Vintage Adventures

Howdy! I'm a crafty gal living in the Golden State of California; all about vintage clothes, swing dancing, knitting, cooking, books
and adventures!

{Back to Texas}

Well I'm back in Texas now *gags*.
My family has just left to go back to California.
I feel.. empty and alone.
But at least we had a blast over the past 2 weeks!

Wine on the beach

We were all amazed at how warm the Gulf water was. Living on the west coast, we're used to the cold water of the Pacific.

Travis always teases me that I'm a vampire because my teeth are abnormally sharp, my body temperature is always low (from being vegan.. no foreign animal proteins present hence no big chemical reactions to produce heat) and I always stay out of the sun (I like my skin pale and besides, I don't want wrinkles!)

There was an abnormally large amount of seaweed present on the beach. A local informed me that it floated in from the Atlantic.

Building on The Strand.

Does my man not look like a 1920's/1930's movie star?
