Yesterday we took off on another adventure...we headed out to Long Beach Island, the Jersey shore! Now, the shore is another place that I didn't really like. When I was younger, we would get in the car, drive to the shore, find a place to park, walk to the overcrowded beach or boardwalk, fight for a spot, watch for the beach tag checkers and then head home, all sandy and sunburned. Not my idea of a good time!
Well, yesterday we went to visit the teacher I worked with last year...and had a wonderful time! What a difference it makes when you're on a quiet, uncrowded beach with no boardwalk and a place to wash up and eat before you make that drive home. Sitting on the beach and listening to the ocean (instead of people yelling at their kids!) made me the most relaxed I've been in ages. Although, I did manage to get rather sunburned. The kids had a wonderful time and it was great to catch up with my friends.
Today I'm back to working on my churn dash quilt, which I've discovered isn't a churn dash quilt at all, but a shoo fly quilt! :o) Did a search on Blockbase and found my error. I'm putting the setting triangles on the ends of the rows and hope to have it together tonight and bordered by tomorrow. Once that's all done, I'll post a picture. For now I'll just enjoy the view of the ocean...on my computer!
