Beach week

July 22, 2007 1 min read

The view from our beach house is lovely. This photo was taken yesterday (even though the date stamp is wrong) - the day we arrived. Colton wanted to get in the water first thing this morning, so out we went. Unfortunately, it was kind of overcast today, and the wind was whipping the sand around stinging our legs. So, we endured about an hour of that and then had a dip in the hot tub.

I've been knitting on Kolsva. I know I should be finishing Chutes and Ladders, but this is such a quick and easy knit. Kinda like cheese and crackers for dinner - hey, I'm at the beach. Here's the back.

This is the knit side, which is supposed to be the wrong side, but I'm not a big fan of reverse stockinette, so we may have to see about that.

Every other beach house we've ever rented has come with complete with either complete linens or no linens at all. This house, apparently, comes only with bed linens, so we had to make a trip out to buy bath towels. Just what I want: overpriced, low quality bathroom linens embroidered with *cute* bikinis and flip flop and emblazoned with Cape Hatteras. Oh well. On the way back to the house there was this most amazing rainbow. It stretched all the way from one side of the island to the other and seemed to sink into the ocean. By the time we got back to the house and I got my camera, it had mostly disappeared, but I thought this was kind of nice anyway.
