I waded in the ocean but didn't go surfing or swimming—I wanted to, but I didn't have any body-heat-retaining water clothing, and the ocean was pretty cold. I spent a lot of time looking at the waves.
I made 19 pieces of jewelry and I'm pretty happy with them. I still have a lot of beads left though!
