More owls and a beach day..

Finished up this new little owl with wings. Trying to stock up for the upcoming "Queen of Arts"
show in mid November in Solvang.

Decided to try making some smaller owls and came up with these two....



Spent a wonderful day at the beach with friends, Kate and Anna. Kate got us into Hollister Ranch, a hot surfing spot. I hadn't been to the "Ranch" since I was 18 years old and a surfer
boy friend took us up there so I could watch him surf. The water is clean and the warmest it's been this summer so I had to go in for a dip. Someone built this funny driftwood hut by the beach and I had to take a photo!


Anna and Kate got in some good knitting time while I did a little water color with salt water in my larger visual journal. We saw dolphins, seals, pelicans, red tailed hawks and collected shells and rocks on a long beach walk. A nice relaxing day with girl friends!

Next visit Kate promised to get me surfing on her long board. I haven't surfed since I was a teenager... a little nervous!

What a nice day at the beach. I wish our beaches were warmer.

Your smaller owls are a great idea. They are so cute.

Thorsten recently tried stand up paddle boarding in Hollister Ranch of all places and loved it. Since you are such an ocean girl, you will love it too. I was the only one in our group who didn't do it, freaking about about the possibility of loosing my eye glasses in the ocean and then being practically blind until I could get a new pair. Oh, well...
Do give it a try, he loved it
