When I tell people I live in Washington state, inevitably I get asked about the rain. But in our area, east of the Cascades, we don't get all that much rain. This is desert! The average rainfall is about 8" where the average for Los Angeles is nearly 15". But, irrigation water makes this area rich in agriculture. (And wineries!)
Water, necessary for life too little is a bad thing, as is too much. And a great source of fun and recreation as well! Growing up in Southern California, especially in my teen years, I spent a lot of summer time at the beach.
Waves and Pearl pin by Sassy Clay Creations takes me back to those days of playing and swimming in the ocean. Hot summer days and the cool pacific ocean. The roar of the ocean and taste of salt water.
Blue Crackle Pendant starfish bead is reminiscent of the tide pools in Corona Del Mar.
Dolphins! My daughter loved dolphins when she was growing up! Each year we had to go to Sea World In San Diego! This
Dolphin sculpture by Tamed takes me back to those times.
Hopefully someday I'll take a trip to Southern California and play on the beach again.
