Mermaid on the Beach

Isn't that spectacular? I love sand sculpture. I took the pic the last trip out and she was gone last week. Not to the ocean though, she was right off Ocean Ave. I think the sculptures are the Carmel version of playing music on streetcorners for money. Gorgeous, gorgeous work.

I spent most of my time at the beach last week reading and staring at the ocean. No camera, no knitting. Just me, a book and a towel so I could walk the shoreline and then flop down & read. And not have to worry about my purse, a chair, etc, etc. It was fun, but it was too short.

And was the weather perfect for Lambstown or what? It was something like 82 degrees, I heard. That's practically frigid for Dixon in July. Too bad I missed it. I almost drove there from Carmel since I left about noon.

Ohh, GRRR! Blogger just managed to eat most of my post. Fine.

Hugh Laurie is on Bravo at 8pm tonight on whatever James Lipton's interview show is called. The Closer is on at 9pm.

Fabulous mermaids!

And wandering along with just a book and a towel and an ocean to look at sounds heavenly.

Oooo, Hugh Laurie... We just finished watching the first season of House on DVD. Love him! I think Lipton's show is Inside the Actor's Studio.
