The Sea Is Calling!

My soul is full of longing

For the secret of the sea,
And the heart of the great ocean
Sends a thrilling pulse through me.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

It's that time of year!

We are heading to Holden Beach, North Carolina, for a week of rest, fun, splashing, reading, playing, exploring...a yearly highlight for our family.

I have Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh...I read it every year when we go. A few other books along with some of these Moleskine journals for sketching or doodling or whatever. Stacks of books for the kids about the ocean, fish, shells, and this fun science book.

Plenty of card games, Settlers of Catan, and I am hoping the home that we are renting has a good jigsaw puzzle or two.

Buckets, big shovels, and some mesh bags for gathering the beauties found on the sand.

It should be a delightful and beautiful time!
