Another view from one of my favorite beaches in the early morning hazy light. Click the link to Sky Watch Friday to see what our blogging friends have found in their sky to share with us this week.

Happy news/happy mail kind of weeks are the best. This week it was a wonderful parcel from the very creative Diana Hetherington from Canada’s Martimes.
And then a open call for ATCs from Creative Imaginations which sounds really exciting.  If you are not sure about ATCs, here is a link to an old post of on the subject.
