Tea & travels


Can you stand a few end-of-summer photos from Seagrove Beach, Fla., where I've been holed up the past few days? If so, here's what's ahead: Birds (sandpipers and seagulls, I believe), the ocean (of course), a pretty purpley pink flower (no idea what this is), an interesting log that appeared to have washed up on the beach, and the cordoned off area that was a protected sea turtle nest. Do you remember which of Laura Childs' tea shop mysteries centered around Theodora and friends trying to protect the sea turtles? If you're the first to correctly tell me the name of the book, I'll send you a card containing a few samples of some new teabags I found at the beach!

Alex and I actually saw buried in the sand one of the poor sea turtle babies that didn't make it, and he was still just adorable! Since today's post is a little photo-heavy, I'll share my "beach tea" reviews with you tomorrow.

The sand is so white! It almost looks like snow to me.

I love that area of FL - the sand is so white and the gulf so blue. Your photos are lovely - I could feel myself relax just looking at them.

I've been at the beach too (in SC). We actually drove by a tea house in Calabash, NC (I think I've seen the owner post on this blog) but didn't have time to stop. It looked like a cute place. Maybe next time.

ooooh - your beach photos are delightful! It 'does' look like snow...just beautiful. We have been enjoying 'White Water Park' in Marietta, but it's not nearly the same...thanks for sharing the photos. Love, Joanie
