A few pictures on our last night

We were supposed to leave today but the weather on Friday was just beautiful that we extended our stay by one day. We will go back tomorrow and hope the ferries are not too busy on a Sunday afternoon.

We were out very early Friday for a walk in a 0.0 foot tide. I love to walk the beach in a really low tide. You can go places that you can't usually get to because of the surf and water.

This is a view from a part of Cox Bay that we could not walk to unless the tide is really low. Usually this bit of beach is under water. There is a little bluff above the beach has a few houses built there. Rumor has it (on fairly good authority) that John Travolta has built a house up there. That's my story and I'm sticking to it -- LOL

The Starfish and Anemones are easy to see with the low tide

A picture of Jim attempting to do a bit more fishing for the Surf Perch. Needless to say - none were caught.

Here is quite the picture of Jenny, exhausted after about 4 or 5 hours on the beach. She also got to have another romp in the water with her pal Monty.

And finally a picture of a couple of Dear Jane blocks. I finally finished the A-11 block ( 37 pieces!!) After finishing that one I got another one finished yesterday and I am working on my 4th block.

Oh Oh -- dog is whining to go for a walk.......

  1. Thank you for the pictures,Pam, are so nice!
    Compliments for the Dear Jane block, I love the green fabric with flowers :))))

  2. What a delightful area! I hope that you and your DH had a lovely time.

    Your DJ blocks are wonderful.

  3. What a beautiful beach! I am glad you are enjoying your stay there. And your DJ block is gorgeous! Almost makes me want to run up and make one!

  4. Your vacation sounded great! The more I see the Dear Jane blocks them more interested I am in them. Thanks for sharing all your great pictures!

  5. What a beautiful place. I can see why you return every year. Your DJ blocks are lovely. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Lovely to see the pictures of the beach, I'm glad the day cleared up before going home. I hope the ferry is not too bad.

  7. Wonderful pictures. Jenny looks wiped out! The DJ blocks are wonderful. That is alot of pieces for a little bitty block!!! They look great!

  8. I'm glad you got an extra day! I knew it would be hard to leave that gorgeous spot. Imagine being lucky enough to live there whenever you wanted to - maybe next door to John. =)

  9. What a lovely beach. Sounds like Jenny is having the best time of all. She landed on her feet when she came to live with you.

  10. I have never seen live star fish before. I didnt realize their color! I love the pics of the doggies. Reminded me of (and this is soooo American!) Gidget and Moondoggie! Do you know who they are? Beachtime sweethearts in the 60's.

  11. Love the picture of Jenny. That is surely the picture of pure bliss!

  12. Great job on the DJ blocks, A11 is a hard one. You're motoring along with them!
