We Went to the Beach!

So, I haven't learned to sew yet (see my last post) but I did go to the beach!

Worker Bee. Baby Bee, Sewing Bee, and I all went to Morro Bay for a few days!

We stayed in a friend's little cottage about 1 1/2 blocks from the beach.  Did I remember to take any pictures of this sweet little place?  Nooooo!  I even told everyone I've got to take a picture, but...... I forgot.  Well.....that's what vacations are for, right?

Well, let's see we read, played in the ocean, hung out, and went out for many nice dinners.  

This is Morro Rock - the Gibraltar of the Pacific.

One morning on the beach we saw several sailboats.

The sandpipers were fascinating to watch.

Hmmmm.......what kind of sea creatures are those?

Oh!  That's Worker Bee and Baby Bee playing in the waves.  I think their scientific names are Apis Negotium and Apis  Infans.

I even took a little video of Morro Bay.  

On our way home we buzzed into the cutest and best smelling little cookie bakery.

Have you ever heard of the Brown Butter Cookie Company?
One of my friends goes to the beach often and always stops here and brings back such delectable cookies.  It's just the right combination of sweet and salty.

Thank you for coming along with us on our little jaunt to the sea.
Now I can't wait to go back again!

And thank you for buzzing by!  I'm back just in time to work on more projects!  Oh buzzzzzz!


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful time at the beach! I love to go myself. Now I need a cookie ;)

  2. Sounds like you all had a great time! Love the pic of the sailboats, very relaxing:@)

  3. So happy you all had a relaxing time and cookies sound wonderful! Yum.

  4. I LOVE Morro Bay! My maternal grandparents owned and operated a motel there at the turn of the last century (alas, they sold it in the 50's before I was born so I never saw it in person before it was torn down in the 70's). Happy to hear you had a wonderful getaway:)


  5. YES, I have been to the brown butter cookie place in Cayucos. They have the best oatmeal cookies there. Please tell you went to the Cotton Ball in Morro Bay. You picked a perfect time to be gone, very HOT in the valley.'
    blessings to you.

  6. What fun to go to the beach!!! I love the ocean!! Looks like you had a great time!!


  7. So glad you had a great trip to the beach.I think it has restorative powers! And those cookies sound so delicious, especially since I started a diet yesterday!

  10. Hiiiiiii baby bee! lol. Looks like a great place and a fun vacation!!!

  11. That looks so delightful...I feel relaxed just looking at your great pictures.

  12. I love that place as well for its unspoiled beaches. I know a sailboat is a common sight, as it is a fishing village, but I still find the view stimulating. Looks like the Bee family had a blast with the Sandpipers, the waves and all! :D

  13. What a lovely beach! It looks like the perfect place for a quiet family outing. I have always wanted to live near the beach. This way, I will have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful beach landscape any time I want.

  14. We just thought about going on vacation at the beach as well. Love the blues!


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
