I got cabin fever today. I allowed myself to become cooped up indoors, mainly due to the bad weather of the past few days, and went slightly stir crazy. I had to get out! Where to go? I chose the beach. It had been blowing a gale all night, the power was out and I was feeling frazzled so the beach was my soothing drug of choice. When I go to the beach, I don’t leap about power walking or jogging for fitness, I stroll about, looking for interesting shells or whatever the ocean throws up after rough weather. I love the mental peace I feel when I go to the beach. The gentle waves on the shore, the tiny little birds that run about looking for sand hoppers etc. I love the various colours and shapes of these scallop shells and other shells I found.
I don’t know if you’ll be able to see them but at about 9 o’clock in this phone photo there are a couple of teeny, tiny birds that were scavenging, like me for flotsam and jetsam on the beach. I wish I’d bought my good camera with me now. Next time I’ll do better 😀
In the middle of this picture you can just see a tiny Santa Rosa plum forming and another one peeping out of its old flower. Yay! Plum jam for us to come 😀
Hope you enjoyed the photos. See you all again sooner, rather than as late as I’ve been getting.
