Sandpiper convention
Sandpiper convention

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!
