Nomemade Beach Art

In mid June 2013 the temperature in Nome got up into the 80's it was too hot for us Alaskans so we headed to the beach with ice bergs floating to cool off.

Oh beautiful beaches of Nome...

 Here's a pictures of me sitting on an ice berg.  I'd like to say that it was cool and refreshing, but that would be lying, it was FREEZING COLD WATER!!!  IT WAS LIKE BRAIN FREEZE ON MY FEET!

 After getting the dog all wet and burying the kids in sand...

  • I discovered a talent I have with beach rocks.  I was inspired by Sharon Nowlan from the Nova Scotia, Canada who has her pebble art work displayed on Pinterest.  I just added a few Alaskan embellishments to mine :-)
