Port Townsend’s Glass Beach, WA

Happy Summer BeachBums!! The last beach stop on my trip was Port Townsend’s “Glass Beach” which I discovered when researching the area and came across this video.   He shows finding so many cool pieces that I just HAD to make this a stop.  This area, much like the first Glass Beach I visited on […]

Cotton Caftan

What a pretty beach cover-up – just what you need to throw on over a swimsuit when headed to the beach or pool. In a cotton gauze, it comes in 20 colours, including my favourite – turquoise!  Find it here: http://tidd.ly/c7c73001

Every Little Thing…

Long Beach, Washington

Hello BeachBums! Long Beach is located on Long Beach Peninsula just over the border from Astoria Oregon – speaking of which; the Astoria Bridge (formally known as the Astoria-Megler Bridge) is CRAZY!  First off, I think it is the tallest bridge I’ve ever seen, secondly it has a wicked steep hill off the west side […]

Seashells! This pillow cover is so perfect for the beachy home! Simple, elegant, and the perfect colour – although if you’d prefer a different colour, there are forty five(!!) to choose from.  Imagine instantly adding a focal point in your room with a unique accent pillow cover or mixing and matching several to create a […]

cart made just for the beach

Folding Beach Cart

Perfect for hauling all that stuff you need for a great day at the beach – this is the cart I wish I had bought (the tires on my cart are not up to the soft sand).  Folds down to only 10″ thick and has a storage case to keep it all neat and tidy […]

trestle pudding beach

Pudding Beach, Ft.Bragg

Good day, BeachBums!! Another day, another beach! This beach is easy to find, just look for the huge trestle that crosses it as you head north out of town – there is a left-turn lane off the 101.  It is not a very wide beach, insofar as beaches go on this coast, but it is […]

Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses

I so love the saying on this pillow, and the touch of turquoise.  Perfect for the porch swing this summer. This has to be one of my most favourite things; It comes in several sizes – I ordered the 18″ size and the form to go inside for a small extra charge.  It looks perfect […]

Round Beach Blanket

LOVING this beach blanket, set yourself apart at the beach this summer with this gorgeous pattern – can also be worn as a cover-up – kind of a cool idea; whip off your cover up and spread it out to bask on.  I’ve started seeing these on the beach and they’re so much prettier than […]

Relaxing Waves of Anegada

Hey Beach Bums! Sitting at a desk wishing you were at the beach?  Well do I have something for you!!  Enjoy a few minutes of the sound and sight of waves washing up on the sugar white, powder soft sands of the Caribbean Island of Anegada, BVI.     I hope that helped! Love and […]

life at the beach

Miami Beach, Florida

Hey BeachBums! Great for people watching, the beach is right beside a busy strip of art deco hotels, great sidewalk restaurant seating, and gift shops filled with souvenirs (mosaic flamingos, anyone?).  The beach is wide and white, the water vibrant shades of blue and bath-water warm.     Sun and Sand! Sandy  

travelling, beaches, sun and sand

Beach Life Isn’t All Sun and Sand

Hey there BeachBums! Brace yourselves…. So apparently island life isn’t all white sand, warm water, a balmy breeze to keep one cool, and a margarita at hand to keep one cooler. I don’t remember how I came across it, but I was reading a Discovery article about Amelia Earhart. It seems there’s some evidence that she and […]
