An Evening Walk in the Dunes

My granddaughter packed this basket for a picnic in the dunes. I carried this while she and her grampa played hide and seek. We never did stop for the picnic she wanted--we were only there for a short time.

These soft dolls were made by me and my sister a very long time ago--before either one of us had children. I made the white doll about 35 years ago! I did a watercolor painting of it here. I believe my sister Amy made the doll with the yellow hair maybe about the same time?
I must have been about 20--she was about 13, and here, on the opposite coast of their creation, both dolls are being played with by my granddaughter--I'm amazed at this!

Here's grampa hiding in the dunes.
Back home while putting things away, tucked under the dolls were a few pieces of bread and a stick of butter! That's what she packed for the picnic and what I had unknowingly carried all along the dunes that evening.
