at the ocean

A memory for a Mother carrying her twins, walking along the shore. A keepsake of a fleeting moment with wee tots and a special vacation at the ocean. What sorts of memories are you making this summer? Any plans for walks at the beach?

Yes! Two trips planned! Solitary walks along the beach are a favorite past-time of mine. Such a sweet illusration for some lucky Mommy!

Yes, a trip planned for the July 4 weekend, along the shore line of MA.

Also, a trip to the city of Phila. for a Renoir exhibit.
That is my exciting summer to look forward to.
Lovely painting Patricia!

What a great memory for the family! We just back from a much needed week at the beach. Managed not to get too sunburned and we and the kids had a ball. There is something completely restorative about the sights and sounds of the ocean. It doesn't get any better than early morning walks on the beach....

I am hopeful to discover some beaches in Italy, even though we are not at the beach! But we might plan some trip to the Adriatic Sea!

You are a master at capturing those lovely moments! very sweet!

My parents own a house at the beach, so we usually spend a lot of time there during the summer. We will take several long weekends and at least one full week this summer. I love the easy days at the coast. Carla

Beautiful drawing!!! I'm starting to hit "panic mode" as I realized we are leaving Friday afternoon for Paris and still so much to plan/coordinate. I broke down and made a slim notebook for myself....just getting organized is helping calm the nerves. SO EXCITED!!

Love the note cards!! And yes, I plan to spend as much time at the beach as possible. Luckily I live about 7 miles from the ocean..easy and fun entertain for my kids, and me!!!
