A Short Vacation

We are taking a little stay-at-home-on-the-island vacation this week to enjoy time with our daughter, visiting from Outside. 

We went Out the Road for a long hike and a hot dog picnic yesterday.  The tide was out and this rocky place on the tide flats begged for investigation.

Flossy and our girl examining a crab shell
lichens in an amazing shade of chartreuse - they apparently survive under salt water at high tide

Back to reality next week, but it has been quite relaxing to be away from the usual routine for a few days.  Hope you are all having a good weekend as well.


  1. Ha Sus, think the two of you had some lovely time together !!!
    Love the greens, of the sea, not yet of spring ...
    ... and a good weekend !

  2. staycations are often the most restful
    and to spend time with a loved one is always restorative

  3. honestly, is there anywhere that lichens can't live? i admire them so much...

    your vacation sounds so restful and happy, sus...


  4. Are you feeling blessedly relaxed after your staycation? Rubber boots are such a great invention.

  5. Beautiful colors of nature. The chartreuse is amazing!!


I love to hear from you - please leave me a note.
