Monday meanderings

 We had a nice sunny day yesterday and took a good walk on the beach near our house. I hid the 2021 rocks while we walked, so hopefully they'll be nice little surprises to someone this week. This morning I got out early and did the grocery, the gas station and the post office (gifts from my Arizona family finally got here, after being mailed on 12/7. So that's only three weeks, which I guess isn't bad).

There's been a bit of knitting on the Pressed Flowers, as well as more needlework that I'll show you tomorrow for TNT. 

Today we went to a 'new' to us beach--Winema Beach. It's about six miles south of here, and is sort of a secret beach because there aren't any beach access signs on the major route (Highway 101) and even when you turn off onto Winema Road there are no signs that there is any access. What there are, though, are dozens of vacation homes we've never seen before, along with a church camp (no campers in site today) and about eight parking places for cars. It's a lovely little beach with some nice dunes and apparently you can walk all the way down to the little village of Neskowin and get ice cream (at low tide--it was high tide when we were there). We ran into our neighbor Pam who was doing just that with her dog Zuni (and with Julie and her dog Emma). 

Here are some images--first, this looks like some kind of Soltsice ring.

And this video shows the nuttiness of winter waves.

My gosh, pressed flowers looks like it takes concentration!
Winter beach scenes are so lovely and understated.

Pressed Flowers is gorgeous! I've seen one or two finished and I am so tempted...but I don't think I'm quite ready for that yet.... Winter beaches always look so desolate to me - very calming and soothing!
