Around the pillars of the palm-tree bower
The orchids cling, in rose and purple spheres;
Shield-broad the lily floats; the aloe flower
Foredates its hundred years.
- Bayard Taylor, Canopus

Beach Week and Beach Bags

On vacations: We hit the sunny beaches where we occupy ourselves keeping the sun off our skin, the saltwater off our bodies, and the sand out of our belongings.”
Erma Bombeck quotes (U.S. humorist, 1927-1996)

Back from the Tybee Island, Georgia where half the week gave us great beach weather, but all the while keeping a watchful eye on Tropical Storm Fay who couldn't make up her mind which way she was going. Typical woman to sit and stew, some would say. Heavy rain began to fall on Wednesday in the Savannah area. Pushed by the wind and high tide, water covered many areas of the road coming into Tybee. To amuse ourselves, we played Wii , walked the beach during breaks in the weather and read books, and of course, ate well. Being by the ocean always stimulates my appetite. By Saturday, the rain had cleared, but still windy with very high tides which made sitting on the beach impossible. A memorable beach week!

Shown below are two beach bags that my sister, Martha, of crossingstitches made for my beach trip to Tybee Island. The tropical print tote bag has outside pockets, a D-ring for keys and has grommets to thread a cord through. The tote will hold a small beach towel along with other items for your day in the sun or shopping.

The large black and red-flowered beach bag will hold a larger beach towel and other personal items. The handle is bamboo.
Also, the last photo shown below is a padded laptop computer bag that she also made for me. It is designed for the larger laptops, but will accommodate smaller ones and other computer related items. There are two inner pockets for accessories.

If you are interested in any of these speciality bags or have an idea of what you want made, just email her at marthaDOTspiveyATgmailDOTcom for prices and styles.

A cross between a plum and an apricot, pluots have a taste more like a plum than an apricot. When choosing pluots, look for plump, firm, red to light pink fruit. A very flavorful fruit, plouts can be used in recipes calling for plums, peaches or apricots.
