a fabulous sign for us using the oar, a piece of driftwood & beautiful brass numbers. Isn't he clever?
We also had two staffers from Camp Goodtimes over for a visit. "Pineapple" & "Watermelon" came to pick up a few donations for camp. We gave them two bicycles, a large box of costumes/dress-up clothes, and a LOT of beach-craft-art supplies. It felt so good to share what we have, and to know that it's all going to Camp Goodtimes. Though it was hard for me to go through her things, I believe that Katie would like knowing that her dress-up clothes are going to bring joy & fun to kids at camp.
The weather was beautiful here today. I cleaned house, exercised, wrote & did some brainstorming for the hospital. I'm full of fresh barbecued halibut, and tired from working. It feels good.
