On Thursday, I had a lovely day at the beach with my mom. The weather was absolutely perfect. It was slightly overcast, which kept the sun from baking us too much, and there was a fantastic light breeze. We ate lunch and spent some time looking at the shops at John’s Pass, then we walked over to Treasure Island and sat on the beach for awhile. It was so wonderfully relaxing, and it was great to get to spend some time with my mom. It’s funny to me that, even though I only live about 45 minutes from the beach, I only actually go there about two or three times a year. In my undergraduate years, I used to go a lot more often. But now that I’m working full-time, I just don’t make the time to get down to the beach very often.
Aren’t these starfish earrings adorable? I got them at a garage sale a few months ago, but had never worn them. A trip to the beach seemed like a good time to debut them. I think it’s kind of fun and cheeky to wear starfish earrings to the beach.
Do you live near a beach? Do you visit the beach often, or only on occasion?
