Traveling Quilt Thursday

This is the new (to us) life saving station at the foot of Bonner bridge.  This is the view from the parking lot.  Of course I wanted to go over and take a picture with the quilt.  Husband hesitated as it was a good little walk.  We had done it before several years back when the old life saving station was beyond repair and nearly covered in sand.  Also when we were much younger.
The parking lot leads out to these rocks, where a lot of people come to fish.  We saw a few tying their luck.
After we passed the rocks, we headed in on this small path through all the sea grasses to get to the building.  I was carrying the quilt and didn't know that as I brushed by I was picking up some of the biggest sand spurs ever on my quilt, jeans, and shoes.
Looking back at the way we had come. I had no trouble on the walk over, but I had to stop and rest on the way back.  Husband had absolutely no trouble hiking the trails.  I guess I need more exercise.
At last we were here.  I'm behind the quilt and Husband didn't mind at all taking this picture.  We were in our own little world. After this picture, I posed the quilt on some old cement structures from the old life-saving station. They can be found here.  Husband was beginning to warm up to the idea of traveling with this quilt.

But you made it! I would have been huffing and puffing, I'm sure.

PS: Yay for hubby gettin' with the program!

I love quilts and this one is beautiful. I must take a picture of the one Mom gave me last year for my birthday. Gorgeous, as well as warm and cozy.

I'm so happy that the quilt has been able to travel to so many pretty places. I would have been the one out of breath on the trip back, too!

I am out of breath just thinking about the walk to get there. It was worth the effort wasn't it?
