Phil's First Trip To The Ocean

About this design:

This weekend the hubby and I escaped to Morro Bay with our pup Phil. This was his first trip to the ocean and the weather was gorgeous, low 70's, clear skys, calm seas... it was a perfect day!


Blue Lace Agate (perhaps, not sure) and little purpleish, blue crystals, and a toggle clasp.

    Love all the different shades of blue in this piece. I visiting Morrow Bay a decade ago…still a lot of seals?? I remember how unusual that big rock sticking out of the ocean. But back to the necklace…I love it..keeping it simple was perfect.

    Everyone meet Phil. About two years ago, hubby and I were taking a walk at about 8:00 at night and this little guy found us… He had been dumped out in the middle of a deserted street with nothing but empty fields around. He was about three months old, freezing and scuffed up from being tossed out of a car. Since finding him he has made our world a much happier place!

    Ohhh he’s adorable! So happy you found him!! Can’t stand people throwing animals out of their car or leaving them to take care of themselves, it makes me so angry. All cred to you for doing such a amazing thing.

    He is a joy to come home to! Always so excited and ready to play.
