“What do you do all winter?”

I’ve heard the question my entire life!

When I was a child, the answer was: “We go to school.”  And I often had to clarify that we had an actual school- not classrooms on the beach!

In my teen years, the response was: “We go to school and work.”  Yes, there were year round businesses, and my sisters and I worked weekends  at a local restaurant.

As an adult, I’ve noticed the occasional look of envy OR pity from the person asking the question. Our very normal life includes work, grandchildren, and travel…and daily beach walks 😎

I was thinking about our unique lifestyle this morning as I placed yet another sand dollar on the porch table.  The rinsed versions and sea glass end up on display upstairs!
