4th of July on the beach

Grey clouds could not damper my enthusiasm for being at the beach. Hard to see but there is  a Mother eagle and her baby is on the left. Dad was in a tree just to the left. Sat and watched them for quite a while. Fishing, then feeding the baby then taking turns flying around but always close to the nest. 
Not sure who is walking who.Katachmake Bay in the distance. We hiked from the Coastal Museum down the Slough Trail to Bishops Beach.
Not the beach I would have chosen but to those of us who love the beach, a beach, any beach is not to be sniffed at. My DH and dog of love Kori headed south to Homer, Ak to the beach for the 4th of July. We had a great time and I even got some stitching time in, mostly in the car as the beach and a dog are too messy for my needlework. It was beautiful, did I mention, I love, love, love the beach.
Hope you have time for some stitching. I have now gotten all the flowers done around the border and more of the blue filled in at the bottom of some of the letters. I found that the easiest to do in the car. Got the bottom two corner blocks completed as well. Will not add the year until I am sure that I know the year it will be complete. Happy stitching to you all. Marjo
