I forgot the first day of Christmas.

untitled-5Twas the first day of Christmas (yesterday) my true love gave to me, a very busy schedule and the promise of rain.  This year we have a wreath, made with love, from our dear friend Molly. It’s an interesting wreath that I’ll share with you, a bit at a time.  Today it’s a chair and a sand dollar.

I’m sitting, watching the rain, thinking of star fish from the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve a few miles down the coast.  It’s a moody place.  The fog has its way with many a day, but blue skies brings smiles to more than the tourists.  Sea Lions smile and bark at the sun, though they seem pretty pleased when the fog settles too.  Whales breach outside the reef, while at low tide the reserve shows off sea urchins, anemones, star fish, and more.

Happy Holidays far and wide.
