Recently back from a week in the Outer Banks, NC. The area was new to me with its endless small beach towns and picturesque beaches.
What a treat to swim in a warm ocean! Compared to our chilled Pacific, it was a dream; no double wetsuits with hoodies required, no “red triangle” of white sharks to keep south of, just simple, perfectly warm, walk-out-in-the-waves wonderful.
Enjoyed family, sweet nieces/nephews,
We couldn’t drive to Cape Hatteras National Seashore because Hwy 12 was still blown out from hurricane Irene, but all looked back to normal for the northern stretch. The skies changed as we left; humbling to think of the ocean raging like that.
JT told me that the storm might just wash up doubloons… which inspired this piece. 😉 Made of jasper, amazonite, wood bits, fossilized limestone. The large stoneware pendant is from Black Mud Studio, and the stamped sun coin is an Andrew Thornton original.
