By the Sea





I am visiting relatives who are staying in a place by the sea, and on the way, I stopped at a Goodwill and found a seaside treasure; a plate with a slight aqua blue color. 

Both the plate and the bowl, below, $1.99 and I selected the bowl as gift for one of the relatives who collects them.  

All the cousins are now over the age of 70 and are good at taking naps. Below is my DH on one of the couches.  It must partly be due to their Kansas farm upbringing, where it was common to take a nap in the middle of the day.  


We do not have much time here, although the cousins are staying longer, so I am looking around to see what I can see.  I took some pictures outside their balcony.  One of the cousins makes proper hot tea and she and I will stop and have some.

Enjoy your visit. I hope it's warm enough for you to enjoy your tea on the deck while watching the waves.

Ladies it is too cold outside so I am going to enjoy looking at it all through the windows and the car windows.

What a beautiful place. Even though I am only in my late 40's I absolutely have to have a nap every day too.
