Inspiration Workshop [Week 9: The Beach]

Pin It
"There's a place, where the boat leaves from
It takes away all of your big problems
You got worries you can drop them in the blue ocean
But you gotta get away to where the boat leaves from."
~Zac Brown Band

Linking up with Gussy Sews' Inspiration Workshop again!
This week's prompt...Eeep! I ♥ it!:
The Beach
Growing up I would visit my Mom in VA Beach every summer, I also went to Long Beach Island, NJ with my family for several summers.  Now, every year we vacation with my husband's family at Fripp Island, SC (sometimes visiting more than once, even if it's for a long weekend), and we live 15miles from the Atlantic Ocean... bliss.

Some folks love a lake, some folks love a river... for me, though, it doesn't get any better than that big blue ocean!

Both of my little chick-a-dees are beach bums having grown up on the beach.

This is from my BB last week, can you see why it's called the Crystal Coast?
The smell of the salt air, and the pluff mud in the lowcountry marshes of SC, are enough to melt my worries away... the sea breeze and crashing waves don't hurt either!

I can't wait to read your beach inspiration posts!
