Just yesterday Mom and I slipped away for a morning walk on the beach. Sunbathing squirrels squinted at the sunshine and rows of pelicans flew back and forth overhead. We found shells, breathed in the sky and waves and pondered the footprints that came before us.

Then we picked our very own gems in the strawberry fields, filling our buckets to the very tippy tops! Two pies later (to be shared, I have not eaten them all up myself) and there is a single sweet tart slice left...

Thank you Mom, such a beautiful morning. I'd been looking forward to our strawberry pickin' day. xo

Oh what a beautiful day! I am jealous of your strawberries, your beach, your sunshine and your pelicans. The midwest is lacking in all of those areas!!

I saw my first ever pelicans this past August, they are by far the beach bird supreme. WhereI'm form we only have seagulls, not the same at all!
