Beach Mandala

Starting a new tradition now …

I thought to get some inspiration from the surroundings for the doodles and tangles, but quickly put pen and paper away. Nothing was coming to mind.  I went out on the beach instead and came up with this.

As I finished and went to get the camera, the waves came and washed out the top part of the drawing.  I tried to recreate it, but then got confused, so I just left it the way it was. I can recreate it on pen and paper instead (I think).  Looks similar to the Tile 2, so it shouldn’t be too hard.

I tried to draw another one the next day, but the inspiration wasn’t there again.  Besides, my footprints kept getting in the way, and when I tried to smooth out the sand, it looked like smudges instead 😦   So that was the end of that.  

Hopefully on my next beach trip I can come up with something more.

Getting Some Peace and Quiet

Hubby and I decided to meet halfway for some R&R, which in this case meant the Dominican Republic.  After meeting at the airport, we rented a car and drove another two hours to Punta Cana. Don’t know what that city looks like, because we kept on going another 45 minutes to one of those secluded resorts, where we would spend the next four days on an almost-deserted beach.

This is my view from my chair.  Didn’t feel like getting up …  

I tried to get some knitting time in.  Winding a hank of wool into a ball was not easy, with the constant breeze … I managed anyway, and started another project …

The view of the pool, from the pool-side bar …

… and from the terraced dining area.

This is the spot I claimed as my base when on the beach.

Really nice and peaceful, just listening to the waves and the wind …

Sit Back and Relax

And this is why I’ve been quiet recently …

Secluded beach … spotty wifi … an hour’s drive to a proper town … Yep … just going to sit and relax for now …

I’ll see you all in a bit soon …
