Just because I am not hitting the shore this summer, doesn't mean that I can't be reminded of my families favorite pastime in our home.And just imagine, if the family changed our minds, I would have my directional sign that I made out of salvaged wood, stenciled letters and leftover Grey paint, to help lead the way
And I thought that if I needed help marking the shallow ends of the water, my orange wooden antique water buoys could help
Then there is this old wooden paddle that I can use,with repurposed decorative balls that I painted in beachy colors and sprinkled with sand, to paddle my way out to ride the biggest, most awesome waves
And I can even use this candle to see if it is dark before I get back to the shore
But then reality sets in and I realize.....
that the arrow on my sign points to the backyard and not to the beach!
