Top of the Heap!

Jack (aka Tooties) on Nauset Beach in Cape Cod
Monday's Riddle brought us to the beach, and Lizzy's review of Olive’s Ocean by Kevin Henkes cast a line off shore and into the deep. Friday, Margo will be stopping by to share a story with us, and Saturday, we always enjoy hearing from you on The DMS Wants to Know.

Are your fingers itching to draw something fun? The summer drawing contest is happening on Fairday's Blog! Stop by the page for more details on how to enter this exciting fan art challenge! The winner will receive a signed, limited edition hardcover copy of The Secret DMS Files of Fairday Morrow, plus a $25 gift card to Amazon.com

Today, it's all about the beach...

This week's top of the heap: Beach Getaway! 

Fairday & Lizzy: We are both completely fascinated by Tristan da Cuhna. Can you imagine what it would be like to live so far away, surrounded by the ocean? It must be very quiet and peaceful! We would love to take a wild trip to this remote island. Cast yourself off of the mainland, and settle onto this beach for a spell! ~ F & L

Tristan da Cunha, colloquially Tristan, is both a remote group of volcanic islands in the south Atlantic Ocean and the main island of that group.

Population: (2010) 264 
Area: 79.92 sq. miles

  2. Stunning post!! I absolutely love the pics -- I can almost hear the ocean ;) We are very fortunate to live near the beach, but I confess it's not nearly as picturesque as Tristan Da Cunha. Thanks so much for sharing!

  7. Oooo, love this post. My current WIP is set on a tiny little island. There's just something about that setting that conjures up so many possibilities.
    Love the picture of Jack on the beach. Reminds me of our Sandy. Miss her so much!
