|see, I'm really there. The sound of the waves, the smell of the salt air, the rocks and shells to pick up... it was great.|
|I love to catch a wave just as it is breaking...|
|Inside they had displays and an aquarium set up. This was a very strange but very friendly fish, came right over when I looked through the glass at him. Or her, hard to tell.|

Had lunch in an Irish pub, with real Irish food and Guiness. Got pizza for dinner, ordered online and delivered right to our hotel room. So convenient! Went to Portsmouth Fabric Co, and got some great fabric. Also during the artist studio day I met Wen Redmond, an art quilter, very friendly and great work. It was so interesting to see her studio and the things she had to create with.
Here's her website:
Wen Redmond Artist and I really wish I could take a workshop with her.
|Went to a friend's daughter's senior recital at Emma Willard school, in Troy NY and this lil guy was hanging out above me, along with some other stone friends. Creepy and cute at the same time.|
Now I'm home, at least for a little bit - going to visit my brother over Memorial Day, and then to Boston the end of June for a business conference. I am working on some artist trading cards, for swaps, through ATCs for All to just play and experiment with drawing and collage.
And now I leave you with another crazy cat picture... this is Sir Douglas Fir Tree exhausted and resting from the ordeal of shredding tissues and papers all over the bedroom floor...
