When the park at the entrance to the beach in our neighborhood had its redo a couple of years ago, we bought a memorial tile to be added to the wall.  These walls surround the grassy areas, the area going down to the water, and the children's playground. Our tile is visible right as you walk up from the sea.  I love all the colors the artist used and she added real seashells to her castings as well. Some of the tiles explain sea life, like lobsters and seaweed, so they're even educational.  Most of the tiles depict the names of neighboring families, people who enjoy the area or sentiments about living down here.  I LOVE SOLANA BEACH!  I love raising my family here and now we're memorialized for all time.  So now,  back to the remodel.

How about some updates?  Our project has gone so slowly but, now seems to have taken on a speed of its own.  I will show you a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  I can't believe how much we are getting done.





Haven't even taken the labels off or installed the hardware yet!

Just the other side of this window is where my tubby will be.  Remember this post?
"Tubby Time"


We have a ways to go but, we've come a long way baby!

Love you more than all the sunny days of Spring and Summer up ahead.
