Here I was worrying about doing no craft on the weekend, I must re-evaluate my life.

I went to the ocean today and, just when you think nothing will amaze you, on two separate occasions there were seals on the beach! You obviously couldn't touch them (although I was very tempted), but they were gorgeous, which such lovely sad eyes. I was about two feet away from the seals! One was frolicking, rolling in the sand, almost pleading for a belly rub!

OMG, what an experience. Being so close to wildlife! Talk about a natural high.
