As a school girl,
I would spend some of my summer vacations
on the rugged French Brittany coast.
With my three cousins,
I would spend most of my days
on the beach or climbing the cliffs looking for small grottoes.
In these grottoes, my girl cousin and I would hide our treasures:
shells, colorful stones and sea glass,
while my boy cousins would hide theirs:
dead crabs and other odd dead creatures, old shoes,
rusted metal and old bottles.
We called our hide away "Treasure Cove."
From memory I created this painting
remembering those imaginative years.
