Surfrise! (Wait. I should save that for when I actually get there.)

I forgot to start in on time on the jointed back half of the first back leg and will have to either skip it for both or duplicate-stitch that part in over the blue on the first one later.

Maybe I should give the turtle a side view to match the fish. Yeah probably. I’d love to hear your ideas. 

It’s small, even if it looked big sketched on the page. So if I do make rolling waves at the top, should this be a baby sea turtle coming away from the beach? Meaning, do I change which direction I’d envisioned the tide and rolling waves coming in to? Two years of envisioning this makes that feel so, so, backwards, which I know is completely silly. I’ve been teasing myself about still being an East Coast girl at heart: the sun is supposed to *rise* at the shore. The turtle called it.

And for later: do dolphins leap near the surf or only further out? In the direction of, crossing the direction of, what do they seek out and what do they avoid re the waves breaking and yes I’m totally overthinking it to the point of silliness. Again.

You be just as silly as you want to be.

Check the web for Jacques Cousteau film clips or Nat Geo. Might see some dolphins for reference.
Be as silly as you like – it is all so beautiful!

It looks wonderful!

Play with the idea in your head, and if you don’t want to change it from the way you were picturing it, you don’t have to. You could tell some fun stories about why this baby turtle decided to go back on shore.

I’ve seen dolphins quite close in to the surf, and quite far out, too.

Of course, those were east coast dolphins.
