Summer Has Begun!

I always know the summer season is about to begin when 300 tons of sand is dropped off in Hampton Beach, NH for the Master Sand Sculpting Competition. This happened on June 17th as the artists got ready to begin their sculpting. Unfortunately we had LOTS of rain again this year.

I went down to Hampton Beach one afternoon to watch the artist sculpt then back down at sunrise on the first sunny day. I love nothing better then to be at the beach early in the morning with my camera, a mug of Dunkin Donuts coffee and donuts as I admire these amazing sand castles.

                            There was an old woman who lived in a show & sent her kids to summer camp.

Brimfield May 2011

April & May I spent alot of time on the road but I did manage to get to Brimfield, Ma. This is my all time favorite antique flea market.
I usually go from Tuesday- Sat. But this year I could only make it for 2 days as it coflicted with the Quinlan Bear & Doll show in PA. The show was so wonderful I didn't mind missing Brimfield...but that is my next blog.
The shoppers have the right away in this town and there are 100 acres of fields to shop. There is nothing you can't find in Brimfield and there is a buyer for everything. But let my pictures tell the story...

Now where is the rest of the bear??
