Just for FUN!

Well, you can’t have a birthday without just a little bit of fun.

And I don’t go anywhere without a doll or animal! That’s fun for me!

So we turned on the IPOD when we got in our car to make a little day trip to the beach, and this was the song playing!

But there was more fun to be had when we pulled into the parking lot at the seashore.

PS I’m pretty brave and very friendly. I met the nice couple that were traveling in this rig and asked permission to take these photos! Just in case you wondered! hahaha!

PSS Now I wish Gwen Stefani would visit my blog, don’t you?

What a riot! You really do have the best adventures.

I meant to comment on your gorgeous hair. A few days ago gray hair was all over Pinterest. I am very well into my sixties with plenty of gray in the undergrowth. I will never have beautiful silver hair. Love your little traveling companion. Here we see a lot of bikrers, but none towing a boad

LOL - that's a good one. I've not seen anything quite like that before.

CJ STITCHING AND BLOOMS said...

WOW, Very unique indeed.. I've never seen anything like it. I am sure your sweet doll Gwen loved the photo shoot. She certainly brighten up the scene. Did you find and sea glass??? Hugs Judy

Susie said...

I'm glad you spent your birthday at the beach! Love the photo shoot, and I wonder if your pretty little doll didn't fall for that big gorilla? Did they ride off together on the open road? Wendy x

Susan said...

Joyce Mayer said...

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams,

This is just too funny, when I was looking at the pictures of the motorcycle and trailer I had to call Dad to come and take a look. I can't imagine traveling first on a motorcycle (too scary) and towing a boat behind one. That is one brave person, coming all the way from Vermont? WOW!

Hugs,
Prudence

We're having a heat wave in the mountains - it's 32 degrees, it feels like spring. Giggle.
