Chincoteague

So, here are the beads I made to match the sarong/scarf that I'm planning to wear to the wedding tomorrow along with my dress.

They wound up pretty "flashy" so I etched them to try to make them a bit "softer". I did manage to make a bracelet and probably will get a pair of earrings done for tomorrow. I don't have the chain with me that I would like to use to make the necklace from the extra large straught sided lentil. Maybe I can make it into a pendant since I do have some silver wire with me.... we'll see.

So, the day today was mainly spent driving to Chincoteague. This is the view from our balcony - sunset over the Chesapeake Bay... a "God sky".

I used to come this route when I was traveling back and forth from Norfolk for some medical stuff over 20 years ago. It used to be so much easier back then - or at least it seemed easier.

The roads seem to be much improved although also much busier.. I really did love the trip back then and, in fact, would drive it from time to time just to visit friends who were going through procedures at different times than I was!
