T is for Tourist.
It's getting to be that time of year in our neck of the woods. With an amusement park or two, a world famous zoo and miles of beaches, we live in a favorite vacation destination. Not complainin' just stating the facts. Mostly we locals tend to stay close to home during tourist season, but if I may offer a few suggestions to those that choose to vacation here.
We love to share our beautiful city. It feels like a paradise because it is, but we live here, work here, drive and shop here. Please be aware that the words crosswalk and sidewalk both contain the operative word 'WALK'. Don't stop in the middle of either to admire surfers, seagulls, dolphins or the sunset. Understanding these are things you may not see every day, please take just a brief moment to be aware of your total surroundings and keep yourself safe.
We also understand that our lifestyle is casual even on the most formal of occasions. We know that you want to be comfortable while on vacation. Still please, please, keep beach clothing for the beach. We don't walk around the streets where you live in our swimwear and just ask that you do the same for us. Ladies can wear a simple cover-up and men should ALWAYS wear a shirt while traveling to and from the sand.
We are happy to offer directions, the best place to find a fish taco, how to find your way to your hotel. We want you to enjoy your time here and come back again next year. Don't forget your sunscreen - you can get the worst sunburn when the day is gray and overcast.
On the quilting front, I have a TaDa!
Sturbridge Stars is done and on the guest room bed. Okay-I got excited and just put in on the bed over the bedspread, but I couldn't wait another moment to see how it looked.
Here is a look at the original, inspiration quilt from OSV.
Now on to the next quilt. I wonder what it will be?
***a little snarky,yes. But the grain of truth is there :-)
