Day 251 – nautical knots

I don’t want to dwell much today on my accomplishments since my heart is heavy for those down the street with the Seaside Park/Heights Boardwalk fire and also in Colorado where we lived just a short month ago with the horrendous flooding. Praying for those affected in Colorado and also, the 32 businesses that were lost here-all those people out of work! Ugh.
However, I did just learn how to do the cool Monkey Fist nautical knot. 🙂
Check out this tutorial where I learned it after several tries.

Here are the two different sizes I made along with a photo from the beach yesterday looking north towards the boardwalk fire. 😦
