A little fun in the sun

 I love the sun
and the sand
So any chance I get to sneak away to the beach I'm all in.
We loaded the kids up and went down to the Ft. Myers area for a little fun before school starts.

There's nothing better than getting up with the sun and walking the beach to see what the tide washed in.  I found an area where shells and pieces of sand dollars stuck on the branches of trees.  It was really cool. 

 How beautiful.
It almost doesn't look real.  

One morning we got up early and headed out to Sanibel Island to do a little shelling and we got a little more than we bargained for.
A pod of dolphins were playing in the shallows with their baby.
They swam around the kids and played for the longest time.  Taylor was fearless and was in the middle of it the whole time.  I, on the other hand, stayed on the beach with the camera.
Then after a half hour or so my Mom says....'are we sure those are dolphins.'
Oh my gosh....
That's my Mom for ya : )

And while we were sunning and playing a dear friend of mine called.....Pat from R & R Reproduction Linens.  Pat and Ann live in Virginia Beach so they know all about fun in the sun : )
I have fallen in love with their linens and I used their 32 count Liberty Gathering Grey for my newest Wool & Flax Pocket Roll pattern.  And I used a lot of their linens in my book that will be released in Sept.
 You can buy linen directly from them and they have the Liberty Gathering Grey in stock.

Oh, and here is how you make the Spiced Honey

I keep mine in a little half pint canning jar and I have 1 cinnamon stick, 2 star anise and 5 or 6 cloves.
I heat up the honey in the microwave and pour it over the spices.  
And as it runs low I just add a little more warm honey to the same spices.
My mouth is watering

Have a great day my friends....I'm off to hopefully do a little stitching

"are you sure they are dolpins?" That is too funny and I'm thinking that quote will be brought up at family gatherings in the future! Glad you are having a nice vacation. Safe travels home. ~Ann
