We love our sticks! They provide a good contrasting element for photographs, as well as a home for fish and the important job of keeping our beach nice and big. And the birds like to sit on them as well. It's a win-win.
We are on the beach after many years working. We both like a simple life with as little stress as possible...if we were any more relaxed right now we would be in a coma...Actually, there is plenty to do here, but a few hobbies and lots of books and music are good things to have. Don't forget the beads and yarn!
