Water Play

You may already know that I love to go on day•cations. I do. I love to take drives to a special vacation destination not too far away, but that feels far away.

Lately, I have an unquenchable desire to be by the water.

I am even reading Anne Morrow Lindbergh's Gift From the Sea...

Tomorrow, the plan is to go to the Finger Lakes in NY and spend the whole day at Canandaigua Lake...relaxing, visiting an antique shop, sitting by the water, tasting a sip of wine even.

I will play with my camera and journal.

I am beyond excited, like a little kid.

I even made a new set of fabric push pins, inspired by water and its plants, so that I could share a gift from the sea.
You can find them here in my shop.
What about you? Do you have stay•cation plans?
Or, any water stories to share? ♥

What a wonderful idea - I love days out but never thought of them as day-cations before. i think I will adopt that idea. It's also wonderful that you are so filled with anticipation - I think that to experience things in a childlike (very different to childish) way is the best - to see everything as if for the first time. Enjoy your day-cation and I look forward to your photos.

I love day-cations..just didn't know that's what they are called......I am so glad you have one planned for tomorrow and I hope it exceeds your expectations.....Take some pictures to show us.....

I couldn't agree more!! Day-cations are the best because you don't have to pack, travel far or spend too much money. Ultimately it's the most relaxing thing. This is such a great post and it's inspired me to plan a day-cation very soon!!

Go to the lake, relaxing, visiting an antique shop, sitting by the water, tasting a sip of wine...umm, sounds soooooooo good! I think I should do the same this weekend, and instead of the wine, maybe some fresh juice for now~
