Not very often do we get to escape the gallery and go over to the beach. This weekend it was HOT, HOT, HOT so a perfect time to get away. Of course everyone else thought the same thing and we were stuck in traffic for an hour longer than usual.
The best part of this was stopping near this car that is perched in a tree. hmmmm.....we had a fun discussion about this.

Arriving at the beach house always makes us smile. We see many projects that originated from the gallery such as this large ART sign from our "Different Spokes" show.

We have baseball bats that are the balusters for the stairs. My husband was a baseball coach for many years and has quite a collection of these various bats and it seemed logical to use them this way. Recycle and reusing at its best.

We spent some time visiting various places that are near our house...this is Barking Dog Farm. Heidi Erickson has her studio in a huge barn plus has fabulous organic vegetables for purchasing. We were able to catch up on how Tracy MacEwan was progressing and then started planning an event for October to help benefit Tracy.

We are always visiting our artist friends, discussing art and visiting artful locations so we never leave the gallery far behind.

I love the creative use of the bats as a railing! I'm looking forward to hearing what the October project will be! Hope to have a visit from you soon :)
