Beach, Park, Crochet!

This weekend has been great. Friday night we went to Independence Park, which is five minutes away from our apartment. It's got a grassy park area, and then a beach. I was hoping that it would be warm enough to go swimming and when I got down to the shore, I was pleasantly surprised! I dove right in.

Out to Sea
I'm that little dot waving at the camera.

My husband and I relaxed on a blanket while looking out at the water. I feel so luck to have witnessed this sunset.


I was enjoying looking out so much, that I neglected the crochet I brought along with me!

Today, we went to Gallows Hill Park in Salem, the alleged site of Salem "witch" hangings.

The lower level is a playground, skate park, and playing field, but the upper part seems to be the actual hill and is sorely neglected.
This is a broken water fountain filled with rain water from the storm we had last night.


You don't see metal slides like this one anymore!:

I also whipped up a crocheted drawstring pouch today. I still need to weave in some ends, but I think I left my tin with my yarn needles and stitch markers at work.

Drawstring Pouch
This little pouch is to hold my Diva Cup. I didn't like the fabric one that came with mine because it wasn't very subtle. It says "DIVA" right on it. And I also broke the drawstring on it. I could have easily fixed it, but I thought it would be fun to make one out of cotton. If you're interested in learning more about the Diva Cup, an alternative to pads and tampons, check out their website. I love mine.
While I was waiting for the clothes to go around in the washer and dryer, I started a bag for my camera case out of purple Lion Brand Homespun my sister gave me. I think it will protect my camera from any minor bumps or falls. It'll certainly be better than the plastic bag it's currently sitting in!

Hope everyone else had as lovely as weekend as I did!
