Sharing some Good Times!

Hi all you blogging friends, Oh my, it's been awhile but here I am and boy have I had a great, restful and fun filled vacation with my honey. I didn't post on vacation but I did keep up a little with some of your posts. I would pop in every now and then; And then said NO stay away and do vacation things. It was hard, but I did!!

So we were in Martha's Vineyard for 2 beautiful weeks. IT was the best weather of the summer, almost no clouds or rain. (once at night and the day we left was cloudy) Just how lucky were we.....SOOOOOOOOOOO, and I am thankful. So I will share some picture so just sit back and enjoy, my friends.

This is how I started everyday on vacation. A healthy walk to the beach mostly for Jack because he is a wonderful swimmer and an ocean boy! Just follow the pictures for a walking tour and views❤

"Our Beach"

Jack's swimming friends

It's funny because you tend to see the same people and dogs each day.......we all know the dog's names, BUT not the people!!

Do you think Jack has salt in his eyes?

This is a common sight on beaches. People place stones and rocks on rocks. It was started with the MV American Indians way back, in honor and as memorials for fallen heros. I just finished reading Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks. It was so good and so perfect for me since it is set in Martha's Vineyard and Boston. I would recommend this book.

On the cliffs many Large osprey nests


Drying out!!!!

Long hike to some houses

Our 1st rose of sharon for the season. I love them so.

That's a little run down. More to follow, but let me share with you some of the things I am behind in.

Remember I won the lovely Wimbleton keychain from Jane, jane-janesjournal.blogspot.com   I received the lovely package and have my valuable MV keys on it. Let me show you and the BEAUTIFUL HANDMADE JANE CARD!

Isn't this card so well done and pretty. Thank you Jane! Please check out her lovely Blog, you won't be disappointed.

I almost feel like I was there............well not really but I'm happy, very happy with my keepsake.

Well, my ladies thank you for stopping in. I love your visits and comments and I'm so happy to be blogging again. Be back real soon, lots more to share and tell you about. I took a class while away and it has to do with YARN!!!!!!! Next time I will fill you in.

Happy day to you all and thanks for sitting with me for a bit! xoRobin❤

    P.S. The jets weren't really that noisy surprisingly! I had hoped for a bit more noise to add to the excitment!

  4. Welcome back Robin,it's lovely to see you. What a wonderful holiday you had, it sounds like you had perfect weather and such a relaxing time. Martha's vineyard looked beautiful.

  10. Why is it that most crafty bloggers think that their audience is all women?

    Nice photos, by the way.

  11. Your pictures of Martha's Vineyard are stunning, what a beautiful place to visit, Jack looks like he's enjoying his seaside swim, did you have a little paddle too?

    Lovely mementos of Wimbledon, I enjoy watching the tennis in the summer with my strawberries and cream.

    Now "something to do with yarn", sounds very intruiging.
