Home after burning gas in my #fj #fjcruiser. Not sure what happened to all the rain that was predicted but it is nice to see some sunshine! Remember those families that lost #ourmilitaryheroes - the reason for this three day weekend!! #realsuperherosweardogtags #militarybrotherhood #navyveteran #onceasailoralwaysasailor

Isn’t she a beauty, how could you not love this! ☀️🌊⚓️💕#navymum

Being a Sailor, probably the few things that I miss on land are screaming guls and the smell of the ocean.. .

This is me everyday at sea 🌊. There is just something about the ocean that has some what of a healing power🧘🏼‍♀️.The way the waves wash up onto the sand then it falls away and comes back no matter how many times it happens, the way the salty mist coming from the ocean sprays the air your breathing, the way you can look out to the horizon and think that it ends there but there is just so much more beyond, the way that one on one with the sea feels like a lifetime of problems washed away, and the way that when you walk away from the ocean no matter how rough you always feel much more calm walking away then when you first arrived! 🏝⚓️☀️🌊🌻🌸#navymum

Working with @seeferry @kaelawoods @issyshoots on their tactile music installation Sky Kave for @sifa_sg was an inspiring process where I rediscovered my senses of touch and sight. I’d never would have understood how the deaf community perceived sound until this collaboration came about.

One of the pieces I’ve modified for this project based on my perception of sound and touch was this demo you’re hearing now. A song that’s entirely based on the Morse code rhythm of two words, “Stigma” and “Listen”. #onceasailoralwaysasailor Thanks for having me Jean 💛

TBT...Yesterday I wore this to my Stitch and Chat group. You know me, you know I’m a fiber junkie😍 I made this a few years ago when I lived in Florida. #throwbackthursday #fiberart #sarisilk #beads #anchors #arttowear #mywildside #necklaces #feelinhappy #raleighartist #onceasailoralwaysasailor #funkyjewelry

What a day...thanks to so many people who supported and encouraged me throughout the training and on the day.
.
I’ll be honest, I don’t think I’ll be taking on a marathon again anytime soon...it was brutal.
.
However, I’d recommend the challenge to anyone that is looking for something pretty epic to take on.
.
This should be my final marathon post, normal service of food, trains and OCRs will resume shortly 👍
.
But it’s not too late to support Sailors’ Society, the seafarer welfare charity I have been fundraising for, please do check out my page if you can donate:

Back in the day. Lol. ~~~~~
Serving at VAW-124 and enjoying getting dolled up once in a while. So grateful for that journey that had given me so many lessons.

You don’t belong in there, you belong in the open water. Slicing through the water.

This moment right before the loveliest feeling in the world! Can't wait for my #partnerincrime to arrive to Palma tonight 💕
