Over the past few weeks I’ve been enjoying going to the ocean and playing at the beach. Every 2 years pink salmon spawn going from the ocean back to the same river they were born. (I know, nature is just so darn perfect isn’t it?) Very predictable, they KNOW their path.
I’m right in the midst of putting together a year long program that is very INTENSE, so if I had my way I would work all day and night, but my husband has been saving me! Almost every other night we have been going to fish, since the “humpy” season will end here soon. The salt air, the sea and time away from creation gives my brain a rest and I feel completely relaxed and refreshed by the time I leave.
During these little trips I’ve been pretty much fishing with the boys, I’ve never seen so many boys (grown men) so focused on one thing before. It really is quite cute!
Of course the “girly-girl” comes out in me where I get bored from fishing and start looking for sea glass, cool rocks and the ultimate, perfect sea-shell. I enjoy making jewelry out of these little treasures during the winter time, and this winter will be perfect for that since Seattle lives up to the rainy-days it’s known for. I love all of the treasures that the sea has to offer. Even drift wood! I decorate with it too! Last weekend I made little drift wood sail boats, they are adorable!
NEEDLESS TO SAY, that I can’t wait for our vacation that we’ve decided to spend travelling up and down the coast of Washington, Oregon and California.
