Coastal Weekend


This is where I am at the moment. I am at Elle Cottage for a few days. We are cozy with the wood stove blazing and a pot of tea steeping in the kitchen. 

Last night we went down for a sunset walk on the beach. All bundled up we waited for the sun to kiss the horizon.


Today hubby and I stole a little time to go to the darling nursery up here. It is ever so charming.






The deer are in the yard right now and Q loves it. She kept asking all week if we were going to visit the reindeer.
Tonight it is just the two of us for a nice dinner out. I am so looking forward to it. We head home tomorrow.

CAS said...

That sounds like a wonderful little get-away, & that nursery does look charming.

On another note. I saw that you didn't have a thumbnail image. Have you been having trouble with those on certain blog parties? I have been, too. It only happens for me if the link up is the drop down version. I can leave an image when the link up goes to the full-page one. I'm clueless. Do you have any insight. It just started happening for me about 2 weeks ago. Just wondering.
