Are you tired of beach photos yet?
I certainly hope not.
I try to walk as far as I can a couple of days a week....
some black labs and kids in tow...
I wander and think.
They run around and climb rocks
searching for glass, hermit crabs, rocks & such
or they might throw a bit of sea kelp at one another....
this usually results in a bit of squabbling.
It isn't hot & sunny
instead it's usually overcast and chilly
just warm enough to unzip your jacket as you run along.
(or wear a vest and t-shirt when I used to be a local)
And yet, I realize this summer more than ever
I never come here for the weather
it's the beach
the mountains and forest that tumble into the sea
the hiking and grilled salmon and fellow knitters
sunshine is always a celebrated bonus
but never necessary
just as long as I can walk along this shore, the trip is complete....
