August 27, 2011 The Day After Hurricane Irene /or Thank you God for a summer filled with mermaids and little girl DREAMS!!!



I got up this morning, the storm has passed...They say the best time to beach comb is just after the storm...So those who know me well...Know I'm off to look for treasures.( This is a picture from our Vacation.. First week in Aug.) I am still wishing and dreaming and hoping...IF YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO LIVE NEAR THE BEACH...YOU ARE TRULY LUCKY ENOUGH!



The beach was beautiful...




Now I come to this beach often...This is the first time I have ever seen the light on in the light house!




I walked the beach for awhile looking for shells..One of the things I love to do...But to my surprise...no shells...Not because I got there late...Just not a shell to be found? But I did notice that there was a lot of other stuff that had washed up on the beach instead!




So I started taking pictures...Something else that I love to do! Here are a few of my treasures...




This boat has been here for years...Did not move an inch!




More beach finds...Found two cool fishing lures...Will be going in the found on the beach jar!




No shells yet...But saw lots of these...




FINALY...after about an hour of walking, I found shells...This summer on vacation I spent hours looking for these shells with my daughters and granddaughters....My oldest daughter wanted to make necklaces with these shells (cockle clams ) with my granddaughters...Spending time with my girls..one more thing that I love to do...




Now the next thing I saw was plenty of little bags of poop...Come on people..so nice of you to clean up after your dog...But I think these need to go to a trash can!!! It was a great morning , I have never seen so many dogs on the beach... AND so many bags of poop just sitting around waiting for the poop Fairy to come and take them away...




I think this says it all!



Beautiful morning...Thank you God...I have had one more wonderful summer! Spending time with the ones I love...Doing the things that make me happy.




Summer....So warm...so laid back...My favorite time of the year!




Now this is from our vacation...I was lucky enough to get to spend time with my beautiful granddaughters...We went to Ripley's Aquarium...They had live Mermaids to entertain the little people, A salon so the little girls could dress up like mermaids and have their picture taken...Oh I had so much fun...So much so, I ask Eleanore, lets have a Mermaid party for your birthday in Oct...As you can see they are having just as much fun as I was having!!! ( They really did have a great time) LOL.




I kid you not...this was the last treasure I found after a two hour walk on the beach...If you know me well...Then you know I belive in signs... I got up this morning to go enjoy what could be the last walk on the beach this Summer...( it is the end of Aug.) This summer has been filled with thoughts of mermaids and little girl dreams for me...There was a time not to long ago that I ask God...Please let me stay here just a little longer to get to know my granddaughter...to spend time with her, get to know her, to love her... not only did I get to stay long enough to make memories with her..I am making them with her little sister...Thank you God for a summer filled with mermaids and little girl DREAMS!!!




A perfect ending to a perfect morning... All my treasures home and clean and my all time fav. cup of coffee!




These plus the shells are the things I will keep from my walk....You may call 1-800-I have found your stuff...If any of this looks like something YOU lost at the beach!!

  2. Beautiful pictures! I love the beach and always enjoy walking up and down the beach picking up shells! You found LOTS of toys! They tend to get left and float away!

  3. Hi Julie...

    Ohhh...what a lovely post, my friend! I really enjoyed all of your beautiful photos! I lived in Corpus Christi, Texas for 30 years and spent many a hour at the beach. It looks like you found some really great shells and treasure! Love the little mermaid! Wow...what fun! To be able to visit a real life mermaid! Bet your granddaughter's just loved that experience! Thank you for sharing this sweet post with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party this week!

    Warmest wishes,

  4. Good morning Julie, Your walk on the beach sure made me smile this morning. It is 59 here and rainy. I grew up around the beaches in FL. Now I am a mountain girl. I love the mountains but your post brought back memories. I love your found treasures and the photo with the mermaid. Just adorable. Wonderful fun post today.
