On the Road Again

Here are some photos of last weekend's get-away. The kids drove, and I got to knit in the car. I think I could get used to this.
We stayed in a cabin that belongs to friends of Michael's. When I got up on Saturday, this was the view from the deck. Once the fog cleared, you could see the ocean in the distance.
Michael get to play with Baby Emil.
And I got to play with him too. I don't get to hold too many babies these days, so this was a nice treat.

Here are the very busy and proud parents, Michael's older son Krsna and his wife Janisse.
Younger son Arjuna and his girlfriend Alyssa doing k.p.
The cabin has wonderful window seats and Allie did some homework and lounged with Roger
Alex brought a guitar a some bongos to pass the time.
We tried going to the beach, but it was so windy we literally got sand blasted. We beat a hasty retreat back to the car.

Here's a shot of the coast. Those are cars parked on the spit.

The owners of the cabin are big travelers and collectors. This African figure next to the fireplace is made entirely of beads . The base appeared to be paper and wire.Here's a close-up of the hands.

Except for the sandblasting, it sounded like a fun time! Although that could have been a pretty cheap facial! *wink*

Nice to see your happy famiies all getting along and enjoying themselves!

What fun! This looks like a perfect family getaway. Especially the part where the kids do the KP.

Oh, Barbara, how I love the ocean! But it sure can be windy in the summer we've discovered. Knitting sure is a nicely portable project, isn't it?

Thanks for the shots of the beadman; it's amazing!

What a lovely spot and good family time for you all, Barbara.

I love the beaded man from Africa-just think of all of the hours of work in that intricate piece.
What a cute little baby too.
Regards,
Anna

There's nothing like holding a baby, is there? It sounds like a wonderful trip, except I would never have been relaxed enough to knit while my kids drove--

What a fun and relaxing getaway that appears to be. Babies, gorgeous coastal scenery, family, and a window seat! Wow! What else could anyone need?
