Time out for a drive..

Going on a drive is one of our favourite


Asking friends to join us is a bonus.

We so enjoy the company of Connie and Joe.

We met them last year and have stayed in touch over

this past year.

They live in Gatineau and they are hoping to be

able to visit with us this summer and

return to favor.




Gifts from the sea...

We found

51 pieces of sea glass on

our beach walk this morning.

Jim found some of the loveliest pieces

today, giving him many, many credits!

We picked up a bag of terrible pieces of broken glass as well.

It's our gift to the "playa."

We always leave it cleaner than we found it.



The past few days..

The bags are getting packed.
The shells and sea glass bagged up and ready to be
added to the luggage.
Last invitations accepted.
4 more beach walks.
Reality is starting to set in.
Thankfully the Okanagan is having wonderful weather.
The transition should not be
such a hardship.







High Tide Treasures...

This weeks tides have been

very high, bringing in big waves as well as debris

a long way up to the shoreline.

Yesterday on two walks,

I found 25 pieces of sea glass.

Some very small, others that were beautiful

in both shape and color.

I collect these big shells to show off my collections.








The beach at San Carlos....

We went for a drive down the road to San Carlos.

They have a surf school there and luckily for me,

the tide was out and I had a chance to walk the beach and collect

a few pieces of glass.

I hope to go back and get a bit of sand and actually watch the surfers from the restaurant.
