"Dip into your own soul
Find your own truth
What calls to your heart
What moves your spirit
Make your life dance
To the song of your own

~ Cherokee Billie


It's been such a fabulous
weekend and I am sorry
to see it come to an end.

I spent Friday giving my
home some loving, test
knitting a new born hat,
finishing my book, [which
I recommend] and starting
Saturday I played with Porter
all day, talked with Alex, the
birthday boy, on the phone and
could hear in his voice the wonderful
time he was having in NYC, ate
spinach-feta pizza for dinner and
crawled into bed early.

This morning I was up at 4:00 a.m.,
made a quick stop at the store for
supplies and hit the beach. While
I didn't get to see any baby turtles
making their way to the ocean, I did
get to help as a nest that hatched three
days ago was checked; out of 140 eggs
only 4 didn't hatch so that is pretty
incredible and I hope they make it
to adult hood.  I still haven't given
up hope of seeing the babies hatch,
I'm joining the turtle volunteers!

Alex won't be home until tomorrow
so tonight Mike and I are snacking
for dinner, watching the rerun of
Sharknado 3, and of course knitting.

Weekending with Karen


  1. Tracey, you live in such a beautiful area!! It must be a dream come true to be able to get up every morning and go to the beach if you're in the mood to do so. Beautiful pictures!

  2. I'd love to watch a turtle hatch, how cool would that be? I am giving my home some loving as well, my kitchen floor is sticky.....someone spilled something and it's everywhere!

  3. Oh how I would love to see a turtle hatch too. I hope you get to see it one day Tracey. Your weekend sounds lovely, and I am so happy to hear Alex is having a great time in NYC.

    Wishing you a lovely week.

  4. I tried to sign up at holden beach for the week we were there......they needed more commitment than one week!!! :)

  5. It is extraordinary to be so near such an event and to participate in some way!

  6. What an amazing site that must be! How wonderful that your son is doing so well in NYC. :0)

  7. love that you watch sharknado!! :)

  8. Sounds like a lovely the shot of Alex with an NYC officer?!?! Do turtles hatch all summer??? Have a great start to your week

  9. As always great photos. Would love to see turtles hatch too.

  10. Oh, how lovely you are joining the volunteers. It must be so amazing to see turtles hatch!
    And how I miss the beach, especially after your gorgeous photos!!
    Have a lovely day, Tracey!

  11. ooh good job hope you manage to catch the miracle.

  12. Beautiful sunrise photos...I was hoping you'd be blessed to witness the wee turtles, but now that you're a volunteer, it's sure to happen, right?! We got some much-needed rain this weekend, so thankful. :)

  13. Can't wait to hear about all the fun the kids had in NY. Great pictures, as always.

  14. How cool to be at the beach with turtles. Even if you didn't see any hatch. 4 out of 140 is a pretty good ratio. Good luck to them.

  15. It sounds like you had a really busy weekend. I love the sound of spinach-feta pizza. I'm glad your kids are having so much fun in NYC. I'm from that area and I miss the city a lot. Lovely hat and I really like the photo of the sand dollar. Hope you're having a good week so far, Tracey.

  16. What beautiful photos!! Sounds like a wonderful weekend!! And I love that sea blue colored hat! Just lovely!
