One January morning I woke up at a beautiful resort in Marco Island, Florida.  I got my cup of Joe and headed to the beach to do some shellin!  This was my first glimpse of the beach.  Oh was I smitten!!!  It just takes my thoughts away and refreshes my soul!
Sea shells, & shells, & shells!!!

My honey planned a little overnight getaway to The Langley Inn on Whidbey Island.  We had a nice drive, a little ferry ride, and an awesome time.  The dinner was over the top! Many courses of exquisite food.  I am not kidding!!! I am still thinking of one of the three desserts we were served.  It was called "Blackberries on the side of a country road".  I would drive all over the country roads just for that dessert.  My oh my!

Wisteria in the Northwest

My husband and Son built this Pergola & I love it!!
By the end of summer the wisteria will climb along the top,
and drape the structure. 
This Wisteria @ Watson's in Puyallup  is pretty creative!
They made a circular weave and placed on top a pole.
The wisteria is climbing all over.

This picture shows the weave from underneath!
Who thinks of these great ideas?

Photo's from my little secret garden tucked into an alcove in our back yard.  Our little green 1920's house is in town.  My husband planted the Arborvitae's for privacy.  He makes a fort wherever we live.  The Birdhouse was made by our friend George.

Snuck back to the Florida Gulf Coast

 Dolphin duo at Englewood Beach
Gasperilla Island
January we took a trip to Florida and fell in love with the Gulf Coast.  Our daughter, Stephanie, drove us out to Sanibel  & Captiva Islands and we had so much fun.
This last week I snuck back to the gulf coast.   This trip Stephanie,  the two little ones, and I  stayed a few nights at the South Seas Resort on Captiva.  We had a blast.  We went shelling at Blind Pass.  (will show my awesome shells later), we played in the pool, watched dolphins & pelicans, and found great little places to dine.   We laughed & played and enjoyed the warm weather and seacoast.  The combination of time with grand babes & Stephanie, the warm breeze,  feet in the sand, shelling, search of the best key lime pie, Tampa Ray spring training game,  Awana with grand daughter...... Awesome!!
