"She seemed to come suddenly upon happiness as if she had surprised a butterfly in the Winter woods"

well, here I am home but oh, I do like to be beside the seaside!

I had a wonderful time away by the sea-side.... every morning I would wake up and quietly slip outside to walk along the beach by my SELF.. I left Joe asleep and walked up the hill along the boardwalk, absorbing the energy of the ocean and then I would take my shoes off and walk along the beach. Sometimes stopping to collect shells, sometimes running from the waves that were crashing in onto the sand, sometimes allowing the seaweed to wrap around my feet. Shivering with delight at the cold water on my warm feet. I was a child again, yet I was the wise woman that I have become. I was content and happy. I found some treasures for my mermaid faery friends and discovered a wonderful shop called the Gnostic Forrest.
I have so much to share... my thoughts and reflections as I walked on the seashore, photos of my time away & yes, photos of my faery birthday... but I will post them all over the next few days...
today is the new moon... a new moon in Capricorn - a good time to smudge yourself and your home and a good time to let go of outdated habits.. a good time to cultivate patience in your soul (lord, what a difficult lesson for me!). I hope you are all feeling wonderful... I know I am - I feel blessed right now.. take time today to nurture your soul.

I'm so glad you had such a good time, it would be so nice to be beside the sea again. Since moving to Canada from England I miss the sea.

We live a good 8 hours from the ocean.
it amazing how big it actual is.
Now I wonder when marine mammals see land from the ocean I now wonder what they think about land.

Wednesday Evening I'm going to see an Astrology speak at the Gardenia center unless the roads a super slick.

I live within an hour of the ocean. My favourite time is off- season, when the beaches are deserted, when the wind whips my hair, and salt spray is on my lips. When the power of the sea is evident and breathtaking and beautiful.

I am glad you had a nice visit. I think because I live close to the sea I take it for granted sometimes. I am looking forward to your photos and seeing it from your eyes.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time - I love the wildness of the rough weather seas ... just so long as both my feet are on dry land *!*

I had a great aunt named Viola - everyone called her Vi - I always loved her full name though.

I'm glad you had such an amazing time - going to the beach (seashore) is something that always makes me feel healed. There's nothing like it for making me feel refreshed and renewed. What a lovely way to celebrate. Blessings and bliss to you this new year of you, Robyn~XOXO
