For our 20th anniversary, my husband and I went to Topsail beach on the North Carolina coast and spent a few days at a marvelous bed and breakfast overlooking the marsh. I LOVE the quiet of the marsh, that peaceful green, the lapping of water, the sound of sea birds .... and our breakfasts were absolutely out of this world gourmet!!!!

During the first couple of days there, the weather wasn't very cooperative, and we had rain ... but we found plenty to do. I sat on our private balcony and painted the view just as the rainclouds gathered over the marshes .....

It was a restful vacation - apparently both of us needed our batteries recharged ... and love our walks along the beach and marsh, visits to museums, and a few small towns that were utterly charming.

We've rain in the forecast for the weekend, and we could use some - but oh how the days have been simply beautiful with Carolina blue skies, sunshine and delightful temperatures. Fall at it's best!

  1. Lin, this is so moody and exciting. Enlarged on your flickr page it is stunning.


  2. Congratulations Lin. I love the NC beaches. Lovely sketch!

  3. Congratulations to you and your husband! This drawing is just as goo (or even better) than a photograph of the scenery.

  4. Bless you for your kind comments!!!

  5. So different from what you often do .... but one of my favorites.
