working on dia de los muertos at zillyboy
28 June, back at Zillyboy. I was at the nature center 10:30-4:30, then came up here to the picnic area above the beach. I worked on the black maille collar with points and skulls, and eventually purple, orange, and pink crystals, for an hour or so.I think I’m finally getting on the downhill side of it at last. I ought to be! Been working on it off and on for at least a month.
It will have a total of nine points, with colorful crystals signifying grief, sunshine, and celebration suspended from the tips.
Then a quarter mile walk around the sidewalk loop, and I am resting a bit before trudging back to the car.
Fewer people here than last month, but the beach is plenty active. Fewer birds, really only mockingbirds singing. I heard one in three places as I walked the loop. Don’t know if it was three birds, or if he was moving as I slowly progressed.
