Such a delightful afternoon. I took a ton of photos and each one could tell its own story. On the Craft the Story Facebook group August is a month-long scrap challenge, two challenges each week. I have been keeping up with the challenges, easily, completing both within a day or two of the next challenge (s) being posted.
For this challenge we were tasked with telling 3 stories on one layout. I was able to easily tell 3 stories using the photograph as my background (paper), I 'numbered' the stories using digital chipboard plus a repetitive brush. One more embellishment from Ali Edwards' travel collection from 2019 completes the page, which I adore how it turned out.
When Jeff and I visited Mark and Martha at their beach house, we were surprised the 656 foot container ship carrying over 4000 cars that capsized and caught fire off Saint Simon's Island was only three-quarters of a mile from the coast and their beach house. They are now beginning the daunting task of removing and salvaging the ship.
Recently, Jeff and I have been so intrigued by birds and bird patterns. We even purchased a bird feeder for the backyard to attract more birds. In part for us, and in part hoping Athena will spend time at the sliding door meowing at the birds that fly to and fro. Thus,we were delighted by the squadrons, or fleets, of pelicans that flew back and forth overhead on our visit on the beach at St. Simon’s Island in July 2020.
I captured this photo from the ocean front porch of our friend's beach house. The rocks provide a barrier from the rising tides. Splattered on the barnacled rocks and beach head are conch shells, galore. As Jeff and I ambled along the beach, before Mark and Martha showed up, we enjoyed taking in all the unique, man-made and natural rock formations.
