Green gem
Green gem

It was cloudy and gray and wonderfully atmospheric on the beach today from 4 to 5:30.  This rock looks like it could have been formed from sand in a pattern similar to what it is sitting next to.  Its green is glorious and unusual.  The cycles of time…

We were walking with friends who helped me find the names of some of the shore birds:  Pacific gull, sandpiper (the skitterers!), marbled godwit, and Heerman’s gull.  I do need a bird book!

My bird photos disappoint me.  They miss the essence of bird-ness.  There is something poignant about birds that makes me happy and sad at the same time.
