Back from the sea and knee deep in work. Sigh, the vacation was too short and too sweet but a wonderful time was had. Sun, surf and diving...everything a sea witch could want.
Brought my company's banner and had my photo taken with it while diving on Palancar Reef in Cozumel. I was at about 70 feet when this was taken. Currents were fast and the banner and I kept traveling out of the picture, but we managed to snap this one before I was carried away with the current. It looks like I'm standing still, but I was moving pretty fast as was the photographer. He did a great job considering the conditions.
A nice dive but visibility was limited as you can see in this photo. Normally, it is crystal clear but not this day. Saw lots of turtles and huge parrot fish. I'm cleaning up the photos now and will post later next week.
Got some knitting done while waiting at the airport. Now that you have to spend as much time at the airport as you do getting to your destination I usually have a few paperbacks and of course, my knitting. It make the time fly is relaxing and fills my creative void.
Once back, I managed to find a few treasures when I returned. The "itch" for junk is always around me.
Nice vintage bird bath, smaller size which I really like. It's also a pretty sea shell (which I almost kept it myself) but I have a nice big bird bath for my feathered friends in my yard. Displayed a pewter candelabra and velveteen birds in it.
I adore these decorative bird cages and this is a nice big one. Perfect for burning candles on a deck or patio table.
Nifty little vintage wicker shelf unit. I snagged this cutie for $5.00. Sometimes the deals just jump into your lap.
So it was back to the work grind last week and I played catch-up with over 1,000 emails. No internet connection for me in Playa so I knew I was going to be hammered when I got back. I hope to catch up on all my blog reading too. I have missed you all. Have a wonderful Saturday and Sunday and blessings to you and those you love. Sea Witch
