Beachcombing

My kids have been getting out of school early every day this week because of parent teacher conferences. So Wednesday after school we hit the beach.

Now before you get jealous let me point out that it was cold. It had rained most of Tuesday. We had on sweatshirts and we didn't go in the water. We were there to look for shells. We found a ton.

We also found this cool vertebrae. Not sure what animal it's from, but it was fascinating to look at these perfectly preserved bones and wonder where they came from, how they got there.

For those of you icebound, snowbound or just plain tired of winter, remember: SPRING IS COMING!



And today, something we can all get excited about: Perceus Jackson!! YES!!



I even won free movie tickets for four people so tonight, I'm there. Just! Can't! WAIT!

I won't be posting Monday, but I'll have an interview up on Wednesday. Have a GREAT weekend!

We've snow coming tonight, so not spring yet...

And I grew up near the Oregon coast, so I can't imagine going to the beach when it's NOT cold.

You are the QUEEN of winning cool prizes. Can I have some of your luck? Please?

And thanks for more beach pictures. I have been waiting for them!

(My educated guess on the vertebrae is seal or sea lion, for what it's worth.)

Just because it was cold doesn't mean we can't get jealous. ;)

My kids were out of school for conferences too, but we were sort of snowed in. Thanks for the reminder that spring is coming.
