We walked all around the Matanza Inlet and looked for shells, didn't find too many that weren't broken but I did find some sea glass.
Back to Matanzas we watched some young people play in the waves. We were going to mark the spot if they got in trouble! The waves averaged 10-15'-the wind kept the top of the waves in constant motion.
The next band of rain was heading toward us so we packed it up.

First stop was Woody'sBarBQ in St Augustine! Bill had some coupons for the restaurant that expired today so we packed it up and took a drive! Being retired does have its perks.
Next stop was to the yarn shop but when we arrived-the store was filled with something but not yarn! I called the number on the business card I had gotten on the last visit and she gave me directions to her new location-about a mile away in her home (the Garmin helps)! Her husband's health had deteriorated and he needed round the clock care-she is able to do this and run her retail business, too! So, was very pleased to visit with her and pick up some yarn for a project you will see more of next week!

the t-shirt is store bought and the skirt is from a wedding dress that was given to me to have fun with and I have! The dress is higher in the front so there will not be any tripping while being worn!

I finished the goldfish mittens! I have never knitted a Norwegian style mitten before but have been hearing its siren call and when I saw this pattern, I knew it was for me!
They are very warm-two strands gives it a double thickness so it is funny to knit them when it is 100F everyday-perhaps they will hold the heat of the day in their wool!
Blue faced Leicester is a wonderful fiber to spin-I am looking forward to a good knit from this skein;
Bill has been keeping busy rebuilding his zero turn mower. The mower pan had been rebuilt and he has spent the last few days putting it all back together-his victory lap around the yard was short lived-he snapped his drive belt for the mower and they have to order it-not a stock part!
As long as I was out, I strolled around the yard and noticed the ginger plant has a cone!
I did get to finish the Florida Souvenir quilt yesterday! And washed and dried it so that it is deliciously soft and comforting! I also p...

It turn out beautifully after the wash and dry! The quilt is a very comfortable size and pleasing colors/prints! Nice to see it done, ri...
I had phone service early in the day yesterday but no internet! And then there was NO phone-no texts, no calls--very silent and isolating!...
