Friday Favourites - Beaches

After reading all your comments about beaches I started thinking about the beaches in my life. In the past year alone I've had the opportunity to hit all three coasts of Canada, the Caribbean, and Mexico. Not to mention a few lakes along the way. Most of these trips have been for teaching, so I am very thankful for quilting taking me so many places. Just had to share pics from all these beaches!


Lake Superior. Sleeping Giant in the distance.


Lake Edith. Camping with family and friends.


Three Valley Lake. On the way to Vancouver to teach with the Fraser Valley and Vancouver Modern Quilt Guilds.


Long Beach in British Columbia. Camping and surfing with the kids.


Pictou Lodge, on the Northumberland Straight. Morning walks before a day of teaching at the Mayflower Quilting Retreat.



Ixtapa, Mexico. Morning cartwheels with my girl on a great vacation with half of my in-laws.


Turks and Caicos, a private beach for the day. First vacation Hubby and I took (alone) since our honeymoon twelve years ago.


Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories. On the top of Canada. Technically I am indeed standing on the edge of the Arctic Ocean.


Hmm... no wonder I've had all the blues in my head lately...

There's little in life to compare with standing near a body of water. Salt water appeals most to me but any decent size wet spot is love in its elemental form.

thanks for the pictures, I really enjoyed the Tuk post. Followed a few links and learned an awful lot about that part of our world. it's fascinating.

I've been enjoying the blog tour - I am really looking forward to reading Thomas's book!

So question is - which is your favourite beach so far? Or rather, which is your favourite warm weather beach and moderate weather beach?

Great photos - thanks for sharing on this wintry day - suppose to be Spring but 12+ inches of snow just fell here in northern Wisconsin so your pics are heart warming!
