Beachy Bits & Bobs.....




For today.....I thought a few random pictures would fit the bill....

For those of you who accompanied me last year....these beach chairs belonged to this wee beach cottage....we actually stayed next door last year.....and I spied this cute place.....found out about it...and decided we should stay here this year......wise decision....
I had featured these chairs in many posts....even made a few cards from them....and....now....they are ours for the month♥️



Can you believe a female Mallard duck.....quacking and walking in circles....

Was she lost?   Lost her spouse?  I didn't even know they were this far south....

Hope she finds her boyfriend. ♥️



Somebody left this happy orange starfish behind in the sand.....



                                                                                    This handsome fellow visited us yesterday...

                    

Nice feet!   Wouldn't want to tangle with him.......

Such lovely feathers.....

He was eating tiny lizards from the shrubbery.....yuck!




This cute gal lives in the beach cottage....

She has friend.....who does crosswords....she was too shy for this photoshoot.....will try and get her to co-operate....


The kitchen at sunset.....




I made spaghetti sauce today....and added fresh Basil as I was serving it....

Very delicious....and the perfect meal to end a perfect day....

Hope you all had a wonderful day....

Tomorrow is the big day.....

                  Cheers!  :o)

  5. I am loving the peeks inside your cottage. Intriguing. I also love your beach chair pictures. You can't beat an adirondack chair. It looks like a very nice spot Linda. Have a good week.

  6. Those chairs look like they just grew there. They just belong don't they?

    I worry about single ducks. I hope she and her boyfriend find each other.

  7. Big Day! What? What did I miss!!!!

    Love the chairs, Linda. I just ordered look alike's for the soon to be built deck. (Spring will arrive eventually:) They are much like adirondack chairs but high like a director's chair and they come with an attached table in the middle. Very cool. I will be sharing when I get them.

    Ducks scare me. (I lived next door to a mean duck when I was a kid) But, I do hope she finds her mate. Enjoy that sun, Linda and send some our way!

  9. I think that the little figure in the deckchair must have been modelled on you! They must have seen your painted toes in a year gone past and decided to copy them! I don't think that your toes are so chunky though!! Not a very good likeness for you - you are far prettier!! xx
