Ahoy, pumpkin friends! It’s Day 4 of Pumpkin Week! We have an exciting event to share with you today that’s sure to capture your interest. Get ready for some high-seas pumpkin fun because it’s regatta time! That’s right, we’re taking our beloved pumpkins to the water. Join us as we explore the world of pumpkin boat races, where creativity and buoyant pumpkins come together for a day of aquatic adventure. Whether you’re an experienced sailor or new to the concept of pumpkin regattas, there’s something fun for everyone.
Are you wondering why we named our blog “Uncommonly Coastal”?
The word “uncommonly” refers to something which is not frequently encountered or seen. It describes things that are atypical or unusual, in comparison to what is generally expected or observed.
I could hardly wait to introduce you to my friend, Norvell. Known as “South Pause Island Girl” on Tik Tok, she makes exquisite jewelry from Bahamian sea glass. From Virginia originally, she is fortunate enough to have a home on Guana Cay, part of the Abacos Islands in the Bahamas. We LOVE catching her “lives” online every morning as she shares the breathtaking views of the sun rising from her wraparound porch while enjoying her coffee. (She’s also been known to share the gorgeous sunsets with a cocktail and a concert right there on her deck!)
Dream with me for a minute.
Picture yourself on a pristine coastal beach, where the sand caresses your toes, the ocean breeze whispers through your hair, and the rhythmic sounds of the crashing waves lull you into a state of bliss. Ahhh…
As you walk along the shoreline, with the warmth of the sun and the scent of the salty air, all your cares and burdens gently melt away. Then, when the sun begins its descent, painting the sky with hues of pink and orange, you realize there is nowhere else you would rather be.
