Devan and Peep went to the Art Center for the Islands Spring Break Art Camp. Ten happy young artists spent the week learning about and creating art. The week ended with an Art Show for the parents. A great time was had by all, especially Peep.

I just can't help but love beach glass. Every piece is different and there's such a mystery about it. Where did it come from?
What did it used to be? What does it want to become? Wandering my cove looking or new pieces is so peaceful and relaxing.
