Walk Barefoot with Me...

June 20th, was a cloudy, misty day in Spring Lake.
For me, that equals a perfect beach day.

 The hubs too, that's our favorite time to go and listen to the waves crash,

the seagulls caw and just about "nothing" else.

 The beaches are empty, quiet...perfect.

 There was a sea glass hunt involved, it's always a contest...
I found this green piece and it was the winner

 Bare feet and foam, just seem to go together...

 the hubs had to get in on the action.

 A little sand art...

 a little love...

and a quick look back, as we left the beach!

Good Fences ~ Edition 67 ~

The Amazing Race
The hubs and I love the television show The Amazing Race

While we were in Lancaster we decided to have our own version of that 
adventure when we discovered that there were 
23 covered bridges in the area.

Our mission, as we decided to create it,
was to find and photograph as many covered bridges as we could,
without being eliminated.....
hehehe, you have to watch the show to understand that last line!

We had a map and decided there were not going to be any road blocks!
(you have to know the show)

Bridge Number 1

Bridge Number 2

Bridge Number 3

Bridge Number 4

This last one was a re-creation, decorative covered bridge,
in a shopping center.

All the bridges started to look the same, we were tired,
so we decided to start the 2 plus hour ride home.

This was a really fun trip, Lancaster Pa., is an especially beautiful area.
If you have never been, I recommend seeing it and learning
about the Amish Community that lives there.

It's good to be home!!

Sharing these images taken on June 25th in Lancaster, Pa. with

Stop by and consider joining in the fun, any fence or gate will do!

The Loot!!

 Here is my take from The Lancaster Yarn Shop

Pretty yarn and I LOVED this yarn jar...

 you put your yarn inside, while you are knitting,
pull it out of the hole on the top,
to prevent your yarn from rolling around on the floor!

On the back of the jar, the definition of yarn & knitting is included.
"yarn...a continous strand of twisted threads of synthetic or
natural material, such as wool or cotton,
used in weaving or knitting".
"knitting...a long often elaborate narrative of real or fictitious adventures".

Two "hanks" of blue, one of gray,

someday I hope to make this Murmuration Shawl with the yarn,
 is it not gorgeous?!

Lancaster Yarn Shop

There are so many yarn shops in Lancaster, Pa.,
one on every corner.
They seem to be "almost" as popular as the quilt shops.

I decided to visit one, so as to not obsess over it,
 and to for sure purchase some yarn to 
make something to memorialize our trip!!

I choose Lancaster Yarn Shop,
it was a great choice.

I asked the owner if I could take pictures, she said Yes...
the rest is history.
I was like a kid in a candy store,
lets take a look inside this adorable yarn shop!!

And did I purchase any yarn you ask??
Well yes, yes I did!!
More on that tomorrow!!
