Stationary Cruise "the Anniversary"

Last weekend we stayed on a boat, for our 15th anniversary.  I happen to have a little phobia about tsunamis/rogue waves...I think I may have watched too many Discovery Channel specials on them.  Anyway, so a good option for us was staying on the Queen Mary, which happens to be docked in a harbor.  Pretending to be on a cruise, without being in the open ocean :)

The boat is really neat because there is so much history in it. You almost feel like you've stepped back in time, seeing all the old pictures, & some of the old furnishings.  We went out & explored the downtown Long Beach area in the day.  Found a few cool shops & bars.  We also got a good 6 1/2 mile run on the path beside the beach.  So much fun, grateful to have had these last 15 years.  They went fast!

Well Hello, November

Happy Day of the Dead today... I had to bribe my girls $5 each to get them to pose for me.  Gone are the days, when they were enthusiastic in helping me, when my artistic whims hit.

Looking forward to this month.  A few things coming up, an anniversary, & a camping trip over Thanksgiving.  Planning on making some Fall inspired art in the coming weeks.  I did this little paper collage below the other night. I haven't found time to do much like this lately, good therapy :)
