Just Me - In A Tree

This post is for my sister, who suggested that I should post this picture. Mother took this picture of me nestled into a tree when I was about 4 or 5 years old. The tree was up on the hill on the property where we grew up. The idea at the time was that she wanted to take one every year in the same place to show how I had grown. Well- she only took the one. It was a nice idea, anyhow!

And the second picture was taken about 18 years later overlooking Agate Beach at Patrick's Point State Park in Trinidad, California. Sorry it's blurry. It was taken by my friend Denise. We took a camping trip up the coast and into Oregon. I was happy to go to Agate Beach, because my family had gone there when we were kids, also during a camping trip. And about 10 years after this picture was taken, I went back there with my sister. I still have the agates I found on the beach. Someday I want to have a pendant or something made with one or more of them. Great memories!
P.S. I found a better picture that isn't so blurry! I'm not good at all this stuff, so I was afraid to try and delete the first photo - so I'm just adding on the better one below.

Thank you so much for these pictures. You're so cute. I wish Mother had taken more, I guess she got busy, that would have been about the time I got into 4H. Sorry about that! I love the Agate Beach one! It is so cute of you and a great shot of the beach beyond. I want to go there again!! Let's do it sometime. Love T

You are so cute sitting there in that hollowed out tree. I had shoes like yours, too!

Agate beach is a wonderful place to go. How cool it would be to make something from one of your treasures.

Great pics!!
