  1. Ever since I first visited the beach as a child I felt immediately at home. Sadly, I have never lived by the ocean, but hope to someday. The picture of the butterfly in flight is breathtaking! Also, this week at my blog is dedicated to citrus, in the form of grapefruit, and your sorbet is fantastic. Happy new year!

  2. Such lovely photos, thank you for sharing your trip to the beach. The citrus and beet salad is exquisite and a delectable way to savor the bounty of winter.
