afternoon walk to Crescent Beach

Crescent Beach is a few miles from my home. We could drive, but we walk. I am always amazed at how beautiful it is all year long. Walking the length of the beach we observe the constantly changing landscape, collect things and jump the three streams that run to the sea. Frustrated when they are running too wide and fast, we manage to find what seems to be the best way across. Many times I will walk the rest of the way home with a wet sneaker.

Jennifer, this is just beautiful! The colors, the grass, the shore, sky, water...my reaction was to stop and look at it, and look at it, and...look at it some more. Thank you for sharing it.

You're doing wonderful things with those old watercolor pencils...

You live in a glorious area...I miss it.

Thank you all for your comments as I explore this new medium.

Thanks Kate,
for checking back on me. I have to admit I am quite fascinated with these pencils and will continue my exploration. Need to figure out what colors (how many) to take when I need to travel light, like hiking and sailing.

Your sketches are just gorgeous. And the "wet sneaker" part made me chuckle.
