Blue crab... that is! I had never been crabbing, and it looked liked fun. So, that's what I did. I now have 5 in my freezer. I haven't cooked them yet.

The Texas coast is very much different than The Keys. I am enjoying the beaches, and discovering all their treasures. Driftwood, shells, flying kites... or just walking the beach feeling the wind on my face, it's very peaceful. The beach is my escape from the real world.

I have spent a lot of time at the beach lately. One of the beaches I frequent has lots of driftwood. My apartment has needed shelving, so I decided I could make them from driftwood.

And, with my collection of shells, I thought I would try my hand at making jewelry. It was fun making these two necklaces.
