The Beach, Shells & Sea Life

Day 13.  Yesterday was a beautiful day, temps in the 70’s and sunshine. It was a good day to go to the beach.  I love the white sand, easy to walk in and not hot on your feet.  The water was cool as it washed up on our feet at first, but then we got used to it.

It was interesting the way the shells washed up in groups along the shoreline-in waves. You can kind of see it in the picture below. We didn’t get to the beach until after lunch.  I think many of the prime shells had already been discovered, but I had fun collecting them anyway.  Today I will wash, dry and sort my collection.  Pictures will come later.

While we walked along the beach we watched the little birds, we called sandpipers, run up and down picking at the sand.  What were they looking for?

There was also a flock of seagulls (we think) along the beach.

We stopped to talk to others along the beach.  One family from this area had just moved back after living in Alaska.  They said they enjoyed this beach even more than the beaches they had been to in Hawaii.  Wow!  Who would have thought.

After our beach walk we went to the pier for an informational talk by a marine biologist.  We really enjoyed her presentation about the small creatures she had found at the shore to show us. We will definitely go to more of her presentations as they are offered.

Loving the lifestyle.

Until next time,

Kathryn
