To Grandmother’s House We Go!

Yesterday, we made the trip over to visit Frewsburg Gramma & Marv over in New Smyrna Beach. We had a great time! Shortly after we arrived, we sat down to a delicious ham dinner, and then we went to the beach for a while. The water was warm enough to go swimming, but we didn’t… they have no showers at the place we go, and there’s no way I’m making the three hour trip home all sticky with salt. Anyways, we picked up quite a few coquina shells with holes in them, which I’ll use to make another bracelet. I gave the first one I made to Gramma. Hopefully it holds up! As always, we all chatted non-stop, catching up on the goings-on in our lives and the rest of the family. And Steve announced his engagement to Kathy and showed off his ring. Sweet!

And, I got to cross another item off the 101 Things list… I finished and printed the instructions for Gramma on how to make a seashell necklace. Here’s a picture of the first coquina shell bracelet (click for a larger view). I just love this bracelet… it makes a nice soothing sound when the shells move around.
