It rained today. And will rain for the next two days. Parched California needs it. But the sun was out at low tide this afternoon — or at least it tried to come out. The skitterers must have been discussing it. They don’t let us get this close, but I can crop with my camera, so here they are, looking almost like stones tossed on the beach.
When the pelicans swarm overhead, I have to stop and look. Even a pair of gulls will get my attention. I am so much more attuned to my senses on the beach. It will be nice when it is warmer and I can go barefoot. People do, even now, surfing, walking, splashing, wading; but I get too cold. In a few months it will be warmer!
