Sand Dollar In Winter


Even in winter the beach offers beautiful surprises. My husband and I walked along the shore of a Delaware beach during an unusually warm wintery day, and I found this miniature sand dollar at my feet. I’ve never seen one this tiny in my entire life. As you can tell by the photo, it’s smaller than a dime. Do you think it will bring me good luck, or peace, as some claim? I hope so! Maybe by sharing this photo with you we’ll all have a bit of good fortune.

I’m not a fan of winter, but this sand dollar brightened the season for me. Looking forward to spring!

Beach House Dream Come True

My husband and I finally did it. After years of dreaming, hoping, saving, and keeping our fingers crossed for just the right deal in the beach community we wanted, we found our piece of heaven. We made settlement on a vacation home at a Delaware beach, my favorite place in the world.

I’m still pinching myself.

What a Beautiful Scene

We thought we’d need the Property Brothers to help us find a fixer-upper vacation spot, but found a cream puff in our price range, instead. Fresh paint and new siding will make our dream home look like new. We’ve been picking out colors and moving furniture. By summer, we’ll be ready.

I just pinched myself again.

My plans for the upcoming months include working on my next novel in my Florida room. I’ll read books on the beach or by the pool, or surf fish with my husband. My camera will go with me everywhere, and I’ll get the regular exercise I need. I can almost smell the ocean breezes as I write this, and imagine early morning walks on the boardwalk with the other walkers and joggers.

Wish me well, and please be happy for me, because a lifetime of saving and planning has finally come to fruition.


Never give up your dreams, dear readers. Keep working toward your goals, whatever they might be. I finally found the right opportunity, and a place to enjoy the rest of my life.

Best~ Adele
