Beach time dreams

July 31st, 2012

As a confirmed beachcomber, the vagabond has a mania for shells, sea glass and bits of sea-sculpted driftwood, whenever and wherever the water tickles her toes.  Long black stones smoothed by waves on the Ligurian coast, cockle and mussel shells collected on Atlantic beaches, all wind up in an Aalto dish (with Baltic waters in mind).   Whatever the season, this small shell collection refreshes me, pulls me back to  beaches many miles away.  And with those memories of moments wading at low tide, tumble in the aromas and flavors of the land, the season.  So, with a nod to Ligurian beach strolls and the month of August, watch for a trio of tomato tips and recipes…bonnes vacances!

    I love shells and sea glass, too, and have bowls and seagrass baskets of them all over my home. Since my husband is a boat designer, we also have other odd touches of nautical life, too, like ship models. Neither of us could live very far from water, and although we are on an inland coast, the sea is never really far from us.

    I am looking forward to those tomato recipes.
