A few views from the last the weather I dream about in January!

Haystack Rock from Tolovana Beach, Oregon. A favorite stop for lunch at Mo's.

Crab sammie indulgence.

Walking, lots of walking...admiring the gardens in Oysterville, Washington

along with a peaceful outlook of Willapa Bay.

The Happiest and Bestest Dog on the Beach.

The boardwalk at Long Beach, Washington, named as one of the top 11 beach boardwalks by Travel+Leisure Magazine. Really!

And a little crochet time on the front porch of the beach house.

gathering of friends

Last weekend I had the good fortune of fine company; friends Tory, Debi, and Maggie gathered at my home for a few days of art and other adventures. Talented Tory agreed to guide us through the making of Santos figures and we had a great time with our creations! Here they are lined up at the end of the day.
My Santo received some changes and finishing touches after the weekend and is now complete.

I probably won't be able to resist adding a few more bits to her costume...
