The coastline in New England is rough and somber-hued in late winter and early spring. In fact, spring doesn't even come until very late. I grew up in central Pennsylvania, a region where winters are just as harsh as here in New England, but spring comes much much earlier. Certainly by the end of March at the latest.
But we didn't have the ocean bordering us in Pennsylvania. New Jersey kind of got in the way, and we only visited the shore during the summer, the tourist time of year. I love the ocean in winter, but I never knew that until we moved to New England :-)
This is my Bead Journal Project piece for March, celebrating the ocean at an unusual time of year. I decorated it with barnacles (which I'll teach you how to make in a few weeks), shell chips, and pearls.
