...sea ruffles

...hello dear ones!

would you like to see a few pictures of my visit to the sea??

i say a "few" as we took 687 shots
do you think i love the sea?

i brought my muse along
to inspire me in the cottage we rented for our visit in Trinidad, CA

oh what a view!

 it was FAB-U-LOUS to stay in a cottage for our days at the salty sea

it had a kitchen, washer/dryer and a wood burning fireplace
i can't convey to you how wonderful this was

let's just say ~
this was the most loveliest trip i have had at the sea thus far!!
and bonus...my mom was there with us this time too :)


isn't it??


can you hear the ruffly sea waves rolling?


and imagine your feet in the warm, soft sand...

the beach was fabulous for splunking!
we could get right up close to the star fish clinging to the rocks!!


even though they are in all shapes, colors and sizes
they feel hard like the ones in shell shops!
and yah no,
you CAN'T peel them off of the rocks
we tried!
(we would not have kept them)


these clicked and slunk back into their tiny "shell caves"
every time you walked by...


and have you ever seen a sand tree??

...an awesome wave!!


a beautiful sunset...


 ...a full moon rise...


and have you ever thrown glitter in the air??

it was wonderful to wake up to the salty sea views every morning!!
i would definitely return for another visit here:)


it is so very peaceful

and wondrous...


i love the salty sea!!

...and so did my muse!

she said she was perfectly fine if i left her at the cottage...

while i was busy photographing my silk "sea truffles"

she was practicing her yoga...


if i could find a little cottage by the sea for our very own
perhaps i'd join her in a session of yoga!!

maybe just look for more sea truffles:)

  8. Your title caught my eye so I clicked over here from White Wednesday and then I could not leave your blog! How beautiful is this...and your Etsy shop...for some reason I think I stumbled upon it when I first opened my Etsy shop a couple of years ago. Now you have my "heart."

    Oh, yes the California coast is stunning...I miss it, but recently spent time on the Gulf Coast which is gorgeous in its own unique way, just as California is.

  11. Oh, what a happy visit to the sea! I've never heard the word 'ruffly' to describe waves, but that is perfect for them!
    Glad to see your muse enjoyed the trip as much as you and was able to stretch her pretty limbs.
