Atlantic Beach

Last week we spent several days in Atlantic Beach, a place we had never been. It is on the coast up by Jacksonville.  

Every evening, while Mr.MW and Annie enjoyed the pool, I walked the beach...for miles.

I gathered shells and feathers to add to our collections. 

I observed the efforts of the day's beach goers. 

I added a few inches to a simple scarf I am knitting for the daughter of a friend.

I snapped a few photos and...

enjoyed the sunset.

It was a slow, quiet few days. The weather was perfect. 

The company...the best...and...

the hallway had polka dots!

Enjoy the day,


  1. These are the best kind of getaways !
    Now your batteries are recharged ;)

  2. You have an eye for great photos. I used to love taking photos of ripples in the sand and the shadow the dunes fences would make. Seems we are kindred spirits. Enjoyed the view along with you.

  3. Sounds like a perfect get away.
    LOVE all your pictures.
    Hugs :)

  4. What a lovely day. It is always so nice to go to the beach.

  5. Spending a few days at the beach is like harvesting some magic. I find there's nothing that relaxes me more than spending a day at the beach. I seldom go to the beach but in my younger days, it was nothing short of magic.
    Love all your stunning photos. Great family photo.

  6. Spending days at the beach is good for the soul so glad you got to relax.
    I love the rug in the hall it has great movement along with the dots.

  7. I used to live there. In 1969-72 before high rises and crowds. Still looks good to me.

  8. The beach looks so soothing Robyn, lovely pictures.Blessings Francine.

  9. It looks so idyllic on the beach! Love beach walks like that. Glad you all had a good time. And yes, you need to get to the MD Sheep and Wool Festival! My friend lives in the Maryland area and wants us to go down next spring. :D

  10. I Roby, what a wonderful day at the Beach/Shore. I always enjoyed my time spent there.
    I grew up in Jersey and NY, called it the shore in those days. In California the Pacific is referred to the beach.
    Thanks so much for your comment on y blog too. YES, Sandy adores every holiday. She keeps me young.
    We wish you and Annie a Happy Halloween with Peace to all,
    Barb & Sandy too
