My name is Beth Powanda. I am an ocean lover, artisan, DIY crafter and chef. I created this sea-inspired blog to share with you the joy and pleasures I experience every day living by the beach.

I grew up near Philadelphia, where I spent my childhood summers at the Jersey Shore. Here I am with my sister Julie in Avalon, NJ.

My early tide pooling and beach combing explorations led to a hobby of pressing seaweed and other sea-inspired “beach” crafts using objects found in nature- flowers, foliage, leaves, herbs, sticks, driftwood, seashells and seaweed.

I’m now lucky to live on the beautiful California Central Coast.

Our quaint, beach community is celebrated for its temperate climate, pristine beaches…

rocky shores …

and beautiful sunsets
