Over the past week or so some have come from Wendy's blog, The Constant Quilter, to see if I've posted a little quilt for September. I'm late (very late), but here it is. I finished it on the last day of September, the day we drove home from the ocean, but didn't get it washed, dried, and photographed till this week.
Vacation, Such as It Was.
Sometimes vacations don't go quite as planned or imagined, and this was one that definitely did not. I told my daughter I thought we should be able to have a do-over.
When we arrived at Dewey Beach, Delaware, on Monday evening, the ocean looked like this. Beautiful!
On Wednesday, we took the Lewes/Cape May Ferry to Cape May, New Jersey, only because we'd already reserved spaces for ourselves and the car. The weather was cooler and breezier than Monday or Tuesday and I was glad to have taken my sweater. And the walking sticks. The ocean sparkled.
I was especially taken by the shadow of this flower/seed pod on the leaf. I always think nature is amazing but things like this dazzle me. I have no idea what plant this is. Anyone know?
After four hours of sleep we left to drive home on Friday morning. And I awoke on Saturday morning missing the sound of the ocean waves.
What a vacation! (For those of you who said you wished you were also going to the beach, I'm glad you weren't with me!)
Yesterday I learned that there are/were two kidney stones. Tomorrow I hope to learn whether I fractured a bone when I fell.
What a vacation!
