Taking the waters...

...that's where I'll be.

As a girl who spent her entire childhood near an ocean, I have to say that the hardest thing about living in the midwest is the lack of salt water and sea air, and every once in a while I need a little beach time to keep me feeling centered and happy.
So I'm off to sunny California for a few days of beach combing—these are from my last trip—love how the sand is still clinging to them
...for some girl time with a good friend, and of course some seaside knitting.  

I'll meet you back here in a few days—a little more relaxed and sun-kissed—see you soon!



  1. Lucky! I just got back from CA which is where I'm from and I have to agree, the hardest part of living in the midwest is the lack of sunshine and sea air. Enjoy your trip!

  2. Lucky Duck! Have a great restorative time; no doubt that you deserve it... Please, breathe a sea breeze in for me? xo - Annri

  3. Oh Alison - That's wonderful. We summer on Cape Cod and can't imagine life without a beach. Enjoy, relax, and let us know what you knit. I have been searching for a wrap to knit for those cool beach evenings. I'm thinking Clapotis ..........

    Soak up that sun now. It does wonders for you (Vitamin D!!)


  4. Hope you have a very relaxing visit! Breathe in a little of that sea air for me. :)

  5. I grew up near the sea and now live far away from it and miss it every day - I hope you have a wonderful trip and enjoy all those beach moments! Emily x

  6. Hi! Thanks for your lovely comment - yes, this time I'm determined to maintain the blog despite the busyness! I'm hoping to read back and catch up on your blog and my other favourites asap.
    Hope you have a wonderful few beach-side days. Those sand-dollars are lovely.
