Caribbean Christmas Tree

Last night, before supper we all went to the beach to walk around and explore.
The "Christmas Breeze" is blowing and it is soooo comfortable.

The crisp blue Caribbean was intertwined with swirls of foamy waves.
I love smelling the salty air and feeling the wind in my hair.

With a project in mind, I had the princesses help me gather up several sticks of driftwood.
This is what I came up with.
My little Caribbean Christmas Tree.
All from my beach!
 I had Prince help me....power tools are not my friends!
He had a dowel rod left over from a project.
This, in itself, is a miracle.  You can't buy them on the Island, his dad brought it from the States.
Thanks, Papa.

Merry Christmas,  Island style!  I love it!

Such a fun idea, and it really does look Christmasy in a Jamaican kind of way!
