:A Busy Day in Venice!

Ken and I were up at 6:30 and got ready to head to Caspersen Beach for shark tooth hunting.  I only fell asleep at 2 AM last night, so had alittle trouble getting up.  It must have been the large diet coke (not caffeine free!) that I had with dinner last evening.  I was in bed by 10:30, read for about an hour, and still couldn't fall asleep.

We were on the beach by 7:30 and it was almost 70 degrees.  We walked at least 4 miles during our successful search.  We found about 150 teeth and I found a gorgeous, large piece of white seaglass.  We only left the beach at 11:30 and by then my back was tired of bending over looking for the teeth, but it is so much fun!

What Treasures!

This is the larg picee of seaglass I found on the beach!
I took it to my class and wire wrapped it.  Another

We were back to Willie by noon, showered, ate a quick lunch, and then Ken drove me to the bead shoppe for another 2 hour class.  I wanted to review some of the things I had learned last week and try to perfect some of the things I am already doing.  Again, Lynne was very helpful. 

Ken kept busy while I was there, mostly trying to get estimates and an understanding of the insurance we need for the motorhome.  We can get it with the help of Lazydays, or talk to our agent back home.  He talked to both and is trying to gather enough info to make an intelligent decision. 

He picked me up a 4:15 and we drove to Nokomis Beach for the Drum Circle.  Lots of people playing drums, gals dancing, and people on the beach enjoying Happy Hour!  Ken had packed drinks for us, plus cheese and crackers.  It looked very threatening when we got to the beach, but it never rained.  Amazing how many drummers and people "showed up" considering the weather.

Back to Willie by 6:15.  We enjoyed some leftovers for supper and plan to spend the evening relaxing.  This has been an extremely busy day, but lots of fun!


  1. I would love to hunt for shark's teeth some day. Looks like a lot of fun. Loved the sea glass pendent. You need to go "bead week" at Escapees North Ranch. It's a week of jewelry making classes. Always the last week of March.

  2. That is an amazing piece of jewelry! Love the green! I think we need to have you over when you are home...
